I have sent email to several agencies but no luck yet with a tour.
We are there just for the day and don't want to go all the way to Punto Tombo for the penguins (seeing them later in our cruise) because of back problems with long bus rides.
All that has been offered is a trip to the penguins and then the Palentology Museum (have had 3 offers for this).
This is what my message has been - am I unrealistic?
We are not interested in the drive to Punto Tombo due to back backs. However, here are some ideas of things we are interested in - no particular order:
Drive down to "Punta Loma Reserve,” to see the permanent colony of sea lions and the nesting site of cormorants.
Drive to Estancia San Guillermo (or another Patagonian Ranch), to see sheep and maybe have a snack (like lamb empanadas) there?
Visit the “Ecocentro Puerto Madryn” Museum.
Visit Trelew and/or Gaiman as we are interested in the traditions that the Welsh ancestors brought from the old world. After touring the town, enjoy a traditional tea. If possible we would enjoy hearing a local Welsh choir during teatime - (or anywhere)
Is this too much to do? We have from 9:00 to 6:00 - of course we need to be back to the ship by 5:00PM.
Your suggestions and comments are eagerly awaited!"
