ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • Single travelers have a private room. All rooms have a private bathroom.
  • It is recommended to book flights with an early arrival time to the Galapagos Islands and a late departure time from the Galapagos Islands to make sure you can enjoy all of the activities of the tour. Late arrivals and/or early departures mean you might miss some activities.
  • There are no guides on the transportation by public speedboat between islands.
