Def worth the trip to see the tiny penguins!
Great tour, guide was laid back and had just the right approach. Really enjoyed the wine tasting and the highlight of the Penguins wrap up warm if you go in the winter!
Very nice view in the Phillip Island, and tour guide was very nice and helpful
This was truly amazing. Watching the Penguins return to their burrows was a unique experience. Our driver was fun and very knowledgable. I would recommend this tour to anyone!!!!
It's pretty dark on the beach where the penguins come ashore. I think it was worth it to pay the extra money to get closer to where they come up, instead of the general viewing area. Then you walk along the boardwalk, where you can really see them very close. I loved this tour. Our tour guide was personable and friendly..
The combo tour package with Bunyip Tours was a great deal. The Great Ocean Road was a long drive, but it was beautiful even on a cold and windy August day. The stops along the way were also interesting include the Otway lighthouse. The Phillip Island tour was made more entertaining by a great guide Peter, who gave great information along the long drives. The stops at Moonlit Santuary to feed the tamed Kangaroos and Wallabies and see other native animals, Churchill Island farm to check out sheep shearing, Koala Conservation Center, Nobbies, and the Penguin center to see the small penguin return to their nest were all very fun. In addition, the tickets to SeaLife Aquarium and Skydeck were great bonuses. As a tourist with 3.5 days in Melbourne, this was a great deal and highly recommended.
Excellent tour package. Both the great ocean road and phillip island tours were great,we upgraded to vip on the phillip island penguin parade and it was well worth it. In the package we also got tickets for the aquarium and tower.
This tour was amazing and I highly recommend it. It was phenomenal to see these little penguins up close in their natural environment. If you are in Melbourne, it's a must see.
OMG. What a fantastic trip. Lunch was exceptional, koalas cute, wine and cheese tasting lovely and the cute penguins a joy. Absolutely wonderful tour. It was made so much better by our tour guide / driver / entertainer Katie. She was brilliant. Very informative, witty and knowledgeable.
Would recommend this tour to everyone.
Our first stop was Twelve Apostles in the morning, therere few tourists around there because we travelled the other way round. We could take as many photos as we wanted without anyone jumped into my pictures. At night, my friend and I shared a cozy and comfortable house with another four tourists. Dinner and breakfast were included and food was served by a winning café. Quiches, salad, all were delicious! Besides, our tour guide, Tom, shared a lot of history and knowledge to us. Hes dutiful and took care of us all the time.
The next day, another tour guide replaced the original one and he instructed us where we should sit in order to get a good spot for penguin parade. Hes absolutely right and I saw three groups of penguins walking from the shore to land.
Its an awesome experience! Two tour guides, the itinerary, food, accommodation, I definitely recommend this tour to my friends.
Nice coach for dive to penguins. Had fun feeding the Kangaroos on the way down. The penguins where amazing. Great trip. If you are ring in August dress warm, woolly hat, warm jacket.
2 fantastic tours. Thank you to Mary and Phillip, our guides for the days. They were the best.
Great service. The penguin parade was simply wonderful. We were located in a VIP seat.

Phenomenal experience of Australia! Both tours had breathtaking views on natural landmarks, so I was able to get plenty of gorgeous photos. The tour guide was delightful and very informative, I learned a lot about Australia from these tours. The wildlife in the area was spectacular and I was able to get fairly close-up look on a variety of species, including being able to feed some of them like the wallabies! The Phillip Island penguin parade was quite chilly, but it was by far worth it for the experience. Over the course of both days we were able to hit many spots within good timing. I've absolutely fallen in love with the state of Victoria, so much that hopefully I'll be back very soon! Thank you Viator for this lovely tour.
Excellent tour. The penguins are a real highlight. Recommended.
Even though it was raining, the Little Penguins were incredible to hear and see.
This tour was amazing!
The driver very very helpful and everything was absolutely perfect!
The view of the penguins especially from the deck with the rangers it's som it cannot be explained by words!
I consider this the highlight of my trip to Melbourne. These little creatures are amazing. I chose the Ultimate tour and am SO glad because I was literally right next to the penguins as they made their way up to the beach. The tour guide's commentary throughout the tour was very interesting and a wonderful accompaniment to the whole experience. Animal nature is incredible. I only wish I had had a bit more time to peruse the souvenir shop. Having stayed out with the penguins for as long as possible, the tour bus was ready to leave and I didn't get a chance to look around. Must go back!
Fabulous! Our driver Adrian, had a great sense of humour, was incredibly knowledgable and gave great information about the trip. The koala park was brilliant but don't give all your kangaroo feed away in the first part, wait for the big field of kangaroos!!! The Penguins were such adorably cute creatures - jumping off curbs and running over the sand in rafts. I would recommend the upgrade. Front row seats next to where the Penguins come to shore - amazing!!!
The guide Will was fun, witty, and a pleasure to have guide us around. The pace of the tour was perfect not too long or too short at any of the stops. Feeding and touching the animals was quite an experience and breath-taking views were worth it. The penguin parade was a little hard to see in the dark but seeing them come out of nowhere from the ocean was fun. It gets cold on the beach but all in all it was a wonderful tour and we fully enjoyed it. Thank you D
A special tour to the Penguins environmemt.We upgraded to the smaller viewing platform and enjoyed close observation Peter shared his knowledge of the area .We left feeling priviledged to have been part of the daily Penguin routine.
It was awesome! A great end to a great holiday.
Had a fantastic time on the helicopter ride, spending time with the kangaroos and the koalas and nothing beats seeing the penguins.
Thank you to the Driver Guide and AAT KIng for a fantastic time.
Excellent trip - Frank our tour guide was extremely informative. The Penguins were super cute and I would recommend buying the 'Plus' ticket.
Wow....we saw so much in 2 days! We did the Great Ocean Road on January 12th, our 1st day in Melbourne, and were blessed with wonderful sunny weather and a momma and baby koala bear sighting. Lots of time spent on the bus but I still managed to get a sunburn UNDER my t-shirt. Our 2nd day it rained most of the day as we toured Phillip island but even the rain didn't dampen our spirits as we toured this incredible place. Our guides for both tours were excellent as was the itinerary. Well done!
Really fun day out!Daniel was a great guide and made everything very interesting.He even lent my daughter his jacket when she was cold in the evening.The penguins were so sweet and really worth the wait.
