Save your money. When the driver/tour guide had us all in the van he told us we would see kangaroos but maybe nothing else.He drove at breakneck speeds here and there and back again chasing elusive animals. We saw kangaroos, no koalas, two people saw a platypus and no one saw koalas. I thought we might see some stars but we were trapped in the van shining lights out the windows to try and see animals.What a waste of a day.

We really enjoyed this tour. Zoey was a great guide. She really tried to get us to see a Koala but unfortunately we just couldn't find it. We did see a paltypus, in fact we saw 2 which we were told was unusual. We saw 2-3 wombats. One came very close to my husband and he got a great video. We also saw 3 different kinds of possums, a lot of kangaroos, wallabees and birds. It was a long tour but it was so wonderful to see them in their natural habitat.

Zoe was so amazing. She so loves her job and the animals. She enthusiasm was so refreshing and it was so amazing to see the animals out in the wide and Zoe made sure we got great pictures and up close encounters with the wombats and kangaroos. It was an amazing trip. I would recommend this tour. It was a little costly but was worth it thanks to Zoe. We even seen a platypus.

We really enjoyed our trip. The tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. We saw kangaroos, platypus, wallabies, and wombats. Since the wildlife are unpredictable, we did not see koalas. However it was still fun to walk through the eucalyptus forest to look for them. The food was excellent. Overall a fantastic experience!

This tour was extremely fun and we were fortunate to have seen the Platypus and Echidna within a couple hours of each other.

Great day and evening in Australian country. Nothing so wild, but seeing koala and a glimpse of platypus in its natural habitat was fantastic and made this trip worth every penny.

Excellent guide and tour. However, very long trip to the reserve and not many koalas visible.

This tour was just what we had hoped it would be. Wildlife can not be guaranteed and we were a little worried but, it exceeded our expectations. We saw a koala, a platypus, kangaroos, some boxing, wombats, possums, sugar gliders, a kookaburra, gilas that were pink and gray, and cockatoos. This trip was worth every penny to us. We later went on a land trip with 33 others people for 21 days and never saw a kangaroo in the wild. So glad we took a chance on this trip. And the dinner was delicious too.

Liam, our guide who was a zoologist was very informative and made this tour very interesting. Day was very long and the only thing negative was that we did not see many animals. Saw lots of kangaroos and birds but only 1 koala.
