    My husband and I were visiting Kangaroo Island as part of a cruise ship itinerary and therefore limited to a few hours to get a real feel for the place
    We didn’t know what to expect when we booked this tour but knew we preferred to go in a smaller group than those offered by the cruise line.
    We were blown away at how good it was. I have to say our guide, Nikki, made our day. Her enthusiasm and ability to keep those on the bus entertained and interested was exceptional. Nikki has vast amounts of knowledge about the Island from the animals, geology, history, people, and natural beauty to the abundance of activities and industry that makes it so unique.
    Highly recommend this tour.

    The start of the day was not great. The first bus driver from Adelaide to ferry was super rude. Once we were on Kangaroo Island Scott our tour guide picked us up and then he was marvellous. He is soo knowledgeable about KI and his story were awesome to hear. The several stops were great however there is so much to see on Kangaroo island that we only just scraped the surface. Would have love to stay a full week.
    The day was very long with over 9 hours of travel time.

    Nikki Redman was my tour guide and she knows and breathes Kangaroo Island being a born, raised and proud native. I sure noticed her PASSION in what she brought. She was Wikipedia as a human with its history, the lifestyle, where to go like Seal Bay where I got to witness seals that were free to do whatever they wanted, simply amazing! I just viewed their interactions with one another and it brought understanding life to its simplest and loving terms.

    Then there was the moment we came across an Echidna that Nikki noticed walking nearby the street as she was driving with her radar eyes being able to see any life form that needs attention. That is an animal lover at its best! The Echidna, a descendant of the monotreme as noted by Nikki is the oldest mammal living as she mentioned that dating back to 120 million years!

    Remarkable Rocks was a beautiful place she took me to with the natural rock formations from the creation of the ocean in which Australia was once underwater years ago. It was so colorful as I took countless pictures and videos.

    Flinders Chase National Park with so scenic as I took more pictures and videos of the seals climbing rocks and this other area in the back that has a hole like background that you can see the ocean into. Spectacular!!

    Finally, what everyone comes here for, the kangaroos and kualas. We saw them and I was able to find some myself on how Nikki described to me where and what to look for in seeing them. So magical!

    Nikki did her job and much, much more because it didn’t look like it was work for her. That made me so proud to have her as a guide and as a new and only friend located on Kangaroo Island. Do not seek anyone else, but her if you can. She is also a professional photographer. That means that she knows where to find the right spots for your memorable picture and video taking.

    Thank you!

    Sincerely,

    My friend and I had a fantastic time on this three day tour! We saw wild kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, sea lions, and geckos - and we were lucky enough to see an echidna, too. The stops were all enjoyable and there was a pleasant amount of walking involved. Our guide, Gianna, was as personable as she was professional and catered expertly to every tourgoer's needs. Recommended, especially for those who have never been to Kangaroo Island before!

    This was a trip of two halves. The first day with 47 other travellers was a lot of coach travel and the second day with 12 others was much more relaxed.
    First I must praise our guide Hamish for his amazing knowledge and how he handled the problems on the first day.
    With a packed itinerary what you need is everything going to plan but it didn’t - ferry arrived late, passenger took a long time in the bathroom, and road works. So we arrived at Seal Bay too late to do the guided tour. However good views of seals from the public viewing platform. Rest of the day went according to plan and night in Seafront hotel was good. Food in Kiosk good but not much choice.
    Second day was brilliant with a small group and plenty of time for Hamish to stop and show us more things on the way including his home beach - Pennington bay. Best thing on the trip the Raptor show where Hamish had advised us to sit on the front row so I had a barn owl sitting on my knee.
    My advice to other travellers. Don’t do the one day trip to Kangaroo Island that goes to Remarkables Rocks and Admirals Arch unless you really only have one day free. It starts at 6.30 am in Adelaide and finishes around 10 pm. If I could do it all again, and I had the time, I would opt for the 3 day Sealink guided tour.

    This was a great way to see some main attractions on the island. Some of the scenery was absolutely breathtaking and we were fortunate to see lots of the animals in the wild and also at the fauna sanctuary. Our guide and driver Hamish absolutely made the tour by sharing his amazing knowledge of the island and the Australian flora and fauna. Would definitely recommend!

    We recently took the 2-day Kangaroo Island tour with Kangaroo Island Hire-a-Guide. The first day focused on wildlife (koalas, kangaroos and, luckily for us, the exotic echidna); the second day on the incredible scenery and the Island’s recovery story from the dreadful wildfires a few years ago. If you have the time, we strongly recommend the 2-day tour to get the full story of this remarkable place.

    This firm is a two-person operation. Our guide, Kangaroo Island native Nikki Redman, was exceptional and takes you places that other tours wouldn’t go and you certainly wouldn’t find on your own. She had a phenomenal knowledge of wildlife, nature and the Island’s history. The BBQ lunches prepared were fabulous and a lot of fun. Very highly recommended.

    Was a great day out, saw some nice places and the Raptor domain session was the best part. Lunch was second best.

    Wow, what an incredibly enjoyable day! Nikki made the whole day so wonderful for our family. Her enthusiasm, wealth of knowledge and love for Kangaroo Island shone through. From the accommodating side jaunts for our bird phtotography interest, to the magic of Seal Bay, the spotting of koalas and echidnas and the delicious lunch.
    We topped off our day capturing the Western Whip Bird, glad we were there to share that special moment with you Nikki! Highly, highly recommend Nikki and Luca to see all the sights of KI. A must do.

    We loved our half-day tasting tour of KI - we were lucky enough to be a family of four alone - very knowledgable guide, each stop was enjoyable (wine, gin, lavender, honey and eucalyptus) and we came away with some local goodies!
    Very personal, friendly and highly recommended!

    Luca was so friendly! He has so much knowledge about kangaroo island and presents himself so well. Our tour would have not been the same without him. We will definitely be recommending Luca to all our friends and family.

    I can’t say enough good things about this touring company! They go above and beyond to make your trip special. We took 2 day tours with them and a night safari. We saw sooo many animals and they know where to look for them. Don’t consider anyone else!
