Here is the report on the trip I have just finished, visiting Ecuador and the Galapagos… The [AMAZON RAINFOREST LODGE] is delightful. The rooms are very comfortable with a view over the lagoon spectacular and we woke to the sound of howler monkeys every morning…We spent a couple of nights at [THE CLOUD FOREST LODGE], an extraordinary place with the most amazing accommodation… The atmosphere was terrific and the staff wonderful, food excellent, the ambiance was great.
The [GALAPAGOS CRUISE] was without doubt the highlight of the tour and it is difficult to describe how much pleasure we all got from this leg of the trip. We were accompanied again by an English speaking guide, Franklin Ramirez who was extremely knowledgeable and very good company. We saw a host of wildlife including Sei whales, dolphins, manta rays, hammer-head sharks and all the birds and reptiles one expects to see on these islands. However the impact of seeing them close and seeing such a diversity of habitat on the different islands is simply unbelievable…The crew were excellent, the chef performed wonders in a small galley kitchen and we were all extremely happy with this accommodation.
