The whole trip was amazing and our driver, Edge, did everything to make it as special as possible. Was really cool to site the Koalas and Kangaroos in the sanctuary. The views from around Phillip Island were stunning. Then to finish the day off, the penguins were so cute. You could walk right next to them as they went to their burrows. Would highly recommend to anyone, and thank you Edge!

William was brilliant. He gave a fascinating and detailed commentary throughout the trip and spared no effort in ensuring everyone on the trip was involved and informed. The places we visited were simply awesome, and gave experiences that will never be forgotten. The geology was truly amazing! It was a long day but we enjoyed every minute.

Very interesting tour and fascinating encounters with Aussie animals! Our tour guide Sherif made the trip super enjoyable and informative. I highly recommend the tour and the guide! Thank you, Sherif!
