Luv this trip...it was magical to meet these little creature. I was astonished and awed by the experience, being so close to them. They are half size smaller than a hen and about the size of seagull.
Fantastic tour. Each stop was just the right length. Definitely one of the best tours I have ever been on.
Add this one to your bucket list, and visit in November when the babies are there if possible. They are SOOOOOOO cute! Do Not Miss this tour.
Outstanding all around. Great guide an the penguins are amazing. Dress warmly, even in summer!!
I recommend this highly
Wonderful trip . Our guide -Travis was fantastic. very knowledgable . A great guy . Really made the trip something special . As visitors fro the UK we loved the wildlife. We genuinely felt Go West organise and executed a fantastic day out . Thanks to all . We highly recommend this company
It was an excellent way to spend the day. Our guide was entertaining and the day was over before we realised it. I would definitely recommend this trip to Phillips island.
A great trip, We were able to get qite close to the adorable penguins.
A very friendly tour with a small group and a knowledgeable guide. Philip Island is beautiful and this tour takes you to places large coaches won't be able to get to. It's definitely worth upgrading to premium viewing to get a really close-up view of the penguins! :)
Many thanks to our driver who made this a very worthwhile trip. She was very well informed and kept us amused during the long drive to Phillip Island. Thank you Katie.
We thoroughly enjoyed this trip to Phillip Island. We liked the small bus - you don't waste time waiting for people to get on and off the bus. Our driver was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. We paid extra for the private ranger experience and were happy that we did. We sat in the front row and the penguins were very close to us. Over 2000 penguins came in that night. It was amazing!!!! We would definitely recomment this trip with this company.

It was a great tour! The chocolate factory is fine but not really "Australian". The winery was very nice. Beautiful setting and the cheese and wine were very good. The Koala Sanctuary was very nice but if you are expecting to get up close to a Koala, you won't here. Our driver took us for a drive through the "Nobbies" which is the gorgeous coast of Phillips Island. The Penguin experience was outstanding! We did the special tour with a park ranger - maxiumum of 10 people. We were given binoculars which were really needed if you want to see the penguins close up. We had reserved front row seating for the penguins coming out of the ocean. We then got to go the Penguin Plus area to see the penguins close up. All the while we had on headsets getting all kind of great info on the penguins. You should at least do penguin plus. Otherwise, you will be in a large grandstand and won't be able to see much due to distance and darkness. We spent 3 weeks in Australia and this was one of our favorite things.
