TIP TOP II CRUISE REVIEWS

Cruise rating: 4/5 - 4 customer reviews

Hello!

It was beyond my expectations! The room was larger than any I've had on my previous 8 cruises. Food was healthy, tasty and generous. All on board were helpful and fun. Our travel companions were great. Angelina the guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and pushed us hard. I list 4# and joined a gym at home to keep up my new found energy! Our snorkeling trips were,wonderful especially middle Isabela where we swam with penguins, sea lions and turtles laughing while under water!

Bellavista room was again great, people helpful, hummingbirds, flora interesting, and hikes prepared us for Galapagos. Termas Papallacta spa was lovely and my massage was top notch.

Thank you for a delightful time!

Hi Lilian

We returned from Galapagos and Amazon last month and everything was perfect for our honeymoon. I want to thank you very much for all your time helping me to plan things and making such good arrangements so things worked smoothly for us.

I really appreciate your services and will be sure to recommend you to friends who are considering a trip to Ecuador.

All the best,

Hi Gabriela,

Janice and I had a fantastic time in the Galapagos. The Tip Top experience was great -- very professional and well done. We also felt you did a great job with transfers, hotels, guides, etc in Quito -- everything went smoothly with no hassle at all! Thank you for your oversight of the trip and its arrangements -- we're both very grateful for a truly memorable vacation experience.

Thanks again!
