14 Years of Galapagos Adventure Experience
Galakiwi has grown to become the premier land based tour operator in the Galapagos Islands. Founded by Kiwis, we started back in 2004 to meet the demand for adventurous land tours in the Galapagos and our motto was simple: Galapagos Adventure. Kiwi Spirit.
Today, Galakiwi is a respected Galapagos business, with all of our tours supporting the local economy. We are passionate about the Galapagos Islands and sharing it with each and every traveler that joins a Galakiwi tour. Our head office is based on San Cristobal Island, we're not a big international company; we're the local Galapagos experts. We live, play, and work here every day because we believe it is one of the best places on earth.
While we have travelers who have joined us for many Galapagos adventures, we do understand it is usually a special trip of a lifetime when people travel with us. We're excited to have you join us and we love to hear what made you choose to visit the Galapagos. We've learned that everyone has an interesting story! Perhaps you can tell us your story over freshly brewed Galapagos coffee at our office one morning.
Maybe we are slightly obsessed with the Galapagos, but we think that you'll understand once you visit!
Being a green tour company has always been at the heart of what we do, meaning that we're always conscious of the ecological impact of our operations, as well as those of our local business partners. We work closely with everyone involved in our operations to ensure our impact on the Galapagos environment is minimized. This philosophy extends beyond our office to the restaurants you eat at, the hotels you stay at, the farms you visit, and the boats you ride in.
This passion we have for the Galapagos can also be seen with all of our local support staff and amazing guides. We truly believe our guides are the best! They've all been part of our Galakiwi team for many years and have such a huge knowledge of the wildlife and history of the islands. We've seen many of them raise their families in the Galapagos and we consider them all to be part of our family as well.
Yes, we've grown over the years, but the heart of our company remains the same: to offer people an affordable and quality land based adventure to one the most amazing places on the planet.
