Tour Details



This was an excellent adventure for all ages! The amazing sights of the Galápagos combined with excellent facilities, service and superb local guides made for a close to perfect family trip. The camaraderie among passengers and tour staff will result in lasting memories and friendships.

I took this trip with my children and parents. It met everyone’s needs; going fast enough for 9 and 11 year olds, while not too strenuous for the grandparents. The excursions were well thought out and provided much educational information about the animals and geology of the Galápagos. It will be a trip our family will remember forever.

The most enjoyable outdoor adventure we have ever experienced. At every turn there was opportunity to experience nature at its most astounding.
