Client comments and reviews
The cruise on Isabella II was excellent, everything on the boat was perfect. Nice group of people and the guides all very good. - DL (November 2011)
The Isabela II was ideal, very comfortable with interesting guests from all over the world. The food was excellent and the naturalists were brilliant, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic communicators. The programme of walking tours and snorkelling was very well organised and gave us an amazing insight into the widlife. I would definitely recommend cruising for 7 days as we saw 10 different islands and got an excellent overview. - BP (August 2010)
Everything about Isabela was superb and was the highlight of the hoilday. The arrangements made for Agents meeting us, looking after us, seeing that we were extremely well looked after and cared for in such a wonderful attentive manner, was very gratifying. - AP (November 2005)
