The organization by ‘Ultimate’ and Metropolitan was excellent. It worked smoothly with no mishaps. We found Ecuador to be a very friendly place and the in-country support provided by Metropolitan was second to none. Isabella II was a very special ship in a very special place and we thoroughly enjoyed the privilege of sailing with Captain Jorje Fernadez and his crew. The on board naturalists (Alex, Pablo and Jean Roch) are to be congratulated on their lectures and island tours. In particular, Jean Roch’s enthusiasm for his subject brought us to a new experience of the exciting flora and fauna. So we would like to say: Gracias – Thank you. We would like to express our appreciation for the organisation of our holiday to Ecuador and the Galapagos (Isabella II – December 12th – 19th, 2006). Magnificient, breathtaking, wonderful etc are just few of superlatives that are needed to describe the holiday we had in Ecuador – from the High Andes to the wonders of Galapagos.
