As many before me, I am also planning a trip to Galapagos Islands and would like to do it as economically as possible but still get good value for money! We would be going in October/November which I understand is low season so hopefully will avoid crowds and get somewhat better value.
While surfing I found a travel agency called Galapagos Options that offer an 8-day Island Hopping Tour with airfare from and to Guayaquil included with a pretty low price - does anyone have any experience of such company? The itinerary seems to be land-based but the transfers between the islands would be done with a boat or in some cases a small airplane. It notes that the local guides speak only basic English but as we speak Spanish this would not be a problem. Everything seems a bit too good to be true...
Are there any other companies you would recommend?
Any help would be appreciated!
