Was an excellent trip from start till the end. Was kept entertained during the bus ride as our guide Sherif shared fun facts and good tips for the attractions. There was sufficient time for each attraction including brighton beach bathing boxes, moonlit sanctuary, cowes beach, the nobbies, and finally phillip islands!

The experience was wonderful from the moment we walked into reception. Friendly professional staff and Pilot. The flight was a lot calmer than we thought it would be, overall a wonderful experience would recommend to adults and kids. My boys are 9 year old twins and said it was soooo awesome Mum can we do it again :)

The tour was amasing! Phillip island, Moonit sanctuary were nice place. The staff was friendly!
