Quito is a cultured city with a wonderous Old Town, a dynamic nightlife and atmospheric streets showcasing Ecuadorian life in all its splendour.
The eastern-most island in the Galapagos, a variety of seabirds nest on Isla San Cristobal, including blue-footed boobies, red-footed boobies and frigates.
A highlight of any Galapagos cruise, Isla Floreana is rich in natural wonders and wildlife, including seabirds such as boobies, pelicans and frigates. Discover the quirky maritime history of Post Office Bay. The largest island in the archipelago, Isla Isabela was formed by five giant volcanic craters, all of which are still considered active.
Isla Santa Cruz is home to the Charles Darwin Research Station The station's visitor centre and museum are essential stops for anyone interested in the archipelago's natural and human history, and keen to learn more about conservation efforts to preserve the unique ecosystems of the Galapagos. It also offers visitors their best chance for close-up encounters with giant tortoises.
Stretched out along a central Andean valley under the gaze of Volcan Pichincha, Quito is one of the most attractive cities in South America.

The landscape, the wildlife, the hotels, the food were amazing! However I felt the quality of both tour guides (Quito and the actual Galapagos) could have been much better and that would have helped to enhanced the experience of the whole tour.
