A well organized tour and the highlight was seeing the Penguins. It was molting season so the birds were not as pretty as envisioned.

We booked our own excursion for about half of what the shipped charged. Best port of the cruise. Saw a great many penguins close up and experienced a Land Rover ride through bogs, trenches, Streep slopes etc which was great fun.

Walked among the penquin colonies. Went to 2nd beach to see other species of them and their nests (vacated) up close. Wonderful day.

Very informative tour, but not much to see. Guide was informative but her information was slow and a bit boring.

The Falklands are really worth visiting. Tiny population. Harsh, natural conditions, but pretty cool and nice pubs too. Very British!

This excursion was a highlight. The gentoo penguins were everywhere. There were also a few Magellanic penguins. The penguins had no fear of humans.

We booked a private vehicle online and were met at the pier by Wayne's tours. It was a Land rover that was shared with another couple who we had never met. They were Americans who had never heard of the Falklands War. It made for an uncomfortable journey as we were tightly squeezed into the back. The roads are so bad that it would be worth paying extra to be in a vehicle for 2. We were driven 1.5 hours to Bertha's Beach to see the colonies of Gentoo penguins and a pair of Kings that were on the beach moulting. It was incredible. We then went back to Stanley and Gypsy Cove for the Magellanic penguins that nest in burrows. Our driver was a native Falklander and was very entertaining. She was a 30 year old mum when the Argentinian's invaded and was able to give us a first hand account. We were dropped off in town and did a bit of shopping. The town is tiny and the cruise ships triple the population. Everything was crowded and the queue to get back to the tenders was quite long. Celebrity kept it moving though and we were soon back on the ship. Read Less

We went by 4x4's to Joe Kelly's farm. The penguins were up close and personal. Had a fabulous day well worth the price.

Outstanding private tour!!!! Highly, highly recommend! Estancia Excursions, email Nyree Make a lifetime memory by visitng the penguins at Volunteer Point. Over 3000 King penguins, thousands of Gentoos and Magellanics. This is the most offroad, offroad trip ever. 2 hours from Stanley each way: 1/2 hr on paved road, then gravel, then over an hour on a peat bog jouncing from pothole to pothole. The range rovers were up to it and so were we! And through it all our guide kept teaching us everything about the Falkland Islands, and the penguins. The penguins walked where they wanted, sometimes right next to you or across your path. We were 1-2 feet from them most of the time. Lunch packets were provided as was a little tour of Stanley and time enough for a short walk through town. Can’t say enough about how spectacular this was! Space is limited, book early! Read Less

We had to access the dock by tender, but when we arrived there the information centre was metres away. The staff there were so friendly and gave us maps for a walk to Gypsy Cove. The 14km round trip was well worth is for lovely views, penguin sightings and stretching our legs after 6 days on board. As we walked the streets in town, gaining an understanding of the impact of the Falklands War (1982) was very interesting Read Less

My favourite port. Delighted to have good weather and land (apparently only 50% of passengers manage to due to poor weather conditions). Lovely, organised place and everything in walking distance. Very nice museum which was free for Zaandam passengers on the day. Good selection of shops (mostly touristy things) but did have a Co-op with British things to buy and we bought a picnic. Went everywhere including the Memorial wood which was quiet and moving. Were told they only accepted FI pounds but this wasn't correct and they took all typed of money and our UK debit cards.
