Tour Cancellation & Refunds:
Refunds cannot be given for this tour. If you register and cannot take the trip due to unforeseen circumstances, we can reschedule the tour for you for a future date. ‘Fear of travel’ due to COVID-19 Is now considered a foreseen event. If Pack A Fork cancels the tour, for any reason, it will be rescheduled to new dates and the credit will be carried forward.
Obtaining a ‘Cancel for Any Reason’ travel insurance policy is highly recommended.
For the safety and health of all guests, we require the full series if COVID-19 vaccinations. We will request a copy of your vaccination card. We will also require a negative RT-PCR test or rapid test taken a maximum of 72-hours prior to departure. You must have both to take this tour. Note: Exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
As of September 21, 2021, all international travelers to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands must present a negative 72-hour PCR test for entry. You will need to have this done at home within 3 days prior to departing for Ecuador. Prior to flying to the Galapagos, a lab tech will be sent to the hotel in Quito to do a PCR test for all guests at the cost of $95 per person (not covered by the tour).
At this time, all airline passengers returning to the United States must provide a negative RT-PCR or antigen test taken within three calendar days of travel. If this requirement is still in place, there is a medical center/testing station in the Quito airport where this can be done with fast results. There will be plenty of time to do this at the airport before flight departs (usually after midnight).
All COVID-19 safety measures will be followed during the tour. Please agree to abide by the directions of PAF staff and the catamaran crew to keep everyone safe. This will entail masking, social distancing and washing hands often. We will attempt to have as much outdoor seating as possible for meals.
