Tauck or A&K or Lindblad ???

my husband and I are trying to book a 2 week trip to Galapagos and Machu Picchu for next Spring 2014. We are stuck between the 15 day Tauck Peru and Galapagos atrip, the Lindblad trip or some combination of A & K's galapagos and Peru truos.

Any comments, opinions on which is better, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Stephanie,

while Tauck and A&K are great travel companies, only Lindblad actually runs its own ship in Galapagos (with National Geographic). But otherwise, all things are equal I would say.

Warmest regards,

Dear Stephanie,

As Heather mentioned they are all good companies. I just wanted to clarify that A&K actually does own 50% of the Eclipse, therefore they do have their own operation as well. In the case of Tauck, they resell the trips operated by Metropolitan Touring.

Enjoy a great trip,

We chose A&K because Eclipse has larger cabins and is always a Conde Nast Traveler Readers Choice. It was the trip of a lifetime!
