"My week in the Galapagos was the highlight of my trip to Ecuador. It was filled with memorable moments on land and in the water. I was so glad I chose the land based tour as I particularly enjoyed wandering around Puerto Ayora and Isabela in the evenings".

This "Galapagos in a Nutshell" package gives you a good overview of much that the islands have to offer. During your 5 busy days you will have the opportunity to explore above and below the water and come up close and personal with many of the endemic species of the the Galapagos Archipelago.
