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.
