Generally, travelers have questions about which boat is right for them, the differences between first class and luxury class vessels, the best islands to visit, and how long a cruise should be. We are here to answer those questions in an unbiased, honest fashion. We are very careful to create itineraries suited to our travelers’ interests, and our specialists take pride in putting together itineraries that go above and beyond the ordinary.
We also take our environmental responsibility in the Galapagos seriously. The founder of Vaya Adventures is President of the International Galapagos Tour Operators Association, an organization that works to promote truly sustainable tourism in the Galapagos. We believe in small scale, limited tourism in the Galapagos as the only way to protect the islands long term. We do not promote hotel-based tours because we believe it is a step in the wrong direction for tourism in the Galapagos.
Beyond the Galapagos, the mainland of Ecuador is an exceptional and beautifully diverse destination, and we can put together land programs of any length that you might be interested in or have the time for. Options include the Amazon rainforest (a 3 night extension that adds a unique element to the trip), stays at historic haciendas in the Andes, unique cultural excursions in Quito and beyond, and many options for day treks and active exploration.
If you have the time and it works in your budget, one thing you might consider is combining the Galapagos with a trip to Peru and Machu Picchu, one of our most popular trips. We are happy to discuss the details with you and help you figure out how you can get the most out of your time and budget. Please contact us with any questions or to discuss your plans.
