Metropolitan Touring Galapagos
Pioneer in Galapagos island cruises
Metropolitan Touring pioneered travel to the Galápagos Islands in the early 1960s. We pride ourselves on the quality of our trio of expedition Galapagos island cruise tours vessels and our eco-hotel, our safety standards, our loyal and outstanding staff and our commitment to giving our guests an incomparable experience of the Islands while preserving their riches for future generations.
There is no place on Earth like the Galápagos Islands. Far out in the Pacific Ocean, this archipelago was formed by titanic geothermic upheavals that created volcanic islands, some of which are still in the throes of creation today.
When Charles Darwin visited in Galapagos in 1835, he observed a pristine, naturally-isolated living laboratory that would inspire and refine his theories, which he would release upon the world – to shattering effect – decades later. The islands have not lost their ability to inspire: the magic Darwin found over 150 years ago is still thriving in this remarkable environment.
While you experience our Galapagos cruises, you can walk among unique species such as marine iguanas basking in the sun and observe the elaborate mating rituals of blue-footed boobies, albatrosses and frigate birds. Unthreatened by predators, who, one and all, come away inspired and changed by their experience of nature here.
