What people are saying about Kangaroo Island

An absolutely wonderful day with Mr G! We had no idea of the complexity of Kangaroo Island..so many varied industries to visit...Honey production, Gin Distillery, Lavender Farm along with lovely lunch, including Lavender scones with lavender jam and cream, Wineries, Eucalyptus Distillery, 1st Post Office in SA, and Beautiful beaches and more... We were picked up on time, and given such personal attention for the whole day..thanks to Mr G!

This activity was amazing, the transport from the city to the ferry and then from the port to the hotel was good. The tour began right after breakfast, and the tour guide, Nikki, was one of the best tour guides I've ever had, if not the best, she was full of knowledge and passion from kangaroo Island. I highly recommend this tour.

Great, informative and individual tour with many impressions of the island. Many koalas, seals and dolphins. Delicious lunch. Great schedule, no waiting times. We were happy not to drive the unpaved roads with our own rental car.

Picked up at our door and ferried around in a very comfortable vehicle to visit honey, eucalyptus and lavender farms, vineyards and gin distillery while seeing some of the islands spectacular scenery.

Was an amazing tour with an awesome guide! Will be recommending this tour to anyone who comes to KI
