The Little Penguin Bus is one that really shouldn't be missed. The experience offered by Mac, the owner/driver/guide is one that my family and I wouldn't forget.
First off, I had some queries about the tour and emailed Mac about it. I was definitely pleasantly surprised to find a reply from him within just a couple of hours. Really prompt service. Throughout the few days prior to our tour, I was in touch with Mac and he was always very patient and detailed in his replies.
He picked is up from the nearest pick-up point from our hotel in St Kilda, just a couple of minutes walk and also arrived on time.
He was very engaging and knowledgeable, giving us snippets of information about iconic featurs along the route we travelled.
The scenery very along the way to Phillip Island was breathtaking as well! We snapped some really nice shots of the country-side, something city dwellers rarely get to see.
We had a little bit of extra time and so Mac took us on a little detour which we thought was more exciting than the Penguins itself. We had amazing views of the sea and also managed to spot some geese and wallabies.
He also gave us pointers to spot the penguins better which we found really useful as we opted for the cheaper tickets.
Definitely worth the money and you pay less (compared to the other more established tour agencies) for a more personalised and engaging experience! :)
