We had an excellent guide, Anna, who seemed to know everything about the area an its flora and fauna, The bus driver and the boat captain were great as well. Walking with the penguins was the highlight of our trip so far. Other excursions do not get this close to the. Penguins. This is the best!

Excellent tour. We enjoyed the whole experience. The drive to the estate was breathtaking as you pass mountains, valleys, and lakes. The actual hour with the penguins is unforgettable. It was fascinating to see how the penguins behave. You literally walk among the penguins and can see how the different species of penguins live and pass their time. The guide was always cordial and interesting. We also fully enjoyed the time at the estate - the cake and coffee, as well as the museum tour. This tour is a must if you go to Ushuaia.

This was an incredible experience! This is the only tour allowed on the island itself, as they continue to conserve the penguin population. Our guide was an Ushuaia native, and had SO many things to share about the area and history. The tour was fully bilingual. We were lucky to have warm weather and sun, which made the experience even more magical. I highly recommend this tour- a chance to learn more about penguins, and see their fascinating habitat!

It was a lot of fun being that close to so many penguins in their natural habitat. My wife was absolutely thrilled by the experience. Seeing the penguin nests and juveniles up close was very educational. Lots of good pictures and videos. As luck would have it, we took a Beagle Channel cruise the following day and ended back with the penguins. There is no comparison between the two penguin experiences. One does not appreciate how many penguins there were beyond the shore and get to experience being in the nesting area when stuck on the boat.

This tour was amazing. Loved the time with the penguuns and the museum visit. Guide and driver both excellent. Weather not kind only negative was communication from local company. Start of tour was late due to weather and we were left waiting at pickup point in rain not advised about delay.
