Hi, I am Christian Echeverria, but call me (Choko), and, together with my wife, we’ve created this travel blog with the aim of helping all tourists who want to get to know Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.
On my trips to the Galapagos, I experienced the different situations that many travelers go through when reserving daily tours after arriving on the islands, for example: the game of being offered prices based on where you’re from, or not being able to find all the tours that you want with the same tour operator, or there not being availability on a tour that goes to the island you specifically want to go to (seats are limited on boats).
This is why I began making valuable partnerships with different operators who are owners of their own yachts on Santa Cruz, Isabela and San Cristobal, and can help you book the daily tours. You might find cheaper tours the day your arrive to the Islands, but you’ll risk dealing with the situations I mentioned earlier and possibly not find any of your preferred tours at all.
The idea is to avoid wasting time looking for daily tours on each island and, instead, spend that time simply enjoying the Galapagos. This type of trip is usually only done once in a lifetime and I will try my best to help you avoid any worries.
Once I receive the form below with your dates and preferred tours, I start checking for availability with the tour operators I work with. Within a day, I’ll send you results (tours + prices), or inform you if certain tours aren’t available. Once the reservation has been made, I will send you a travel info sheet (PDF) with all the details of the tours: Name of the person in charge of the tour, the operator, WhatsApp info, schedules, directions and more.
I offer: Support at any point before your trip via Whatsapp; prices based on the availability of the yachts (Bartolome, North Seymour and South Plazas); and secure payment methods to purchase your tours.
Please only use this form if you already know which tours and dates you intend to reserve/purchase. If you’re not sure yet or have questions, we offer personalized trip assessment and you’ll also find all your answers in our blog.
