We would like to thank you very much for organizing our recent holiday in Quito, the Galapagos and Peru. Everything worked out perfectly and we had a wonderful time – quite beyond our expectations. We loved your country! Yacht La Pinta is indeed a beautiful boat and we can highly recommend her. The naturalists were all good, particularly the expedition leader, Vanessa, who organized all activities with skill and good humour. (We have already received the postcard which we posted in Post Office Bay!) The food was excellent and everyone was friendly and helpful. All the transportation details worked out well – we particularly commend your agent in Guayaquil who, realising that the delay of our scheduled plane at Baltra meant that we might miss our connection to Lima, took it upon herself to rebook us on a half -empty Aerogal flight which was about to depart,and the problem was solved! All guides were well informed and helpful and we learned a lot. The hotels were all very satisfactory – particularly in Quito and Cuzco. The Reliquario is delightful. The Hotel Carmel in Lima was VERY noisy the first night but they found us a much quieter room for our last night there. Once again – thank you very much for all your efforts on our behalf. We will recommend Metropolitan to all our friends. All the best Gillian
