you get to hit all of the little islands and the coach was clean and comfortable even had a toilet and water fountain seeing the little penquins was worth it. they were so cute they don't allow photo-flash or no flash-or video so just keep the memory of them in your mind. i was surprised by how fast they move. The koalas didn't do much, but koalas never do lol, but they were out. even spotted a few wallabies

Nice overview of the city with lots of time to walk and explore stop sites.
The Farm was a pleasant walk about stop- the sheep shearing demo was interesting.
5 portion -Park area with free roaming Wallabies and the Penguin burrows was exciting. The Penguins are so determined and they waddle close by viewing seating and paths. The Penguin parade starts at dusk and quite windy so it get chilly,January bring your jacket and be prepared for a late return to city. A good day with lots of variety.

Everything was great and as mentioned about tour.. we took both tours on same day... Our tour operators wad grey line,.. Tour operators were very friendly, puntual and welcoming... there is not much to enjoy in city tour but Philip island is good... its a bit windy and cold at philip island... little penguins are so cute.. its worth waiting to watch them emerge from sea...

Gordon, our guide, did a nice job of showing us the in-town sites despite the heavy traffic. Enjoyed the walking part of the tour through the fancy downtown malls.
The trip to Philip Island was well worth the longish bus ride. Guide Richard was outstanding with his enthusiasm and knowledge. The return of the little penguins was amazing. One should spent a little extra to get the more favorable seating for that event. Glad we decided to make the trip.

Morning Tour sufficient to see Melbournes Key sites. Trip to Phillip Island to see the Penquins a must but very long day getting back around midnight as penquyins don't appear until sunset.
Commentary by driver on city tour excellent.

I enjoyed the Philip Island Penguin Parade the most and the guide gave us clear instruction on how to enjoy it and she was also accurate in her predication on when the first batch of penguin will be arriving.

Very friendly and knowledgeable driver. Interesting tour beforehand to Churchill Island to see working dogs and sheep-shearing.
Well-organized Penguin Parade except for the idiots and their kids at the front who immediately stood up when the penguins started to come out of the sea, blocking views. The best way to witness the Parade is on the Boardwalk.

The City Sight Seeing Tour of Melbourne was just about right. The sights of Melbourne being showcased methodically and with an element of pride is an act worth emulating. The sights were impressive indeed and the guide's knowledge (tinged with wry humor) was welcome too. Driving across the small city of Melbourne (at least the drive seemed so) with so many sights to see within that area makes you feel "wow, how well have these Aussies nurtured and maintained their heritage?"

The Penguin Parade trip in the evening however was a different cup of tea, somewhere in the stratosphere. The beautiful and cute penguins, the stop-over in between to see the adorable koalas and the whole feeling of heart-warming experience in the midst of the chilly winds leaves you wanting for more. The penguins strutting across from the ocean almost like clock-work (at the designated time) and the cute way in which they make their presence felt is something which one should not miss.

The things worth improving here are: the wi-fi in the coach (was absent despite being promised that it would be on) and a little bit more assertiveness in managing the penguin parade audience.

The bus was comfortable and warm compared to the climate outside. The information told was very educational and the whole trip was extremely enjoyable. We loved it :).

It was well organised. The drivers were very knowledgable and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We saw everything that was expected and the finale of the penguin parade was brilliant. We would recommend these trips to everyone!

The penguin parade was a disappointment. It was dark by the time the little penquins started coming ashore and we could not see them very well. The city tour and the Phillip Island tour was well worth it however. I would do this again.

The city sightseeing is not exiting.
The Philips Island was good.

My honest feedback on the above - Melbourne super saver city sightseeing trip was just ordinary. All the trip did was to take us around a lot of streets in and around Melbourne. The only notable place was at a park where Thomas Cook house was located. The next best place was the Chinese market. The problem is that not sufficient time is given to do shopping hence we decided to cancel the phillip island penguin parade and continued with our shopping
