The tour to Galapagos stared off with a 4 night stay in Quito, the hotel was changed at the last minute as Bruno Mars had taken over the entire hotel we were due to stay in and they had re-booked us into another, the hotel was excellent and with upgraded rooms we were all soon settled in.
During the 4 days we had in Quito we toured the city, the equator and drove out of the mountains to see Bird wildlife and much more.
The next part of the tour was an 8 Day Galapagos Cruise, the 5* cruise was excellent, travelling around the islands we saw so much, from Giant Tortoises to all kinds of other reptiles and sea animals. The cruise was wonderful, with a maximum of 16 passengers on board so it really was like one big group of friends, so much so, we have stayed in touch with each other.
If you fancy a tour in South America, then a tour to Ecuador and the Galapagos is highly recommended.
