My Antarctica trip was an unbelievable experience! I haven't stopped raving about it to my friends and promised anyone who wants to go to keep them company. It was so much more than I had imagined—the stunning varied scenery, and, most of all, the encounters with such a diversity of wildlife. The sight of the first penguin made everyone smile and that smile kept recurring throughout the trip. One cannot adequately describe one's feeling, one has to go and experience Antarctica.

I expected to see some penguins and seals. We saw 5 kinds of penguins, 5 kinds of seals, 3 kinds of whales and untold birds of kinds I never saw before. All of the above up close. I was not expecting the level of activity. We were in the zodiacs twice a day. The captain and crew brought us wonderful new adventures at every destination. I felt like they tried to exceed our expectations.

We had a great trip, beautiful weather the whole way; in fact, it was around 70 degrees F on S. Georgia Island, very unusual, but very acceptable! Plenty of various species of penguins and seals, some whales and porpoises. Good food, good wine choices, great service. Even a library on board!

I enjoyed the entire Antarctic cruise. This cruise had lectures given by doctorate-prepared scientists, biologists, geologists, and helped me recognize the creatures we were seeing and the terrain we were experiencing. These were sights that only a few people see and experience, and I was so fortunate to be one of those few. The service was excellent, and the staff and guides were all at their best in helping the passengers enjoy the time given. They were very knowledgeable and experienced, and thoroughly enjoyable.

I took this trip because I had a strong interest in the trip Shackleton took to South Georgia and in Elephant Island, where his men stayed. Seeing Stromness Bay, visiting Shackleton's grave at Grytvitken, seeing Elephant Island, Port Lockroy, the icebergs, Lemaire Channel, and all the penguins and elephant seals are memorable moments from my trip.

I've always dreamed of visiting all 7 continents and this trip was an opportunity to add one more. It certainly reached if not exceeded my expectations. The guides were all amazing, well informed, helpful, friendly. Most memorable parts were landing on the continent of Antarctica twice, seeing the humpback whales, visiting the whaling station on South Georgia Island, seeing the variety of sea ice/glaciers floats and the variety of animal life.

The level of service was amazing. Both the service crew and the naturalist guides went out of their way to make this an amazing trip. The level of expertise by the naturalist crew was very impressive. Because my husband and I are both teachers, the educational aspect of this trip was very important to us. The folks we talked with at ET, were so helpful and seem to really care about us and our needs. All questions were answered and the pre-trip information was very helpful. We worked mainly with Lorraine, and she was/is wonderful. I hope to be able to plan future trips through her.

My 75th birthday seemed a good excuse for a celebratory trip to the region! And my wife said, "Good idea!" Each day was a special delight - beyond my expectations. The most important aspects of a trip like this relate to the quality of the expert staff, and the important issue of security. The trip was A+ on both counts. The comfort factors, food, hotel staff, etc. are just frosting on the cake, and these were just fine. The trip exceeded my expectations - especially the educational part, and the attention to detail. The enthusiasm of the staff was infectious. And, oh, the weather was great.

I always wanted to see Antarctica. As a geomorphologist, seeing the glaciers and the impact that they have had on the surface was spectacular. ExpeditionTrips' service was designed to help me have a great trip and it worked. My expectations were high because I looked forward to taking this trip. Because of the weather and the seas, all my expectations were met and in many cases exceeded. We were both pleased with the service that we received and with the outcome of the trip. We would even do this one again at a different time of the year to see how the landscape changes as summer turns to fall.

I thought the trip was incredible, had a great time & enjoyed every minute. Our expedition leader Don was very good; he was knowledgeable, flexible & realistic in describing what we might expect from plans & timetables etc. I thought that he always had the interests of the group at the forefront of his thinking about where we went next. When the conditions looked changeable or challenging he was always ready with a workable alternative. Our landings on South Georgia were all interesting & varied in terms of history, geography & wildlife - we packed in as much as possible - 10 landings/zodiacs in 4 days. The food served by Brendan & Jo was good, hearty food, quite an intelligent & non-repetitive set of menus; I thoroughly looked forward to meal times each day. Your staff worked tirelessly, were very personable & were always ready to help the passengers & assist with a smile. Alan the naturalist was very knowledgeable & seemed to be everywhere spotting wildlife and Dave the historian was an absolute gem, what a life he's led, a true story teller. Finally the captain & crew were all exceptional & made everything happen seamlessly. What sounds like a high price for a trip, is in fact good value when you look at what goes into it. What's more, the trip attracted a great bunch of people & has provided me with some wonderful memories for years to come.

I was, personally, very pleased we booked with ExpeditionTrips. I think we were very fortunate (make that “extremely lucky”) to have found them and used them for our trip to Antarctica. I would use them again because I trust them – their staff has a wealth of knowledge. Everything was memorable/life changing in many ways. Just being “there” and experiencing it – the remoteness, wildlife, beauty of everything. Staff, guides and crew seemed well versed in everything. I think they all had everything under control and were very reliable and knowledgeable.

To be honest, I was quite apprehensive before starting this trip. I travel a lot, always independently, and I was hesitant to embark on an organized trip for 19 days. Fortunately, I found out that there were very friendly, interesting people among the passengers; on top of that, I found that the staff was truly great and open towards us, the passengers. Furthermore, the operation worked very well. So, it far exceeded my expectations.

One of the most special moments was our visit to the king penguin colony at Salisbury plain - it was an overwhelming, touching experience. It was a pleasure working with ExpeditionTrips. And yes, if I was considering a similar trip, I would definitely book with ET again!

Joy was simply a 'joy' to work with and I can't thank her enough for her efforts to make my trip as wonderful as it was. To say [this trip] exceeded all my expectations would not be praise enough. Knowing what I do now, this was easily the best travel experience I have ever had. No matter where I travel, I probably will never surpass the experience.

Absolutely a positive experience working with your office! I'd call you first for future travel. Where did you excel. JOY - That wondrous woman. I called her so many times with a multitude of questions. I'm sure at times, she would have loved to just say STOP but her courtesies, her kindnesses, her thoughtfulness, her obvious love of her position.

You excelled in your advice in guiding us and our friends in choosing this trip aboard the Clipper Adventurer. On the ship, we received a very high quality service from all staff, guides and crew who throughout were very efficient and enthusiastic. The efficiency in loading 100 passengers on and off the Zodiacs was a brilliant example.

I would use ExpeditionTrips.com because I value the judgments rendered by the company. Simply put, you know what you are talking about! The trip exceeded my expectations. It was extraordinary. It is what I call a 'painless learning experience!! It was the opportunity of a lifetime.

I would book with ExpeditionTrips.com if I planned to travel on an adventure like this one again! Everything fell into place: finding this type of expedition on the internet, getting the reservation through Ashton Palmer (who was extremely kind and helped to make the trip preparations easy), feeling that everything would work out well (and it did!).

ExpeditionTrips' service is excellent and Ashton was very helpful. It meant a lot to be able to talk with someone who had been there numerous times. It was a great expedition! The wildlife, particularly on South Georgia, is as spectacular as East Africa, and the scenic beauty equals any we've seen anywhere.

ExpeditionTrips' willingness to deal with passengers as individuals and see to our concerns was appreciated. A previous trip to Antarctica in February of 1998 had made it clear to me that the very vastness and wonder of the place was not to be comprehended. But in a small measure it could be seen and experienced.

We will certainly contact you if we plan any other trips of this sort, although it's unlikely that we'll be making quite such an ambitious trip for a while. We will also happily recommend you to any friends of ours who plan to travel, so do keep us informed of the trips you will be offering.

This was the experience of a lifetime, to visit the wildest and least visited place on the planet. You must have a sense of adventure to make this journey -- however, it will be an experience you will never forget.

I wanted to transmit my special thanks to the staff on Plancius who offered an outstanding service; it was a great trip, and I felt on Plancius as if I were at home. This was exactly the sort of catering and accommodations I needed; not too much luxury, but heartwarming.There was nothing to criticize.

We just got back from our trip on the Ortelius. WOW!!!! It was fantastic. Everyone on board was so friendly and helpful. We loved the food and of course the excursions. The expedition staff worked really hard to find all the animals and we saw everything! It was truly one of the best trips we have taken, we will recommend it to anyone. Thank you again for your help with everything.

I’m just back from an amazing adventure in Antarctica aboard the Plancius and would like to thank you for this unique opportunity. Comfortable cabins, very knowledgeable friendly staff that have the ability to make you feel home. I did enjoyed every second of my time onboard, offshore and the kayaking option did increase even more this close encounter with the majestic environment.

ExpeditionTrips excelled with information and accommodations and the customer service was great. The trip exceeded expectations. Antarctica is like another planet. The lectures on the boat made it even more relevant to be there and the accommodations were excellent. We got married there and the crew went WAY out of their way to make it special.
