This was a wonderful tour, in that we were gone all day seeing all the great sites that KI has to offer. We saw tons of Koalas, Admiral Arch, Remarkable Rocks, Kangaroos, and Wallabees. Plus we had excellent snacks and lunches in beautiful settings. The guides were attentive to our requests and seemed to be genuinely sincere in trying to... More

What to say about the tour arranged by this group? Our whole experience has been exceptional. Right from the very prompt response to our emails to the tour designed for us. The Kangaroo island was the highlight of our stay in Australia. We are a family of 4, 2 kids 12 and 9 and were met on the airport by... More

Where do I start. We are a family of 5 (to include a 13, 10 & 7 year old traveling from freezing cold Minnesota, USA) This company and tour should get a perfect 100 out of 5!! Our day started by them picking us up at our Aurora Ozone room and departing for a day we will never forget. If... More

Really enjoyed Kangaroo Island for it's wildlife, unique landscapes and raging ocean in the south! Recommend Seal Bay, the Raptor Show, and Kangaroo Island Marine Adventures most!

Countryside was very pastoral and dry. Animal numbers were okay but not exceptional. We only saw 4 koalas in the NP and expected to easily see more. However Seal Bay tour was very good and the Kelly Hill Caves were a delight

My wife and I had a personal tour of Kangaroo Island with Gaynor Bowden with Exceptional Kangaroo Island tour company. She was a superb guide with exceptional knowledge of the Island. We saw kangaroos, wallabies, and koalas in their natural habitat. Gaynor prepared an excellent lunch "in the bush".

I enjoyed going to the Magnificent Rocks. They were amazing and the views from there were also lovely. We took some jungle walkswhich were also interesting. The island is quite large and took some time to get from one end to another. To see the seals was a real treat. We were allowed to get quite close and able to... More

From the arrival on Kangaroo island, this was a full on tour with lots happening. Our first Koala sighting was within 10 minutes of leaving the airport, from then on it was bird life, kangaroo, seals interspersed with coffee and unique barbecue lunches in the bush at locations only available to this company, the guide was not only very knowledgeable...
