Alan and I had a truly wonderful experience in Ecuador. Santiago and the rest of staff were excellent hosts, as was the La Pinta and its staff. We had an amazing trip.
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!! The trip was outstanding; all the arrangements were perfect – from the time we were met at the airport in Quito – to the time we were returned to the airport in Guayaquil.
Hannah, we are back from our fabulous vacation, and I am so very thankful to you for setting it all up. Please provide me with your supervisor's name and email address so I can give you proper credit! Dilger couple, Custom Galapagos Land Based, March 2012

Grace Yacht

M/Y Grace is a luxury yacht with capacity for 18 guests in nine spacious staterooms, five of which have twin beds and four of which have double beds. Built in 1928 in Southampton, England, the M/Y Grace has been owned by millionaire tycoons and royalty, and even was selected to serve in the British Royal Navy during WWII.  This intimate and luxurious yacht has a stabilizer system for smooth sailing, a main salon with plush sofas and an entertainment system, and a front sun deck with a hot tub and ample space for sunbathing. Delicious, high-quality cuisine can be enjoyed inside or outside. Due to her smaller size, the M/Y Grace is able to visit certain sites in the Galápagos that larger ships are banned from. The M/Y Grace is also ideal for private charters for a special shared adventure with family or close friends.
