Great Ocean Road Small Group Eco Tour from Melbourne

Melbourne, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a phenomenal trip! I liked the small bus and our guide was fantastic - she had lots of information and great stories. We had lots of stops for picture taking which I really liked. The stops for lunch and dinner were really quick, but I guess they would have to be with the amount of ground we covered that day! We stopped for koala sightings in the wild and saw quite a few. The stop at the Maits Rest in Otway National Park was one of the most amazing sites...so green, so lush and trees and plants I had never seen before. BRING BUG SPRAY. I bought some when we were in town grabbing lunch and am so glad I did! The stops at the 12 Apostles were beautiful, and the helicopter ride was AWESOME!!!! I was the only one from my group who went on the helicopter, but I am so glad I did. It's a short ride, but the views of the coastline and the 12 Apostles are breathtaking! I got some amazing shots! The views of the Arch and London Bridge were fantastic too. The ride back to Melbourne was long, but we were given personal movie players, which passed the time. Loved this trip and would recommend.

Phillip Island: Penguins, Koalas and Kangaroos Day Tour from Melbourne

Melbourne, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a fabulous day! Our tour guide was very personable, knowledgeable and made us laugh all day. The visit to the farm was great fun to be able to feed and pet kangaroos...what a neat experience! The koala sanctuary was fantastic. The koalas were so close and there were so many of them! I had never seen so many in 1 place. The town of Cowes was a neat holiday town on the water. It was a nice place to have dinner, but it was a quick stop. We got a few minutes to see Nobbies. WOW...amazing scenery!!!!! We also saw some of the "Little Penguins" peeking out of their burrows near the boardwalk at Nobbies. Then it was off to the main event, "The Penguin Parade"! I signed up for the Private Penguin Experience and was very pleased. We were given headsets to hear the guide and special seats to sit on the beach with - we had front row seats, which was great because there were TONS of people there. After a few penguins came out of the water we went with the guide to the other side of the beach where the Penguins Plus area is - there were lots of penguins - so adorable. The guide was very informative and she helped those of us there with touring buses get back in time. There were so many people it would be easy to lose track of time and get stuck in the crowd. It was a long day - but one I won't soon forget. My pictures from this trip are amazing and I would recommend!
