First the best part: the penguins were amazing, and made the entire trip worthwhile. The bottom line, though, is that we wish we'd driven down there on our own. The minibus was very uncomfortable, especially for my tall husband. We were in the back two seats, right over the rear wheels, and the roads are bumpy. Also, that row doesn't get any flow from the air conditioners, which are overhead and blowing forwards. So when the rest of the group was too cold, we were still too warm. Half the group was a family with three children who were (understandably) very bored by the long drive, especially because they'd already done another tour that morning. Our driver, Ross, did a commendable job in difficult circumstances of trying to look after them and minimize the impact on the rest of the group. I was very impressed by him throughout the tour.
