Joyce and Rabel Burdge will be on the 30 October trip. We are not good swimmers! What can we do to enjoy the in the water portion of the Galapagos trip? What clothes should be included for both the mountain and the water portion? Does Tip Top lll have room for a small suitcase? What is the price of beer and wine on the boat? See our colleagues soon! Rabel and Joyce

If you are going on this trip and have not read Mark Adams's book, Turn Right at Machu Pichu: Rediscovering the Lost City One Step at a Time, you might want to access a copy. My friend Mary and I (Nov 3 trip) both thoroughly appreciated the information Mr. Adams relayed plus his delightful style of writing.

Enjoy...


Sandra Sucher Sep 01, 2014 at 09:06 PM

A friend and I are considering this trip sometime during the next year. For those who have already taken this trip, when did you travel and would you do it again? Or is there a better time, weatherwise?


Sandra Kurlander Aug 25, 2014 at 08:50 PM

Are hiking sneakers enough for MP or shall I bring my boots. They are heavy and there is a weight restriction on bags.
Mary Stuewe Aug 28, 2014 at 11:45 PM

Sandra, I plan on bringing my very comfortable and versatile Keens. They are closed-toe water/hiking shoes. I think they will be perfect for getting on and off the Zodiaks and for hiking around the islands. Very lightweight, also.
Sandra Kurlander Aug 29, 2014 at 11:35 AM

Thank you for your comment I look forward to meeting you


Marilyn Allen Aug 15, 2014 at 03:51 PM

Anyone going on the Sept 22-Oct 5 trip? It would be nice to meet some folks during the 4 hour layover in Lima on the trip over.
Marilyn Allen Aug 18, 2014 at 05:05 PM

I will be staying at the hotel in the Miami airport Saturday night and will be wandering the airport most of the day and evening on Sunday. Would welcome some company if convenient for you.


Judith Rogers Aug 14, 2014 at 05:02 PM

I am with Mary on the Nov. 2 (now Nov. 3) to the 16th program. We really are looking forward to this excursion!

In looking at some of the responses below it appears some folks were not on a National Geographic boat - wet suits are available on the Endeavor - and it did not say anything about a rental fee.


Mary Stuewe Aug 14, 2014 at 04:56 PM

Anyone going on the Nov. 2-16 trip?


Marilyn Allen Aug 05, 2014 at 01:27 PM

I am arriving in Miami from Los Angeles before the departure date. Any ideas on how to fill the afternoon and evening before the 1 AM departure time, or hotel to stay in with access to shopping, restaurants, wharf, etc?
