The activity is great. The activity provider, Argentina Vision, is quite professional. The guide was good. However, they are not communicative. You have to make sure they provide you a confirmation that they are gonna pick you up. They also told us to be ready by 9am and picked us up at 9:15. However, on GetYourGuide's app, the activity start time was 10am. We were lucky that we decided to confirm the schedule.

Nice tour! Punta Tombo is a beautiful place and definitely a recommendation when you're in Puerto Madryn. We had enough time to see everything. The tour guide gave interesting information and her English was good. The driver drove safe. Important to know (!); via GetYourGuide you can choose two times to start the tour (we chose 7 AM), but the tour starts at 8!

The excursion to watch the Magellan penguins in their natural habitat is ineffable.
