    Our guides Jamie and Skye were very friendly knowledgeable and accommodating! Their enthusiasm for all aspects of Kangaroo Island was contagious! Picnic-style Breakfast and lunch were delicious and enhanced by the local wines. So grateful to have this adventure with them!

    4WD vehicle was comfortable and had seatbelts. Well organised pick up and drop off. Morning tea with lamingtons and lunch were very good. Wildlife spotting was good but disspointed when we did not stop for the rare koala on the road photo oppertunity. Views at Flinders vista

    Hi there, Thanks for your review - sorry you were not delighted with our service. Our average review score is over 4.7 so with a score of 3 clearly we did not meet your expectations. There are a couple of points I would like to provide some context on: Stopping for wildlife on the roadside This is not always possible - things which our team take into consideration include vehicle and guest safety [can we stop and look safely without being a hazard to other travellers or putting ourselves in danger]; itinerary pressure - we do not have control over where people stay and what their arrival and departure logistics are [on the day in question we had airport arrivals and departures which put strict constraints on time available]; and the other point is potentially stressing animals. New guides You did travel with our newer guides - however, they are new to guiding with us, not new to providing excellent customer service. One is a PhD marine biologist and fish ecologist who has been working on the Island in environmental education for 25 years. The other guide who you had both days has worked for us for some time and has also worked in Queensland. Their average score from our guests on TripAdvisor is nearly 4.9 - higher than our overall average for almost 400 reviews. The "more experienced" guide who joined on the second day is actually our newest guide - having had previous experience with Federal Police, Fire Management and Wildlife Research. I will share your feedback with our team and have already reviewed the itinerary via the on-board GPS mapping system and, in terms of timing, am satisfied that the guides provided the experience which best fit the logistics on the day. Total distance travelled was about 290km which is about as efficient as we can do it given the size and shape of the Island and the location of various accommodations, landmarks and infrastructure. We do offer private tours as well as our small group departures and with a private tour, we can cater exactly to our guests' interests and stay as long as they wish at particular locations. Best of luck with the rest of your travels, Kind regards, Craig

    We spent 2 days wandering Kangaroo Island and managed to see everything we had hoped to see! Kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, koalas, cockatoos and the iconic Remarkable Rocks as well as Seal Bay and the fur seals. Our guides (Jamie and Bill) were incredibly knowledgeable and

    Thanks for your enthusiastic review - glad you enjoyed your time with us. Just a little point for travellers reading this - our Flinders Chase Focus tour includes a sea-lion experience (long-nosed fur-seals) but not Seal Bay. The Australian sea-lion experience at Seal Bay is included on our Island Life tour. We can do both but only on a private charter. Kind regards, Craig
