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.

Family travel on La Pinta

The vessel La Pinta is a top family choice in the Galapagos Islands.

Metropolitan Touring, the mother brand of some of our top medium and large Galapagos vessels, is celebrating their 60th anniversary throughout the month of March 2013. To commemorate this important milestone with its guests, all wetsuit rentals for snorkeling, soft drink beverages, and Internet use will be included in the price of your cruise aboard La Pinta starting March 2013 and forward!

This means that you will be able to enjoy Galapagos’ marvelous underwater worlds in comfort, relax with unlimited non-alcoholic drinks of your choice during downtime (virgin cocktails not included), and remain connected with family and friends all along the way from the convenience of the 2 computer stations in La Pinta’s library and WiFi available in public social areas. Better yet, you won’t have to spend an extra penny for any of these extra services!

Metropolitan Touring has been handling expert trips in South America since 1953, to destinations such as Ecuador, Peru, Argentina, and Chile. At this time, Galapagos tourism was comprised of just a few settlements almost too much a stretch to be called towns. As such, it wasn’t until interest started to rev up in the islands in the 1960’s that the company began offering trips to some of the first curious visitors.

Today, their modern fleet includes the 40-passenger La Pinta and Isabela II, and the 100-passenger Santa Cruz. On land in the Galapagos, Metropolitan Touring is also the proprietor of the celebrated Finch Bay Eco-Hotel, respected for its extensive environmentally friendly and sustainable practices, not to mention the picturesque beach found at its front doors.
