VISIT THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS

VISIT THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS

VISIT THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS IN MAY 2020 AND EARN THREE CREDITS TOWARDS YOUR NIPISSING UNIVERSITY DEGREE REQUIREMENTS

Back by popular demand, our third Galapagos tour is on the books and has already had a good number of people signed up. Interestingly, three of the first four people to enrol for the 2020 trip participated in one of our previous Galapagos tours (2015, 2017). I am writing to invite you to join us on what previous travellers have called “the trip of a lifetime” (a most appropriate cliche). To reserve your spot on this trip and to lock in the current price, enroll by clicking on the link below and paying a $199 deposit. The trip is limited to a total of 35 travellers; all spots on previous trips were taken (we have only seven spots left on this trip and I would like as many of them as possible to go to students).

The cost of the trip (for students) is $5584. This price is very competitive compared to commercial tours (which often do not include airfare). Ours is an all-inclusive price (return airfare from Toronto to Quito and Quito to the Galapagos, hotels, meals, ground and water transportation, admissions, etc.). On previous trips, travellers ranged in age from 11 to 80+ and came from Vancouver to St. John’s. Whether in Quito or on Galapagos, we will be accompanied by an Ecuadorian Tour Director (for previous travellers, we will have Victor again!) at all times. On Galapagos, we will also be accompanied by three Park Naturalists (the Galapagos Islands are a National Park). Between them, these four resource people know EVERYTHING about the social history, religious history, natural history, art, music, cuisine, politics, economy, etc. of Ecuador. Their knowledge will greatly enhance your travel experience. Nipissing students participating in this trip can earn three course credits towards their program requirements by taking either BIOL 4506 or UNIV 3006 as a spring course in 2020. IF THE TRIP IS FULLY SUBSCRIBED, I AM CONFIDENT (but cannot as yet carve in stone) THAT I WILL BE ABLE TO REIMBURSE $400 TO EACH OF THE FIRST 8 STUDENTS TO REGISTER FOR THE TRIP AND “GALAPAGOS COURSE”. (If we have only six students, this would become $500 each.)

The trip has been posted by EF Tours at www.eftours.ca/2196384HU ; after going here, you can register by clicking on the ENROL NOW tab.
