THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!! The trip was outstanding; all the arrangements were perfect – from the time we were met at the airport in Quito – to the time we were returned to the airport in Guayaquil.
Alan and I had a truly wonderful experience in Ecuador. Santiago and the rest of staff were excellent hosts, as was the La Pinta and its staff. We had an amazing trip.

Cruise Galapagos on the Isabela II

This is an excellent time for travel to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.

For more authenticity in your travel experience, we heartily recommend combining the top spots of the Galapagos Islands with the highlights of Quito, Ecuador.  Let’s start with the Galapagos cruise:

On board the classic Isabela II yacht, you will have all the amenities of a larger boat such as spacious cabins, an experienced well-trained staff, Wi-Fi internet connection, and access to all snorkel gear and sea kayaks.  The adventure cruise will make several island stops per day, allowing you to get up close and personal with marine iguanas, giant tortoises, blue footed boobies and much more. The Isabela II yacht is an excellent choice for adventure seeking travelers who prefer a comfortable atmosphere. Guests can design full or half- week expeditions, a welcome option for those with time constraints. The Isbaela II focuses on giving travelers an in-depth naturalist experience, providing evening lectures on topics relating to the geology, flora and fauna of the Enchanted Islands, as well as offering one of the most complete cruising itineraries. From July to September, there is a summer special for children under 18. The first child is free, and the second is half off!

After days of adventure on and around the islands, there is no better way to recuperate  and continue your trip than to explore the culture and vibrancy of Quito. Staying at the charming Villa Colonna, a boutique hotel in the colonial center of the city, will allow you to settle into your surroundings rather nicely.  Each one of the six unique guest quarters in this 19th century guesthouse is luxurious, yet comfortable. Whats’s more, they all offer a stunning rooftop terrace overlooking the city. Enjoy a cup of tea or relax reading a book. You can familiarize yourself with Ecuadorian city life and its people at your leisure, or a private tour can be arranged.

Galapagos Excursions offers combination options to make it easier for you to design the trip you’ve been dreaming of.  Experience the wonders of the Galapagos along with the elegant, rich history of Quitos, Ecuader, in this amazing custom travel package!  Contact one of our travel specialists for more details at the Galapagos Excursions Booking page.
