A Traveler's Guide To The Galapagos Islands presents the essentials of a "hot-to" travel adventure to the Land of Darwin. From the basics of which airlines to choose to a detailed analysis of the Tour Operator network, Barry Boyce describes the rules and tells the reader how to play the Galapagos adventure travel game. Entire chapters are devoted to such topics as choosing a tour, what to pack (and not to pack), photographic equipment (including under-water photography), Galapagos history, wildlife (with an orientation towards photo opportunities), and a detailed tour of the islands. Over 100 Tour Operators offering Galapagos programs are categorized by the type of service and tours they provide with descriptions, analyses,and price structures of all the yachts and cruise ships on which the traveler will sail the waters of the Galapagos archipelago. The readers are also put into direct contact (via FAX) with the Galapagos Tour and Boat Operators. A Traveler's Guide To The Galapagos Islands is the ideal handbook for anyone thinking of going to the Galapagos. It's also a very fun read for the armchair traveller as well! -- Midwest Book ReviewFrom Library Journal:
Intrepid travelers interested in natural history who can afford to spend a pretty penny for the privilege of roughing it may consider vacationing in the Galapagos Islands, a province of Ecuador where tourism is tightly controlled in order to protect the fragile environment. Boyce reviews the islands' history, explains its ecology and the evolution of its wildlife, and tells where to go and what to see and photograph. He describes various available tour options in detail, but this section is the most likely to become outdated, as visitor sites, tour operators, airline routes, etc., change. An annotated bibliography plus two indexes (one general, a second for tours) help the traveler prepare. For comprehensive public library travel collections. --Laurie Tynan, Montgomery Cty.
