I was fortunate to have the opportunity to take 2 different day tours with Exceptional Kangaroo Island and I could not have been more pleased with them. Scott Ellson was a lively, extremely knowledgeable and humorous tour guide. The food for lunch was fresh and so delicious (salads, cheeses, meats, fruit), and the Kangaroo Island wine was such a lovely... More

We only had one day on KI, but managed to get quite a bit out of it, thanks to Exceptional Kangaroo Island tours, and our wonderful guide, Gaynor! We saw Koalas, Kangaroos, Wallabies, many beautiful birds, and seals! Gaynor showed us a "hidden" beach, made us morning tea and lunch, and shared many stories about raising a family on a... More

We spent two days touring Kangaroo Island with Mary Oldfield. Mary was fantastic! We saw incredible wildlife and amazing sights. One highlight was walking through a field of about 20-30 kangaroos - it was just beautiful! Mary was incredibly knowledgeable about the island and everything it has to offer. She tailored the experience perfectly to us (we are a family... More

Hi Kim, So glad you enjoyed your time here with us and Mary was up to her usual high standard. We are lucky to have her on the team as she is such a great host. Behind the scenes Chan our Chef quietly does his magic so the food meets the needs of our guests. If there are any aspects... More

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.
