There are numerous ways to explore and have fun in Galapagos. With land-based travel, you have greater scheduling options for any activity occurring outside the park boundaries. But if you want to visit any sites within the park limits, it’s important to remember that the National Park Authorities require that you do so accompanied by a licensed Naturalist Guide, which means you will have the greatest flexibility on multi-guided expedition vessels and yachts during your Galapagos tour.
TRAVEL EXPERT TIP: Ask if more than one activity is available at the same time.
Galapagos Tours Tip 2
Will I Have Access to Medical Care on Board?
Lucky for you if you enjoy constant good health, but having an MD Officer (Doctor) can make all the difference on your Galapagos tour, considering that you’re traveling in a remote region. All operators watch out for the safety and security of their guests, and the National Park authority has its own facilities and emergency medical transport available. But some operators take guest safety to another level by investing in a permanent medical presence on board.
