heard the peninsula was great but you must go all the way around in order to see anything. Otherwise, not worth the travel.

Puerto Madryn is a small, lovely waterfront city. The city was vibrant with many locals milling about enjoying the beautiful weather we had while in port. Many local artisans were selling their wares in a crafts market along the waterfront, performers dancing tango and many restaurants easily accessible from the port if you'd like to enjoy a local meal/snack. The city felt safe and locals seemed very friendly. Many of the tours take you on a long drive away from the port city. I participated in the Punta Tombo tour with a private vendor (not booked through the cruise ship): https://www.tripadvisor.com/AttractionProductReview-g312832-d19277694-Punta_Tombo_Tour_Walk_with_the_penguins-Puerto_Madryn_Province_of_Chubut_Patagonia.html. It followed the same exact itinerary with a slightly shorter time for transportation because it was a small vehicle and did not need to account for wasted time with a large group at bathroom stops and such. Punta Tombo is a beautiful nature reserve but isn't necessarily handicap accessible. A LONG walk up and navigating a steep hill is required. Some of the walk is along a boardwalk but after that it is along gravel with no walkway. Would not recommend for someone with mobility impairments.

Very little to do if not on an excursion. Excusions were very long and expensive.

The city itself was OK. We did an excursion to see the Magellenic penguins which was excellent, but long because of the rough terrain to get to the penguins.

Went and saw the area. Not enough time for the penguins.
