‘We are now back in Rio after an amazing time in the Galapagos. We thought the cruise was fantastic and had a brilliant time snorkelling with sharks, rays and penguins!

Thank you so much for making that happen (for a third time!) and your patience and help with everything. We really do appreciate how much time you took to help us and your understanding of our situation. We really think you went above and beyond your job description and we are immensely grateful for it.’

Hello Dear Ania,

We are back home and still "swooning" over the magnificent adventure we experienced!!

It is going to take us a while to "process" everything as each day was action-packed!  Ania, we cannot thank YOU enough for the excellent arrangements you made for us.  EVERYTHING went so smoothly -  each transfer was on time waiting for us, the guides were all superior and the BELUGA was great!  The people on our cruise were super - could not have handpicked a better, more congenial group!  Juan was our naturalist and he was the best!  He said he knew you and your friend Sarah Darling.  We met Sarah briefly on the way back from the Darwin Center and she spoke highly of you. We thought we would get to see her later that day, but we were running late after seeing the tortoises on the ranch and didn't get to go see her again which disappointed us.

We LOVED everything we saw in Peru (Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca/Uros, etc.) and Ecuador (Quito and the Galapagos). I have never had a birthday I will remember more than this one THANKS to YOU!!  I was serenaded on the train, which by the way was like the Orient Express with its elegance and divine service!  Then, I was serenaded on the boat the first night with singing and a special cake!  I had three cakes = one at the Cusco Novotel Hotel, one on the train, and one on the Beluga!!  WOW, double WOW!!  It was the most special birthday ever!  Thank you, Ania, for memories I will never forget!!!  The Inca civilization and the nature in the Galapagos were all mind-blowing!

 It should make you feel good about your South American business contacts because everything was like clockwork with them!!

 We could not have been more pleased with our services when there!! I will highly recommend you to anyone who would like to plan a South American trip.  Who knows?  We may want to go again and explore other places there:)

Hope ALL is well with you!
It has been a wonderful pleasure working with you...I'm going to miss you:)
Thanks forever, Ania!

Best wishes always,
Ruthie and Jim


My friend and I booked our 3 night, 4 day cruise on the Archipell II through Galapagoscruises.co.uk . Ania was very quick to answer my initial emails and quickly got to grips with what we wanted and what our time and budget would permit. She was extremely helpful in giving us ideas of activities and what she thought would suit us best, based on our interests. Ania sent us a very detailed email with all the boat options and gave us her experienced opinion about them and the different islands. Additional options such as diving and activities in mainland Ecuador could have easily been added on. It was all very easy and painless considering the number of options to decide on!

The actual cruise went beyond my expectations. The staff were attentive and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Gustavo, our guide was excellent, very knowledgeable about all the wildlife and it was obvious he cared deeply about the conservation of the Galapagos. The boat itself was spotlessly clean, the cabins spacious enough and there was ample space in the lounge and top deck for relaxing. The food was plentiful, fresh and delicious and it was nice to be able to have tea and coffee whenever you wanted. Whenever we returned from an activity there would be a drink and a snack waiting for us.

The walks and snorkelling combinations allowed us to see as much of the wildlife as possible and were even lucky enough to snorkel with penguins! We never felt rushed by Gustavo and generally we had a good amount of time to appreciate and photograph all the fantastic wildlife. We left the boat after 3 nights but we were very envious of all those who had elected to stay a week or more on the Archipell!

We both thoroughly enjoyed our trip to this amazing place and Ania and her team made the whole process as easy and simple as possible. I would highly recommend booking with her company.
