Dear Lilian,

We had a great time on our trip to the Galapagos Islands. The boat was great, the tours were unbelievable, and the snorkeling was fantastic. We love Sea Lions , and they were everywhere! I especially love the fact that from the moment we started our vacation there was someone from Tip Top to guide us from Quito airport to start our trip, to Baltra on our way back to Quito. I can’t say enough good things about you, your company, and Tip Top, I’m telling all of my family and friends to go to the islands!

On our last day in Quito we went to an animal sanctuary, our tour guide, Gustavo, to Cotopaxi told us about it. My daughters had a great time playing with the dogs, we came back to the hotel covered in dirt from our shoulders to our shoes.

Again, thank you for everything.

Best regards,

Hi Veronica,

Sorry for the delayed response. We were traveling a bit more and then I've been super busy back at work and very behind on my emails.

The Tip Top IV was AMAZING!!!!! We had the best time. We got super lucky with a top guide (Etienne DeBacker). The crew was fabulous. We really liked the upper deck cabins a lot. The food was super delicious, and they were able to accommodate vegan meals. We also were very fortunate to have a nice group of fellow guests. My parents and I had a really great time. It was truly the trip of a lifetime. Thank you so much for your help in arranging this cruise. I would highly recommend TIp Top IV to anyone! I have referred a colleague of mine to you who is planning a trip in the next few months. You may already be in contact with Tiffany Heu.

Thank you again so much for everything! The trip was spectacular!
