ECUADOR OVERVIEW Ecuador may be one of South America’s smallest countries, but lying between its borders on the Pacific Ocean at the equator and the countries Columbia and Peru, is an extreme amount of biodiversity that includes coastal plains, Andean central highlands, tropical Amazonian rainforest lowlands and the Galapagos Islands. Part of the northern Inca Empire until the Spanish conquest in 1533, now over 13 million people – the majority Roman Catholics – reside in landscapes dotted with incredible environmental treasures, including the snowcapped Andes Mountains, the massive Amazon River Basin, Cotopaxi – the highest active volcano in the world, and the uniquely beautiful Galapagos Islands situated just 600 miles off the Ecuadorian Coast. UNESCO has deemed World Heritage Site status onto the Galapagos Islands, as well as making it a World Biosphere Reserve due to its amazing wildlife and species, including the giant Galapagos tortoise, Blue-footed, Red-footed and Nazca Booby, flamingo, frigatebird, albatross, Galapagos Penguin, Flightless Cormorant, and 15 different species of finch. Well-known as Darwin’s living laboratory, each island may have its own endemic species due to location within the chain, climate, altitude, land texture and distinct vegetation. Another UNESCO World Heritage Site is Quito’s ‘Old Town’ – a cultural site of historic traditions, architectures and monuments. The treasures don’t stop there, because a visit to the valleys and highlands of the Ecuadorian Andes will reward you with a kaleidoscope of colors painted both on the scenery and the cultural diversity.

YOUR ITINERARY DAY 1~TUESDAY~JUNE 28 WASHINGTON D.C./QUITO Your journey begins as you board your American Airlines flight en route to Quito. Upon arrival this evening, you will be escorted to your elegant hotel which is located in the heart of historic “Quito Antigo” and surrounded by churches, museums and national monuments. An official National Treasure, Patio Andaluz holds centuries of history within its walls and is a marvelous building of Colonial origin, which offers every visitor an experience not unlike turning back in time. It was part of the original Solaris (original building sites) that constituted the City of San Francisco of Quito at the time it was founded. Enjoy the enchantment and comfort that this elegant boutique hotel offers, with large arches, balconies, and towering attics that gives the feeling of being in the republican era. The inviting guestrooms have hard wood floors, vaulted ceilings, original works of art, fresh picked flowers and feature colonial style headboards, armoires, Latin work desks with antique lamps, color televisions and large windows. Hotel amenities include a 24-hour coffee and tea station, full gourmet restaurant, a Tapas wine bar, spa, gym and solarium. Overnight at the HOTEL PATIO ANDALUZ.

DAY 2~WEDNESDAY~JUNE 29 QUITO ~ COLONIAL CITY This morning embark on a tour of Quito’s colonial quarter, the largest and best preserved of South America. With over 400 years of history and a strong Spanish heritage, you will see sublime colonial flavor in the architectural masterpieces such as private buildings and mansions, the cloisters and churches, museums and public buildings. The stroll starts at the Independence Plaza, flanked by the Cathedral, the Presidential Palace, the Municipal Palace and the Archbishop’s Palace. Visit the temple of La Compaňia de Jesús and its awesome gilded interior. Continue on to the Monastery of San Francisco, one of the great religious buildings of the New World, with its impressive façade and atrium that lead to its Baroque interior influenced by Moorish style, with the winged Virgin of Quito at its main altar. Visit Academia Latinoamericana before you return to your hotel where the rest of the day is at leisure to further explore the city and shop. Tonight enjoy a welcome dinner specially prepared for you at the hotel. Overnight at the HOTEL PATIO ANDALUZ. (B,D)

DAY 3~THURSDAY~JUNE 30 PASOCHOA PROTECTED FOREST Drive south to Pasochoa Forest Reserve which protects one of the few remaining patches of native mountain forest in the highlands. The reserve is home to over 127 species of birds, 10 species of mammal and 232 species of flora. You may spy wild goats, rabbits, bats and maybe even the elusive puma. There are dense stands of chusquea bamboo, and in May, when most flowers bloom, adjacent fields surrounded by shrubs act as a magnet for over 10 species of hummingbirds. Return to Quito and your hotel in the evening where dinner is at your leisure. Overnight at the HOTEL PATIO ANDALUZ. (B,L)

DAY 4~FRIDAY~JULY 1 QUITO/GALAPAGOS ISLANDS: BALTRA AND SANTA CRUZ ISLANDS/DARWIN STATION & HIGHLANDS In the morning you will be escorted to the airport for your flight to Baltra, via Guayaquil, where you will be transferred to Santa Cruz Island, having crossed the Ithaca channel by ferry. Your first experience as you arrive in the Galapagos will be the highlands of Santa Cruz Island where you have the special opportunity to view the island’s most famous reptile: the giant tortoise in their wild habitat. What a privilege to see an endangered species roving in this lush environment! Look for Vermilion Flycatcher and Darwin’s finches (most of them from the tree-finch group), particularly the famous Woodpecker Finch. On land and in the sea, the Galapagos Islands give the impression of a diabolic Garden of Eden. The islands' tumultuous volcanic history of scorched earth and fiery flows are evident the moment you arrive. Inhospitable. Uninhabitable. Tortured. These are the adjectives inspired by the lavaseascape. But look closer...this seemingly Spartan landscape is in fact teeming with life – the first of the Galapagos' many contradictions. Suddenly you realize that what you thought was a rock is in fact a sun-seeking iguana! And to add to your surprise, it doesn't seem the least bit perturbed by your intrusive gaze...another Galapagos contradiction. Due to their long history of isolation from humans, both land and sea animals remain virtually fearless and unaffected by visitors. This is the land that Charles Darwin visited as a naturalist on board the HMS Beagle, which was bound on a long scientific survey expedition to South America and the South Seas (1831-36). His zoological and geological discoveries on the voyage resulted in numerous important publications, and formed the basis of his theories on evolution. After having lunch in a Santa Cruz restaurant continue to Charles Darwin Research Station. Scientists from all over the globe work at the station and conduct biological research from anatomy to zoology. Get your picture taken with the giant tortoises, observe year-old tortoises and learn about the captive-breeding program. Continue to the ship where you will have a briefing on the next day's activities followed by a welcome cocktail and dinner with the Captain.

The 40-passenger Isabela II has 20 outside cabins on 3 decks and is one of the most luxurious yachts cruising the Galapagos. It is the choice to make for an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere focused on experiencing the full adventure of the islands. It is capable of speeds up to 10 knots. She is 166 feet in length and has an exceptional crew of 27, including 3 naturalists. Voltage on board is 110, the same as in the U.S. Phones are located in each cabin. From the dining room to the stateroom, one senses the superior quality at all levels of service. The specially-trained chefs prepare amazing a-la-carte selections for each meal. All cabins in this air-conditioned yacht are spacious and have private facilities. There are three public decks which offer amenities usually found in a much larger vessel. These include a bar-salon, dining room and sun deck. The library contains a variety of books on the region, as well as excellent nature and conservation videos. The Sun Deck offers ample outdoor seating with an observation area and a Jacuzzi. In addition to snorkeling, the Isabela II has a glass-bottom boat which offers yet another opportunity to observe the marine life. There are also kayaks available on a first come/first serve basis. Overnight aboard the M/Y ISABELA II. (B,L,D)

DAY 5~SATURDAY~JULY 2 GALAPAGOS ISLANDS: TOWER/DARWIN BAY & PRINCE PHILLIPS STEPS Today you will venture out to one of the most amazing and complete bird islands in the Galapagos-Tower, also known as Genovesa, where you spend an entire day. Upon arrival take a short panga ride to Darwin Bay, a trail which goes past tide pools where Swallow-tailed and Lava Gulls are seen. You then enter a forest of salt bush where colonies of Great Frigatebirds are nesting. To attract a mate, males flap their wings and inflate a red-balloon-like sack in their throats. You will also have the opportunity to swim and snorkel here. In the afternoon you will traverse Prince Phillip’s Steps. Here you can view a colony of Red-footed Boobies roosting in mangrove trees. At the end of the trail, you are on the side of the cliff with a majestic view of the bay as well as the sea birds flying back and forth in front of you. See Red-billed Tropic birds, frigatebirds, Masked Boobies, Storm Petrels, Shorteared Owls and fur seals. Overnight aboard the M/Y ISABELA II. (B,L,D)

DAY 6~SUNDAY~JULY 3 GALAPAGOS ISLANDS: ISABELA ISLAND (TAGUS COVE) & FERNANDINA ISLAND (ESPINOZA) This morning you will visit Tagus Cove on Isabela Island, where 19th and 20th century ships’ graffiti can be seen on the towering cliffs. After hiking beyond Darwin Lake, a saltwater lagoon above sea level, you will be rewarded with extraordinary views of Darwin and wolf volcanoes. Six volcanoes flowed together and formed Isabela, the largest Island in the Galapagos. At Elizabeth Bay enjoy a panga ride through the mangrove area to see the rays, turtles, sea lions, and, circling

overhead, Galapagos Hawks. A colony of Penguins inhabits a rocky islet at the entrance to Elizabeth Bay. Enjoy lunch on board while navigating to Fernandina Island. Disembark at Punta Espinoza, Fernandina. Located in the western part of the archipelago, Fernandina is the youngest and most pristine Island found in the Galapagos. Hundreds of marine iguanas, the largest colony in Galapagos, bask in the sun along the rugged shoreline. Observe sea lion harems with resident bulls carefully guarding their territory. Flightless Cormorants build their nest on the point and Galapagos Hawks fly overhead. Evidence of recent lava flows formed by an active volcano stretch their way around the coast. Overnight aboard the M/Y ISABELA II. (B,L,D)

DAY 7~MONDAY~JULY 4 GALAPAGOS ISLANDS: JAMES & BARTOLOME ISLAND This morning you will visit the area of Sullivan Bay at Santiago as James Island is also known, a cascade of lava punctuated at water's edge with fine white sand, was formed by the flow from a nearby shield volcano that erupted at the turn of the century. (The present Sulivan Bay was not in existence when James Sullivan, from whom the bay takes its name, visited the Galapagos as second lieutenant aboard the HMS Beagle with Charles Darwin.) Together, Bartolome and Sulivan Bay evoke a lunar landscape of cones and craters in varying shades of deep chocolate and light brown, black, and gray. At Sullivan Bay you can find shapes and textures of trees which once existed here and Hornitos caused when pockets of gas or water trapped under the lava exploded. The Sullivan Bay lava is known as Panoehoe (Hawaiian for Rope). This thin-skinned lava’s molten material cools down after an eruption causing the surface materials to buckle creating a rope like appearance. Panoehoe Lava is rare to the rest of the world except for the volcanoes of Hawaii and the Galapagos Islands. This afternoon’s excursion is to Bartolome, a small rugged island off the eastern shore of Santiago where it seems like you are walking on the moon. This young island is inhospitable to most plants and animals. Embark on a 30minute climb to a summit of a once-active volcano for a panoramic view which includes the guardian point of Pinnacle Rock, the worn-away remnant of a cone composed of spewed ashy particles. This is a steep climb aided by a wooden staircase but the view from the top is worth the effort. Down below, the water is crystal clear, and you can swim and snorkel with schools of fish after your hike. On the other side, you will find sea turtles and white-tipped sharks close to the shore. You will have time to enjoy snorkeling and swimming from the beach with the endemic Galapagos penguins that frequent this cove. Overnight aboard the M/Y ISABELA II. (B,L,D)

7


DAY 8~TUESDAY~JULY 5 BALTRA ISLAND/QUITO Disembark your cruise onto Baltra Island and transfer to the airport for your flight to Quito. Upon arrival transfer to your hotel and enjoy the rest of your day at leisure to explore and shop. Overnight at HOTEL PATIO ANDALUZ. (B)

DAY 9~WEDNESDAY~JULY 6 MINDO CLOUD FOREST Early this morning depart for Mindo Cloud Forest, a short two-hour drive to the northwest of Quito. Cloud forests have a delicate, misty appearance and feature many plants that can live off the airborne moisture alone. Common plants in the cloud forest are tree ferns, epiphytes and orchids. Mindo is home to around 300 species of orchids alone. This area of primary forest also has some of the highest rates of plant endemism in the world: bromeliads, heliconias, vines, mosses and lichens grow in abundance here. Stop at the brim of the crater of dormant Pululahua Volcano, just north of the equator, considered by the natives as the Earth’s navel. It is a physical and energy-filled planetary center, probably responsible for Pululahua's (meaning cloud of water) quasi mystical power of attraction. Its huge crater, with its own microclimate, is inhabited and its rich soil farmed in colorful patches; it suddenly disappears from view among the clouds, only to appear a few minutes later. This is an overwhelming experience. Continue to a private property whose owner is a fan of hummingbirds and has installed many feeders that attract large numbers of these fantastic birds – many of them endemic to the area.

8


Next visit is to Bellavista, deep in the heart of the cloud forest, where you will don rubber boots and immerse yourself in the cloud forest, along hiking trails that wind through this natural sanctuary, where the sight of brightly colored tanagers and the Mountain Toucan will thrill nature lovers. Your guide will assist you to spot the wildlife and the vast variety of birds that inhabit this area. There are binoculars for rent at Bellavista so everyone can see the wonderful sightings close up. Enjoy lunch here, served among clouds that come and go creating an aura of mystery and magic, while watching a multitude of hummingbirds hover around the feeders. In the afternoon, arrive at the lodge for room assignment and freshen up before an optional hike to observe a lek (a place of courtship of birds) of the very attractive cock-of-the-rock, where up to 12 birds flying from one branch to another, displaying their red feathers to attract the females amid loud calls, is an awesome and seldom seen sight. At the end of the day, return to the comfortable lodge for dinner. Overnights at MINDO CLOUD FOREST. (B,L,D)

DAY 10~THURSDAY~JULY 7 MINDO CLOUD FOREST/QUITO Following a hearty breakfast at the lodge, a one-hour hike will lead you in search of nature's undiscovered treasures on a trail through lush, epiphyteladen cloud forest. Then, it’s downhill by car to the Valley of Mindo, past the quaint little village of the same name and on to the Butterfly Vivarium, housing 25 varieties of butterflies. Flight areas simulate the outside forest with water streams, mineral deposits, and a wide range of wild flowers. Hundreds of caterpillars feed on their host plants in their natural environment to assure the best development of pupae and butterflies. Lunch is served and then you’re off to El Pahuma Reserve for a 45-minute nature hike alongside a lively, sparkling creek to the 135 feet Pacaya waterfall. El Pahuma Reserve is a privately owned forest of an Ecuadorian family who is searching for a viable economic alternative to destructive activities such as logging or cattle rising, and protects over 600 hectares (over 1,500 acres) of tropical forest. At El Pahuma you can also view their orchid garden where you have a representative collection of the many types of orchids of the area. On the way back, a stop is made at the Equator, on the site where the original monument marks Latitude Zero. Return to Quito late this afternoon just in time for your farewell dinner. Overnight at HOTEL PATIO ANDALUZ. (B,L,D)

DAY 11~FRIDAY~JULY 8 QUITO/WASHINGTON D.C. This morning your journey will come to a close as you transfer to the airport for your return flight home. Whenever you look back on this experience just know that you’re in good company – Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands have touched the hearts and imaginations of Lord Byron, Charles Darwin and countless others like yourself. (B)

OPTIONAL POST-EXTENSION TO PERU A minimum of 5 reserved travelers is required for this extension

DAY 11~FRIDAY~JULY 8 QUITO/LIMA Bid farewell to the rest of the group returning to the USA and prepare for your next journey. Board your flight to Lima, where you will be met and escorted to your hotel which is located in the lovely suburb of San Isidro by a beautiful forest which has more than 450 year-old olive trees. Designed to grant you the most comfortable stay, the hotel offers luxury rooms furnished with air conditioning and cable television. A Restaurant, Cafeteria, and many other amenities, as well as its professional staff, make this a wonderful place to stay while in Peru's ancient capital city. Overnight at EL OLIVAR HOTEL. (B)

DAYS 12/13~SATURDAY/SUNDAY~JULY 9/10 CUSCO/YUCAY/OLLANTAYTAMBO/PISAC Begin your day with a flight to Cusco, where you'll board your bus for your drive to Yucay which is located in the heart of the Urubamba Valley, the sacred valley of the Incas. Probably the most popular of all the hotels in the Sacred Valley is the Posada del Inca, where you will be staying the next couple of nights. Originally a small hotel designed within a 300year old monastery, it has grown beyond that today and now has a total of 69 rooms, located in multiple buildings around plazas and lovely gardens. All rooms are large, with small heaters and plenty of hot water in the private bathrooms. Some rooms overlook courtyards, while others face gardens. For the adventure seeker, Yucay's mild weather and year-round sunny skies provides the ideal setting for white-water rafting, mountain biking, hang-gliding, trekking, and horseback riding. For those of you who’d prefer something less physical, Yucay is also perfect for bird-watching or for just contemplating a landscape of breathtaking natural beauty. During your stay, visit the town of Pisac. A vital Incan road once snaked its way up the canyon that enters the Urubamba Valley at Pisac. The citadel, at the entrance to this gorge, now in ruins, controlled a route which connected the Inca Empire with Paucartambo, on the border of the eastern jungles. Set high above a valley floor patch worked by patterned fields and rimmed by vast terracing, the stonework and panoramas at Pisac's Inca citadel are magnificent. Terraces, water ducts and steps have been cut out of solid rock, and in the upper sector of the ruins, the main Sun Temple is equal to anything at Machu Picchu. Above the temple lie still more ruins, mostly unexcavated, and among the higher crevices and rocky overhangs several ancient burial sites are hidden. Pisac also offers a very colorful "Market Day" every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. You can purchase handcrafted jewelry and leather, beautiful woolens and ponchos, carpets and alpaca products. You will also spend part of a day exploring Ollantaytambo which is a major Inca fortress and one of the few places where the Spaniards lost a major battle during the conquest. Ollantaytambo is a massive citadel which served as both a temple and a fortress. The Inca considered Ollantaytambo a temple rather than a fortress, but after their defeat, the Spanish called it a fortress and it has been referred as such ever since. The temple area is at the top of the terracing. The stone used for these buildings was quarried from the mountainside six kilometers away and high above the opposite bank of the Rio Urubamba – transporting the blocks from the quarry to the site was a stupendous feat, as of yet, no one has been able to establish how it was done. At the town of Huambutio, the Urubamba River presents a challenge and you will have an opportunity to experience it. Begin an optional two-hour rafting program, passing by the town of San Salvador. The rafting is for beginners, grade 2/2.5 difficulty on a scale of 6. Overnights at the POSADA DEL INCA HOTEL YUCAY. (B,L Daily)

11


DAY 14~ MONDAY~JULY 11 MACHU PICCHU Today you depart on one of South America's most scenic rail trips from Ollanta Station to the legendary "Lost City of the Incas," Machu Picchu. Your one and a half-hour rail journey is filled with breathtaking .sights, en route to this mountain-top sanctuary of the Incas (which was hidden from the world until 1911 when Yale archaeologist Hiram Bingham rediscovered it.) Machu Picchu straddles a high ridge, with sheer cliffs on three sides, and the Urubamba River curves around it and fills the canyon with its roar. In all directions, there are the Andean peaks covered in jungle green, a spectacular setting for these ancient ruins. There are temples, houses, terraces for growing crops that could be functional today and even gardens and a sacrificial altar. No one knows what happened to this civilization and why this city mysteriously disappeared, adding to the allure and spirituality of this incredible World Heritage site. Your gracious home, the Pueblo Hotel, is in the heart of Machu Picchu National Park and near the town of Aguas Caliente. Surrounded by twelve acres of spectacular cloud forest, it is considered a genetic bank due to its wealth of biodiversity. Be sure to explore the orchid trail on the hotel grounds; it is the world’s largest native species orchid garden, with 372 species of native orchids. In addition, 154 bird species, 108 butterfly species, more than 200 species of trees, and a great variety of reptiles and mammals, including two spectacled bears, have been seen. The hotel offers activities that promote contact with nature and the local culture and implements projects for researching and conserving the local flora and fauna in cooperation with prestigious international institutions. The decor combines the richness of the native materials and colorful handcrafted furnishings, in a charming Spanish colonial style setting, with most of the objects being natural or handmade. A spacious lounge area, beautiful fireplace, comfortable sofas and reading material on Peru, delicious food served in a dining room decorated with Pucara ceramics, and illuminated gardens, add to the charm of this distinctive hotel and ensure a comfortable and memorable stay. Overnight at the MACHU PICCHU PUEBLO HOTEL. (B,L)

DAY 15~TUESDAY~JULY 12 MACHU PICCHU/CUSCO A chance to enjoy further sightseeing in Machu Picchu as well as a trek to the citadel of Winaywayna, located only three miles from Machu Picchu, passing by the Inti Punku via the Inca trail. You need to be physically fit for this trek, as it is quite steep and the terrain is rough in high altitude. In the afternoon, you will be returning to Cusco via rail, which takes approximately three and a half hours. Upon check in at your hotel, the evening is at leisure. Your home for the next two days will be at the Libertador, a charming five star luxury hotel in the heart of this historic city, occupying the fabulous “Casa de los Cuatro Bustos,” where Francisco Pizarro, first Spanish governor of Peru, lived. It was built on the

12


foundations of the “Accla Huasi,” where the chosen virgins of the Inca lived, and some of its original walls still remain. The house was restored in 1976, to become the present-day Hotel. The “Inti Raymi” restaurant offers excellent Peruvian and international food and a spectacular presentation of Andean dances. In the “Rumi” bar you can appreciate an original Inca wall while tasting the traditional “pisco sour.” You are sure to appreciate your comfortable rooms, the excellent location of the hotel, and all the amenities that it offers. Overnight at the HOTEL LIBERTADOR CUSCO. (B,L)

DAY 16~WEDNESDAY~ JULY 13 This morning you will have the opportunity to explore Cusco on your own. Your hotel is conveniently located close to most of the major sites. But don’t venture off for too long, as this afternoon you will enjoy a guided tour of Cusco, the oldest continuously inhabited city in the western hemisphere. Cusco combines both the Incan and Spanish cultures and

it's very picturesque. It's not unusual to see the natives dressed in traditional clothing, walking with their llamas in tow in the surrounding hills. The locals speak Quechua and are quite artistic. Children play along the columns of the squares, women sell their wares, and men can be entertaining you with Andean music from local instruments. Wherever you look, there's a lot of color and excitement. The city is very old and many of the roads and stone walls are from Incan times. Some of the walls are made from immense stones, so closely fitted together, that nothing can be passed between them – reminds one of the great pyramids and what a colossal feat it was to get them constructed in an age where heavy-lifting tools were not available. Your excursion will include such archaeological treasures as the ancient Inca Temples of the Sun and the Moon; the gigantic Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman (pronounced sexy woman,) the Kenko amphitheatre with its unusual stone carvings, and Tambo Machay, the traditional bathing place for the Inca royalty whose water source remains a secret to this day. The evening is at leisure to try that delicious cuisine one more time. Overnight at the HOTEL LIBERTADOR CUSCO. (B)

DAYS 17/18~THURSDAY/FRIDAY~JULY 14/15 CUSCO/LIMA/EN ROUTE/WASHINGTON D.C. Your flight this morning returns you to Lima where the rest of your day is at leisure. A dayroom is provided for you at EL OLIVAR HOTEL. Tonight you may wish to take a final stab at Peruvian cuisine, which is delightful and may want to discover one of Lima's numerous fine restaurants. Transfer to the airport for your flight home. (B)

THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ECUADOR, THE GALAPAGOS & PERU Mainland Ecuador  Quito is located at an altitude of close to 9,000 feet and may present acclimatization problems for individuals. Many of the visits to volcanoes and the countryside are also at higher altitudes.  Guayaquil is at sea level but has a high degree of humidity. To enjoy this destination to its fullest, travelers must be in good physical condition and consult with a medical professional should there be any respiratory ailments. Galapagos  Participants must be able to climb in and out of vehicles and boats/pangas unassisted. Bear in mind that some landings are wet, and others are dry, so you need to be able to get in and out of the boats easily enough and proper footwear is essential.  You should also be able to tolerate nature walks at an easy pace on uneven terrain, sometimes uphill, for three or four hours at a time in heat and humidity. The islands are volcanic and the ground in many cases is jugged and uneven. You should have good stability as falling can cause injury.  To enjoy this destination to its fullest, travelers must be in good physical health. Peru Your visit includes considerable walking/hiking at high altitudes (over 9,000 feet at Machu Picchu and 11,150 feet in Cuzco). These walks are uphill, on uneven ground, at various sites and ancient ruins. You must be in excellent physical health to enjoy this destination to its fullest. These conditions and altitudes may pose problems to participants with particular physical issues and you should always consult your personal physician before embarking on such an adventure. General  True adventure in travel can sometimes be accompanied by unexpected changes in conditions, itineraries and occasionally your accommodations. Participants should travel with a spirit of adventure and flexibility. Remember to pack your patience and sense of humor! Be willing to look past self-imposed ideals of Western amenities and do not compare these new experiences with your life back home.  Travel often includes visiting destinations with modest infrastructures and a bending definition of comfort. That being said, some locations are nestled in absolute luxury where pampering is the norm.  Participants should generally be in good health and prepared to travel in locations without medical facilities. Air Schedules Choosing the best possible air arrangements for our travelers is always a challenge. We work with many airlines that offer the best level of service, routings and value for our programs. While there may indeed be more direct routings available with another airline, the cost of these flights may not be within the budget that allows us to give you the best value possible. If you prefer to purchase your own international air, please feel free to choose the “land only” rate for this program. The start and end city for the main program is Quito, the extension returns from Lima, Peru. Upon registration, you must provide your full legal name as it appears on your passport. In the event an airline ticket is issued with incorrect information you have provided, you will be responsible for charges associated with reissuing the ticket.

CONDITIONS OF TRAVEL: HOW TO BOOK: Fill out the reservation form below and send it to Classic Escapes, together with a deposit of $750 per person, plus $250 for the post-extension. On receipt of your signed reservation form and deposit, we will, subject to availability, reserve your place on your tour. When we send off your confirmation invoice, your booking is confirmed and accepted by us. Final payment is due no later than 95 days prior to departure (March 25, 2011). Final documents will be sent to you approximately two weeks prior to departure. AIR TRANSPORTATION: Roundtrip economy-class jet transportation from WASHINGTON D.C., via AMERICAN AIRLINES and/or other IATAN carriers is not included. Rates are based on special promotional fares and cancellation fees apply once tickets are issued. Departures from other cities in the USA are possible at additional cost. Kindly inquire at the time of reservation. AIRLINE SEATING: For American Airlines, we request seats together for the group. All planes are non-smoking. We can request a seating preference on your behalf, however this is only a request and not guaranteed. Requests should be made in writing no later than 60 days prior to departure. Bulkhead and/or emergency row seats can only be requested at airport check-in on the day of departure. Boarding passes will only be issued at the airport on the day of departure. You may inquire during check-in to have a seating change made, however this change is based on availability and is at the sole discretion of airport staff. FREQUENT FLYER MILEAGE: At time of publication, American Airlines is a partner with Alaska Airlines, Aer Lingus, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, LAN Airlines, Qantas Airways, Air Pacific, Hawaiian Airlines, Japan Airlines, Mexicana, SN Brussels Airlines, SWISS, Turkish Airlines. You may obtain frequent flyer mileage on any of these carriers. Present your frequent flyer card for all flight checkins and keep the boarding passes until you receive a statement with the mileage credit BAGGAGE: International flights from the U.S. allow one piece of checked luggage, not exceeding 50 lbs. However we recommend you travel as light as you can manage. The baggage limit on Galรกpagos flights is one piece at 44 lbs. per person (plus a carry-on bag.) Also, the size and the structure of the bag is limited. Soft duffel bags are ideal. Large suitcases are virtually impossible to stow on the vessel and therefore should not be used. We highly recommend that you obtain the optional insurance policy. Information will be sent to you upon receipt of reservation form. ACCOMMODATIONS: You will marvel at the wonderful accommodations provided throughout your tour. In the mainland, all rooms have private facilities, and all rates are based on double occupancy. Most rooms are twin-bedded, but king-size beds are occasionally available and should be requested in advance. Accommodation of the cabins on board the vessel is based on cabin specified on reservation form by traveler, and are on a first-come/first-served basis. If cabin specified is not available at the time of booking, cabin closest to requirement will be assigned. Accommodations listed in this itinerary are correct at time of writing, but on rare occasions can change for similar lodging. SINGLE SUPPLEMENT: Rate quoted is valid for first two single rooms booked. If more than two single rooms, additional supplement will apply. Singles are assigned on a first come/first serve basis. Single accommodations are not guaranteed, but will be provided at additional cost if available (see reservation form for cost.) The single room supplement pays for privacy, not better accommodations. On occasion, in smaller lodges and camps, you may be required to share with other members of your tour group if single rooms are not available upon check-in. If this is the situation, appropriate per diem refunds are made to passengers in the event they paid for a single room but had to share during any portion of their trip. For passengers who are traveling alone and wish to share a room with another tour member, we will do our best to provide a roommate. However, if this is not possible, you will be required to pay the single room supplement prior to your departure from the USA. MEALS: American breakfast in Quito. All meals while on cruise. Continental breakfast in Peru. All other meals as specified on the itinerary. TRANSFERS: Roundtrip transfer of travelers between airports and hotels are included in the tour when arriving on group flights.

STRAND PALACE HOTEL. (Meals Aloft,D) Arrive in London today, where you will be met by your specialist guide and escorted to your hotel. London’s reputation as a theatre-rich city can be traced to the support and appreciation for the arts during the Elizabethan era. It was the time of the great English playwrights Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare. Elizabeth’s reign saw the construction of the first permanent theaters in London; these included The Theatre (1576), the Rose (1587), the Swan (1595), and the theater that would most famously be linked with Shakespeare, the Globe. Your centrally located hotel was originally built as an Art Deco showpiece and has been carefully modernized since, featuring many amenities. Highlights: • Enjoy a welcome dinner as you get to know your fellow travelers during your first evening in London.
