Client comments and reviews

Open QuoteThe cruise on Isabella II was excellent, everything on the boat was perfect. Nice group of people and the guides all very good.Close Quote - DL, November 2011
Open QuoteThe 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.Close Quote - BP, August 2010
