Review of Avalon’s “Discover the Galapagos and Peru” Tour WGG
Pros: Machu Picchu is spectacular; the Metropolitan Tour Directors in Peru and Ecuador were outstanding.
Cons: High Altitude, Early Mornings, Poor Galapagos Cruise arrival and departure arrangements
Cabins nearer to the front of the boat will be quieter as those toward the stern get a lot of engine noise. The Classic Cabin Double, for a couple, will require one of you to climb over the other as the bed is surrounded by wall on three sides. The rooms were adequate and serviceable, but worn and not overly clean. "Outside" stateroom means that your door and window are on an outside passageway. The passageway is enclosed with clear plastic for temperature control. Do not plan on any good views from your room - the drapes will be closed the entire time for privacy and the exterior plastic is less than picture clear.
