I have just returned home after spending time on the yacht La Pinta and felt compelled to write and compliment the company. Our Galapagos cruise was part of an extended tour beginning in Machu Picchu through Road Scholar. We were aboard the La Pinta from November 6 until November 13, 2015 in Room 308.
Everything about our on board experience was top notch. The service was professional and friendly. The meals prepared by chefs Marco and Darwin were excellent. Our waiter Luis was gracious, courteous and funny. The naturalists Gabriel, Antonio, Salvador and Sylvia were incredibly knowledgeable and also fun to be with and made out outings memorable. The room stewards came like ghosts in the night, we never saw them but our stateroom was always neat and clean with either fresh towels or the bed turned down at night. All of the “Pangeros” were nice but we especially enjoyed Diego and Wilmar.
And lastly, I wish to compliment Xavier, the hotel manager. He was always the epitome of graciousness and professionalism.
The ship was clean and well kept. My compliments to the Captain and his staff.
Be assured that I will recommend this touring company and especially the La Pinta to all of my friends wishing for a top notch tour of a truly unforgettable place, the Galapagos.
Thank you for a truly wonderful experience!
