After our original Sunday afternoon tour was cancelled due to low numbers, my two kids and I were actually upgraded to a different tour with no fuss and excellent communication. The hotel pickup was EXACTLY on time and Adrian, our bus driver, was fantastic. His commentary was extensive and he gave us great insider tips once at Phillip Island. The penguins were adorable and such an amazing experience for all age groups. My only criticisms are a longer than necessary stop for dinner on the way home....it was almost longer at the town than at the penguins themselves....and tardy, inconsiderate fellow passengers that did not arrive at the bus when we were scheduled to go, consequently delaying us even more!
I thoroughly enjoyed my “direct” Philip Island Penguin tour. Richard who was the driver cum guide had a good sense of humour and also gave us the right tips for watching the penguins up and close. The bus was well maintained and is definitely a better choice then the small tours who claim to give a personal experience but use a small bus. Watching the tiny Penguins this close was an experience of life time. I would highly recommend this trip to all those who are short on time in Melbourne
it was short and sweet. hotel pickup was an extra bonus. coach driver was very friendly. i definitely recommend this trip
Great trip - could have done with a bit more time to watch the penguins heading to their burrows and grab some food/drink for us
Excellent tour guide/driver who gave all information that we needed to enable us to get good views etc.
Fab tour pick commentry on the way Penguins fantastic have done this tour before and would definately do again if ever in Melbourne .Highly Recommend
We had a great time! The driver was extremely knowledgeable, which was great for all the foreign tourists, and his tips about the actual viewing were 100% correct which meant that with a bit of patience we ended up almost on the beach with the penguins about 10 minutes after the first ones came ashore. I highly recommend the trip, despite the crowds everything was very well managed which actually made it a much better experience than I had assumed.
Fantastic evening, the stars of the show arrived on time and in huge numbers, and largely ignored their human audience.
5 stars because it was everything we wanted - plus a lovely bus driver. Great trip.
Awesome tour totally recommend it. Great to see the penguins in their natural environment.
Short of time but still want to see Penguins? This is the tour! Comfortable bus, friendly and knowledgeable driver and guide, amazing experience seeing the penguins! A must do for Melbourne!
The penguins were really sweet. Would recommend the Penguins Plus option as you can see the penguins much better than than with the general viewing.
Really enjoyed it. My tour was cancelled and I was put on this one as a substitute. Almost missed it because message left at hotel when I was on city tour. Turned out well.
This tour didnt happen so we were put onto another tour that visited a wildife park as well as penquins. Our Bus driver was fantastic! The wildlife park we found was boring as we have seen all before but to visitors we could tell they loved it. The penquins were wonderful. We wish tho we had known that you could upgrade your ticket and go the boardwalk. The bus drivers recommendation for dinner was perfect. My grandaughter and i had a lovely day
it was fantastic couldnt believe how close to the little penquins we were
Very well organized. Excellent and well informed driver!
Would definitely recommend it to friends!
Loved it. The trip was long but so worth it. All the chicks were out and such a delight to see. Will recommend the trip to all our friends.
