I travelled with my sons aged 11 and 13 who were initially reluctant participants. Our guide was great, very informative, entertaining and accommodating. The kids loved the Chocolate factory, which has interesting and interactive displays. All other aspects of the tour were enjoyable also, including the penguins. I chose this tour based on reviews I read, and I'm glad I did.

There were only 9 people on the Tour and the guide was fantastic. He talked us through the various stops and helped us to get the most out of the tour. Absolutely fantastic and would recommend to anyone.

The trip was small and cozy. It was as good as a private tour. The trip was relaxing and the guide, John, was very amusing. The Penguin Parade was of course the highlight. With the Penguin Plus, you get to see more.

Fantastic tour. Our guide was great and went out of his way to make it an enjoyable experience for everyone. This trip was one of the highlights of our vacation. Only comment is that we would have happily skipped the chocolate factory - but that was kept to a minimum.

A wonderful day out, chocolate factory, wine, koala bears and little tiny penguins. Everything we expected and more. Even a bit of inclement weather didn't spoil the day. Congratulations also to Dave...excellent host!

Our recent Phillip Island Penguin tour was excellent. Our tour guide, Katie was very informative with all the wildlife surrounding us. The penguins leaving the ocean and walking to their burrows, at dusk, was an amazing site. The tour included a visiting a chocolate factory and a koala conservatory. All excellent. I was glad that I chose the small group as we were able to get to know each other..

This tour is a great idea for people who are on a timed schedule but want to see as much as they can of Phillip Island. Its really convenient being collected and dropped back to your hotel.
An absolutely amazing fun filled day, great for all ages and at such a good price. I would advise people to book the penguin plus as you get more penguins in that area with a lot less people and a complimentary hot drink all for just $15.
The tour guides are ever so friendly and very helpful. The day has been planned out beautifully so you can see all of the island has to offer. A lovely experience.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see the main attractions of Phillip Island, with all transport and other fees included.
This made my holiday to Australia just that bit more special :o).

Excellent day. Lots of fun on bus and enjoyed all the attractions -chocolate factory,koala reserve ,winery and of course the penguins.Recommend the private ranger tour at the penguin reserve.Just magical sitting on the beach watching the penguins come in.

This was a fantastic trip! I opted for the ranger-led tour at the penguins and would definitely recommend it since not only did I learn a fair bit about the penguins, but he pointed out the mutton birds that had migrated south from Alaska and some of the southern hemisphere's constellations.

The tour was amazing especially the penguins. We do feel that the chocolate factory could be missed of as felt it was not very interesting unless you have kids. The winery was great and koala sanctuary. There should be more time spent at the end of evening watching penguins and not having to rush of and get bus . The penguins was a true experience that you would not forget.
