Loved this tour! The stop at the animal park gave us an opportunity to pet koalas and feed kangaroos before visiting the Penguin Parade. If you can, upgrade to the "Guided Penguin Plus" tour. We learned so much from the guide and he really enhanced our experience with viewing the Penguins. Also you are much closer, you get binoculars for... More

Edward, the tour guide and bus driver was so informative!! I learned so much about, Australia, marsupials, and the fairy penguins of Philip Island. The drive from Melbourne to the island, was so scenic, hills, farmland, and beautiful coast line. The ocean breeze came from Antarctica! As Edward mentioned to all of us on tour, we were closers to Antarctica... More

We departed Melbourne around 1 PM and headed for Phillip Island to see the penguins come in from the sea at dusk. Our first stop was the Maru Koala and Animal park which had an interesting collection of native Australian animals. We made several other short stops along the way to Phillip Island. After a stop for dinner (dinner was... More

Great choice for our afternoon/evening trip to see the gorgeous Little Penguin parade on Phillip Island. At this time of year there were not as many penguins as they were moulting but we still had a great experience. We paid for the upgraded individual Ranger tour and it was well worth it as we learnt so much more about these... More

Pick up from the hotel was 5 mins early and after collecting others, from different hotels, there was a quick transfer to our coach which set off from Melbourne at 8am. There were only 25 of us on the coach and the lady driver was excellent with her history, humour and driving. This trip did not include going to Great... More

A must to do trip, great sights, the coach driver was so knowledgeable, friendly & helpful. We had frequent stops so we wern't sitting on coach for too long, the 12 Apostles were amazing as was Loch Ard Gorge & London Bridge. Got some amazing photos. Thanks for a memorable trip.

My wife and I went on the AAT Kings Magnificent Melbourne City Sights tour in Feb 2017. This was an excellent overview of Melbourne. We had done a walking tour the day before, but this showed us things that we would not have gotten to without this tour.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
