My friend and I enlisted this travel company to help us with our Antarctic Adventure .The company staff are very friendly and helpful! Their attention to detail and meeting your needs is their first priority. The trip was outstanding ; knowledgeable friendly staffs, assistance with trip insurance, suggested packing lists, tipping guides, and so much more. This is of no doubt one of the best Antarctica tour packages.
Mia, our tour planner professional and prompt in replying to our questions and provided very thorough information. We had a fantastic trip and loved every minute. We had an amazing experience with this travel company who delivered exceptional customer service from beginning to end. In the initial setup, Franny and Kevin patiently answered our questions to ensure that we had selected the perfect trip for us.
Our thrilling expedition Began with arrival in Punta Arenas, Chile. We explored the sprawling metropolis at the southern tip of Chilean Patagonia at the leisure. Then started from the airport on a retrofitted plane bound for King George Island of the South Shetland Islands. There we explored different research stations related to the nearly 15 countries on the island before boarding our lavish cruise ship. The small size of the ship allows for it to navigate through the narrow passages and break through the forming ice shelves closer to the Polar Circle. The coastlines of the islands and Antarctic peninsula changes daily due to the erratic weather, so the route we sailed through was unique to our cruise.
The staff on board the ship guided us along the bays, channels, and island ports with zodiac boats or lead an expedition on kayaks. The quick and quiet methods of travel allowed us to reach the shore or pass tabular icebergs without scaring the wildlife, which includes varieties of whales, penguins, seals, terms, and skuas. Thanks to Mia and Leisure for this wonderful trip.
