Itinerary for your Pre-Programme:

Day 1: Exploring Quito 

You'll travel from the Galápagos Islands to Quito, the historic capital of Ecuador, where your expedition cruise ends. We’ll meet you at the airport and take you to your comfortable, centrally located hotel. Take some time to settle in, enjoy the hotel’s facilities and spend the day exploring Quito at your leisure. 

At 9,350 ft, Quito is the second-highest capital city in the world, and its main draw is the exquisite Old Town which was founded on an ancient Inca settlement. A UNESCO World Heritage site, it’s packed with well-preserved colonial architecture, including colourful plazas, magnificent churches and handsome monuments.

After a delicious breakfast at your hotel, your Post-Programme comes to an end.
