Thank you for your review.
I apologise for the mistakes made on this tour. Our family run business aims to give an authentic personal experience and I’m so sorry that your visit was not a success. I’m not sure you have seen but below is the message I sent to you through Viator on the evening after the tour trying to explain and apologise.
‘Hi Ricky, Firstly it was nice to briefly meet you today. Secondly I would like to apologise for the failed tour. As I'm sure you're aware there was a communication error where the landowners misread our email and as a result the gate was left locked. I'm really sorry you didn't get to see the penguins as we planned. If you would like to request a refund through viator of course we will accept. Also on the off chance you ever do get down to the Falklands again we would offer a free 2hr tour of Stanley and the beaches and penguins as an apology! I hope you have better luck on the rest of your journey and sorry again for the mistakes today. All the best, Dan’
There was a communication error which led to the failed access to the beach. Of course, you will be fully refunded as you can see from my previous message and if you do get down this way again, we would like to offer a free tour as an apology.
I’m also sorry that the guide was not suitable for you. Falklands Outdoors is a family run business and on busy days like this occasion, we may have two/three family guides working, Fran my mother, Peter my father and Kyle my brother all regularly guide trips. We like to offer more than just tourist information and want you to gain an understanding of the Falklands way of life, by doing so we offer personal trips by people who have lived here in the Falklands their whole lives and who are passionate about life here. Fran takes a lot of pride in her trips and really enjoys meeting people and although we were let down on this trip I’m sure you can vouch for how much she cared about Falklands Outdoors letting you all down.
This was an unfortunate experience, and we won’t make the same mistake again.
