This was an amazing tour and it was my second time and I enjoyed it even more as we were closer to the penguins this time. We paid to be closer but it was well worth it. They are so cute. This was a smaller tour and very enjoyable. Highly recommend this tour.
Philip our guide and driver was fantastic! All aorund exceelent tour and journey!
The penguin parade was awesome. We took the ranger guided tour and were glad we did. The information provided, and a chance to see the penguins meet and greet each other outside their burrows was fascinating.
Wonderful experience. The highlight of course being the penguins. Very comfortable transport and knowledgeable guide and driver. Would highly recommend.
Our tour guide made this trip!!! He was knowledgeable and friendly. Name of Dane if anyone wants to know. My only criticism is that there was too much packed into the day. One less stop would have made the day more relaxed for me.
Very nice day in the countryside. We loved the stops - lunch in the trout farm where we also learned a little about Australia plants , Koala recovery center where we could photograph koalas in their natural environment high on eucalyptus tops get a good lense and the Penguins Discovery Center. What was promised was delivered and the tour size was small - 24 people.
This is a must-do tour...long day tho as the penguins dont come ashore until dusk and then the drive back is long..definitely should go for the Group eco tour..takes you to the front line on the sand with binoculars to watch the parade..fantastic..don't miss
I would highly recommend the guided ranger tour for the penguin parade. Personally I would have skipped the dinner stop in Cowes to spend more time at the site of the penguin parade. This is food at the visitors center and well as interesting information on the penguins as well as the gift shop.
Great tour, really worth to join. The driver same person as the guide is experienced and professional. He made much fun to the tour. Lunch is good and delicious. The white and red wine as well as cheese tasting also impressed me very much. Of course, the little penguins are the highlight. They are very cute and lovely! Be reminded that to bring a thick cloth when awaiting to see the Penguin Parade at the viewing platform. Otherwise, you will be freeze!
Great trip, Guide was very friendly and professional. I enjoy it very much
Great day would highly recommend upgrading to the guided ranger tour. Dane was a top guide and it was the perfect mixture of wildlife, scenery, food and walking
c'est un tour très bien organiser avec un guide super qui prenait vraiment le temps de répondre avec gentillesse à toutes vos questions.
What a great tour. Tour guide was terrific - very knowledgeable. Enjoyed the entire tour, but of course the best part was the Penguin parade. Bought the guided Ranger tour and it was well worth it. Sat directly on the beach in front of everyone else. The Penguins came out of the water directly up to us and walked around. Came within a few feet. With out the Ranger tour you sit in bleachers back off the sand, and although you can still see the penguins, the best way to get close is the Ranger tour.
The whole trip was very well managed and we all saw plenty of wildlife before arriving at the penguin viewing area.
Best tour ever!!! Nicky was adorable, with a great sense of humor. She entertained us all the time. We had a lunch on the trout and bush tucker farm, where Nicky made us a tour and explained about local plants - it was very interesting. We visited a very nice small winery where we tasted wines and cheeses - it was very good. The Phillip island is spectacular, especially Nobbies views. The only time I saw a koala that was not sleeping, was in this tour. And of course, the best conclusion of this tour is a penguins parade - the cutest thing I ever saw.
As I said - the BEST tour ever!
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!
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.
It was a very informative and well planned trip. I couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. Nicky from Go West was fabulous!
