Some of the advertized activities/stops were not actually implemented during the tour:
- no fur seals spotting
- not the slightest mention of ancient volcanoes
Another big disappointment: the use of cameras was prohibited during the penguins parade. This was surprising as our guide/driver had told us just to turn off the flash on our cameras/cells. If this is the rule, it should be acknowledged up front.
- the stop at the Maru Animal Park was another disappointment as this place is so clearly more interested in cashing in on tourism than in taking care of their animals. What you get to see up close are animals looking trapped and stressed out.
The one thing that was exciting was the spotting of kangaroos in the wild along the road. We did get good sightings.
