Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

  1. Day 1
    Day 1 - Welcome to Ecuador
    Upon arrival at the airport, you’ll be met and escorted to Casa Gangotena, General Tours luxury boutique hotel in the historic heart of Quito.
  2. Day 2
    Day 2 - Discover Quito
    In the engaging company of General Tours expert resident guide, your exploration of this World Heritage city begins in the historic heart of town, home to important Colonial-era landmarks like the Cathedral and Presidential Palace. At the Church and Convent of San Francisco, you’ll discover a splendid 16th-century landmark that blends spectacular Baroque elements with Moorish architectural style.
     
    Then delight in a guided stroll through La Ronda, a charming historic district filled with shops, studios and galleries. Spend time with some of these resident artisans including the owner of a hat shop who learned her millinery skills from her father; for 60 years, the family has been producing some of Quito’s finest hats! For lunch, we’ll take you to a restaurant set in a handsome Colonial house. Join the chef for a lively talk and cooking demonstration, followed by a congenial lunch of traditional Ecuadorian dishes.  Meals B+L
  3. Day 3
    Day 3 - To the Galapagos Islands
    You’ll be escorted to the airport this morning for your included flight to Baltra Island in the center of the archipelago. On arrival, you’ll be met and escorted to the pier to board General Tours intimate Galapagos cruiser, La Pinta. You’ll have time to settle in to your Upper Deck outside stateroom before a welcome briefing and safety drill. Sit down to lunch with your fellow passengers as General Tours chart a course for South Plaza Island, the site of your first naturalist-guided shore expedition. From the white sand beach, edged with black lava formations, you can see groves of prickly-pear cactus and a vast expanse of sesuvium, an unusual succulent that changes from bright green to red, orange and purple depending upon the season. This small island is home to colonies of sea lions, small yellow-grey land iguanas, and marine iguanas. Red-billed tropicbirds and swallow-tailed gulls are just some of the many birds that can be seen nesting along the rocky shoreline. After dinner, an evening briefing with General Tours expert shipboard naturalists offers an entertaining and informative look at the adventures to come.  Meals B+L+D
  4. Day 4
    Day 4 - Santa Fe Island + San Cristobal Island
    After breakfast, General Tours panga boats will bring you from La Pinta to an idyllic white sand beach on the northeast coast of Santa Fe Island. The beach is inhabited by a large number of sea lions that can sometimes be seen surfing in the waves just off shore – it’s an exciting sight to behold! With General Tours sharp-eyed naturalist, this morning’s walk also offers a chance to see Galapagos hawks, Santa Fe land iguanas (unique to this island), and the impressive Santa Fe Opuntia cactus. After the walk, you can swim and snorkel in the bay or ride in General Tours glass-bottom boat.

    After lunch, you’ll step off in the town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno for an excursion to the Cerro Colorado Tortoise Reserve. The visitor center here is a great place to learn about the San Cristobal tortoises and their relationship to the various tortoise species found on other Galapagos islands. Exploring the reserve along a network of trails allows you to observe these remarkable giant tortoises as well as other endemic species including Chatham mockingbirds, flycatchers, yellow warblers and a variety of finches.  Meals B+L+D
  5. Day 5
    Day 5 - Morning + Afternoon Landings on San Cristobal Island
    Today finds you exploring San Cristobal Island at the far eastern edge of the archipelago. In the morning, you’ll join General Tours naturalists to land on the small beach at Punta Pitt, home to a raucous bachelor colony of sea lions. The trail that ascends from the beach offers great views and the only place in the archipelago where all three varieties of boobies (red-footed, blue-footed and Nazca) can be found nesting together! This landing site also offers another chance to observe two species of frigatebirds, swallow-tailed gulls and storm petrels. The hardy vegetation that thrives in this harsh volcanic landscape offers insight into the unique fauna of the archipelago and includes saltbush, spiny shrubs, Palo Santo trees and a variety of small cacti. Conditions permitting, you can end your morning ashore with some swimming or snorkeling from the beach.

    In the afternoon, you’ll explore by panga boat along the rugged, tuff-cone shoreline of Cerro Brujo, one of the first places in the Galapagos visited by Charles Darwin. You’ll go ashore on an expansive white coral-sand beach that’s great for swimming and snorkeling. Narrated exploration with General Tours expert naturalist reveals a diversity of coastal and migratory birds including pelicans, blue-footed boobies and swallow-tail gulls as well as sea lions and marine iguanas.  Meals B+L+D
  6. Day 6
    Day 6 - Punta Suárez + Gardner Bay
    Your first shore expedition on Española Island is at Punta Suárez, hailed as one of the best landing sites in the Galapagos and noted for its amazing variety and abundance of wildlife. At the rocky landing site, you’ll likely be greeted by groups of resting sea lions; the young ones are often nearby cavorting in the shallow waters offshore. Unusual, vividly colored red and green marine iguanas are also a common sight when you first step ashore. As you venture inland with General Tours knowledgeable naturalist, you’ll see and learn about many other creatures including Galapagos doves, Española mockingbirds, three species of Darwin’s finches and thriving colonies of blue-footed and Nazca boobies. Near the end of the trail, a lava fissure has created a blowhole where water can be sprayed up to 100 feet into the air during high tide. From April to December, visitors can walk along the edge of a waved albatross breeding colony. With up to 30,000 birds in residence during these months, this represents nearly the entire world population of these fascinating birds that mate for life and produce just a single egg each year.

    Following lunch onboard, you’ll return to Española Island for a relaxing afternoon at Gardner Bay. Extending for almost one mile, this expansive white coral-sand beach is one of the loveliest in the Galapagos Islands. It’s a great place to swim or take advantage of General Tours complimentary snorkeling gear, kayak and glass-bottom boat. From November to March, green sea turtles can often be seen in the waters of Gardner Bay. If you stay ashore to explore along the beach, you’re likely to encounter Darwin finches, resting sea lions and Española mockingbirds.  Meals B+L+D
  7. Day 7
    Day 7 - Charles Darwin Research Station + Back to the Mainland
    After breakfast, you’ll disembark on Santa Cruz Island to visit the esteemed Charles Darwin Research Station. Here you’ll see giant Galapagos tortoises and learn about the center’s ongoing conservation work to ensure the survival of this remarkable creature as well as the overall health of the archipelago’s fragile environments. Then travel via motorcoach and ferry across the channel to nearby Baltra Island for your included flight back to the South American mainland.
