Design Your Trip
We personally present the Galápagos Islands to our guests in customized, private Galápagos island tours. For our guests that means a flexibility of schedule (pick your dates and length of stay), access to opportunities very few visitors receive, small plane flights between islands, chartered boats, personal Galapagos National Park guides with local knowledge of where and when to be to experience the most intimate encounters with wildlife.
Adventure with Purpose
On every leg of your journey, we work closely with Galapagueños while fulfilling our responsibility to the fragile ecosystem, and always with an eye towards giving back. Whether you’re visiting solo, with a partner, or in a group (we are an LGBTQ-friendly destination!), we work with you and empower you to hike, dive, shop, wander, explore and enjoy the Galápagos on an expertly tailored adventure that leaves a lifelong impression for everyone. You can take peace of mind knowing that our environmentally responsible tours support wildlife conservation, biodiversity, and economic wellbeing for local Galápagos communities.
Dive into Fun
The Galápagos is an enchanting experience that captivates visitors from all walks of life. Famous for the amazing array of endemic species and ecosystems not found anywhere else in the world, you may encounter one of the most unique features of marine life–the Galápagos penguin, a cold-water species living and thriving alongside tropical species!
Traveling with us is more than just about ‘fun in the sun’ — we invite you to snorkel amidst volcanic, rocky reefs, dive with rare sea turtles and sea lions, surf on world-class waves, delight in a bird watching paradise, capture close-up photos of rare wildlife above and below the water, island-hop the remote volcanic archipelago, taste exquisite seafood, ceviche and fruit, wander through exotic markets, peruse mesmerizing art collections, and beyond! And if you have a special request, we do our best to turn your dreams into reality.

Come experience the Galápagos as only the locals can deliver them
“It wasn’t so much that we got to experience the Galápagos as it was that there was a joy among the people and animals there to experience us! I actually began to feel sorry for the groups of tourists we’d glimpse being herded around on buses or boats, isolated from the experience we were having. Your Galápagos touched our hearts.”
– Jenifer Briggs, Hollywood CA
“My time in San Cristobal and in Casa Nuestra was, without doubt, the happiest of my life. The opportunity to spend time on the islands with the people who live there and have made the enchanted islands their home is incredibly powerful. It opens up the Galápagos to you in a way few tourists get to see. The Galápagos are truly magical and spending time on the islands is the only way to really experience that magic.”
– Thea Johnson, New York NY
“We were so happy to have done a land based Galápagos tour because we got a much better “feel” of the islands themselves and all of our hosts were so welcoming. I learned so much about the climate, and geology of the islands that I’m sure I wouldn’t have realized had we stayed on a boat. Plus, we had so much fun–snorkeling, watching birds and trekking around the highlands. It’s quite a place and I’m so happy I came to visit.”
