Small Group Punta Arenas Shore Excursion: Fort Bulnes and City Tour
There was supposed to be 4 of us on the tour but one couple didn’t show up so we ended up having a private tour. Our guide was excellent! Very knowledgeable about the area, history, flora & fauna, etc. He spoke very good English. We were lucky enough to have a calm day and see plenty of dolphins. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour.

Small Group Punta Arenas Shore Excursion: Fort Bulnes and City Tour
The tour content was fantastic. We had issues when we were first onshore with miscommunication regarding payment of the tour. Once this was solved we headed off to fort bulnes on the recommendation of our guide. Fortunately we missed large tour groups which was an advantage. Lunch was wonderful as well as our city tour. We were not rushed and our guide was always considerate. Our only negative was that our guide's English was difficult to understand and we missed a lot of the information. Great day!!

Great Shore Excursion

Small Group Punta Arenas Shore Excursion: Fort Bulnes and City Tour
We had to be tendered in and was 20 minutes early, but our guide was already there with a sign. It's the 500th year anniversary of the first circumnavigation of the Earth accomplished by Ferdinand Magellan so this was an appropriate tour! Though the Victoria ship is a replica, but a very good one, going inside the ship put me in awe as to how how these men survived to finish their trip in 3 years. Made me feel so spoiled in our cruise ship! This tour also included a cemetery, city tour, and a delicious wine and empanada for lunch in a house which looked over the Strait of Magellan. They even gave us a delicious snack into the tour. Our guide was excellent, thank you!! Learned a lot about the city and it's history.

Our guide Gerado did an excellent job managing a challenging group of differing tastes and physical abilities. Informative and passionate about his city, we found him an excellent guide. For lunch he took us into Kiosco Roca for a snack. The place was completely packed with locals with barely enough room to get inside and he helped us place our order. We had the opportunity to visit the Nao Victoria and Beagle replicas, cemetery, central plaza and Salesian museum before driving down the coast to Fort Bulnes. We had to pay entry fees along the way, which was a bit unusual, but clearly outlined in the tour promotion. Having spent time in the US, his English was excellent, and enjoyed the places that he visited so much that he even planned to go to Fort Bulnes himself the next day with his own family.
