The trip was great in terms of wildlife and landscapes and our friver was amazing in spotting a lot of animals. However our guide was not reall nice with us, focused more on local, spanish speaking guests. We had half an hour at the orca place, which of course is nothing and we did not have a chance to see one. We stoped at a few places, which were nice. Bring your own water and food as there is nothing, there is a restaurant at one stop but very limited options.

Dear Nora We regret that our guide did not meet your expectations. The guide who made the excursion is a graduate guide and who has also received intensive training in our tours. All our guides are certified. However, we take this feedback and forward it to the guide as an opportunity to improve our services. On the other hand, the time at each stop is an approximation of time to enjoy all the attractions. Although February is whale high season, this doesn’t give guarantee to sighting one on the excursion. Remember, in our tour the animal is its own habitat. We really appreciate your comments as it helps us improve our services. Best Regards!

Really enjoyed this tour...

Really enjoyed this tour! Unfortunately the whale watching trip was cancelled, as the weather was really bad so windy!, but the rest was great. Our guide was personable and knowledgeable and it was a huge help that he spoke such good english. It was nice to have such a small group, with myself and another couple and the guide in a car rather than a big bus load. We saw plenty of wild life - elephant seals, sea lions, patagonian hares, burrowing owls, birdlife, heaps of guanacos and some southern right whales in their breeding ground at sunrise which was amazing. The Peninsula Valdes is an incredible place. I did have to chase up a refund for the whale watching, but once I chased it back they have told me I will have it in 3 - 5 days which is pretty good. would have been nice not to need to chase it up but not a big deal. The only thing I would change would be maybe making it clearer on the initial email to bring lunch as I only brought snacks and we didn't stop until about 3 or 4 pm in the town in the Peninsula Valdes. not a huge deal but just the little organisational things can make all the difference.

Peninsula Valdes is a great experience. The whale-watching was fun, and the sites we visited to see the seals and penguins were beautiful. The tour was excellent our guide spoke both Spanish and English well enough to provide good information on the tour for everyone. Both the service and the sight were excellent on this tour.

Seehunden, Seelöwen, Seeelefanten und Pinguine in freier Natur, mit viel G.ück auch ein Gürteltierel Glück auch

Der Ausflug war sehr eindrucksvoll. Wir haben viele Tiere gesehen. Wir waren besonders begeistert von den Seehunden, Seelöwen umd Seeelefaten. Man konnte sie gut von den Stegen beobachten. Auch die Pinguine waren sehr putzig. Wale und Orcas konnten wir nicht sehen, da die Saison nicht dafür war. Es war recht stürmisch und man sollte eine Windjacke nicht vergessen, auch wenn es warm ist. Zurück zur Cafeteria begegnete uns noch ein Gürteltier, welches wohl Futter suchte. Der Reiseleiter war auch recht kompetent. Auch die Hin-und Rückfahrt verlief reibungslos. Man sollte sich aber auf Schotterpiste einstellen.
