Antarctica Tours - Adventure Life Testimonials and Reviews

one

Classic W Trek

Siew Ng (Pure Patagonia and Antarctica Cruise, Oct 2015)

I highly recommend Adventure Life! Count me as a repeat customer.

MV Plancius: Antarctic Peninsula

Jeff Pender (Antarctic Peninsula on the MV Plancius, Feb 2016)

Enjoyed our trip on the MV Plancius very much. Antarctica is truly unbelievable and I would recommend it to anyone. This is a rather rustic and small ship, so the seas can be very rough across the Drake Passage, but it is well worth it to be on a small ship with more time ashore!

Patagonia Wildlife Safari

Ailene Markham (Argentina + Patagonia + Antarctica Peninsula on the Akademik Loffe, Feb 2016)

Jessica and Veronika were always responsive and supportive with our trip plans. Even in the middle of the trip, we e-mailed with a problem and they called us at the hotel in Ushuaia to help us straighten things out. I would never consider taking a complicated trip like this without having support and would highly recommend Adventure-Life.

Akademik Ioffe: Antarctic Peninsula Adventure

Ocean Nova Air Cruises: Classic Antarctica Air Cruise

Wyatt Harrington (Classic Antarctica Air Cruise on Ocean Nova Air Cruises, Feb 2016)

Excellent staff for a difficult task. Our trekking guide Nico was great. Thanks to all the staff that helped us have an amazing adventure and vacation.

Ocean Nova Air Cruises: Antarctic Small Ship Expedition

Lee Hoffman (Antarctic Small Ship Expedition on Ocean Nova Air Cruises, Mar 2016)

South Shetlands/Antarctica was an out-of-this-world experience and both the ship and the excursion staff were excellent. It's a lot of time on a ship to get there and back, but well worth it.

Marivi Magan (Patagonia and Antarctica Cruise, Nov 2015)

Excellent time as a family with teenagers--entertaining and educational.

Freya Santos (Antarctica Cruise on the Ocean Nova, Nov 2015)

The best trip I've had so far. Not only is it because of the dramatic nature landscape and wildlife, but the people too (passengers and crew).

Siew Ng (Pure Patagonia and Antarctica Cruise, Oct 2015)

Argentina Custom

Jennifer Eskin (Antarctica on the Polar Pioneer, Mar 2016)

Franny Friesz of Adventure Life and Lucas Studer of Exito were tremendously helpful. Franny responded immediately to all my inquiries with professionalism and with a welcome sense of humor. Lucas provided with important perspective by offering the wisest options for flight connections. The drivers Adventure Life secured for me in Buenos Aires and Ushuaia provided perfect service. In both cities the drivers greeted with a clear sign and with good cheer. They drove safely, the cars were comfortable, and the drivers offered pleasant and interesting information about their cities. My hotel in Ushuaia, Hotel de los Andes, was comfortable and conveniently located. And, though I had informed Franny and Lucas that I required gluten free food on the airplanes and on the ship, I was both surprised and impressed to find that the hotel was ready with gluten free food for me, too. In addition, I was impressed that Adventure Life’s local agent, Jose Galotti of Kallpa Tour, called me at my hotel to check on me, and to make sure I knew where and when to board the ship. Finally, I was also reassured by Adventure Life’s emails that arrived the day before I departed. I felt as if Franny were right there with me seeing me off. Adventure Life seems to appreciate and anticipate the stresses that a traveler can feel when planning a trip to Antarctica, and I am grateful for ... Read All

Ocean Diamond: Antarctic Explorer: Discovering the 7th Continent

Akademik Sergey Vavilov: Christmas in Antarctica

KC Chan (Christmas in Antarctica on the Akademik Sergey Vavilov, Dec 2015)

Sea Explorer: Falklands, South Georgia, & Antarctica via Puerto Madryn

David Gale (Falklands, South Georgia, & Antarctica on the Sea Explorer, Jan 2016)

Extremely well-planned and executed voyage. Amazing guides. Kayaking among the icebergs. Serendipitous weather in the Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica. Except for some rock and rolling in a few tempestuous seas, the expedition was everything we could imagine and more.

Sea Spirit (PO): Antarctica, Falkland Islands, & South Georgia: Ushuaia Roundtrip

Helena Kageyama (Antarctica and Falklands Cruise on the Sea Spirit, Oct 2015)

Excellent trip to Antarctica with Sea Spirit ship and Poseidon's expedition team. They went beyond to give us an once life time experience!

MV Plancius: Antarctic Peninsula with South Shetlands

Jan Ma (Antarctic Peninsula with South Shetlands on the MV Plancius, Dec 2015)

The food was absolutely incredible for an expedition trip. Really appreciate the selection, as well as fresh fruits everyday.

Ocean Endeavour (QU): Antarctic Explorer: Discovering the 7th Continent

Walter Pavlik (Antarctic Explorer: Discovering the 7th Continent on the Ocean Endeavour, Feb 2016)

I really enjoyed the whole experience. It is my 7th continent and was well worth the long flight.

Huimin Shen (Antarctic Explorer: Discovering the 7th Continent on the Ocean Endeavor, Jan 2016)

It was well organized and the services are wonderful!

Ocean Endeavour (QU): Antarctic Explorer: Discovering the 7th Continent

Shariann Lewitt (Antarctic Explorer: Discovering the 7th Continent on the Ocean Endeavour (QU), Jan 2016)

I would recommend Ocean Endeavour to anyone interested in travel to a Polar region. We loved the ship. Our quarters were extremely comfortable and the ship as a whole was elegant and had many different and pleasant spaces. We thoroughly enjoyed the cuisine aboard, and the service by the hotel staff was fabulous, but the best part was the Expedition Team. I loved the lectures; no one dumbed down the science (and I teach at MIT, so my standards for high-level science are pretty exacting). The experts were constantly available, always ready to answer questions and offer insights into the Antarctic environment, and their love for this region just radiated. Of course, all the arrangements made by Adventure Life were flawless--but this is not our first Adventure Life trip and it won't be our last! So we're kind of spoiled and expect that. :-)
