The Galapagos

Travel in the footsteps of Charles Darwin on an island safari 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador. Half of the species on this remote volcanic archipelago are found nowhere else on earth. See giant tortoises, marine iguanas, tropical penguins, boobies, and albatross. Exploring the Galapagos Islands you'll feel like you're in movie, swimming with sea lions and dolphins.

Rave Reviews

The trip last May to Peru and Ecuador was one of the best vacation experiences I have ever had. The food was excellent and the other 7 couples on the tour were super. Machu Picchu, Lima, Quito, Lake Titicaca, and the Galapagos Islands were all fun to visit. I will be touring with Friendly Planet again this May to Japan.

Our family just returned from our first Friendly Planet trip. We went to the Galapagos Islands. The arrangements went so smoothly. All the hotels were even nicer than we had anticipated and the guides were wonderful. There was not one hitch or issue. We can't recommend Friendly Planet highly enough. We had one glitch when the airline that provided transportation between the US and Ecuador stopped flying certain routes but Friendly Planet worked with us to find an alternative route.
