The best tour i have ever been on! It was so much more than just the penguins and what i expected. Our tour guide Kelly INCREDIBLE has thought us so much about Australian wildlife and history! It was fascinating to listen to her! She came with us and made sure that we had the best best views of the koalas and then the penguins too! The best tour guide i have ever had! We saw so much and had great timings to beat the big crowds, got to feed kangaroos see koalas, the Brighton beach boxes and a bunch of wildlife and of course the penguins! Would 10/10 recommend the tour!

Beautiful day trip with a knowledgable and passionate guide. A full day tour so worth the money. Includes a stop to see some koala, kangaroos, Joeys etc which was great fun. Philip island was very cold and people were not dressed for this, so prepare for this! Doesn’t include dinner so involved a very fast turnaround stop for dinner which can be quite expensive. However would recommend and thoroughly enjoyed

Definitely enjoyed this trip. It was a chinese tour but David, our tour guide/driver, never made me feel left out. I’m so glad that he could speak english well. He gives me a brief explanation in english before every activity. The tour was worth it. I enjoyed puffing billy the most. And it was worth every penny to pay extra for the maru koala & animal park. Really had a fun day. Thank you soooo much :)

It was great day with lots of things to do! Jim was a great guide! Charging ports in the bus would have been a great addition as trips are longer!

It was great! Red was our tour guide and he was the best tour guide ever! I can only recommend this trip to everyone!
