From what I am seeing, we definitely want to book a tour. That said, How would we make such arrangements if we are staying in Adelaide? It sounds like the Ferry takes too long, and if we fly into Kingscote, how do we get to a location from which a tour leaves? Do you have suggestions? This is a priority part of the trip for us, and we haven't yet made any accommodations or interior flight plans. We would be coming in July. Do you recommend certain accommodations there? Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi, We (Husband and wife) coming to Melbourne on 10.02.2015 and will stay in Travelodge Dockland for a week. 1. What are your tours and charges? 2. Any concession if we take more than one trip? 3. How far you are located from Hotel? Will you pick us from hotel. 5. My wife has little back problem so she prefers to sit in front seats. Is it possible to ensure? 6. Can I pay once I come there. 7.
