Fantastic tour of valdes

They collected us on time having pre-booked all online - very useful since we arrived late the night before. All was run in a fun and informative way throughout. the guide was very kind and fun throughout and certainly knows her stuff on the whales and other animals stopping to point them out. Thoroughly recommended excursion, don't worry about not seeing the whales we must have seen more than 20!

top whale encounter!

What a wonderful group of people - all very friendly and wanting to show you the whales as much as you want to see them. The boat is comfortable and there is plenty of room to see the whales. The guides speak English and Spanish. The captains are good at spotting the whales and being respectful of them. However, the young whales are very curious and we were extremely lucky to have one swim right to the boat and spray us a few times. Perfect journey along peninsula valdes with one stop in puerto piramides to enjoy the top part of the excursion watching whales! ultra cool.
