"Excellent in Every Way"
"Every day on the National Geographic ship was memorable. With the zodiacs, we could approach wildlife within a few feet and observe their behavior unhurried. The naturalists taught us so much about the grizzlies, marine mammals and birds. The service of the staff was excellent in every way. We've traveled extensively and find that the small ship cruises are perfect. They afford more comfort in getting to the next destination and you only have to pack and unpack your luggage once. It was great working with ExpeditionTrips to plan our trip. They were always helpful and available. Thank you!"

Galapagos – Perfect Every Time!
Ecuador’s “enchanted isles” are a once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experience found nowhere else on earth. Imagine snorkeling with inquisitive sea lions or swimming alongside giant sea turtles. Bask on the sun-warmed rocks, keeping company with dozens of marine iguanas (a 10-million-year-old species!). Meet the iconic giant land tortoises (called “galapago” in Spanish and the islands’ namesake), and photograph the only penguin species found north of the Equator. View All Galapagos Adventures
