A great sampler of what this amazing island has to offer! It was a very long day but our funny and informative drivers, both from Adelaide to the ferry, and on the island itself, kept the energy high. On the back of this, we are already thinking of booking a longer stay on the island once borders all open again. Would definitely recommend.

Great day on Kangaroo Island with excellent information from funny and knowledgeable Jen. It was a privilege to be amongst so much regenerating nature and in a place that does everything it can for the endangered animals and plants. Hearing about the bushfire devastation from the locals view was even more eye-opening and highlighted both how important tourism is to the island and how it can help put the community back on their feet to better help the wildlife. Just being on the island was a highlight!

This was one of my favourite tours. It was a long drive but it was worth it. All the drivers especially Garry, the tour guide in KI was full of sense of humour. He made the long driving less boring. I would highly recommend this tour to friends and family. I would happily go on this tour again too.
