“We booked our honeymoon to the Galapagos with The Latin American Travel Company. From start to finish, they were great. We contacted at least 5 different companies to help us with our trip and chose to book with The Latin American Travel Company because John (our advisor) was the most responsive and all the information he provided was completely transparent. With them, we felt we knew exactly what we were getting.

Even when there was a problem two weeks before our trip (through no fault of LATC – there was a problem with the boat we were booked onto), John sorted it all out within 24 hours. Once in the Galapagos, everything went exactly to plan, we didn’t have to worry about a thing and we had the trip of a lifetime!”
