Sailing Cruises - Best Tours & Trips 2019

Imagine waking up on a tall ship on a sunny morning, nursing a cup of coffee on deck as the warm Caribbean or South Pacific Breezes billow through the sails, and making port on some exotic island. Or sailing on a windjammer as it races along the Maine coast, heading for a lobster bake on a beach along a deserted cove. Or exploring the coast of Turkey or Kenya on a traditional gulet or dhow, just as local people have done for generations. Sailing cruises can be among the most memorable experiences you'll ever have on water, and the variety of possibilities are as boundless as the world's seas themselves.

Activity-packed and spectacular trip with 4 nights, visiting the older, drier islands of the Galapagos December 2018

A stunning and unforgettable experience in landscapes and amidst wildlife every bit as wondrous as we had anticipated! This itinerary packed in numerous landings/hikes and snorkeling opportunities and enabled close-up observation of some of the birds and iguanas for which the islands are famous. The Yolita is considered to be one of the best boats used by G Adventures: the cabins were comfortable and the common areas spacious and pleasant. The 8-person crew was outstandingly efficient, helpful and good-humoured as well as being safety-conscious. They were perfectly trained to help with the sometimes wavy and choppy transfers between boat and panga (dinghy) or boat and rocky shore! They also cooked up very good meals every day. Our guide, Alberto, was very well-organized and knowledgeable, though it took him a while to become willing to engage with questions from the guests. G Adventures has many itineraries in the Galapagos on 4 different boats, though the details of daily shore excursions can change according to the Park authorities' micromanagement to ensure that places are not crowded. If prospective travellers have the money and time to take one of the longest cruises as to visit the geologically newer western and northern islands as well, which we could not do, then you should go for it as you will see different birds and animals than in the South and East. Wildlife viewing also varies with the seasons (warm & wetter versus cool & dry. We would have appreciated having the option to extend our trip by one more night, on land (Santa Cruz) so as to have had a chance to see giant tortoises in the wild instead of having to fly back to Quito mid-morning after an interesting but rushed visit to the Darwin research station. We wish that G Adventures had offered this as an option.
Footnote: G Adventures begins and ends all its Galapagos trips at the Hilton Colon hotel, which we liked very much - very friendly for a big hotel, heated outdoor pool and an amazing buffet breakfast if you have time to enjoy it - our tour left for Galapagos at 4:30AM...

Very organized, your travel agent (Dilimar Gallardo) was very nice and gave us a warm welcome!
The punctuality of the tours and the drivers of each bus were very friendly too.
The hotels were fantastic, specially the Titania Hotel in Athens gave us a delicious fruit plate welcome in our room, and the view of it was the best, spectacular.
In other words our vacation were perfect because we never have to worry about anything, just enjoy it and relax.
I will truly recommend you as a travel agency to any of our friends or family.
Thank you!
Best regards: Patty Cuervo
