Great tour. Some very good stops on the way to Phillip island. Amazing coastal views, Wildlife sanctuary was good Seeing the wallabies in the wild was so cool. The March of the penguins was something to see. Our tour guide Kurt was also awesome. Very informative, and funny.

Hi, and thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed the day and appreciated the parade of the tiny penguins. We will let JP know your kind words, and want to also thank you for mentioning the no photographs in your review, as it is important to not bother the penguins. We hope to see you again on our other tours! :)

I booked this tour as a solo traveller and it did not disappoint. Our guide Shannara was fantastic and upbeat. She made sure that we got the most out of our day and armed us with tips and tricks that we needed to know. I would definitely recommend for people to try this tour
