This tour was everything we expected and more. Our driver was an incredible source of information and made sure that we were able to do everything planned and even more. This was an incredible experience that we will cherish for our life.

The experience of seeing the little Penguins was fantastic with a tour guide who knew what he was talking about. Really nice afternoon out! They even entertained with a film for the journey home.
The only thing that let the day down was AAKings who complicated our pick up from the hotel so I recommend confirming all of this before the day. We were given misleading and conflicting information.

The AAT Kings driver was fabulous, considering he had several uncooperative passengers. The biggest highlight was seeing the penguins at night. The best thing about the cattle stop was the devonshire cream biscuits and tea. koala conservatory was good. Tour of other sites on Penguin island good.

It was pleasing to see koalas in a natural habitat. It was delightful to see those tiny and cute panguis coming ashore and walking to their home.

This is a must do tour if your visiting MELBOURNE, you get out of the city to see australian animals in thier natural habitat, the KOALA experience was my favourite, we needed a little more time there, and the penguins are a not to be missed evening, dress warmly. The one and only time ypu'll get close to penguins, enjoy

From the time we started Pete the driver / courier expertly passed his knowlege onto us with an informed quiet gentleness which made one want to listen and learn. It was good to see the the eastern Kangaroos and feed them after seeing the western greys at Yanchap in Perth.The history of the area to Phillip Island was interesting with the nature reserve fasinating and of course the penguin experience was wonderful. A 'wet weather front came in' just as we were waiting for the Penguins so we were extreamly wet at the end of the night.Thank goodness we remembered our wet gear. It was a super experience which the rain did not spoil.

The star of the show was the penguins without a doubt. I would definitely recommend upgrading to the penguin plus viewing platform as it gives you a better view, Our tour guide Adrian was fantastic and extremely informative. The koalas were a bit disappointing and we have seen better in the wild. The kangaroos were very friendly and the cream tea was delicious.

We (I and my wife) booked the day tour to Philip Island through Viator. Booking through Viator was very easy and we didnt face any issues. We went to the Philip Island with the AAT Kings tours.
We had a wonderful time at the Island and saw lot of little penguins. Needless to say the whole experience was out of the world. The landscape on the way to Philip Island is very beautiful and the places we visited prior to reaching Philip Island, were awesome.
Our tour guide was very friendly, funny and provided clear commentary through out the tour.
Philip Island is a beautiful place to visit, especially if you have little ones. I would recommend this tour to each and every visitor who plan to visit Melbourne, Victoria.
