Cruising holidays in Ecuador almost certainly mean a Galapagos boat, one of the best tours in the world.
Galapagos Islands travel offers tame wildlife, volcanic landscapes and a choice of cruise boats, from basic to luxury.
Choose cruises from 4-8 days in length, or longer, and visit as many Galapagos Islands as you can.
For whale watchers, head to the coastal town of Puerto Lopez and enjoy day trips to see whales leaping from the sea.
Don’t forget to read our Galapagos Island Guide, our Galapagos Weather Guide and page about Diving in Galapagos.
Also, check our blogs about avoiding seasickness, a typical day in Galapagos, itinerary advice and cruise vs hotel help.

FANTASTIC! The trip was magical, magnificent and great fun and much of that is credit to you for helping us build such a wonderful holiday.
All of our guides and drivers were excellent but of course some were more exceptional than others. The driver who took us around on our last day in Cusco was better than most guides.
Coral I, Galapagos – On Galapagos we had 2 absolutely brilliant guides.
The boat was excellent and although the itinerary had changed slightly we had a fantastic array of experiences on many different islands. The accommodation was good and we are very pleased we upgraded. Being downstairs helped on those nights that the boat was moving in choppy waters as it only has a 2m draught and so can sway quite heavily.
Food was unbelievably good and plentiful given the limited resources. Extra snacks were provided when we came back from swimming/snorkelling and hot drinks were available 24 hours.
We had a memorable holiday and we thank you for all you did to make it work so well.
In summary, it was terrific and we have already, and will continue to sing the praises of Andean Trails.

We had a great time in Quito and the Galapagos, thanks. Everything went even better than expected – we really liked the friendly hotel, and couldn’t fault anything on the Mary Anne. We also appreciated the unexpected extras – the free transfers to the airport to and from the Galapagos, and payment of the tax. I have already recommended you to a friend!

The Kaieteur falls in Guyana are one of the world’s tallest single-drop waterfalls by volume of water. At 226 metres they are almost 5 times higher than the Niagara falls and have an average flow rate of 663 cubic metres per second. They are located in the Kaieteur National Park which is roughly 241 kms south-west of Georgetown within the Pakaraima Mountain Range. They are also totally off the beaten path and unspoilt. This means that you may be one of only a handful of people visiting when you go – unlike the Iguassu or Niagara Falls. Legend …
