This was an excellent tour! We traveled in a coach bus with 48 people to a wildlife park where we got to feed kangaroos, take a picture with a koala, and see other cute animals. We stopped at various places along the way to Phillip Island and had the chance to see spectacular views of beach and the Nobbies. The penguin parade was amazing. We purchased the plus pass which included a free small drink, a guide book, and close-up seating. It was definitely worth paying the extra $20/person. Those little penguins are so cute! Our tour guide was very knowledeable and told us many stories along the way. He was also funny and friendly, and recommended a great fish and chips place for dinner. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Australia.
First time I am so close up to the penguins. we selected the plus package. its worth it really since we already went all the way there, might as well. Awesome experience, too bad no video / photography allowed. Understandable... definitely consider for the penguins :)
Meet at Federation square, no photography of penguins and late return (midnight) but excellent trip due to comfy transport, great stop offs (just beautiful), it's worth packing a picnic for the evening meal stop off (we ate on the beach) and take a jacket for the penguin parade as it can get chilly.
Definetely one of the greatest experiences of my life!! Phillip Island is an amazing place and see the penguins parade and wallabies spread everywhere is an opportunity of a life time. Must see!!!
We had Colin who is an awesome guide who made it a fun and fact filled tour ! A lifetime experience to see kangaroos, the Penguin parade, Koalas, and a Tasmanian Devil !
Long tour, but worth every penny if you are looking for tour options from Melbourne. Our driver was also the tour guide, he's funny, accommodating and not over the top. The penguin parade was amazing, cuteness overload!
Took this tour on my first day in Australia. How nice to meet the native animals right away! Although it was cold at the penguin parade, I was prepared so it didn't bother me much. This was a great tour!
The best trip I have ever done. Seeing the penguins in their natural environment was amazing and an experience of a lifetime. I could have watched the little penguins for ages. You get binoculars to see them coming up onto the beach and get really close to them at other viewing points.
Watching those little penguins come out of the water and walk up the beach is quite an experience. The extra cost of a ranger was worth the price. He was very informative and helpful. Anyone who loves animals and nature should not miss this experience.
Nothing quite like seeing those little penguins heading towards their burrows! Great day all around and totally worth the time. Day starts off in Maru with the koalas, and kangaroos. We payed the extra money for the chance to pet the koalas. So soft!
This is a highly educational and entertaining tour for all ages .
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Everyone was educated on penguins prior to waiting patiently to see their coming ashore.... this was sooo exciting as they came in at dusk.
Highly recommend this tour for all ages... I paid extra for better viewing,,,it was well worth it !!! The penguins came straight in to us !!!!
