I was travelling with my husband, and grown up children (21 & 18). We all agreed that this 2 day trip was the highlight of our holiday. Expensive, but well worth it. Our guides, Nikki & Mark, were both passionate about their island. And equally knowledgable about the flora & fauna. Fabulous lunch on both days as well. We all... More

I had read some rather mediocre reviews of tours on Kangaroo Island but none of those complaints could be levelled at Odysseys. Numbers will fluctuate slightly with the season, but we were in a group of just two couples being shown around the island by our guide (Nikki Redman) in a four-wheel drive. Nikki is passionate about the island and... More

The 2 days we spent in KI were awsome, thanks to Nikki and Anna, the best of guides who made us discover their island with passion. Kangaroos, koalas, birds, sealions, we met all the fauna there and also gorgeous landscapes. 2 memorable days!

We had an amazing time on Kangaroo Island. Nikki is a first rate guide and companion. She knows everything there is to know about the animals, birds and plants! We saw echidnas, dolphins, sea lions, fur seals, as well as koalas, kangaroos and Wallabies. The scenery is magnificent and we both had a truly spiritual time. Many thanks again!

We spent 2 days with Odysseys. Gaylene (both days) and Nikki (first day) did a wonderful job! In the wild we saw an echidna digging near the road, koalas in trees above us several places and times, kangaroos grazing close and unconcerned (again several places and times), wallabies in a wooded area, a goanna (large lizard) in a field, many...

Visiting Australia for the first time we heard that Kangaroo Island was a "must" to see. My husband, my daughter (19 years) and myself chose the Odysseys 2 day tour to see this great island - and this became THE tour! Our guide, Rosemarie, met us with a comfortable 4w Toyota land cruiser and gave us our best tour experience... More

My daughter and I booked a tour and had Mark as our guide. We went in March 2013 and had a fantastic time. The trip over to the island was a bit rough on the ferry, so Mark let me ride in the front seat for the whole trip so I wouldn't get motion sickness. We talked throughout the tour... More
