We had an awesome time with Estancia. The drive was very unique, quite bumpy and even scary, but our competent driver got us there without fail. It was amazing to be able to walk among the penguins and hear and smell them. What funny birds!...More

It is extremely bumpy, but it's well worth toughing it out. You can take some Dramamine if you're worried about motion sickness. This was one of the highlights of our trip. We also paid 110 GBP per person.
