Tour Details

WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

Our tour with the Smithsonian to South America [Machu Picchu and Galapagos) was without a doubt one of the most fun, enjoyable, and educational journeys we have taken. Our fellow travelers quickly bonded and we are still in contact with many of them. We look forward to our next adventure with educated and thoughtful people.

- David L.

This was our first time with a tour group. An excellent experience in every way! The tour directors, expert, and guides were incredibly knowledgeable. I'm so glad we chose Smithsonian Journeys!

- Steve and Nancy S.

Price Notes

Prices are per person based on double occupancy in a Casita at the Royal Palm Hotel while in the Galápagos. Upgrade to a Highland Villa at the Royal Palm Hotel: $295 per person ($495 single). Please note: Availability of all room categories is limited.

Please call if your city is not listed. Air inclusive prices include airline taxes, fuel surcharges, and departure fees of $689 (for departures through July 31, 2022) or $789 (for departures as of August 1, 2022), which are subject to change until final payment is made.

This trip involves considerable walking on uneven terrain. Also, there are both wet and dry landings in the Galápagos. You should be in good physical condition to enjoy the tour to the fullest. In addition, Cuzco’s high altitude (11,150 feet) could pose problems for travelers with certain health conditions. Please consult your physician if you have concerns.

Prices are based on rates of exchange, airfare & fuel (where applicable), tariffs, taxes, and other costs as of the tour publication date. We reserve the right to correct errors and to increase program prices to cover increased costs, tariffs, and taxes received after prices are published and to reflect currency fluctuations.
