Wonderful day trip to the most iconic landscapes of Kangaroo Island. We were really happy with the group size of 10. It allowed for the tour to be much more flexible than the big bus operators and we had a few more photo stops. The snacks provided were also really great. Just be ware that most roads on the island are unsealed - so it is a bumpy ride at times.

A very honest snapshot of life on Kangaroo Island. The beauty of nature paralleled by man’s interference, which our guide Tony seemed very knowledgeable about. He went out of his way to show a good time and overall, give us a great experience 🤗

We had such a great day. it was so much cheaper than booking through the cruise line! we made so many great friends, we loved all of the locations! we got so much more for our money. The guide was amazing! definitely worth booking.
