Tour The Galapagos With NGC
NGC Tour and Environmental Studies Refresher Oct 30 - Nov 8,
NGC Tour and Environmental Studies Refresher with Optional
Extension to Machu Picchu October 30- November 8, 2015
NGC members, families, and friends will have the opportunity to
experience the fascinating Galapagos Islands aboard the National
Geographic Endeavour, an expedition ship equipped to give you the
most engaging experience possible. You will have numerous options
for viewing the endemic wildlife of the Galapagos with naturalists.
There will be opportunities each day to tour the shoreline in a
zodiac or kayak, take a gentle short walk or long hike with a
guide, snorkel, or enjoy an undersea experience on the National
Geographic Endeavour's glass bottom boat.
The weeklong optional extension will be an exploration of an
extraordinary melting pot of Peruvian history and culture. You will
see the architectural achievements of the Incan empire including
Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo, and the vast Sacsayhuamán Fortress.
And you'll experience the decorative arts: pottery, textiles,
jewelry, and sculpture that reveal the sophistication of their
artisans. You'll discover firsthand how the past echoes through
contemporary life. Expert guides will introduce you to the art,
music, and cuisine of this remarkable country. And each night your
active days end at a succession of gracious and elegant hotels.
NGC members participating in the optional post-voyage extension
will be eligible to receive refresher credit for Gardening Studies
School and/or Landscape Design School.
The price for Galapagos aboard the National Geographic Endeavour
ranges from $6290 to $10,280, depending upon cabin category. The
optional Peru extension is priced at $4990 double occupancy.
