The Galápagos need little fanfare. Darwin brought this astonishing place to public attention more than 170 years ago, and the excitement surrounding it is still palpable. Imagine exploring South America's remote archipelago with your closest friends and family: meandering the isles aboard a private luxury yacht, hiking alongside an expert naturalist who points out blue-footed boobies and giant tortoises, and swimming beside bottle-nosed dolphins in a crystal-clear sea. GeoEx's specialist line up the right ship and crew, and can tie in explorations on mainland Ecuador, Peru, and beyond.
