Absolutely excellent. This trip was both extremely interesting in some absolutely stunning scenery. However, the probable highlight were the three 4x4 drivers who where all both brilliant and hilarious, the tricks they pulled whilst driving "off-road" were simply awesome (I won't spoil the fun by going into details - just do it !!!). These guys were having an absolute ball, their sense of fun was truly infectious making this trip a load of fun for everyone. This was the best 1 day excursion we did whilst traveling around S America. The included lunch was simply terrific (BBQ steak / sausages etc etc, salad, fruit and as much local wine as you wanted). What a day.........
A nice little 1/2 day tour…………..train not taken as v expensive (you can book it at the station for cheaper) The bus option involved a lot of hanging about at the station (40 mins)……….. but then a couple of stops in the NP and a nice couple of walks / visit to the post office at the end of the world.
Very good, tour guide excellent.
Too long a wait for the passengers from the train to be picked up by the bus to take us all back to Ushuaia. We only took the bus.
Good 1/2 day tour - saw cormorants / seals / the light house. Couldn't hear guide (via microphone on boat) But nice to see wildlife……….
This was a great tour which exceeded my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised that the tour allowed time to visit the end-of-the world post office. I brought my passport to be stamped as I was going to seek it out later in the day. The passport stamp, 9 postcards, and the relevant stamps were $39 USD. I was able to fill them out later that day and mail from BA hotel. Also included was a visit to the end of the Pan American Highway. There were many photo opts and the fact that it was beautifully sunny, warm day enhanced the visit.
Even though it was a cloudy rainy morning, it was a great adventure, especially the train ride! The pick-up and drop-off service was really nice. We were really glad we decided to do it.
Santa Fe, NM
The sites were beautiful and sufficient time for seeing the landscape, even had time for lunch at the park. The guide and driver were fine. Very organized even for cruisers, the trip would have been double on the cruise excursion, this was the way to go!!!! Bus met us directly in front of cruise terminal.
It was wonderful and very informative .. spoke to post grad students at the Haberton Estancia and saw their work on stranded animals.
Maybe there are more penguins at other times of the year, but there were still heaps at the moment. There were plenty of birds and lots of seals too.
The only adverse comment was that we had to choose between having lunch at the Estancia or doing the tour of it, as we had arrived a little later than expected. However, given that was because we were watching wildlife, I was not all bothered by it.... Happy to forgo lunch to look at more interesting things.
A great day with close encounter with different species of birds, sea lions and of course penguins. The Estancia Haberton was quite interesting to visit as well.
It was a nice train ride to the National Park and very informative guide took us around the Park. I enjoyed the tour very much.
The Estancia Harberton tour is the one I started wondering all the way, seeing Penguins and Beagle Channel Crossing and nice food we had at the Estancia Harberton. I wish I could go there once again.
It was an excellent trip. The trip was as advertised and more. We had such a good guide.
One slight problem was that we were given an earlier time to be at the meeting point (9.00 am) and the guide had 9.45. This caused some anxiety as to whether we were in the correct place to meet. All worked out by 9.30.
Did not take train ride. Scenery was fine.
It worth the local price. Excellent but not for the price Viator charge
First way overcharged By Viator. The Penguins tour was excellent. The Estancia Harberton was no working estancia. No cows no Horses no cheeps. Time waited except for the maritine museum
