Our tour guide Adrian was very informative about the surrounding areas of our tour destination as well as the route itself. I found him to be a wealth of information and would recommend him if one would like to take this destination journey. As for the penguins themselves, they are not only cute, but interesting to watch. i found though that the surrounding wildlife also seen was a joy to watch, especially the wallabies that inhabit this same area.
An outstanding attraction which allows the visitor to get very close to the penguins. WONDERFUL.
I love the penguin parade. This was my second time and while I paid the extra for the premium viewing it wasn't necessary as I would have seen as much from the other seats. Even so I still give it 5 stars as it is just amazing to watch this little bit of nature. I also liked being on the express tour so I didn't need to leave Melbourne until 4pm.
A fantastic day out. We had an extremely informative driver/guide who also helped us organise our helicopter flight over the island. We also had a couple of extra stops at the chocolate factory and a surfing beach. The visitor centre had great shops, with a busy but fast moving eatery. Highlight of course was getting to the beach and seeing the penguins come in from the sea and waddle up the beach. Only downside was that it was a totally moonless night so a bit hard to see them until they came out of the water. However, when we left the beach and walked up the path back to the visitor centre the penguins were right next to us heading to their burrows so there was plenty of opportunity to see them close up. Altogether a great tour which I'd definitely do again - but next time I'll make sure it's a full moon.
One of the most amazing things I've ever seen. Well worth the 4-hour round trip from Melbourne. Our bus driver, Steve, played Man From Snowy River on the way home, since by then, it was dark outside. He also showed us wallabies and geese on the protected part of Philip Island.
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..
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.
The tour was fantastic - bravo to Roger our driver on the day. He kept us informed and was entertaining as well. Would highly recommend this adventure to anyone who wants to see these cute little guys
Colin the bus driver was excellent, friendly and informative, highly recommend
Absolutely brilliant. Highly recommended. Small hiccup with ATT Kings regarding our free fish and chip meals included with our advance payment but the venue provided them anyway.
Even though it was raining, the Little Penguins were incredible to hear and see.
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.
Absolutely brilliant ! The highlight of our holiday, Would highly recommend going in the special viewing area, and the fish and chip supper was good too. The bus driver was particularly helpful dropping us near where we were staying rather than taking us back in to the city.
The trip was brilliant! It is great to see our native fauna thriving as it should. What an enjoyable experience- although it was somewhat chilly! This was remedied by a purchase at the shop and to my delight, some of the products were australian made. Extremely educational and a worthwhile visit.
Absolutely amazing, have never seen anything like it just a beautiful and privileged experience to watch these little fellows. Would highly recommend it to anyone. To think they foat around for hours way out deep until it is safe to come in then just wander on past all of us people without a care in the world is fantastic.
