Get your guide says one should show up at 8:30 before the tour at 9. This is bullshit. You have to be there at 8 at the latest. We arrived 8:20 and almost missed our tour because the company in Ushuaia has only one person attending to everything and the line moved insanely slow. It was terribly stressful and could have been avoided if Get your guide would update their information (actually they could also contact this Argentinian company and ask them to make a separate line for customers who already paid. The whole thing was ridiculous. The tour on the other hand was excellent.

Great trip. Guide spoke both Spanish and English. They made sure at the various sites everyone got a chance to take a good look and pictures. The photographers might be annoying to some people, but they help make sure everyone gets a chance to have a good picture, so they make it more inclusive for everyone.

Incredibly nice boat safari where you can see birds, seals, birds and penguins. We were lucky to see three penguin species, including king penguins. There was a lot of wind, but luckily we had the biggest catamaran which was steady on the sea.

Great navigation, we loved it, it meets expectations. The ship is positioned in different ways in all locations so that everyone has a good view

The penguins were so cute!!! Besides that the staff was very friendly and we spent ample time with the penguins
