Excellent !

Pick Up on time, cool guide called Matthew that did an awesome Penguins trip in the bus & great tips to see Penguins avoiding waiting in cold - and we saw plenty ! Only thing is the Chocolate Factory that could be replaced by a 30min coastal walk. Overall fantastic experience !

Amazing tour experience in Phillip Island!

We had a great time during our tour in Brighton and in Phillip Island. We visited the Brighton Beach Boxes, and we had a great time taking photos with the colorful boxes along the beachside. We then proceeded to the Maru Koala & Animal Park, where we got to feed kangaroos! The visit to the Nobbies was also amazing — it is one of the most breathtaking views I’ve ever seen! The penguin parade was also very interesting; you get to see the penguins walk around the natural park and carry on with their daily routine. Our tour guide Jack was also excellent in customer assistance. Overall the tour was a great experience! We highly recommend this tour!
