Don't miss this.
The Galapagos Islands of Charles Darwin fame are to me the finest multi-generation destination in the world and should be atop anyone's bucket list.
AdventureSmith Explorations, http://www.adventuresmithexplorations.com/ announces a two-for-one special (cruise rate only in shared cabin) for four late summer / early fall departures in the Galapagos on the classic motor yacht Galapagos Evolution.
The Aug. 25-Sept. 4, Sept. 8-18, Sept. 15-25 and Sept. 22-Oct.1 packages which begin and end in colonial Quito, Ecuador, include an 8 day / 7 night Galapagos cruise, pre and post cruise Quito hotel accommodations, airport/hotel transfers, round trip flights from mainland Ecuador to the Galapagos Islands and a half day tour of the Quito's old town, a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site.
Departures (guaranteed when 16 guests have signed up for the program) start at $5,895 for the first traveler with the companion paying only $1,100 for extras (in-country air tickets, transit control card and park entrance fees) exclusive of the cruise rate. See: http://www.adventuresmithexplorations.com/itinerarydetails.php/advid/58
For this same trip, guests may add a complimentary 4 night / 5 day Amazon adventure extension plus free extras valued at $600 per person if they forego the two-for-one offer and pay full price for the cruise. Bookings must be made by July 30.
Offers like this are rare in the Galapagos, especially during the popular months of August and September when temperatures are most pleasant for hiking and wildlife viewing.
Galapagos Evolution is designed to give travelers the sensation of stepping back into the Roaring Twenties aboard a cruise ship dedicated to guest luxury and style. It has 14 cabins and two suites for 32 passengers. A crew of 18 plus two naturalist guides and a cruise director accompany each sailing.
