Our guide is so knowledgeable about Phillip Island, the penguins and other wild lives. He is also very kind and patient. I accidentally lost my way when I came out from penguins habitat in the twilight, I called for help and he gave me directions and comforted me not to worry, everyone would wait for me to come back, which made me feel so warm. He also took my friend and I to the restaurant we told when we returned to Melbourne City. The penguins are exceedingly cute. Highly recommend this journey.
