Tiptop III Reviews
Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:
It was great!
Everything went to plan. No delays or issues at all.
Tip Top lll was super. The crew was so professional and helpful and the cruise director was first class - precise, clear, organised and very kind. The naturalist with us was terrific and so knowledgable.
The rooms were clean and were cleaned twice a day, the food was excellent and varied, the safety and well being of passengers was a top priority and we were totally satisfied.
Most of all the landscapes, the walks, the animals and flora was unsurpassed. Breathtaking!
Snorkelling was unbelievable. We have been snorkelling in Australia and The Red Sea. They were wonderful experiences. But swimming with wild Sea Lions who were playful and curious and seeing dozens of turtles all round us under the water was the best experience imaginable.
So yes we loved it.

We came back from our Galapagos vacation and really enjoyed it. The Tip Top III provided a great itinerary and service. We had a fantastic time at the Galapagos island and hope to visit again!
