“Great guide”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We were here in sept 2010, and had Luca show us around for a day. He was wonderful! He showed us around, and he really seemed to know a lot about the island. I would highly recommend him as we got a very personalized tour of the island!

“Luca is a great guide, fun and entertaining”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We spent an entire day on Kangaroo Island with Luca, the owner and organizer of the tour company. We arrived at the ferry and we picked him up on our car.
He brought us around the island, in very touristy and also secluded places. He is very informative, passionate about his work and the island and for sure one of the best guides we have hired around.
Compared to other operators that put you in large groups on their 4x4, Luca jumps into your car and gives you a very personalized service. We dis some wildlife spotting, we saw twice a koala, many kangaroos and other animals. He also brought us on Seal Bay beach to see the Sea Lions, the advantage to go with Luca is that he is authorized to guide you down near the sea lions, and we were just us and him. It was perfect, the sea lions were extremely cute, and you can really enjoy the experience.
He is very attentive, he prepared for us a nice coffee break on the hood of our car, nice lunch.
Definitely recommended if you go Kangaroo Island.

“Great Day with Lutz”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We hired a car in the Airport on arrival, and our personal guide, Lutz, joined us for a full day of sight seeing. Lutz was very knowledgeable and took us to the most interesting parts of the island. Great way to explore KI!

“Special tailored trips”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

I had a morning left after all my other sightseeing and Luca Lovison put together a great short trip to a part of the island I hadn't already seen. I got to taste a sparkling Shiraz at one of the vinyards, had proper coffee on a beach (the advantage of hiring an Italian guide) and saw loads of other things in just a few hours. Most other available tours are set and standard, Hire a Guide gives you the opportunity to create your own trip.

“nice trip!”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We have been in kagaroo island for two days with Lutz (a cooperator of Luca), that took us to see all the attractions of the island, included also not so touristic places. Great experience, clear and precise guide. We suggest an axperience like that, because you are alone with your personal guide and so your tour won't be too much schematic as happens in the guided tours with many people.
