This is a trip for committed wildlife lovers who also like to travel in real comfort and style. I have selected the Silversea Silver Origin for your Galapagos cruise, a superb, guided cruise with five-star service. Beginning in Quito with a tour of the Otavalo's Market, with its Spanish colonial buildings, including the sumptuously gilded La Compania de Jesus Church. You will love the handicrafts by artisans of Ecuador's Indigenous communities in the highlands north of Quito.

On to The Amazon, exploring the jungle with guides and staying at the Napo Wildlife Center with overwater cabanas. Reserve canoe trips, bird watching, guided night walks by flashlight and visits to parrot clay licks in advance. Include a twilight trip to the Center's 50-foot Canopy Observation Tower that has views over the rainforest. It's a great way to see macaws flying in pairs or a horned owl.

Next, we explore The Galapagos Islands. Visit Fernandina Island, an important nesting site for marine iguanas, go snorkeling at Floreana Island to see the green turtles, explore the coves of Santiago Island by Zodiacs, looking out for blue-footed boobies, Nazca boobies and other seabirds and see the giant tortoises. In the evenings, stargaze on the deck by the firepit, choose from fine-dining restaurants on board or simply relax on your veranda, looking out over the waves with your private butler service.
