Additional Info
  • NOTE: If possible, book an early flight of arrival to Baltra Airport in order to follow the order of the displayed itinerary. However, if you must book a late flight (later that 12pm), we can still carry the tour but we might need to modify the order of the activities in the itinerary. In order to make this modification, make sure you also pick a late flight for your return on the last day of the tour (departing later than 12:30pm).
  • Adult pricing applies to all travelers for First Class Hotels
  • Vegetarian option is available, please advise at time of booking if required
  • Passport name, number, expiry and country is required at time of booking for all participants
  • The visit to the navigable island site on days 2, 3, and 4 is subject to availability as regulated by the Galapagos National Park. You will be advised of availability and your trip will be arranged as best as possible. In case none of the sites are available, an alternative itinerary will be used and a discount applied.
  • Itinerary subject to change due to Galapagos National Park dispositions or to circumstances beyond our control, - no refunds will be applicable in these cases
  • NOTE: Please try to book your arrival in the morning (before 11 am) and your departure in the afternoon (12am or after) so that you don’t miss any part of the tour. You can book your flight either through TAME, AEROGAL, LAN, or TAME (recommended).
  • Note: The tour is not private. Accommodations are private, but the guided activities will be shared with other travelers.
  • 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: 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: 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
