Booked 3 private tours for GOR, Yarra Valley and Philip Island. Dianne was very patient with us before and during the tour. She always gave us something extra out of the itinerary. She even left a message with our hotel to remind us the meeting time and venue. She is very knowledgeable and we chatted throughout the trips. Plus, she always suggest to us which route to go or we will be heading to avoid the jams and crowds. she will check back with us when they are too much bumpy or curvy roads to make sure we are feeling alright. Really enjoyed the trips! will definitely book again if i am there!

Amazing experience for children and adults. It was great to see so many penguins come up from the sea to find their nests.

Kirsty is professional, knowledgeable, a wonderful guide who loved sharing her knowledge. She really gave us a unforgettable tour of the parks and the penguin parade. The small van makes all the difference too, definitely a better option than a big bus tour. Great attention to detail, I recommend her 100%!

I found Kirsty and her business online, searching for someone to show my family, including my 8 year old daughter, who is using wheelchair, around Phillip Island. From the start I felt in great hands. There was a bit of organising to do since we were staying in Melbourne. Kirsty was flexible and provided me with all the right information so we could plan our day perfectly, within our budget and requirements. We took public transport to Phillip Island (my daughter loves to ride the bus and train) and had Kristy (and her husband, yes! how great is that!) take us back to our accommodation in Melbourne at the end of the day/night. Kirsty showed up with this amazing, wheelchair accessible van, water for all of us and a picnic (for later). What I loved most was that Kristy just fitted herself into my family (mum, grandma and my 8 year old daughter). The tour was a great balance between experiencing the beautiful nature and having some incredible fun activities for my daughter (and us). We watched the Pelicans feed, visited the Chocolate Factory and A Maze'n Things (see separate review) and of course watched the Penguin Parade. Kirsty knows the Island well which helped when we diverted from one of the planned activities and still kept our scheduled visit to the Penguin Parade and having some of the best Fish & Chips ever for dinner before. Kirsty has my highest recommendation. She is full of knowleged if you visit the Island as a Nature Lover: and she can simply have fun with you and your group giving you a little background info on the things you want to know.
