Cruising is one of the best ways to get to know your next vacation destination - but the best way to cruise? Consider booking a private yacht charter tour! These tours promise the most customized experiences and itineraries hand-crafted to your group's desires. Enjoy the intimacy aboard a yacht reserved exclusively for you and your selected party. These are perfect for big family reunions, unique getaways with friends, or even business retreats. Private charters can host as few as four people and sometimes up to more than 40. With the growth of tourism in Europe, exclusive canal and river access by luxury barges carrying fewer than 12 passengers has become a luxury. The enchanting Galapagos Islands, historic and beautiful Europe, the sun-kissed Mediterranean - let your imagination run wild, and then contact us so we can make your dreams come true!

Galapagos Private Yacht Charter - Travel Guide

What Is the Price of a Galapagos Private Yacht Charter Cruise?

Our Galapagos Crewed Private Yacht Charters  start from about USD $50,000 for a 5-day cruise.

The boat's type and cruise length are important. Costs increase approximately proportionally to the number of days. However, most travelers discover:
  • A 4-day trip is too short because the first and last days are spent flying from Ecuador's mainland, leaving only two days on the islands.
  • Some travelers will be satisfied with a 5-day cruise (with three full days on the islands).
  • An 8-day cruise balances time on the islands with cost.
  • For those with enough time and money, the 15-day cruises offer comprehensive island circumnavigations.

European Private Barge Charter - Travel Guide

What is Barge Cruising? 

As Europe's tourism industry has grown, the owners of old cargo boats have taken the time to transform their vessels into now-luxurious hosts of your voyage, offering you exclusive access to canals and rivers all from aboard a genuinely intimate barge, frequently with fewer than 12 passengers.
