Galapagos Islands

Charles Darwin called the Galapagos Islands, “a little world within itself.” A visit to the Archipelago is an unforgettable experience. In this exceptional natural environment, the animals have no instinctive fear of humans, allowing you amazingly close encounters with unique species such as Blue-footed Boobies, Galapagos Penguins, Flightless Cormorants, and 400-pound giant tortoises. Isolated from the mainland for millions of years, these volcanic islands remain very active.

I've done a lot of study abroad courses, and I have to say that Andean Discovery delivers the kind of high quality, action-packed tour that my students love.
