ABSTRACT
The article gives advice for travelers going to the Gal�pagos Islands. The six tips include taking one of the smaller rather than larger licensed boats from Ecuador to the islands, selecting a guide based on the quality variable, and researching the best time for scheduling a trip to the islands. The reasons why cabin size is relatively unimportant and travelers need to accept being herded around are noted.
