The magic of the Galapagos comes alive on this 9-day tour, featuring a 4-night cruise in the Galapagos Islands along with three nights in Ecuador's capital of Quito. While in Quito, explore the city including a visit to the "Middle of the World". A highlight is a day spent outside of Quito at the famous indigenous market in Otavalo. Then, fly to the Galapagos Islands, where you spend 4 nights on the small yacht, Coral I or Coral II. With a capacity of either 36 or 20 passengers (depending on the ship), these twin yachts sail in tandem through the Galapagos. You can easily modify this trip to a 7-night cruise or a 3-night cruise.
