We went on the 10 day tour and got to go to the highlands to see the tortoises. Don't quote me on this but, I don't think all the shorter trips do get to go. Some of the people on our boat were only there half the time we were and didn't get to go. They went to the Darwin Centre with us and headed to the airport. Later that daywe went to see the tortoises with the new people that joined us.

That's what I too remember from my 10 day trip. It's absolutely a key part of the trip. The terrain, the countryside were gorgeous. Do the full trip. It's worth the extra time and money.

Honestly I can't remember for sure. I was feeling sick that day so was just glad I got to see them. I want to say it was like an hour or hour and a half.....
