    I’m extremely disappointed with Klook!! I have signed up and paid for 1day Healesville, puffing billy and penguin. When we were midpoint at the pickup to transfer to Phillip island, both my Son and my names were not on that list!! To make matters worse, that bus towards Phillip island was full and no way to include both of us!! My Son has waited whole day patiently to watch penguins. Can you imagine how disappointed he had been!!!! It was not Bunyip’s fault as the tour guides tried their best to resolve the matter on the spot. They planned to call a taxi for us to Phillip island, then arranged with another tour bus to take us back to Melbourne CBD. The thought of this coordination was daunting as it’s just myself and my 8 yo Son. So we decided to give up the penguin tour. I’m extremely upset with Klook. This is my first time and definitely last time booking with Klook!!

    Although the sanctuary trip was a little letdown as most of the animals were in hibernation. the puffing billy was extremely eye opening. Definite recommend! Also shoutout to the tour guide for being friendly.
