Laura Agusto
We had an absolutely AMAZING time. Our Guide, Jimmy, was the best guide we have ever had. He made the whole experience elevated. The boat crew, food and all activities were just superb. Everything went great and to plan. One item that would have been useful, and maybe I missed info on it ? , would be to know to prepare enough cash for tipping the crew and guide. Besides that, is was splendid!. Many thanks for you help through this! Laura

Dear Ricky, Thank you for your email. Our trip to the Galapagos was fantastic. Everything worked to perfection and, of course, the wildlife was very special. The Samba boat and crew were very professional and accommodating. The naturalist, Luis, was very well informed and a really nice person. Our fellow boat tourists were from different parts of the world and everyone bonded very well. In summary, it was a trip of a lifetime! The trip was possible through your fine efforts and diligence. We thank you for your assistance and perseverance. We will definitely recommend your agency and the Samba to others. Best regards, Kristi
