Natural history is alive in the Galapagos on this 10-day family adventure. Mystical landscapes are explored, unique wildlife is encountered, and a variety of activities allow the family to explore their own piece of the archipelago. This family vacation trip to Galapagos Islands is handcrafted and combines a 6-day Galapagos cruise with four days spent discovering the Andes and Quito. Snorkel with penguins, sunbathe beside sea lions, hike volcanic history, and discover a breathtaking world.
Quito – Arriving in an Ancient City
The old city of Quito leaves history hanging from balconies and courtyards. Located in a compact central area, you'll find the largest collection of Spanish colonial buildings anywhere in South America. Church domes glimmer with their 16th century Moorish roots, historic bishops' palaces have been converted into shopping and dining arcades while pastel-colored streets mingle five centuries of tales. After landing at Quito International, you'll be greeted by your guide and transferred to a hotel in the old city. Check-in and relax. The whole area is very safe and easy to walk as a family.
