How to find the perfect match for a cruise itinerary in the Galapagos Islands for your client

August 17, 2021


In order to help you find the perfect cruise itinerary match in Ecuador for your client, we called on our Local Expert members who know all the best local routes by heart.

Here’s what Daniela Bustamente of Metropolitan Touring had to say:

“When planning a vacation for a unique, breathtaking destination like the Galapagos Islands, the first thing we need to ask ourselves is: what should my client definitely not miss out on? This helps us understand the appeal and magic of this beautiful destination. The ultimate luxury on the Galapagos Islands is the way people are able to interact with the National Park, its endemic species and impressive landscapes.


The Galapagos Islands are one of the most critical biodiverse hotspots in the world and they happen to have some of the highest levels of endemism, too. Consequently, it’s no surprise that many come to the enchanted isles to experience wildlife that they simply can’t see anywhere else on the planet! What are your clients interested in? Based on this notion, you’ll be able to choose an itinerary that leads them to the majestic waved albatross or to an island that’s home to Nazca, red and blue-footed boobies, or to the wonderful and lush highlands, jam-packed with Giant Galapagos Tortoises!


The landscapes that guests will get to experience on each itinerary are so varied and diverse that you can encounter red-sand beaches, dramatic cliffs, volcanic terrains, lush highlands and dry Palo Santo forests, all in just one trip! Our fleet offers unique connections to these incredible scenarios and their inhabitants via multi-guided expeditions with Park-certified bilingual guides in small groups for a more personalized experience at exclusive visitor sites. Plus, we offer our guests every resource they need to enjoy all the park-approved aquatic activities, including snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding, coastal exploration aboard inflatable dinghies and a fantastic glass-bottom boat to explore the marine landscapes.”

Ivonne Zumarraga of Golden Galapagos Cruises gave us a complementary angle of the experiences that can be offered:

“As one of the world’s most fascinating and coveted destinations, it should come as no surprise that there are a myriad of ships, cruises and options to choose from when visiting the Galapagos Islands. At Golden Galapagos Cruises, we have totally reinvented luxury in the Galapagos archipelago. Our signature Golden Touch starts with our state-of-the-art catamarans, which have large, lush social areas and spacious, modern cabins, along with sweeping floor-to-ceiling views of the islands in every direction. This extends to our premium service, where each guest and potential visitor is attended to by exceptionally warm, knowledgeable and experienced personnel who customize our guests’ trips down to their menu preferences, the flora and fauna species that they are interested in seeing and the activities they love. This reinvention of luxury means that our guests enjoy a truly unforgettable experience in the Galapagos, making it the trip of a lifetime!
