How on earth are the Galapagos expedition ship classes determined? What's the difference between them in terms of prices, comfort, amenities? All you ever wanted to know, and more.
We've complied a list of "must read" books and articles on the Galapagos Islands.
Galapagos is a photographer's paradise. Amateur or professional, it's worth learning a bit from those who've been there before you. CNH Tours has gathered their advice in a succinct "14-point" list of recommendations.
Puerto Ayora was my hometown for 4 years. When you live in a small town, on a small island, you quickly get to know just about all the things to do on a weekend. In drawing up this list, frankly, I had to stretch to reach 10! Here is a list of what I consider are some of the most interesting, quirky, refreshing things you can do on a lazy day in Puerto Ayora.
Galapagos is a marvel-filled place for children. Imagine a place where the weather is nice, the sea is always at hand, people are “child friendly”, and animals have no fear!

Heather,

We returned home Friday from our trip that was arranged through your company.

Everything was wonderful, an experience of a lifetime. From the time we stepped off the plane in Quito, everything was perfect. Our guide in Quito was excellent, and we enjoyed our hotel and the city tour. From the minute  we arrived in Galápagos and was met by our guide Jimmie, things got even better. We loved the Samba. The crew was amazing, especially Captain Jose. Enough cannot be said about Jimmie, he was just exceptional. Our guide in Puerto Ayora, Sandi was excellent as well, very nice and extremely knowledgeable.

Our travel mates were all very nice people that were similar in age and interests. Friendships were made.

I especially want to thank you for accommodating our last minute request for lodging closer to the airport, on our return to Quito. Staying next to the airport made our early morning departure much easier.
