I'm trying to plan a trip to the Galapagos Islands in October/November for my honeymoon and am confused.
I've made the mistake of reading through many of the forums here and the more I read the more daunting it all becomes.
We are not regular travellers and haven't been further afield than Europe so any advice or recommendations would be welcome but I suppose the basics would be a good start:
Recommended agents, boats, trips etc
Good questions to ask before booking
Things we need to do/know before travelling
Anything that might be of help would be greatly appreciated.
I also have concerns about the tipping scenario, whereas I have no issues tipping guides/staff etc, being Brits we also struggle with the idea of the bullying staff stories posted on some of the forums here.
We are looking to be away for two/three weeks (but want to spend a short time in the US en route) and would like to have the opportunity to chill for a little while as well as take in the unique sights of Galapagos.
I hope my ramblings are OK, thanks in advance for any replies
