A lot of fun, animal park was great and my wife thought this was one of the the best things we did while in Australia, it's a very unique experience and recommend the underground viewing option.

This tour is 100 stars out of 5. I and #39;ve been on it twice and it and #39;s still amazing. The Koala Observatory; spend the money to hold the koala and don and #39;t forget you can also pet the the dingos. They are so sweet. Spend the money and plan ahead to do the private ranger tour too.

An excellent tour. The driver/guide was both knowledgable and friendly. We had an amazing day meeting koalas wallabies, kangaroos etc and lastly the little penguins. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Wonderful experience! We did the upgrade to the ultimate penguin experience and we were glad we did - had a great view and our guide made sure we saw everything. An important note to be prepared for is that you can't take pictures on any of these tours as it can scare the penguins.

Was truly amazing. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Melbourne. Seeing all those little penguins coming out of the water and finding their way back to their burrow was like nothing I have ever seen in my life!!!

This was an amazing trip. Everything from the bus to the Penguins to the return trip. The bus driver recommended a restaurant that was one of the best we ate at during our trip. The Penguins are incredible. Making this a full day tout and seeing other animals up close was fantastic. Paying the extra money for the private guided viewing tour was well worth it. The ranger was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very helpful. We were in Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania and Fiji. This was the best tour we took. Absolutely fantastic!!!

A must while in Melbourne! Pay extra for the VIP package. It was worth it to spend time with the Rangers. It is great to see the conservation effort to save these little animals. They were the grande finale! Please don't take Photos! Have appreciation for all they are doing to save them. Buy a T-shirt or download the mobile app with photos. The local tour company was great and the driver, Paul very knowledgeable of the island and safe driver. He had to maneuver around a few unexpected obstacles in the road. He also knew the best times to visit local attractions avoiding the crowds. The only disappointment was the 1st stop at Maru Animal Park. It was a tourist trap and the animals did not appear to be in the best care. There are so many better places to visit the local animals that focus on conservation and take care of the animals. I used Viator in other cities and have always been happy with their service. Enjoy!

I loved the entire tour!!!!! It pays to upgrade to the top choice for the viewing platform of the penguins exiting the sea and returning to their burrows. We were the groups that was closest to them and able to follow them up the boardwalk. The small group of tourists was an extra added bonus as we were able to learn much about these little penguins from our ranger.

Also enjoyed visiting the sanctuary where the koalas, and kangaroos were.. We visited several areas in Australia and this sanctuary was the only on that had kangaroos. There were also a lot of wallabies that you could feed

It was a really good day! The zoo was cool, and the penguins parade is just awesome. We boked the ultimate option which worth it, you'll be staying on the beach with kind of a chair provided which is compfy, and also binocular so you can see the penguins well! They don't allow pictures during the pinguin parade but at least you enjoy the full time!!!
You may be able to do it by yourself, it's up to your motivation for the 2h drive from Melbourne one way.

This was fantastic! We had a personal ranger, headphones and binoculars. We sat up close on the beach and had a front row viewing. Then we followed then as they waddles to their burrows. It gets cold so bring a jacket. There were lots of people, but our private group was 9. Must do when in Australia!
