Two great days! Except the Sunday morning: we've been picked up from the hostel then dropt to a bus stop in the middle of nowhere to wait our group. We had to wait 1h... At least we could have been dropt to a cafe !!

Excellent tour, enjoyed both days. Highlights were the tour guide Natalie's knowledegable insights into the area, visiting the moonlit sanctuary and koala conservation centre. The penguin parade didn't let us down either. Stayed overnight at YHA - clean, tidy, breakfast basic. The next day was Wilson's Promontory - spectacular views and stunning beaches. Only criticism was no stop on the way back to Melbourne - it was 3 hour journey, could have benefited from a break. Tip: if doing the 2 day tour as we did, take enough food for snacks as only lunch on day 1 and breakfast day 2 was included.

There was quite a nice balance...

There was quite a nice balance between the two days. On the first day, we did touristy things like visiting a heritage farm, the nobbies, and the penguin parade. It was fairly tame and I think it's good for those travelling with family. On the second day, we did a lot of trekking and sight seeing at Wilsons Promontory. This was the one that was physically strenuous. I would say it's perfect for those who are physically fit. Not an easy trek, but the views more than justify the effort!

Excellent and a very well priced...

Excellent and a very well priced tour that enables tourist to access really diverse and interesting parts of Victoria. Don't expect to see heaps of wildlife as depends on weather and season but those I did see were a delight. Tour guides knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The overnight if at YHA on Philip Island - don't expect others on the day tour to stay overnight as the two tours are treated as separate day tours so I had two different groups of people to get to know over the two days. Breakfast at hostel is basic - suggest bring your own fruit juice as only supply cereal, white bread, margarine and milk. I would have liked to have seen some grain bread in the freezer rather than cardboard like white bread. Otherwise, I toroughly enjoyed my two day.
