Retrace Darwin's footsteps through these magical islands, passing the same tortoises that he once did (yes, they live that long). Walk through fields of nesting blue-footed boobies, watching their wonderfully silly courtship dance, maybe even learning to "sky point" yourself! Swim and snorkel with playful sea lions and penguins. Discover the joys of a place where animals view you as just another curiosity.

Waved albatross pairThis is an incredible opportunity to experience the enchantment of Galapagos in the best way possible: in a small group (just 16), with an expert naturalist (at least 10 years experience), on the most seaworthy and comfortable yachts in the Islands, and with a proven support team ensuring your adventure is seamless.

INCA has been delivering Galapagos dreams since 1976 and is a leader in small-group luxury adventures. INCA is also a family business, begun and still run by Bill Roberson, Jasper & Ellie's grandfather.

Fleur de TucsonTwo Hot Air Balloon Rides

Value $300
Each 1 to 11/2 hour journey is unique, combining low level views of the beautiful desert landscape, javelina, deer, bobcat, rabbits and red-tailed hawks, and spectacular panoramas from higher elevations. We generally fly as low as treetop and as high as 3000 feet above ground, so you can get the very most out of your ballooning experience.

After landing, each flight is celebrated with a delicious continental brunch and champagne served in beautiful crystal flutes. You will hear about the history of hot air ballooning, receive 10 digital pictures of your ride and a personalized flight certificate.

Our rides are personalized for 2-5 passengers per balloon, versus the larger companies that take 10-12 passengers per balloon. We have comfortable leather seats if you prefer to sit rather than stand.

Fleur de Tucson is family owned and operated. Mike Fleury is FAA certified and has been flying for over 23 years. Mike was the key-grab winner at the 1999 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, competing against 850 other balloonists. He has accumulated over 2000 hours, flying throughout the United States and in France. Fleur de Tucson was also featured on Animal Planet´┐Żs Jeff Corwin Arizona Experience.
