TPG - Galapagos In Darwins Footsteps

Anyone else going on this expedition ? We are so looking forward to it !!

Rgds, Melvyn.

We went in May - you will really enjoy it.  Beware being woken at 0500 on San Cristobel by the sea lions barking

Four things the trip notes don't yet cover well

a) Tipping - is around $80 per person rather than the $50 mentioned

b) Sierra Negre trek  Waterproofs - take both lightweight jacket and trousers in case it rains (we expereinced a lot at times though it did clear for the spectacular iights).  Also strong recommendation to take walking poles

c) for snorkelling - take own mask and snorkel - the boats have flippers so more room in kitbag unless particularly want to take own.  Underwater camera would be good.

d) At Floreana your kitbag stays on the boat so prepare an overnight bag when packing on leaving San Cristobel

In terms of eating on the Sunday after your arrival - avoid Hotel Quito - stuffy, slow and expensive. 

 Trust this helps
