Kangaroo Island is a must visit place! I have been wanting to see it and my dream has been realised via a cruise on Pacific Jewel. My fave places are the Remarkable Rocks and the areas around them- the museum, Admiral's arch and other places! Rare species of fur seals are also basking in the sun when we were there-... More

We spent 2 days in KI and had our whole stay organized by EKI. The staff were extremely professional from the moment we booked and throughout our stay. They came to pick us up from the airport and took us immediately on a tour to see koalas, seals, kangaroos etc. Dave was our guide the first day and was very... More

Our family of four, including our mid-20s son and daughter, spent two days touring Kangaroo Island with Exceptional Kangaroo Island Interpretive Tour Guide Scott Ellison. We could not have had a better experience. Scott was friendly, personable, upbeat and accommodating to all of our requests and questions. Additionally, he was well informed about the island's history, geography, wildlife, culture and... More

We were perhaps unlucky with the weather - chilly and overcast. We expected more spectacular scenery. However we did enjoy our stay but probably would not return.

We had a fantastic time touring Kangaroo island for two days with our guide Jamie from EKI in early May. First day, there were only 2 of us (we booked a shared tour), and two more people joined on second day. Kangaroo island is a beautiful place, and Jamie went above and beyond to make sure we enjoy the experience.... More

Exceptional Kangaroo Island treated me to a wonderful two days on Kangaroo Island, one of Australia's treasures waiting to be discovered but enjoyed responsibly. From looking for koalas to learning about native trees, shrubs and flowers, to viewing wildlife and birds from remarkably close vantage, this visit was a childhood dream come true. It helped immensely that Ron Swan, my... More

We had a great time on our two one-day tours, both with Ron as our guide. Everything was professionally handled-yet relaxed and flexible, with time to stop, take a photo, climb a rock, stop for wildlife crossing the road, just the way a holiday should be. This was our second trip to Australia and, while we had a fabulous first... More

Mary was a great guide who knows the island and is able to explain todays life in a interesting way. There was enough time to stroll on our own around and enjoy the quiet dramatic scenery of the The Rocks or the arch. Thank you
