I visited the Galapagos islands with my best friend and thanks to EQ touring advise we took the Queen Beatriz catamaran. Our cruise was perfect, this is a different cruise experience not like the ones I have been used to in big ships. This was a more intimate vacation where only 16 of us could enjoy the privacy of a naturalist guide who by the way is outstanding. The accommodation provided in Quito on the Le Parc hotel was great with beautiful rooms, very comfortable and excellent service. Paul, my guide in Ecuador took me over the city and I learned a lot about Ecuador and their culture. I highly recommend EQ for your travels in Ecuador.
