What can I possibly say about this trip? It was amazing, stunning, energizing, and humbling all at the same time. My fellow passengers and I frequently talked about how we could adequately describe our experiences. We all agreed that nothing we said, and no photograph we took, could really capture the experience. Some of my favorite memories involved the sound. The sound of ice breaking against the bow of the Akademik Ioffe as we sailed through a seemingly endless sound filled with icebergs, small ice flows, and humongous tabular ice. The only sounds we heard were the ice breaking, wind blowing, birds, and one seal that decided to try to "intimidate" our ship. Thank you so much for helping me select the perfect voyage for me. I have taken some amazing vacations in the past, but none of them compare to this voyage — and it's going to be hard to try and top it in the future!
I would have to say that my experience with Freestyle Adventure Travel was wonderful! They were extremely efficient and provided me with a cruise to Antarctica where I had just about given up hope of even going to the continent. Sarah and Gabi did go the extra mile on this one and I will forever be grateful!
We had a truly amazing experience. Our expectations were high and every aspect of the trip exceeded them. Thank you again for your excellent service, your immediate responses to my enquiries was appreciated and your advice.
It was the trip of a lifetime that I'll never forget. The Expedition Team was incredible. The ship crew, food, and service were outstanding. The Falklands, South Georgia, and Peninsula gave us perfect weather and amazing viewing of wildlife and landscapes. The whole thing was incredible.
My trip to Antarctica was both everything and nothing that I expected. It was beautiful, educational, and full of wildlife - and surprisingly the up-close interaction with such a raw, mysterious place will have a lasting impact on me.
The whole experience was fantastic – something to remember the rest of my life. Don’t miss it if you are able to go, that is my advice to everyone! A lifetime experience! If you love animals – just go!

I already got the antarctica deals for one year before leaving. The service was perfect! When I wrote when we wanted to go, we got a few offers, and we found the perfect one for us! And we got an amazing trip!
Having now visited 25 countries and every other continent, NOTHING compares to this trip. The whole experience is other-wordly and the vibe when you sit back and realize where you are is the best feeling ever. Everything from the food, to the room, to the activities far exceeded our expectations and we cannot thank you Sarah & Gabe enough for making this happen. We will without doubt be repeat customers and can't wait to book you Freestyle again.

Your assistance in purchasing my ticket to Antarctica was fantastic, and I could not have gone without your help. We were truly blessed - fantastic weather, a smooth Drake passage crossing, beautiful clear starry nights. The team was knowledgeable, passionate and very helpful. It was an experience I will never forget!
The expedition was just great. The ship and staff could hardly have been better, and the talks by expedition staff were very interesting. We especially liked that there was a photographer on hand to give advice. The trip was a highlight! Just do it!
It was a very impressive and unforgettable trip. I did not expect to see so much, to have such a wonderful time with passengers, staff and even crew. The ship was like a big family; the staff and the crew were excellent and helpful all the time. The food was delicious. I highly recommend Freestyle Adventure Travel, and one day I’ll come back for another trip.
