A highlight !!! It is expensive yes, but you are right in the middle of it and our guide Nikki is just super friendly and very experienced. You can tell that she loves her island and she had an eye for snakes, koalas, goanna monitor lizards and eagles. We couldn't get out of amazement. A really successful day. A nicely organized small group lunch with wine, marinated lamb salmon and salads is very well organized. Top!

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.

Gary our guide and driver was amazing 200% recommend
