DAY 1 - Guayaquil to Isabela Island via Santa Cruz
Guayaquil
We’ve arrived in Ecuador’s largest city and are ready and raring to conquer it all. Getting out of here pretty early we’ll take to the skies, bound for the glorious Galapagos Islands. Excited much? You should be. On arrival we’ll appease our rumbling stomachs with some munch.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Included Flight to Baltra
Boat Ride to Isabela Island
See Galapagos famous giant tortoises
Visit the lava tunnels
Santa Cruz Island
Giant tortoises roaming their natural surroundings and incredible old lava tunnels will welcome us onto the island of Santa Cruz. After lunch, we’ll take to the ocean and make tracks to our home for the night – the impossibly glorious Isabela Island, where we’ll sleep amidst the spellbinding beauty of the Galapagos National Park.
Isabela Island
The inspiration behind Charles Darwin’s ‘Origin of Species’, Isabela Island is home to wildlife you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Picture the scene – sandy streets, palm trees, crystal waters and seal pups playing – can it really get any more perfect? Soak it all in, as it’s home for the next little while.
DAY 2 - Isabela Island
Isabela Island
Well good morning paradise. The ocean is calling, and who are we to resist her? Our wildlife kayaking adventure will see us taking to the seas with beady eyes on the lookout for green sea turtles.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Snorkelling experience
Wildlife kayaking adventure
DAY 3 - Isabela Island to Santa Cruz Island
Isabela Island
We’ll wake up hungry for the day this morning (that’s what island life does to you), and for good reason – Santa Cruz is on the horizon.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Tortuga Bay and take a hike to a secluded beach
Santa Cruz Island
After settling in to the Santa Cruz way of life, we’ll stroll down to the beach and the cosy Tortuga Bay. Wildlife fanatics will be in their element – the island is known for sharks, rays, turtles, great blue herons, and even blue footed boobies. Spend your time sunbaking next to a marine iguana, or roam the streets stopping off in cute cafes for fresh juice pit stops.
DAY 4 - Santa Cruz to San Cristobal Island
Santa Cruz Island
Our stint on Santa Cruz wraps up this morning with a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station where one of the island's most famous residents once lived, Lonesome George, the now deceased 100-year old tortoise. The Research Station is something of a mini miracle in action, where countless species of tortoise and land iguanas have been brought back from the brink of extinction.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Charles Darwin Research Station
See some Famous Sea Lions
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Island Biking Adventure
US$40.00
Paddleboarding
San Cristobal Island
Back on our boat we’ll set sail for San Cristobal, keeping our eyes peeled for cute bathing sea lions (we won’t have to look too hard – they’re literally everywhere). Four extinct volcanoes sit across the island creating scenic highlands that are best experienced by bike – mainly cruising downhill, you'll be happy to know. The tiny town of El Progreso will add a splash of colour to our journey, and we’ll also cross five different vegetation zones before arriving at our seaside destination – La Loberia beach.
DAY 5 - San Cristobal Island
San Cristobal Island
It’s our last day soaking up the natural beauty of the Galapagos, and what a day we’ve got planned. Bird-watching will kick us off, followed by a cruise to the 143-metre Kicker Rock – a natural phenomenon that protrudes from the ocean and is one of the greatest icons of the area. Our Local Guide will give us the low-down on the wildlife – both above and below the water – that surrounds the rock, then we’ll jump in and explore for ourselves. Keep a look out for chocolate chip starfish and a Galapagos Shark or two, but remember the golden rule – keep those toes off the coral, as you can do serious damage to the delicate eco-system. Back on board, we’ll make tracks for Puerto Grande beach. Here, we’ll eat lunch on board and enjoy a final afternoon of Galapagos fun, before rounding off the day with a feat to end all feasts. WHAT A DAY.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Explore Kicker Rock
Boat cruise and off shore bird spotting experience
Galapagos Meal
Visit a private beach
DAY 6 - San Cristobal to Guayaquil
San Cristobal Island
There’s time to relax this morning & take in the beauty of the island before heading back to the mainland where your trip ends on arrival.  Not done yet?  Why not fly to Peru and join our Andes and Amazon Highlights trip?

While I've generally had positive experiences on Contikis in the past, this trip was not as stellar as I would have hoped due to the tour manager, who was pretty unorganized. Seemed like we were jumping from day to day without a clear idea of what the itinerary would be.

I think the trip cost is fair for what the services that I received. It is affordable for students like myself. I will definitely consider using Contiki for my future trips:)

Great location to travel to. All the animals advertised in the tour were seen right away. I feel I got my money's worth; I enjoyed the marine life and the unique bird and tortoise species. It is also a perfect destination for relaxation.
