“Fantastic 1 day tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Paul met us at the small island airport. He started by orienting us with a large map of the island, and a historical and wildlife overview. We started by viewing Australian seals on the beach with gorgeous views and scenery, watching their antics and discussing them in interesting detail. Then a gourmet lunch on their private reserve at a table clothed tented bush mecca. OMG the food was fabulous! Great wine too (Chardonnay). I'll go fast: Paul's keen eye and explanations found dozens of wild koala, wallaby, kangaroos, goanna (like a small monitor lizard), copper head snake (careful! poisonous), eagle, etc. Paul dropped us at the airport, and walked us in to ensure we were safe and sound. Great guide, companion, and wildlife expert! Wonderful tour!

“Nikki Redman of Kangaroo Island Odysseys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Nikki made our tour of Kangaroo Island a highlight of our Australian trip. Her love for this small but scenic island is obvious, and she made us love it too! She shared deep knowledge of flora, fauna, and history, and has a brilliant eye for spotting creatures in their natural habitat. She is fun, friendly, and easy to be with. We highly recommend her!

“Exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

From the moment we were picked up at the airport in Kingscote until the moment we left late the next afternoon, we were treated like royalty. Our guide Danny was amazing. He was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, humorous, prompt and an overall great guy/guide! On day one there were five of us on tour but Danny made sure each of us was part of any discussion. On day two there were just the two of us so we were able to interact in a different manner.
The gourmet lunches were nothing less than spectacular. Added to the experiences provided - some planned and others impromptu, these lunches were the crowning touch.
We talked with others who had been with different tour companies and came away knowing ours was the absolute best.
Thanks, Danny! Hope to meet up with you again.

“Highlight of our adventure in OZ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We were met at the airport by out guide, Mark. Immediately we set out to find some native animals. Mark was a wealth of information about the plants, island, and the many tremendous animals that live there. The greatest thing was the glimpse into Island life and culture. What a terrific place Kangaroo Island is! We were so impressed with the Remarkable Rocks, sea life, the 19 Koala bears we found and adaptability of both people and animals to what can be a challenging climate. THANKS to Mark and the wonderful lunch ladies, it was an amazing two days!
