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!

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.

The trip was amazing! We got to see kangaroos, wallabies and penguins in the wild and interest with koalas and more at a wildlife sanctuary. Mehmet was great - super funny and helpful! He also gave us mats to sit on for the penguin parade which was a must! I’d definitely recommend :)
