Punta Tombo was our favorite place in all of Argentina, so I highly recommend going there, but the tour itself was only so-so. The toninas watching was cancelled due to wind, which was very disappointing, and we received no refund for it. Instead we went to the paleontological museum in Trelew, which was fine, but no replacement for toninas, AND we paid for it out of pocket. The guide was the same we'd had for Peninsula Valdes, but he was barely trying for the English crowd this time, speaking for 10 mins in Spanish and then maybe two sentences in English. Worst of all, after Punta Tombo we were left for an hour in a town called Gaiman, a Welsh settlement where the only thing to do is pay for incredibly overpriced and according to those who got suckered, BAD tea service. So we ended up wandering a one-street town for an hour, where the most happening place in town was the gas station. Clearly the tour company is getting kickbacks for stopping here. We would have preferred just going back to Puerto Madryn an hour early.
