"The Aida Maria was a beautiful boat and more than met my expectations. The food was outstanding, and I particularly appreciated the efforts the staff made to accommodate my vegetarian diet, especially since I was the only vegetarian passenger. Ivan was an excellent naturalist guide.  I particularly appreciated how he gave us lots of time just to sit and watch the Galapagos animals. I never felt we had a tight agenda.  My mother and I had a fabulous time on our trip, thank you.  It really couldn't have been better." - Caitlin Van Dusen, USA
