A great experience! Even if you are going to Antartica, this tour adds another dimension to your experience. And if you are not going to Antartica, this tour is a must.
Estancia Harberton was only ok. Wish had there had been signs in English for the trees, etc.
The tour is not too bad but nothing existing about.
Not as fascinating as one would expect. Once you get to the estancia, there's not much to do. Still worth checking out.
Excellent way to spend your day. Watching the penguins was very entertaining. The Estancia Harberton harbours a museum worth visiting. The guides were also very knowledgeable. As a bonus we got to see the snow at the end of the tour upon arriving into Ushuaia.
Good for seeing lots of sea bird life, but a long, uneventful boat ride. Est Harberton is interesting, particularly the marine mammal museum, which is very impressive.
The boat experience is ok-this lighthouse/island is really pretty small-even though it looks so much bigger in photos. Expected to be bigger considering ships that come through here. They do get you up close to island to take plenty of photos and then again when go to penguins. We had done another tour in Chile where we walked around with the penguins so this was a bit of a let down. Again, they do stay long enough for you to take photos-they are adorable. We took the extended tour of the Estancia Harberton and so glad we did. The Marine animal museum is an excellent display of the marine animals life size murals and their actual skeletons next to the paintings. Guide informative as well. We were two of 4 English speakers so had small group tour. One smart Argentine who knew English joined our group for the small group experience. There is a small restaraunt-food ok-but hit the spot and they work to serve you quickly so can get on with tour. Also-they take any currency. The tour of the Estancia was fascinating-how built, how came about, family still living working there. Again, guide was very informative, fun and knew excellent English. Can't think of her name--sorry-but young, funny and excellent. Ride back to Ushuaia is by bus-down gravel roads but scenic drive through forest, etc.
