la excursion es buena pero el viaje es largo. 2:30 hs desde Madryn. Sería bueno que incluyan la entrada en el costo. El lugar para comer en punta tombo es malo y caro.

For the return trip it took 5 hours. The guide was without a microphone and in the terminal part of the bus it was hard to hear because of the engine noise. Guide exclusively in English and Spanish, an explanation in Italian on printed paper would have been useful. Excessive cost for the quality of the service, inter alia through the hostel where we stayed a similar excursion with added visit to the site with sea elephants placed on the same route cost € 15 less.
