It wasn't just the trip to the penguins, but the trip from start to finish that was made fantastic by the driver of our bus. He was a true gentleman and both of us were entertained from start to finish. We had plenty of time to wander around and do our own thing but not so much that we were waiting around. Highly recommend this trip.

With everything we saw over many days, this experience rates the highest. We took the sky box tour -- didn't last long enough for me. These tiny penguins stole my heart! AU has realized protection is needed to ensure they survive.

This tour definitely exceeded my expectations! Our guide, Roger, was so knowledgeable and made the entire trip exciting. I actually learned some interesting Australian history and appreciated his commentary. The Penguin Parade awesome - I definitely recommend upgrading to the Penguin Plus package to sit on the platform - you get a much better view of the penguins!

An excellent tour! The animal park visit was enjoyable, the Nobbies visit was awesome, dinner in Cowes followed by a walk on the waterfront was fun and the Penguin Parade is NOT to be missed. Our guide, Will, was knowledgeable, informative and fun! The spectacle of thousands of penguins emerging from the sea, crossing the beach and climbing the dunes will forever be etched in our memories. The upgrade to the penguin plus viewing was clearly worth the cost. Make sure you dress warmly-- even in November the evenings can be quite cool.

It was amazing seeing over 2000 penguins emerge from the sea in waves of about 200 at our time. I signed up for the ranger tour which gives you binoculars and narrative from the ranger. We were at a good angle to see the penguins cross the beach. We later moved to the path to see them closer up.

The undergroud viewing is fantastic, providing a good view of the penguins in a warm environment.

This was a great trip. Just the right amount of time not the whole day but we did a lot and saw a lot. I liked that we had time at the places we visited to leisurely check things out and didn't feel rushed. The guide Roger was great, knowledgeable, and helpful.

We did the guided tour and it was well worth it. We sat on the newly added platform which afforded us an up close and personal experience. Hundreds of penguins come out of the ocean after the sun goes down to return to their burrows. The penguins walked right by us and later we followed their path down the long roads they must walk. You cannot take photos but we purchased the video in the gift shop. All proceeds go to help care for the 32,000 penguins on Philip Island. We also saw 4 newly hatched chicks. Before we saw the penguin parade, we ate in town at an Italian restaurant on the corner which was excellent. There are other restaurants to choose from as well.

Hi. We very much enjoyed our trip to Phillip Island to see the little penguins. Our guide, Peter, was very informative providing great commentary along the way from the time we left Melbourne until we reached our destination. We are glad we decided to do a bus trip rather than hire a car and drive ourselves.
Thanks for a great experience.

The penguin viewing with priority seating was amazing. Staff very helpful. Our coach driver Richard from AAT Kings was very good, informative and told funny dad jokes. Kept everyone happy.

March of the Penguins! What experience could possibly exceed having 1000 penguins marching up the beach 3 to 4 ft. away from where you are seated? I got to hand feed a koala at our stop at the Maru sanctuary. Adrian was a great guide, and the tour was an excellent value. A memorable bucket list experience! I also liked the convenient pickup at my hotel.

Fantastic value for money trip. Penguins so cute and the guided option a must if you want to get up close. Guide was very knowledgeable. Dinner in Cowes at the end topped things off nicely. My son loved it.

Very interesting tour. No dinner was included but we stopped in a town to eat at the local restaurants. Bring cash for a meal.

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.
