Great tour! The bus arrived exactly on time and everything went very smooth throughout the day. Great commentary by Scott who handled everything with ease. I will definitely be using Go West Tours again. This was probably my favorite tour I've been on and we really got to see a lot. Penguins were really great to see and I had a really fun day.

It was a long day but seeing those little penguins come out of the sea together and find their homes ashore was amazing. We had wonderful seats for this event. The Moonlit Sanctuary was included and the kangaroos and koalas were fun to see up close. There was a short show too that was very informative.

We stopped at Moonlit sanctuary where we got to feed lots of Wallabies and Kangaroos before going to Phillip Island to see the Penguin march, which was amazing to see. About 1,300 penguins came to shore that night and were very cute to see. I think the Guided Ranger Tour is a must, the ranger explained a lot of interesting facts about the whole thing and we got to sit in a secluded place where we had an awesome view of the penguins returning to their homes.

This is one of the best trips we have ever done. Second time for us and it didn't disappoint. A must for anyone coming to Melbourne.

Such an incredible experience! It was incredible just waiting for the penguins to come out from the ocean and watch them walk to their burrows. The Nobbies and Seal rocks were also truly breathtaking! Kaitlyn from GoWest Tours is such an amazing guide as well. Very organized. I highly recommend for families with kids.

Memorable Trip. A friendly and Informative tour guide by the same of Ms.Leah, I guess.

Seeing the penguins at Penguin Island was very fun. We lucked out as there were at least a couple of hundred penguins. With the underground option they are only 12 inches or so from your face so you get a really close up look rather than being in the general sitting outside. The Moonlit Sanctuary had some interesting animals and feeding the kangaroos and wallabies was certainly a highlight. Unfortunately you don't get much time there. Overall the tour should be longer so you have more time to spend at the both the Moonlit Sanctuary and at Penguin Island, especially with it being such a short day light wise. Go West, the tour company basically just drives you from place to place. If you are looking for more of a tour/commentary you would probably be disappointed.
