Thanks so much for your great review Anna. Eliseo certainly knows many of the great photo opportunities on the island before you even get to the amazing penguin parade. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your tour with us and wish you safe travels ahead.

Really enjoyed this tour, the safari park, Phillips Island, the penguins and seeing some critters at night. The tour guide, Fred Garcarzyck, was great. Made you feel at home and he knew his stuff. One of my best tours in a month in Oz.

Thank you for taking the time to post such a positive review. Yes, the coastal views are quite spectacular on the island and quite a contrast to the scenery enjoyed along our western coast. Safe travels and hopefully see you again.

Thank you for reviewing our Phillip Island penguin tour Stuart. And yes it is a late finish at this time of the year because the penguins watches are controlled by our sunsets, which is why we try to include other interesting stops along the way. Look forward to having you on board again someday.
