Excellent tour of the penguins. The guides were very knowledgeable and give you tips on the best times to take photos. I would highly recommend this tour and is very well priced. Bonus was seeing lots of penguins.

When you see and hear the guides at work, you can understand why it is not a good idea to wander around as individuals. The penguins were exquisite to observe in their own environment and we thoroughly enjoyed the information provided by Max.

Whilst it was sooo cold in September/October, it did not ruin the experience we had on this tour. Penguins galore and even fluffy chicks. We were broken up into 3 groups which was great as we had a chance to get up close without 'harassing'...More
