Brilliant trip, really enjoyed a great tour, definitely recommend. Falklands was so interesting, and talking and meeting the people who live in Stanley was fascinating. This is a tour that is unmissable if you are planning to visit the Falklands, of course the penguins help as well.
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to South America. Expert local guide who took us to the most amazing beach literally packed with Penguins. Not to be missed
Everyone should see. Thanks
Met at the ship by a GREAT guide -- sixth generation Falkland's resident. In addition to guiding, her family owned a small 14000 acre sheep ranch. Learned about the Falkland's, sheep raising, the war -- everything one could ask. Penguins were an experience beyond description. Could not recommend more highly.
This was truly an amazing experience, we want to thank Estancia Excursions and Nyree Heathman for offering this tour through Viator. We traveled to Volunteer Point in a convoy of three jeeps with Nyree's mother as our driver. During our drive she shared the the history of Stanley including the Falkland War events and what life is like for the people who live in the Falkland Islands. Once at Volunteer Point, we were left on out own to view the penguin colony. It was incredible.
Note: our cruise ship, Holland America, let the tour groups who booked tours through them off first even the short two hour tours. The tender ride was at least twenty minutes, so this made us a bit over an hour late for our full day tour. Estancia was at the port waiting for us and others and managed the time constraints well. Also take seriously the warning to people with pre existing back and neck injuries, the off road part of the trip was especially bumpy due to the three days of rain prior to our trip. We had a cloudy day and no rain, but we had mud to navigate through during the off road portion of the trip. I found it to be fun and a little scary.
Excellent in every way possible
wonderful but trip was VERY bumpy and bounced around a lot but glad I took the tour. penguins very special...brief tour of Pt. Stanley enjoyable and enlightening.. I would give it a 9
