    The trip itself was great. Lots of penguins, sea lions, etc, and good narration. The problem was in contacting the correct agent on the morning of the trip. Lot's of agents at the marina wharf, without clear indication as to which was our point of contact.

    I tought to have booked a less touristic tour and was willing to pay some more for this reason...but there is no difference with the cheaper boots. They all have the same size and they all do the same. I also tought that because the tour started 20 minutes later then all the

    We did the Islas ballestas tour with Venturia and would definitely recommend it to other travelers. It’s a little more expensive than the other tours but worth it for the smaller groups, nicer dock and personal touches.
