Everything went smoothly with minimum effort on our part. We really felt Roxy took all of the arrangements off our hands, making our trip so easy, allowing us to completely concentrate on enjoying the experience.

Travel Expert: Roxy

Sue’s extensive first-hand knowledge of Antarctica was so apparent from our first phone call. She was able to help us select the ideal route and vessel for our needs, and with her guidance we were able to see the emperor penguins!

Travel Expert: Sue

John is a true conversationalist and was a delight to deal with. In fact, we enjoyed hearing his stories about whale-watching in Baja California so much that we were quick to plan our trip with him and benefit from his first-hand knowledge.
