What Our Clients Say

Julian Pickering, UK

Having spent 8 days aboard I can thoroughly recommend the Tip Top IV yacht – paying the extra compared to some other First Class options was well worth it in the end.

Cathy Macdowell

We were extremely satisfied with all levels of service on the Tip Top IV. The captain, crew and guide were very professional and pleasant.
