Eva was absolutely brilliant - we met another couple on our boat who had also booked with Happy Gringo and they said exactly the same thing. Eva responded to emails within hours and answered hundreds of questions promptly and patiently!!! As we're travelling for 10 months we've booked many tours in different countries and Happy Gringo is by far the best tour operator we've used - a fantastic company!" (Deborah Everingham, UK)
Happy Gringo were excellent and exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you for your excellent service. I contacted 8 or 9 tour agencies about Galapagos tours and you were far and away the most helpful and responsive."
