We could see lots of cute animals in a day and driver was very nice, thank you.
This tour was amazing!
The driver very very helpful and everything was absolutely perfect!
The view of the penguins especially from the deck with the rangers it's som it cannot be explained by words!
I consider this the highlight of my trip to Melbourne. These little creatures are amazing. I chose the Ultimate tour and am SO glad because I was literally right next to the penguins as they made their way up to the beach. The tour guide's commentary throughout the tour was very interesting and a wonderful accompaniment to the whole experience. Animal nature is incredible. I only wish I had had a bit more time to peruse the souvenir shop. Having stayed out with the penguins for as long as possible, the tour bus was ready to leave and I didn't get a chance to look around. Must go back!
Fabulous! Our driver Adrian, had a great sense of humour, was incredibly knowledgable and gave great information about the trip. The koala park was brilliant but don't give all your kangaroo feed away in the first part, wait for the big field of kangaroos!!! The Penguins were such adorably cute creatures - jumping off curbs and running over the sand in rafts. I would recommend the upgrade. Front row seats next to where the Penguins come to shore - amazing!!!
Henry was our driver and he was fantastic. He gave us a great tour and was very entertaining. The tour was well organized and ran on time. We'd recommend it! Thanks.
The guide Will was fun, witty, and a pleasure to have guide us around. The pace of the tour was perfect not too long or too short at any of the stops. Feeding and touching the animals was quite an experience and breath-taking views were worth it. The penguin parade was a little hard to see in the dark but seeing them come out of nowhere from the ocean was fun. It gets cold on the beach but all in all it was a wonderful tour and we fully enjoyed it. Thank you D
Fantastic trip and the coach driver was brilliant and full of information about our visit.
It was awesome! A great end to a great holiday.
Had a fantastic time on the helicopter ride, spending time with the kangaroos and the koalas and nothing beats seeing the penguins.
Thank you to the Driver Guide and AAT KIng for a fantastic time.
Our coach driver Carey sp? took good care of us and was a great tour guide. I would recommend bringing a blanket or a warm windbreaker for when you're outside waiting for the penguins.
The tour was fantastic and we'll organised and the tour guide was so knowledgeable giving loads of information along the way.
Tour guide was great and showed us way more than the brochure listed. Penguins were sooooo cute
This trip was worth the trip to Australia alone. The drive/guide Adrian was generous and inspired, and looked after his guests in royal style. The coach was comfortable and convenient. But the site of the penguins is unlike anything else I have ever seen or will see. It's nature and the world at its absolutely wonderful.
I really enjoyed the tour! Had a great, informative, and funny tour guide and the stops were both beautiful and entertaining.
Collin , our DRIVER was the Best part of the Tour, after our Driver pinguins and Philip island was amazing :)
I took so many picture, our Driver he really enjoyed to drive us aroud the Island, i did not like too much the first koala sanctuary where we stopped because it was too small, but is ok, actually i saw for the first time a kangaroo whit a small kangaro inside :) so cool... soo lucky :)
Absolutely a tour to do. if i come back to melbourne i will book it again to repeat the same experience!!!!
I very much liked the little penguins, the visit to see cute koalas and kangaroos, and the beautiful sceneries.
Tour was splendid! With a little extra fee you can get to pet a koala. Included you can feed wallabies. At the end of the day can walk along side by side with penguins as they make their way to their burrows. All were unique experiences.Also like to thank our tour guide Edward for being so nice.
We took the whole tour, meaning we left Melbourne in the afternoon and finished this around 11:00 p.m. back in the city. The finish time varies depending on the season, with the summer it's later. This tour is great to start off our visit in Melbourne. I had seen this more than 15 years ago but this time it didn't disappoint. I will definitely recommend the guided ranger option as you can stroll along the Penguin+ boardwalk to see many penguins even when you only saw a few on the shore. Sometimes the numbers you can see on the shore vary from 40 to 400 from night to night.
The tour was absolutely marvelous and I highly recommend it.
Driver-guide was absolutely wonderful. He provided a lot of interesting information, was very attentive to tourists needs and went out of his way to make the excursion the most pleasurable experience. The guide had a very nice disposition and talked about Australia with love and pride which was very touching and meaningful.
I enjoyed my tours with AAT Kings and brought home the best memories of Australia.
The guides of AAT Kings are the credit to the tourist industry. I am very grateful to them and wish them all the best in the New 2015 Year.
This was so much fun. It was very cold but the ranger was very kind and gave me a blanket. Loved seeing the little penguins walk their journey at night. But seeing all the wildlife was great during the day.
