    Absolutely amazing, we had a really good guide, James, and the trip in held a lot more than we thought. We first went to a farm and got to see koalas, feed cattle, wombats, camels, llamas, cows, horses, deer, Emus, ponies, sheep, goats, rabbits and guinea pigs. Then we went to the koala center on Philip Island and finally the penguin center. Magical experience and all the way Our guide told James about things to think about, tips, a lot of history about places but also worldly history and other facts. Very exciting

    Very lovely trip with good tour guide

    All things are good except the coach was too small and full. It seems very congest and everyone have to pack tightly. Apart from coach arrangement, all things were good and the tour guide Peter was nice and reasonable. A very good tour with reasonable price and worth recommending to others.

    Little penguins are not to be missed!

    Knowledgeable tour guide provided information on the Australian plants and wild life. We were given plenty of time to enjoy the Little Penguins which were the highlight of the tour. We also thoroughly enjoyed getting up close and personal with the wildlife and kangaroos at Maru animal park.
