My Mum and I were picked up in the city at 11:50am. After an hour of picking up others, we then made our way to A PETROL STATION! The penguins do not come out until dusk, but we had several hours of stop offs at servos really. We had one stop off for 1hr at a zoo with a coffee

Hi Hayley, and thank you for taking the time to write us a review! We are sad to hear the day did not meet your expectations. The petrol station stops are naturally not part of our itinerary, but are essential for toilet breaks when travelling long distances. Regarding the Nobbies Centre, we hope you had a look around the exhibition providing interesting information of the Penguins and enjoyed the interactive Antarctic Journey. We are sorry to hear the weather was not on your side on the day. It is important to dress warmly, while waiting these little ocean swimmers to arrive back to shore. Thank you for pointing out the terror a flash light does to penguins! This is very important information and we hope everyone visiting the parade respects it. Regarding your drop off, we are sorry you missed your train. Our main drop off is at Holiday Inn on Flinders Lane, which is just a few minute walk from the Southern Cross Station - the main railway station of Melbourne. I hope my explanation provides with some additional insight into the make-up of our tour. We wish you safe travels and thanks again for your feedback! :)

We went out from our hotel one hour earlier, but unhappily the Google Maps did not help too much finding the address to meet the van. We were ten minutes late and the guide was in a horrible mood. Our ask for excuses were ignored, and in the whole trip he used an impossible

We sat and waited on a very cold seating area outside for around 45 minutes until the sun went down. People were told not to take pictures but as usual this was ignored in some cases, I would have liked to see these people told to leave the area. Extremely busy with mostly
