  • Important Remarks:
  • Hotel Selection:
  • The hotel selection depends on the category of hotel that you choose (Tour Options). Once you choose the hotel class of preference, we will specify to you which hotels (belonging to the class chosen) are available for the dates of your trip. Hotels are categorized in the following classes: Economic Class, Tourist Class, Tourist Superior Class and First Class. All the hotels have been carefully chosen by us after close inspection.
  • Restaurants in Galapagos
  • This also depends on the chosen hotel class, as not all hotels have restaurant services. Meals are served in the “meal of the day” style; however, if you choose First Class hotels you will have more variety and gourmet-style meals. By patronizing local restaurants we contribute to the local economy and support sustainable tourism.
  • Guides in Galapagos
  • Guides will accompany you throughout all excursions and visits. They will not go with you on the speedboats between islands either. Guides are certified by the Galapagos National Park - if you feel that their guidance does not meet your expectations, feel free to leave a complaint at the National Park Direction to help improve the quality of service in the islands.
  • Public Speedboats
  • It is recommended that you take a seasickness pill if you are sensitive to sea-sickness before each ride between islands. It is also recommended that you carry on small plastic bags in case of seasickness.
  • Not recommended for travellers with back problems
  • Not recommended for pregnant travellers

Response from NikolayMancheno, Gerente at 8-Day Tour of Galapagos and Quito Including Hotels and Transfers
Responded 7 May 2019
Dear Ashish, Thank you so much for having taking precious time to post your comments about your trip to Galapagos with us!! María told us about the great tailor-made itinerary proposed. We were delighted to offer our help being arranging 9 amazing days in Ecuador + Galapagos. We are conscious that, when an itinerary is customized, we have to put an extra effort so that all activities are planned like military timings, as those are managed differently than our regular plans. We appreciate you recommend us to your friends and all people in general. It's really recomforting reading this and we intend to keep on offering services with such great feedback from your side. Warmest Wishes NATURE GALAPAGOS & ECUADOR TEAM
