Galapagos Luxury Cruises & Island Tours

The Galapagos Islands are one of the world’s most remarkable destinations and every day is filled with bucket-list moments. Onboard our Galapagos tours everywhere you turn there are opportunities to see the thriving wildlife and nature and with each new encounter, your sense of awe increases. Looking beyond the sheer beauty of the islands lies the mass of culture and history; it was these islands that Darwin studied in great detail to develop his ‘Theory of Evolution’.

There are a number of ways to see the islands but the best way is onboard our Galapagos cruise. The large number of islands are best visited by boat as many are uninhabited and Quasar Expeditions; having won Travel and Leisures #1 Best small ship Cruise Company award for 3 years running, are an excellent choice. We focus on taking our guests’ experiences to the next level and turning an exceptional vacation into the trip of a lifetime.

Galapagos Islands Luxury Cruise

The archipelago’s wildlife-rich islands are best accessible by boat as they are usually more remote and so booking a Galapagos luxury cruise is a good decision. Most of the islands remain uninhabited meaning that many of the sights that you will see are completely unspoiled. Dense forests, untouched beaches, and large groups of wildlife are all on the agenda! Having won awards for our small ship cruises and sustainable tours, it is clear that we have the knowledge and experience to really deliver the best luxury Galapagos cruise.
