What makes this a favorite of yours?
For my husband’s and my fiftieth anniversary, we invited our family to the Galapagos.
Was an extraordinary trip, arranged by Classic Journeys for families.
In contrast to other tours of the Galapagos, our tour was on land and not on a ship.
Also our excellent guides were people who lived year round on the Galapagos, and were not brought in from other countries.
Because of our guides and our staying on land, we learned a lot about living in the Galapagos.
We found our inns comfortable and they all had a pool.
Our sports activities included swimming, sea kayaking, snorkeling, mountain-biking.
My husband was recovering from an operation and he did very well with the activities.
If he got tired, Classic Journeys would pick him up and bring him back to the inn to rest.
One of the greatest experiences of my life was the New Years celebration with townspeople near our inn.
What is the best way to enjoy this tour?
You can feel free to try many activities.
You also can stop anytime you are tired and Classic Journeys brings you back to the inn.
What does this tour tell us about you?
I am happiest when I am with my family and love our learning together.
