    Our tour guide/driver was Eddy a native born Melbournian, he was absolutely fantastic. We really enjoyed seeing all the places he took us to plus the extra insider comments he added. We were also fortunate enough that he was again the guide for our trip to see the Fairy Penguins on Philip Island another unforgettable tour. Thank you very much!!!
