Your mandatory Galapagos National Park entrance fee is included in your itinerary pricing.

Please note: all Galapagos excursions are to be referenced as a guideline only -  the route and program are subject to change according to National Park policies and regulations, weather conditions, seasonal changes, safety precautions and estimated wildlife encounters, etc.

Upon arrival to Baltra, a group transfer awaits, for your transportation to the ship.

Welcome aboard!

Take some time to get settled in to your stateroom, and to explore the ship. Your expedition begins shortly.

Dry landing. A 45-minute bus ride will take you to the Santa Cruz highlands, located to the northwest of Puerto Ayora, where you'll find a natural reserve with giant tortoises. These enormous and slow-moving reptiles are responsible for the island’s name and therefore approaching them in their humid and forested abode is always an inspiring adventure. They can weigh between 250 and 300 kg and can live up to 150 - 200 years. Additionally, travelers can walk inside surprising lava tubes; you also visit Pit Craters created from the collapse of surface materials into chamber fissures underground. It’s a great place to spot Vermilion Flycatcher as you walk inside an endemic Scalesia forest.

Accommodation: M/V Galapagos Legend (3N)

The M/V Galapagos Legend is a 100-passenger luxury class yacht, specifically built for expedition cruises of the Galapagos.  Galapagos Legend has all-new passenger accommodations with 1800 square meters of social areas, built with marine certified materials qualifying with Safety of Life at Sea specifications. The 41 cabins are structured in suite style and superior room fashion, each with a window at the bedside to soak in the surrounding water and pieces of land.  Dining can take place outdoors under the stars, while feasting on a medley of Ecuadorian and international methods and spices.  Later, spend the evening watching live performances of native folk dancing, or perhaps spend some private time in the library.

Day 3: Santiago Island - Galapagos Cruise

Wet landing on a beach of black volcanic sand, visited by Darwin in 1835. The first section of the trail is comprised of volcanic ash (eroded tuff) and the other half of partially uneven terrain is comprised of volcanic basaltic rock lounging the shoreline. The unique, truly striking layered terrain of Santiago’s shores is home to a variety of resident and migrant birds, including the bizarre Yellow-crowned Night Heron and astounding array of marine wildlife including lobster, starfish and marine iguanas grazing on algae beds alongside Sally Lightfoot crabs. Colonies of endemic fur seals swimming in cool water pools formed by volcanic rocks are also a highlight.

Dry or wet landing in the afternoon. You'll discover a fascinating moonscape formed by different volcanic parasitic cones — lava bombs, spatter, cinder cones — as you hike to the summit for impressive views of the surrounding islands, including the eroded tuff cone Pinnacle Rock. You also encounter marine iguanas, lava lizards and blue-footed boobies. Beach time is a great opportunity to snorkel and see (perhaps swim with) Galapagos Penguins, sea turtles and White - tipped Reef Sharks among a great variety of colorful fish. For many visitor , this may turn out to be the best of snorkeling experiences; the water here is generally clear, without too much surf and full of marine life. Due to its geographical location, the lack of vegetation is immediately noticeable. Pioneer plants are observed, so called because they are the first to establish roots on new ground.  Behind the beach you'll see dunes covered by mangroves.

Day 4: Santa Cruz Island - Galapagos Cruise

Dry landing. You walk by a brackish lagoon where feeding flamingoes can be occasionally found. The trail leads across typical dry zone vegetation up to Dragon Hill, an important nesting ground for endemic land iguanas, offering lovely views of the anchorage and neighboring islands. The forest is home to mockingbirds, Darwin’s finches, Yellow Warblers and Galapagos Doves.

Dry landing in the afternoon. This is perhaps one of the busiest tourist destinations on the archipelago. Off of Baltra Island (where the airport is located) and not far from Santa Cruz, North Seymour is the most accessible for day trips out of Santa Cruz’s main port, Puerto Ayora. An approximately two hour walk amidst large nesting colonies of blue-footed boobies, magnificent and great frigatebirds, and swallow-tailed gulls for an in depth encounter with sea bird breeding cycles and as well as sea lions. You will also encounter sea lions, land iguanas, and on a lucky day, you might even come across a Galapagos Snake.

Day 5: Santa Cruz Island - Baltra Island - Galapagos - Guayaquil - Lima

This morning's wet landing is on the north side of Santa Cruz; behind the beach lie two small flamingo ponds with iguanas, coastal birds, Darwin finches, mockingbirds, and gulls, as well as interesting native and endemic vegetation, red and black mangroves, salt bushes, and much more. This beach is one of the main nesting sites of sea turtles in the Galapagos. A female can lay eggs 3 or 4 times with an average of 70 eggs each, but then spend 3 or 5 years without breeding. At this paradisiacal site we will also find the remains of barges that sank long ago, once property of the United States Navy when they operated an airbase on Baltra Island during World War II. That is why the beach is called “Bachas” because the word “barges” in English was hard to pronounce for the local people.

This morning you'll disembark from your ship and bid farewell to the crew.

A coach awaits to transfer you to the airport for your outbound flight.

Fly direct from Galapagos to Guayaquil. The flight duration is approximately 2 hours.
Please note that flight rates are subject to change without prior notice.

Fly from Guyaquil to Lima. Flight duration is approximately 2 hours. Separate purchase.

For your added comfort, you will have an English-speaking local representative waiting for you outside of customs with a sign with your name on it.  Your representative will help you to co-ordinate meeting up with your private driver and accompany you to your accommodation.

  • Karen S. — August 10, 2016 — South America

    Everyone we dealt with was AMAZING - knowledgeable, helpful, willing to go the extra mile. I actually already have recommended Kensington Tours to my friends and family.

  • Dennis J. — July 20, 2016 — South America

    We did not worry about a thing during our trip. All the people associated with Kensington Tours were awesome. Very detail focused with times and meeting places. Awesome group

  • Wendy M. — July 20, 2016 — South America

    Our vacation was "perfection from start to end". What a great feeling it was to know someone was at each airport/train waiting for us, driving us to the hotels, checked us into our hotels and didn't just drop us off, discussed each days itinerary and pick up times - called us in our room to verify times. When they say they will be there at 9:20, rest assured they will be there exactly at that time. The drivers, tour guides and representatives Bruno, Mel, Thomas, Betty, Paul, Willy & Hilda spoke excellent English, knew their history of Peru extremely well. We asked all kinds of questions and they were able to answer every question as well as taught us how to say thank you in Quechua and Aymara. The hotels were outstanding and exceptional! If I over looked anyone or any other detail - you all were outstanding including Kelly and Maria who put this trip together bending over backwards to make every detail perfect. You have made the perfect vacation even more perfect!!! I will add my review to TripAdvisor. Thank you so so much.

  • Karen G. — July 15, 2016 — South America

    We had an excellent vacation. We loved Peru. The logistics and quality of guides were very good. In particular, the tour guides at Machu Picchu, the Amazon and Lima historical old town were excellent.

  • Anne C. — June 30, 2016 — South America

    The local guides were great, in Cusco, Machu Picchu and Lima. I really enjoyed having the same guide, driver and car for all activities in the Sacred Valley, Cusco. It really helped to make us feel comfortable. The accommodations were great, especially at Sol y Luna lodge. Everyone was very willing to help make the trip what we wanted and accommodate our needs. The timing of tours worked out really well and think the trip was planned according to our needs, including things we may not have even been aware of.

  • Bruce C. — June 15, 2016 — South America

    Our trip to Machu Picchu was to celebrate our 15 year anniversary, it was amazing!!!! We are frequent travelers and don't normally use a travel company but did for this trip, it was fantastic. Everything was cared for, the tour guides were very knowledgeable and passionate about their culture. They truly took the effort out of this trip for us. We will definitely use Kensington again.

  • Charles B. — May 25, 2016 — South America

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Peru. The Kensington representatives took all of the stress out of the logistics and were very welcoming and knowledgeable.

  • Gerri G. — May 18, 2016 — South America

    Excellent service from our Kensington staff contact, and terrific guides and hotels. All transfers at airports were seamless.

  • Mauricio G. — May 18, 2016 — South America

    We were absolutely wowed and impressed by the level of detail in both the planning and accommodation of our needs. This trip was planned on a very short notice so we did not have high expectations. However, every moment of our trip from airport transfers, guides, sights to the culture of Peru were delivered leaving memories beyond our expectation. Thanks again to Nella and all guides in Peru.

  • William M. — May 18, 2016 — South America

    All the guides were extremely helpful and courteous.
