Nice variety of activities
ProfessorMelody

The tour itself was really great! Got to do a variety of activities and we did not feel rushed anywhere. The penguin viewing was fun, but we actually saw more closely the penguins when we walked back to the visitor center and saw them scurrying back to their borrows for the night. The reason for the loss of one star was some girls on the tour who, after the first stop, basically "stole" our seats on the bus, relegating us to the back.

Penguine parade a delight

This was a very good tour, just a small group which is ideal when doing trips. We had a problem with the pick up as they only go to certain hotels, so we had to catch a taxi from and to our hotel, which just adds to the cost of the trip. We were at the Bayview on the park hotel, which is about a 50 minute walk to the centre all the pick ups seemed to be either for the centre or the other side, maybe you could look at having a drop off nearer to this area of hotels as coming home at 11.30 at night nobody wants to be walking home? The guide was good , did feel a little rushed at times and was a bit erratic with her driving. The wildlife centre was good as was the farm, the tea and cakes was a nice break and enjoyed by all, could maybe have stayed here (farm) a little longer. The views of the sea were amazing we nearly didn't get to see the pyramid rock and its great views as the driver wasn't sure she wanted to go, fortunately she changed her mind!!! The penguins were brilliant when you get to the boardwalk and it splits to main viewing and special viewing hang round the gate to special viewing as once the penguins start to arrive they open this gate to all and this is where the penguins walk up to their nests. If you want to see them come out of the sea you do need to go to the beach.

Kelly L, our guide was wonderful. The whole day trip was so well thought & well organized. Everyone knew exactly what time to meet & what to see because she had a notice board in the car to communicate with us ahead of time. After a tiring hot day we had tea & cakes as refreshment. It was an enjoyable trip.
