TESTIMONIAL OF OUR CLIENTS

Fantastic trip with EGT on Tip Top V We had a fantastic 8D/7N trip on the Tip Top V boat, eastern route. We found the trip through dealsgalapagos.com which are Ecuador Green Travel. Carlos Risueno did a fantastic job from start to finish booking our trip. His communication was spot on, everything was correct, his responses very prompt. I couldn’t fault him at all. The rep who met is in Quito airport was also spot on and helped us get through the 2 additional checks you need before boarding your flight to Galápagos. The trip itself was fantastic. The boat Tip Top V was definitely first class. The boat was modern and very clean, having been built in 2019. Our cabin was big enough and had everything we needed and a balcony. The food was brilliant; a huge selection for breakfast with something different every day. Every lunch and dinner consisted of 3 courses, all was tasty and well presented. Federico would keep trying to give you more. Then there were snacks after every morning and afternoon activity. I don’t think we had the same thing twice and definitely came away a couple of kilos heavier! The crew were very professional and everything was done with care and purpose. The whole boat ran like clockwork, everyone knew their role and couldn’t do enough for you. Our original guide unfortunately had a family emergency 2 hours into our trip but the company found a replacement before we’d started the first activity. Felipe did a great job, was informative and kept us on our toes with a busy schedule. And finally the activities; every day we did combinations of walking, kayaking, snorkelling and boat trips. The days started early at 6am but that just meant we packed more in and beat almost all the other groups to the islands. Everyday we were shattered and in bed by 9pm but that was just because we’d had a great day. I could write reams about the Galápagos itself but there isn’t space, it is truly a spectacular place and incredible how close you can get to unique wildlife. A personal highlight was swimming with sea-lions. All in all we couldn’t recommend Ecuador Green Travel and Tip Top V highly enough. If you’re undecided about which companies to go with you can’t go wrong with these.

Hi Carlos Our recent trip to Galapagos was wonderful I want to express our thanks for your help and patience during the almost two years from our original booking to the actual departure. There were times I thought this trip might never happen. Thanks to you and Green Ecuador it became a reality! We also want to compliment the Seaman yacht crew. The yacht was beautiful and perfect for this type of excursion. All of the crew truly worked together as a team to make the guest experience a great one. As a small business owner for many years I see and appreciate when a team works towards a common goal. Seaman yacht is an exceptionally smooth operation. Our guide Enrique was excellent. He was extremely personable , friendly and knowledgeable. His daily briefings were very well done and provided just the right amount of detail to keep it interesting. His command of English was very impressive and he was always happy and able to answer any questions we had. I should also add that he had no problem getting into the (what turned out to be pretty cool ) ocean water to guide snorkelers twice a day. I think that him being in the water ,plus the very attentive Zodiac pilots, gave the less confident snorkelers more opportunities to see the amazing marine life . The itinerary exceeded my expectations and the specific site selection for the snorkeling was great for all levels of experience . In my personal rating system it is almost impossible to get 5 stars , but this trip was truly 5 STARS. Mark and Linda Conneticut USA

I can strongly recommend Carlos for booking a last minute tour to Galapagos with La Pinta. I had been in contact with a few other agencies before, of which I chose two to get into more detail. But then I emailed Carlos and suddenly I had everything I was looking for: a decent price yes, but most of all: a full understanding what I needed. We had some discussions about the cancellation policy and Carlos was the first and only one who fully understood my problem and who came up with a satisfying solution. So we booked with him. Everything went fine, no problems at all. I would book again with him the next time.

What a fabulous vacation! I could not be happier with our entire trip and the way it was planned and handled. Carlos was very responsive in caring for any questions or concerns I had. We told him what we wanted to see and what our primary goals were and he took care of the rest. We were not disappointed! Our guide Gustavo was tremendous as well, punctual, flexible and accommodating. Gus as we came to call him showed us an Ecuador that we would not have seen on our own. He is very knowledgeable about the country he calls home. As far as our visit to the Galapagos aboard the Nemo lll, it was like the icing on the cake. With only 16 passengers aboard we got to know everyone which was very nice, I'll take that over a large ship any day. The captain, crew and our naturalist Marcos were all amazing. Our daily treks and snorkels were always anticipated and everything was nicely planned out. My son and I had the trip of a lifetime, we made so many memories and we are so glad that we chose Ecuador! In summation, if you are on the fence about visiting this beautiful country, do it! And when you do let Carlos plan it for you and ask for Gustavo, you will not be disappointed:)

CRAIG MESEKE - USA // ECUADOR AND GALAPAGOS TRIP

We had an amazing trip to the coast and Puerto Lopez. Carlos was tremendous in booking our flights and hotels in response to a last minute request and addressing all of questions and responding to our requests. We had an amazing location the first night that allowed us to walk on the malecón in Guaquil(sp) as requested and then when we arrived the next day in Puerto Lopez entered into the most beautiful room on the beach that Carlos had booked for us!! A magical lush garden residence overlooking the ocean. We saw 15 different birds from our room in 15 minutes. The Mandala hotel was PERFECT- a magical beach retreat. The hotel was clearly the realization of an artist's dream. I cannot recommend Mandala, Puerto Lopez, or Carlos more highly. Once you get there - there is so much more to discover, beaches, sea turtle rescue centre, and watching local people bring in their fishing boats all day long. Beautiful!
