The prices did go up pretty quickly because my signed paperwork got lost in the mail and the reservation had to be re-made, and a couple of weeks later my invoice reflected a higher #, but my TA took care of it right away, restored our original price and the above is what we paid. The we paid for our air through ABD too, so each persons whole package was much closer to $6500.

I think since then ABD tries to get the pricing out by May so that people can plan their summer vacations a year or more in advance. (Sayhello can probably confirm that!) I was a little freaked out planning a trip of this magnitude less than a year out, but that was how it was in 2011. Good luck!!
Yes, everything points to the new schedule coming out in mid-to late May like it did in 2012.

We don't have an ABD booked, but those of us booking for 2012 howled long and hard about them releasing dates in Aug in 2011 and I think they made the effort to do it earlier in 2012 for 2013 trips. There was a lot less hue and cry last year, so it's likely they will try to get close to the same time of year again, rathe than hear from the likes of us again

Kim - I hope you get to go, it is an amazing trip!

Thanks! This is one that I have been wanting to do. I have been reading your trip report and looking at your photos which got me even more interested. Thank you for taking the time to put together such an informative report! And thanks for the information about the pricing.

I've added you to the roll call.

Did you switch before the 14 days were up?

I haven't done the Galapagos yet (some day!) but Greece was AMAZING! It's the favorite of my 5 trips so far, just squeaking by the Arizona & Utah trip. I'm a bad influence, I guess!

We are leaving today for Ecuador and the Galapagos. This is our first ABD trip. We tried last year with a DCL add-on but the reservation was lost and DCL/ABD was unable to fix it. Keep your fingers crossed for us! 6 ppl, 10 and 8 yr olds plus two grandparents.

I'm so sorry about your DCL/ABD add-on! DCL administrates all that, so I imagine ABD's hands were pretty well tied.

But you're off to Ecuador!! Have a FABULOUS trip! Be sure and come back and tell us all about your trip! Just be aware, ABD's are HIGHLY addictive!

Safe travels!
