Vacation Planning Tips
A trip to the Galapagos islands is never going to be particularly cheap – but when you are surrounded by the unique beauty and wildlife of this very special place, you'll see why so many people are willing to spend a little extra for the experience.
There are many important reasons for these costs, not least the fact that an extraordinary amount of care must be taken by tour organisers and local authorities to ensure that the islands remain in a state of ecological balance and harmony. Indeed, 650 dollars of the cost of your trip covers only the airfare to and from the island, with one hundred of those dollars being given to the islands' conservation team to ensure that future generations can enjoy the islands in all their unspoilt and unique beauty.
We would highly recommend that to make the most out of your Galapagos tour, you must carefully research what you most would like to do and see on the islands, and prepare yourself with as much knowledge as possible.
Of course, there are so many things to see and do there, and so much land to cover that you may find you need help keeping your travel itinerary within budget, and luckily our expert advisers are always reachable to ensure that you can do just that.
