We have experienced a wonderful day. Our guide Dario was great! We were picked up a few minutes walk from our hotel. Unfortunately, due to the traffic and traffic jams, we didn't have too much time at our first stop at the Moonlit Zoo, but we saw everything. After that it was on to a short stop with great views, and to Sommerlands Island Ward. In Cowes we had dinner and explored the area before heading to the Penguin Parade. A little tip: stay on the bridge instead of waiting for the little guys on the beach. They waddle under the bridge and you can see them better. All in all we were on the road for 11 hours, saw a lot and had fun! Clear recommendation! Jan&Frank

We are a group of tourists from 3 different countries, and we have formed a positive impression of Melbourne after this great experience. Our super friendly and professional guide, Elliott, provided great commentary about Phillip Island and Melbourne history, he went out of his way to accommodate us, and he was also very caring to everyone, especially the elderly. Thank you Elliott! The penguin parade was absolutely amazing, I will definitely recommend this day trip to my friends and family.

Whole day was great, we got picked up in a small minibus with air con! Martin was our driver he was very chatty, friendly & very knowledgeable so he was giving us information as we were driving from place to place. Was great to see the koalas and feed the wallabies in the sanctuary. Even though there was a fair bit of driving overall it didn’t feel like we were ever in the bus for too long. Seeing the penguins was a great experience. Would highly recommend this tour & Martin!

Such a great trip! Well worth the money! Dario the tour guide was lovely and made everyone’s experience brilliant. I would recommend to anyone, such a good way to see Phillip island and of course the penguins

Great experience! Kevin is an excellent tour guide!
