Food & Drinks

The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.

You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.

Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.

Galapagos cruise of a lifetime! Thomas set up a Naturalist Cruise in the Galapagos on the Alya Yacht. The boat was amazing and the trip was actually better than my already high expectations. The decision to take this cruise was very last minute, and Thomas was able to get it all booked in a timely and efficient manner. I would certainly use Galapatours for any future travel, and I would recommend them if you are looking to travel to the truly Enchanted Islands of the Galapagos. Source: Google

Excellent Guidance During COVID Times I worked with Thomas in booking our Galapagos cruise and it was an excellent experience! Thomas was very clear in his communication, and we booked a 5 night cruise on the Alya with him. Thomas was helpful in explaining all the current COVID requirements, even helping us to schedule someone from the lab to help us get tested at our Airbnb in Quito. He sent us all the paperwork required to enter the Galapagos so the whole experience was pretty smooth. We loved our time in the Galapagos! The Alya exceeded our expectations in every way, and it truly was the most memorable trip of our lives! We're grateful for Thomas' guidance along the way, since it is definitely challenging to travel with so much uncertainties right now. Source: TripAdvisor

Es war einfach toll Meine Frau und ich reisen schon seit 40 Jahren um die Welt und wir sind uns einig, die Alia war eines der schönsten Erfahrungen für uns beide. Zum Glück buchten wir eine 8tages Kreuzfahrt - ein unglaubliches Erlebnis. Ich fand heraus, dass dieses Schiff eines der besten Guides im ganzen Inselarchipel hat - Maria del Carmen Ramos. Vor dem Essen tranken wir immer ein Schluck Brandy oder Portwein, das war für uns der Himmel auf Erden! Lassen Sie sich von anderen Bewertungen im Internet beirren, die Alia ist ein großartiges Schiff. Feedback from: https://goo.gl/5bfmPZ

It was simply great My wife and I have been traveling around the world for 40 years and myself for 60 both of agree this was one of the best experiences we have ever had. I was lucky enough to spend 8 days on the Alia-- This is an experience of a lifetime. Figured that this boat would have the best guides and they did Maria del Carmen Ramos is the guide you want for any trip to the Galapagos. They use induction cooking so some of the protein is firmer than it needs to be but just sitting on the top deck and having a brandy or port before dinner is heaven on earth. Please don't let the nit pickers of this world ruin what will be a incredible life changing moment in your's. Feedback from: https://goo.gl/5bfmPZ

Ein außergwöhnlich schöner Urlaub Hallo Galaptours - mein Mann und ich waren an Bord der Alia für eine 8Tages Kreuzfahrt, die in San Cristobal endete und ich muss sagen es war ein sehr außergwöhnlicher Urlaub. Alle an Bord der Alia wareb wundervoll, vor allem Lisette. Sie hat eine super Arbeit geleistet! Das Schiff war wunderschön. Wir sind schon viel unterwegs gewesen und an Bord der Alia hat man wirklich alles was man braucht und noch viel mehr. Maria, unsere Naturführerin, hatte ein erstaunliches Wissen über die Inseln. Ich empfehle diese Tour an alle weiter, die Freude an der Natur haben. Mir hat es super gefallen und ich bedanke mich nochmal bei Lisette, die sich immer gut um alle gekümmert hat.
