Jamie's wealth of knowledge regarding not only native wildlife and fauna, but also his insight into the development of island economics and tourism, were engaging and informative. The two-day "Kangaroo Island in Style" package included two day tours and... More

Lovely beaches and look out point. Traveled in an one day tour but felt very rushed. Definitely go for a 2 day tour or even more

Exceptional Kangaroo Island tour was one of the highlights of our visit to Australia. Staff made sure our two days on the island were full of great adventures, but tailored to our needs and preferences. We experienced amazing close-up views of animals and were taken to sight after sight that took your breath away. Even though the knowledgeable and friendly... More

My husband and I flew from Adelaide to join a two day tour on Kangaroo Island. We were met at the airport by Tim and Ron and joined three other couples for our first day. Both guides were excellent and extremely knowledgable with a great sense of humour. On the second day, Tim collected us from our overnight stop and... More

We set off in a comfortable and spacious mini bus and travelled... More

Scott was very personable, sincere, and went out of his way to ensure all questions were answered. He was very informative, sharing lots of information about the island, animals, etc. He even included extra stops on the tour so we could experience as much as possible of the island. The meals he prepared were outstanding and was flexible to special... More

This is for you if you want quality and not quantity. Visited magical beaches and, in the bush, saw the rare glossy black cockatoo.

My wife and I had a fantastic time with Exceptional Kangaroo Island. It was definitely one of the highlights of our three week tour of Australia. Kangaroo Island itself was amazing, but the tour put it over the top. Our guides, Ron and Scott, were awesome and knew exactly where to take us to see the best of the island.... More

Hi there, Thanks for your kind words about your experience with Scott and Ron. The photos are superb - you captured so much character in the wildlife shots! You were lucky with that great white - I have only seen one once and this is the third siting at Cape du Couedic that I am aware of. All the best,... More
