The city tour was very interesting and informative. The Phillip Island tour unfortunately had a glitch as the bus broke down and wouldn't start at our first stop of the tour which caused some anxiety amongst a few passengers who were afraid they'd miss the penguin parade and wouldn't be able to reschedule because they were leaving the next day. Fortunately, after an hour delay they were able to resolve the problem but we missed the next stop on the tour. The bus driver was very apologetic but it certainly wasn't his fault for the mechanical problem. The rest of the trip went smoothly and we were able to enjoy the rest of the day. Even with the incident I would still highly recommend the tour.

City Tour: This is a combination of drive around and walking. It gives a quick snapshot of the city and as such, I would definitely recommend this to someone who doesn't have the time to explore the city on their own. We had Ian as the drive-around guide and he was very knowledgeable and funny. The walking part through the shopping arcades wasn't great, though - could've been better executed.

The Philip island tour is phenomenal and the little penguins walking by are just the sweetest things ever. The tour takes you to Churchill island and the Philip Island in the evening and the entire drive plus the island stops are very scenic and afford excellent photo ops.
Our tour guide was Deb and she is just the most fantastic tour guide I've had till date. Very knowledgeable, very involved and very forthcoming. Her narration through the evening was an absolute pleasure!

Special Tip:
1. The tour ends late at night - Back to city by 11 pm
2. Photography is not allowed at the penguin parade

There was so much to this tour than I thought. There were extra stops along way, included in price, this tour gave me seat in Peguin Plus at Phillip Island which is a bit better than General seats on the beach.

Wonderful tour! The Penguins were so cute and adorable. Our guides for both tours were informative and friendly. They made all the instructions and infiamruin very clear, and they were both helpful to make sure we got the most of the tour. Enjoyable and worth every penny!

you get to hit all of the little islands and the coach was clean and comfortable even had a toilet and water fountain seeing the little penquins was worth it. they were so cute they don't allow photo-flash or no flash-or video so just keep the memory of them in your mind. i was surprised by how fast they move. The koalas didn't do much, but koalas never do lol, but they were out. even spotted a few wallabies

Nice overview of the city with lots of time to walk and explore stop sites.
The Farm was a pleasant walk about stop- the sheep shearing demo was interesting.
5 portion -Park area with free roaming Wallabies and the Penguin burrows was exciting. The Penguins are so determined and they waddle close by viewing seating and paths. The Penguin parade starts at dusk and quite windy so it get chilly,January bring your jacket and be prepared for a late return to city. A good day with lots of variety.

Everything was great and as mentioned about tour.. we took both tours on same day... Our tour operators wad grey line,.. Tour operators were very friendly, puntual and welcoming... there is not much to enjoy in city tour but Philip island is good... its a bit windy and cold at philip island... little penguins are so cute.. its worth waiting to watch them emerge from sea...

Gordon, our guide, did a nice job of showing us the in-town sites despite the heavy traffic. Enjoyed the walking part of the tour through the fancy downtown malls.
The trip to Philip Island was well worth the longish bus ride. Guide Richard was outstanding with his enthusiasm and knowledge. The return of the little penguins was amazing. One should spent a little extra to get the more favorable seating for that event. Glad we decided to make the trip.

Morning Tour sufficient to see Melbournes Key sites. Trip to Phillip Island to see the Penquins a must but very long day getting back around midnight as penquyins don't appear until sunset.
Commentary by driver on city tour excellent.

The city tour was pretty boring because of the guide, i was falling asleep with his monotonous voice but the other parts were great- the cruise and the koala sanctuary

Melbourne tour was thorough and covered many places in the time. Lovely tour guides, especially taking us to some main arcades with great historical information. The penguin tour was wonderful experience, but made for a very long day, as back at my hotel near midnight.

I enjoyed the Philip Island Penguin Parade the most and the guide gave us clear instruction on how to enjoy it and she was also accurate in her predication on when the first batch of penguin will be arriving.
