Highlights of a Land-based Galapagos Tour
There's a new kid on the block in the Galapagos tour business - land-based tours! For decades, cruises were mostly the only way to explore these enchanting islands, but over the last few years, the options for land-based tours have exploded - meaning higher quality, more options, and an overall better experience for travelers.
Land-based tours of the Galapagos are great for people who get motion sickness and want to avoid the constant rocking of the smaller cruising yachts.
Also known as island-hopping tours, Galapagos land-based tours are also a great way to save money - even the high end luxury experiences are usually considerably less expensive than a cruise of a comparable length.
Plus, they are completely customizable - do the activities you want to do and leave out the ones that don't interest you. And you'll even have more time to do them or repeat the activities that you like.
If you really want some time on the water, you can even add on a shorter Galapagos cruise as an extension to your land-based tour to get the full Galapagos experience.
