Organization was really fine, everything worked out and Tara was a very nice and funny guide. To watch the penguin parade was a great experience, too. So funny and cute to watch the little guys walking along the seaside to their homes. Maybe good to know: Photography is not allowed with the penguins, but at all other events it's no problem. Take warm clothes (windbreaker, scarf and cap) for the penguins, because in late evening/night it gets really cold with the wind at the beach. Not as good as expected the go-together with the Koalas. It's quite expensive to get in touch with them (~30 AUD) for a quick photo - and that's all. No option for stay longer close to them, maybe little feeding or just watch them close. And my photo wasn't that nice, too (couldn't see it before printed :\). So think about the Koala photo (you have to wait in queue -> time loss), but at all I would recommend the tour and do again :)
Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus the staff on board felt it might be one off the last they’d do for a while. That said the staff were excellent, the food great. If I get the chance to go back to Melbourne it’s one of the 1st things I’d do again.
It was touch and go whether we’d cruise because of the weather, but we did and it was awesome. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend. Perfect way to spend our anniversary.
Very enjoyable - long day though - got back around midnight. Highly recommend upgrading to at least the platform for viewing Penguins - saw many. Fed the Kangaroos and saw many native animals and the wild animal reserve.
Fantastic driver, really knowledgeable about the local areas and the stops were well timed and well worth it. Could have easily spent more time at all of the stops but this was a great way to see a bit of everything.
