Overview & Highlights

From colonial Quito, fly on to enjoy a week’s cruise to Ecuador’s Galápagos Islands. You'll explore from a small, eco-friendly and good value upper-mid-range motor cruiser with proven excellent guides.

  • Guided walking tour of Quito
  • 8-day cruise around the Galápagos Islands with guided land excursions

Travel to Quito, the highland capital of Ecuador, and after a couple of days in this exotic capital fly on to embark on a leisurely cruise. You’ll sail in a  small motor yacht, MV Letty. She offers explorations of the Galápagos Islands for those who prefer to discover the islands from a small vessel rather than a large cruiser, but without sacrificing comfort or excellence.

On board this swell appointed you'll have a proper nautical experience around the Galápagos Islands to see the greatest wildlife show on Earth. It was on a similar trip 200 years ago that Darwin returned to the archipelago to write the seminal book ‘On The Origin of Species’. Step into his shoes and explore the diversity of land and marine life which inhabit these enchanting islands.
