Very many thanks for all the information sent about our recent expedition to Antarctica. I've just come back from a couple of weeks away (again!)) and have had a great time downloading and reading everything. Although I kept my own 'log' the expedition team's (courtesy of Gilbo's words and pictures) was so detailed I was amazed to read just how much we had done and seen, and learnt. The whole team deserves a medal so please pass on my thanks to them for a magnificent adventure. Despite the seasickness I'd gladly do it all again. I would also like to say how very impressed I was with everyone on the team, their passion for the environment, their knowledge and skill at passing it on, their friendliness and enthusiasm - none of us could have failed to have found the expedition a unique journey of a lifetime. The whole expedition was so well organised I couldn't fault a thing, and would definitely consider a G Adventures holiday again - and from reading the brochure, there could be quite a few!

Just returned from a G Adventures-tour on the MS Explorer to the Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica and had the time of my life. Never saw such abundant wildlife and incredible, unforgettable scenery. Paradise. Pure magic! The comfort and security and excellent service and catering provided by crew and household staff added greatly to the enjoyment of this trip. Compliments also for expedition leader Aaron and his team for their enthusiasm, their lectures, their time and their continuous efforts to show us as much of the wildlife and scenery as possible under all weather conditions. One could not wish for better guides to help discover this unbelievable, wonderful world! I would advise anyone who is so privileged to be able to travel to this area, to go there with G Adventures.
