My rating is poor because not only was this entire excursion awful, but the tour guide didn't act like a tour guide. First, the excursion out to Peninsula Valdes was just way too long and we didn't get to see anything. In fact, all of us on the bus stood around for an hour, while the tour guide and 2 passengers "watched" the elephant seals. Mind you, the elephant seals just looked like rocks because you were too far away to actually see anything. The fact that Peninsula Valdes was awful was not the tour company's fault, BUT we did get to go to Puerto Pyramides at the end and it was very pretty, but because we wasted so much time in the other areas (where there was nothing to see) we didn't get much time there. Also, the tour guide did not give specific times of when to be back on the van and did not keep the excursion moving. The fact that 8 people stood around for an hour to leave and she didn't notice was a problem. Then we would ask when we needed to be back onboard and she would say 10 minutes - an hour later we would leave. This was super frustrating. Finally, this tour was expensive and 100% not worth it. The Peninsula was not good at the time of year we went. We basically saw nothing and for 2.5 hour drive (1.5 on gravel), it was a horrible experience and I would not recommend it.

Booking online was fast and easy. We had a confirmation in minutes. Communication was direct and clear. Our driver picked us up at the pier and ushered us (two couples) to a small car. Although the fit was tight, we were rolling out to the penguin park before the rest of the tour buses were finished loading. Our driver stressed to us the importance of getting to the park quickly... And he was absolutely correct. About 45 minutes after we arrived the rest of the tour busses flooded in. We had the whole park to ourselves until then. It was magical! Additionally, our guide was knowledgeable, personable, and friendly. He kept a keen eye for other wildlife along the road. At one point, stopping and performing a U-turn so we could see small Emu-like birds. It was really fun! On the way back, he drove a few minutes out of the way to show us wild flamingos... And finally! He drove us past a local yarn store... Because he saw that we were knitting. An absolutely wonderful experience. I want to thank the entire staff at Babel Viajes for accommodating us on a last-minute tour.

I highly recommend Babel Viajes. I used this company for my group of 24 people. Communication was easy, they respond quickly to emails. The guide, Maria, is very accommodating and knowledgeable. I will use this company again in the future .

We booked the Peninsula Valdes tour last minute the night before as the majority of agencies had no English speaking spots available. We’re so glad we did! The tour is not exactly cheap but it seemed the going rate across all tour companies (we found it slightly cheaper but not by much). Our tour guide Alejandra was so lovely, knowledgable, passionate and funny. Jorge our driver was a smooth driver, reliable, friendly, polite and great at stopping the vehicle quickly when wildlife was nearby. We visited outside of whale season however we saw lots of different wildlife - my personal favourite was the sea lions. We had lots of time to enjoy all areas we visited and got lots of interesting information from our guide. Very enjoyable full day tour, recommended!
