We’ll leave after lunch and head straight down to Phillip Island. Once there we’ll visit the Koala Conservation Centre, explore Cowes leaving time for dinner and perhaps have a wander along the pier, Enjoy the fabulous cliff top boardwalks at the Nobbies and then head to the penguins. Simple and magical all at the same time!

You will travel in a luxury vehicle with panoramic windows, reclining seats and air conditioned comfort with your own private tour guide.

Here is what our guests have to say about taking a Phillip Island private tour:

James hosted a group of my guests to the Phillip Island. He is very accommodating to my guests’ needs and they did not hesitate to give James a thumbs up for his hospitality. Will definitely utilise James’ services for my future guests because I now know that they will be in good hands.

– Danny, Melbourne

My parents and I had a great time exploring Melbourne with the company of James and Bruce. The tours were very personalized with interesting places that the usual tour groups would not visit. We had an enjoyable and comfortable time on the tours.
