This trip was a great value. My extremely budget conscious daughter traveled to Iceland last year and spent more and did less than we did on this trip. I also like that we can shop for our own flights to save even more money.


Both Melissa & Wade are fantastic people, they make you feel like family and they always try to make sure that you have the best travel experience possible at the best price. I highly recommend traveling with PPGT to anyone that wants a great travel experience.


The trip was well worth the money spent. It exceeded expectations as the whole trip went so smoothly. The hosts Melissa and Wade are great!  They were very prepared and were able to answer all questions and met all of the groups needs throughout the trip.

Galapagos Islands 

“This trip more than met my expectations. I would have loved more days on the yacht. While It was more expensive than any other trip I’ve been on it was well worth the cost. It was great having all the work done for me by Penny Pinching Globetrotter.” Maureen 



The yacht we will be taking is very new and It’s beautifully decorated and has plenty of space outdoors to relax. You can learn more about the boat here 


Once you arrive in Quito most everything is included. From airfare to the islands, transportation to and from the boat, lodging before and after, delicious meals on board, Quito tour, crew and an English speaking guide, all activities on board the boat and snorkeling gear.  What is not included is airfare to Quito, required travel insurance, tips, dinner your first and last night, soda and alcohol on board the yacht, a wetsuit (most didn’t need this), and the $120 fee to enter Galápagos. 


On these trips we will do lots of nature walks and snorkeling. However, if you want to skip an activity you are welcome to hang out on the yacht. 


Here are details of what we will do on board the yacht (please note this is a sample as the islands are regulated by the park service)
