Firstly, the trip definitely exceeded our expectations! We absolutely loved it!! All the crew members were friendly, helpful and courteous at all times. They went out of their way to make our trip very comfortable and pleasant. They were eager to please us. The boat drivers let our kids steer sometimes, the captain was taking our life jackets and hanging them up, the food server would bring us special requests.
Our guides would definitely get top marks in all categories. We loved Solange and Gustavo. They were so knowledgeable about everything. They were very relaxed and happy and put us all in vacation mode. They really set the tone and pace for a real vacation. I couldn’t ask for better. We are now thinking of going on another Ecoventura trip led by Gustavo down the Amazon River.
The food was excellent. We loved every meal. Our server, Diego was pleasant. It was such a joy to have scrumptious meals served to us. We could really enjoy the meal with the family and sit and talk to each other three meals a day for a whole week. We returned to our house and I wanted to make more time for meals. We tend to always be rushed at our house and don’t really sit and enjoy the meal with each other. Maybe I just get too tired from all the prep and clean up though too!
Our tour was very organized. We always knew what we were going to do. We were given lots of time to snorkel and see things and were relaxed about it. They didn’t rush us or fret if we were a few minutes late. When I was snorkeling fairly far from the group, one of the boat drivers brought a kayak to me one day knowing that I wanted to kayak in the afternoon. We were running a little late, but he didn’t rush me and was so friendly about it.
We usually go on about two trips a year. For the first time ever, all three of our children didn’t want to come home at all. They wanted to stay on board the ship with the friendly crew, yummy food and wonderful atmosphere. Thank you so much for giving us memories of a life time!
We learned about the Ecoventura in a travel book and then we looked on line. We have already recommended your yachts to several of our friends! They are so jealous about our trip.
