Two days with them is minimum time on the island. A better plan would be to spend three days there, although I'm not sure if they have such a choice. Lots of bucolic and striking scenery, koalas, roos, wallabies, good food and wines. With Mary on day two we happened on some newly shorn sheep, so she asked if we... More

Little Sahara - KI's own little desert - be prepared to get sand everywhere ! We hired a sand board and toboggan and had a blast. Also included in cost a 1.5 hour quad bike safari - we paid $240 for three - a bargain for a full afternoon's entertainment doing activities we've never done before !

We booked the two day, overnight tour to Kangaroo Island and had an absolutely brilliant time! Right through from the booking process to the tour itself, we found the team to be professional and friendly. Our tour guide Jamie was excellent - we loved the stories he told while driving along! Within 30 minutes of being picked up from the... More

This is a terrific 2 day tour of Kangaroo Island where you see animals in the true natural state. Tim Williams does a terrific job of finding spots and his lunches are to die for.

I know Craig from long time now and I'm a tour guide/tour operator on KI too. I know personally most of his guides and I can see them every day touring with their passengers. I must say that they are always very professional ! Good solid company and well done!

Ron and Jamie welcomed us to Kangaroo Island at the airport and took us straight to see koalas in the eucalyptus trees. A wonderful start to our time on Kangaroo Island which turned out to be perfect in every way. Over the following two days we saw kangaroos (lots of them), wallabies, seals, sea lions... and very nearly an echidna.... More

We spent two days with Gaynor and one each with Trevor and Ron . Although the drives between sights were fairly long, the trips were so worth it every time. Seeing the sea lions in their natural environment rolling down the dunes to the water and the mothers returning from the sea after three days calling their pups was an... More

We spent one day touring Kangaroo Island with Jaime and Trevor from Exceptional Tours. It was the best experience we had while we were traveling in Australia. We think the reason it was the best is all related to the expertise and great humor of our guides who showed us the beauty of this unique island. The lunch in the... More

We spent 2 very productive days on tour with Mary and then Dale. One day we did north-south and the other east-west. We visited the scenic west with the Remarkable Rocks and then saw lots of koalas plus some roos and wallabies. The next day, sea lions, more koalas and wallabies, and also an echidna, plus birds. Both guides were... More

Thanks very much for taking time to post a review - I am glad you had a good time with Mary and Dale although not surprised as they are both great guides and warm communicators. If you think there is something we can improve on or any ideas you have from your travels elsewhere please let us know as we... More
