Tips To Choose the Best Galapagos Tours
It’s not always the case that “one size fits all” when it comes to cruises in the Galapagos. There are distinct advantages for travellers that choose to explore the natural wonders of the enchanted isles aboard a multiple-guided ship. The rules of the Galapagos National Park specify that ships need to have 1 guide for every 16 guests (or less) aboard.

It means that individuals aboard these vessels have no choice but to explore the archipelago as a single group.
