We spent 2 days with Ron and Gaynor touring the island and had a great time. Nothing was too much trouble and both guides were a mine of information! Highlights for us were the seals at Admiral Arch,spotting an echidna and the fabulous BBQ lunch. Thanks again.

We had two days touring Kangaroo Island with Mary Oldfield as our guide. Mary was brilliant having lived on the island all her life and still actively living and working in farming we felt that we were getting the "real" thing. We had the two days with different people in the bus each day, which was good. The catering arrangements... More

We had a very enjoyable trip with Scott though the wondrous KI Flinders National Park. Even when I ran into some minor health issues during the trip he was more than accommodating, not fussed or stressed by anything and happy to help. His local knowledge and ability to "spin a yarn" meant we enjoyed the trip even more - he... More

We did a 2 day tour with Ron Swan on December 29th & 30th 2014, and it was truly one of our highlights during our entire time in Australia- I highly recommend this tour & tour guide. For our first day, Ron picked us up at our accommodation and we spent the entire day touring with a very small group... More

We had such a great 3 days on this island! We loved seeing all the animals in the wild--the sea lions on the beach, the fur seals on the rocks at spectacular Admirals Arch, the koalas in the trees, the fields full of kangaroos, the shy echidnas.... And the Remarkable Rocks are...well, remarkable!!

Our visit and guided tour with Jamie Bowden of Exceptional Kangaroo Island Tours was the highlight of the trip to Australia. 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
