It was well organised and worked seamlessly. Les are bus driver and tour guide is a national treasure, fantastic made the trip very enjoyable.
Brilliant 2 days. Well organised and saw so much of the island and its wildlife. Hotel very good with room overlooking the sea. Thoroughly recommend it.
A highly recommended tour. The guide Glen Wilson was a local KI and he knew the place in and out. Ask anything and you had an answer for it. A breathtaking place to get lost for eternity. Only felt 2 days was far less. Also felt the eucalyptus tour could be replaced with something related to farming. A must do tour for all the holiday enthusiast.
Best of my three week stay in Australia. Lunch on one day was very iffy only could pick from two a Caesar salad or calamari and I dont eat either. Definitely thought a more normal lunch would be provided. But with that aside everything about this trip was wonderful. Watching the Seaguls being fed was really neat. Everything from our guide to Seal Bay to the spectacular birds of prey could not have been better. Well worth the trip.
We did the tour in late November and the weather was lovely--not too hot. There were 40-50 people on the tour and that seemed like a manageable number. We never had to wait for anyone to get back on the bus and we kept on schedule. The activities/sites that were chosen for us were great. We liked visiting with the owners of the bee farm and the eucalyptus distillery and sampling/buying their wares. We especially enjoyed the wildlife portions of the tour. The lunches were delicious and the lodging was nice. Our tour bus driver told us all about Kangaroo Island and answered all our questions. The pick up from the hotel and delivery to and from the airport was so easy and convenient.
Great Trip, Our guide Les was excellent, an animal lover's dream holiday.
Excellent trip, Les was fantastic as a guide , lots packed in and an animal lover's dream
At the beginning there was a mix up with the pick-up point in Adelaide causing some fraught moments and a rather disgruntled, though very polite, driver.
Thereafter the tour was the highlight of our trip to Australia, with many sights, animals and good food and accommodation. Overall, excellent.
We really enjoyed this excursion. It was a rather early start but that meant we had a full day on the island even after a long drive and ferry crossing. The bus driver and guide was excellent. The tour made the most of the features of the island and it was particularly exciting to see the wild life. We were glad we flew home and arrived in Adelaide a bit early than the bus as a result.
Sea link,the local operator,is very
organized,very good in over all.
I loved everthing in this tour include
the tour guide,Kalen.I plan to visit
this island again someday,many things to do and see.
Kangaroo Island is a fantastic island, and the best destination from South Australia

Pleasant trip, packed itinerary, nice food and accommodation. The initial pick up and return drop off trips might be a bit long but you get to view a Doco about the Island on board the ferry too!
We enjoyed our 2 day tour on Kangaroo Island. Warning for anyone that gets motion sickness the ferry moves against the swell so a bit of a rough ride. There was a little confusion about which bus was ours it could have been prevented if they were colour coded so we could find it easily. Enjoyed the close encounter of the sea lions, the bird of prey demonstration, the opportunity to feed kangaroos but the two highlights were the pelican feeding and seeing the koalas at the Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.
It was truly amazing. Spent two weeks in the Adelaide area and, beyond a doubt, this tour was the best experience of our trip. From spectacular scenery to feeding kangaroo and petting a koala. Took hundreds of photos and couldn't wait to show them off. They are long days with five stops the first and six the second but we'll remember it forever. The hotel in Kingscote was very nice. Food stops were wonderful. Driver was personable and knowledgeable. We NEVER would have found all the wonderful places we visited.
The tour was excellent from start to finish and was a wonderful overview of a superb Island. The very best thing was our driver, Les, he was quite simply OUTSTANDING and you should cherish him!! On all our travels we have never had a more informed, friendly, humerous and talented guide. The hotel we stayed at also added to the great value for money of a well conceived tour. Congratulations Viator!
What a FANTASTIC time! This had to definitely be the highlight of our tour in Australia. We had Liz as a tour guide and we couldn't have asked for a better person! He was funny, nice, thoughtful, and knew the land like the back of his hand! The only thing that I really wish wasn't part of this tour was the Parndana Wildlife Park. The birds had no room to fly, the place was in terrible condition, the koalas only had a stump of a tree and had people poking and prodding them all day long. What a prison for these animals. It was a really sad place to visit and almost all of the other guests on the tour thought the same thing. If you love animals, DO NOT go to this place! Why not have the tour see the penguins instead?? I was really disappointed that this was not part of the tour. Other than that, it was great! I LOVED the sanctuary itself!
Early pickup in Adelaide and drive to ferry to get to island. On island the driver/ guide, local gentleman steeped in history and culture of the island, took us to multiple interesting areas to see local commercial activities,honey farm and eucalyptus distillery and a number of sites where we were exposed to indigenous flora and fauna. Visited Flinders-Chase National Park at the west end of the island and saw interesting geologic and historic areas. Accomadations and meals provided were very good, best calamari meal I've every had! Between scheduled stops guide shared local economic and social history.
Would suggest they cut down on the Nature/Animal Reserves and concentrate more on the positives of the Island.
