What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

Seeing the vast expanse of sea ice and hearing the M/S Expedition breaking through it was incredible. We stood out on deck mesmerised for 3 hours, unable to take our eyes off the ice and fabulous blue icebergs that surrounded us. I really felt like one of the early explorers that our Expedition team of experts had told us about. The moment that we spotted an Emperor Penguin on the ice ahead of us is a memory that will stay with me forever.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

The expedition leader worked closely with the ship's captain to ensure that we had the best experience possible, and it was reassuring the see them plotting our next move when we visited the bridge. The M/S Expedition crew were fantastic, and we felt like we were staying in a first class hotel with excellent service and a very knowledgeable team of experts who helped us to gain a real understanding and passion for the Antarctic.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Pay the extra to take you as far into the Antarctic as possible, it is well worth it as this is where the excitement really starts. I feel so privileged to have ventured into the Antarctic Circle and seen these incredible sights.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

Explore put together a brilliant tailormade package for us which enabled us to make the most of our time in Buenos Aires. The hotels were well situated in the city centre so we were able to walk to most of the main tourist sites, and, unlike others who had booked flights themselves, we had good flight times and the same friendly taxi driver meeting and greeting us each time.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

Too many highlights to mention,but I'll try. The service on the ship was excellent with the ships crew and expedition staff who were all very helpful and enthusiastic to share their knowledge of the region. The amazing landscapes took your breath away and of course the penguins were fascinating. The days on board ship were very well organised with loads of information and interesting lectures. Cabins very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Meals very good with lots of choice to suit all preferences. One of my best trips ever.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Not applicable , but expedition crew and leaders were brilliant.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Be prepared to take loads of photo's. Internet access on board is very slow and expensive. The boots supplied on-board are "wellies" so take thick socks to make walking easier.
