From the time I stepped aboard the ship everything went perfectly. Having traveled for a good part of my 71 years this was one of the best holidays I've had.

An unforgettable trip among water, ice and snow. We had excellent weather, a great expedition team and saw fantastic amounts of wildlife. I could not have asked for more.

This was the MOST amazing trip of my life! (and I have traveled a lot) The experience of seeing this vastly untouched continent is something I won't ever forget. The penguins were adorable and the staff was excellent in giving the passengers a full and knowledgeable trip. Highly recommended!!!

I recently returned from your Antarctic Classic adventure aboard the “little red ship” Explorer. This was an absolutely wonderful experience, and one I would repeat today if the possibility existed. Everything was geared to the experience of the passengers. The ship was smoothly and expertly run, both by the ship’s company and the hotel staff, allowing us, the passengers, to concentrate completely on the adventure. The G Adventures staff of leaders and various experts on birds, mammals, geology, and Antarctic history made the experience the more memorable by helping us understand what we were seeing and experiencing, as the trip progressed. The selection of places to visit covered a wide range of possibilities, and was obviously chosen with some careful thought. Bathing in the surf at Deception Island capped the whole thing off. The international makeup of the passengers provided for interesting conversations and other viewpoints on our planet Earth. Add to that the wonderful, almost mystical presence and beauty of Antarctica itself, and one could not but help be somewhat awed by the entire experience. I would recommend your company to anyone who has a yen to do some exploring of this earth, no matter where or when.

It was an amazing adventure, we felt like Antarctic explorers but with luxury at all levels. The scenery & wildlife was out of this world. The beer & BBQ lunch in the sun on the rear deck surrounded by ice & animals was a highlight!
