What a great day. Pick-up from the hotel was on time. Our driver, Paul, gave an excellent commentary along the way to Phillip island, explained the beach boxes and the wildlife. At the penguins our tour leader supplied us with blankets and soft seating to enjoy the last and fantastic part of the day. Thanks Paul

Fab tour, Paul was very knowledgable and gave the tour a personal touch! The trip to wildlife park was great. Would definitely recommend paying the bit extra for the guided ranger inside Phillip island.
Escape Adventures Rocks!

Four of - Husband and wife with two grown children took EscapeAdventures Penguins with Beach Boxes including the Ranger Tour on January 23, 2020. Paul was fantastic, the tour was top notch, and his van and his local knowledge was outstanding. I highly recommend this tour, to anyone interested in taking a day out to see the Penguin Parade and other Australian wildlife up close and personal.

This was a good time; Frazier was our tour guide. Our 1st stop was at the Brighton Beach Houses; they were very colorful. After lunch we stopped at the Phillip Island Wildlife Park; This was great , we met up with a 2nd tour and their guide Paul led us through the wildlife park. There were many different animals there, but the highlight was hand feeding the kangaroos!!! It was also great seeing so many Tasmanian Devils out, and the were all running around too. We drove around the island and saw lots of Wallabies in the wild and then we got to the penguin parade. We got the ranger guided tour and I would recommend that to anyone. We had a ranger take us around and give us information and then we went to a different viewing area. It seemed that we had many more penguins come ashore near us than the main viewing area. Our ranger was pointing out the penguin "rafts" long before we ever noticed them, so we knew exactly where to look for them when to did come on shore. As walking back, we were next to the penguin highway and had lots of penguins walking back to their burrows next to us. We even saw a 4 - 5 week old penguin chick. They took great care of us providing us with umbrellas when it was raining at the wildlife park and they gave us thick coats and seat cushions for the penguin parade. Frazier made sure everyone was taken care of at each stop Even though it was top secret, we would like to thank Paul for the Vanilla Slice Cake he bought for several people at our lunch stop...It was really good and appreciated.
