Why Go With Us
The Galápagos Islands are among the most exhilarating and edifying destinations on the planet, but sorting through the endless travel options is daunting. With more than 25 years’ experience in the archipelago, GeoEx knows just how to get you the most out of your time there.
Top-Notch, Hand-Selected Options
Unlike many companies, which simply funnel their clients into the same ship, GeoEx has curated a medley of excellent options—both at sea and on land—that we mix and match to meet the style and wishes of our individual travelers. Our Galápagos experts have done careful, in-person research to find the best:
- crews, cabins, and deck plans
- guide-to-guest ratios
- island lodgings and staffs
- activity choices
- attention to conservation
“The trip was outstanding, the ship totally wonderful. We had been to Ecuador before but seeing it through the eyes of our grandchildren was magical. It was the best. . . .Everything moved flawlessly where GeoEx was involved. This is why we seek you out for all of our exotic travel. You do such a great job!” –Emily K.
Unparalleled, Real-Time Expertise
To keep on top of the evolving options and regulations in the Galápagos, GeoEx sends staff members to the destination on research trips at least once a year to:
- make sure our boats, guides, and accommodations are up to our—and your—high standards
- investigate new options for overnighting and exploring
- continue our involvement with conservation efforts (for example, partnering with and donating to the Charles Darwin Foundation and the Galápagos Traveler Conservation Fund)
We know the region inside and out, and love sharing our knowledge with GeoEx travelers. Give us a call to ask the smallest details: Should I bring my own wetsuit? What currency is best? Can I eat the salad? What will the water temperature be? You’ll get accurate answers from people who have been there.
“By working with GeoEx instead of planning the trip myself, I saved decades!” –Deb A.

From our first conversation to your return home, GeoEx handles the details, saving you time and missteps.

Adding More of South America, Seamlessly
If you’re inspired to combine the Galápagos with more of South America, just say the word. We’ll talk with you about possibilities on mainland Ecuador, in Peru, in the Amazon, and beyond, sharing our favorite haciendas and hotels, cloud-forest excursions, hikes up snowcapped peaks, and more. Our in-country knowledge and connections allows us to open doors normally closed to travelers.
“It has been a real pleasure to travel with you. GeoEx shows a personal concern for each of their clients. You did an excellent job merging our pre-trips and air flights. This was a dream trip, and with the pre-trip options, it was like three wonderful trips in one!” –Edward D.
