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.
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.
Hannah, we are back from our fabulous vacation, and I am so very thankful to you for setting it all up. Please provide me with your supervisor's name and email address so I can give you proper credit! Dilger couple, Custom Galapagos Land Based, March 2012

Combine Modes and Activities When Visiting the Galapagos

Our founding company Latin Excursions and this sister company Galapagos Excursions, are  award winning Travel companies, specialized in high quality travel experiences in Latin America. We have been sending discerning clients to the Galapagos over the last decade. Our most satisfying tour arrangements are the specialized tours we create for groups and families.

We consider the most ideal way to visit the Galapagos is combining both a boat based expedition with a land based one. For some clients, this might mean ending the boat expediton at a hotel or for larger groups we suggest chartering a boat combined with a villa stay on the islands. We have created numerous exclusive products offering this combination and highly suggest it for families and small groups of up to 14 people.  This exclusive way of visiting allows families  and tour groups to explore the islands in a private yacht followed by a stay at the islands finest villa where one can choose to relax or continue with other activities based from the villa such as snorkeling, diving, visiting a local school we support or simply relaxing after an intense boat itinerary.
