Thank you Sentir. The tour to see the penguins at Punta Tombo was well organized, professional, and very interesting. Our guide, Diego, spoke excellent English and was friendly and very knowledgeable. The vehicle was comfortable and the driver was good too. Even the boxed

Our guide was Berto, driver Pedro. Looked for the blue balloon, and our small group of 8 was on our way. 2.5hrs there, long road, with 20km of dirt & gravel. The landscape is sparse (except for the giant Dinosaur in the middle of nowheresville and the wind turbines). The Rookery

We highly recommend Sentir Patagonia and their excursion to Punta Tombo to see the Magellanic penguins--and it was far more reasonably priced than the ship tour! The blue balloons that they were holding made it easy to spot them as we disembarked. Even though they had to wait

Sentir Patagonia Travel is trustful. I ordered its shore excursion that should be operated on Jen. 1, 2020, but unfortunately Norwegian cancelled calling to the port with a reason nobody would believe. However Sentir Patagonia Travel keeps its promise and refunded my prepaid

Vehicle was unsafe - seatbelts needed to be repaired before we left the port - this took about a half hour When we got to the rookery, we were given 30 minutes to have a look see, although guide told us that was enough time, never got half way before having to drive back

Response from Diego A, Owner at Cruise Shore Excursion Punta Tombo Tour - Puerto Madryn - Patagonia - Argentina
Responded Jan. 1, 2020
Dear passenger, first I would like to apologize for any inconvenience we may caused. the problem you mentioned with the seatbelt, was the belt was in between 2 seats, stoked, not broken, but doesn't make the vehicle unsafe, when the driver was aware of that problem, he found the way to solve the problem, and actually he did it, all our vehicles have every 6 months an full inspection, and that give us the permit to work. I spoke with the tour guide this morning, and she told that everyone made the full path on that day. please feel free to contact me by email, and I will provide you a compensation for this situation. again my sincerely apologize. kind regards Diego Allende (Sentir Patagonia Travel - owner)

I have never given a one star review before. However the lack of response from this company required this rating.
