We took 2 full day tours. What a treat. The guides we excellent. Knowledgeable and engaging. The animals were abundant. Both trips included a early tea/coffee stop and and a very well done lunch including wine or beer. We saw kangaroos, wallabies seals, many bird and lizards. Excellent experience. Many thanks to the guides, Dave, Ron and Jamie. All topnotch.

I went with the family 2 children and 3 adults, spent 3 days touring Kangoroo Island with Mr Jamie Bowden and Mr Lee: the experience was wonderful, the way they treated us, the knowledge about the island, the history, the local customs, the way they care for nature, their safety measures.... They definitively exceeded our expectations.
We will return and book the tour with the same company and hopefully the same guides. They were both amazing!

We took two trips with this company in a small coach each day. Our drivers, Lee and Tim were both very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the place and animals we were seeing. On both days each of these drivers cooked a barbecue or lunch set out on special tables for us.
It was a great experience and I can well recommend this company for making our stay on Kangaroo Island very enjoyable.

Kangaroo Island is a magical place and we really enjoyed our tours. Both Ron and Dave were very friendly and professional and you could tell they love what they do, love the animals and are excited to share their knowledge of their beloved island and its enchanting creatures. They both made us lunch al fresco and it was wonderful! Thanks for a great experience.

Blair Lee and Rob took us around Kangaroo Island visiting Seal Bay and other areas. Despite the fires there is still plenty to see and do on Kangaroo Island. The food was fantastic and the guides wonderfully knowledgeable. Blair is a real treasure.

We visited Kangaroo Island for two days on 7/8 February and went on two day tours with Exceptional Kangaroo Island. Due to the recent fires our tour for the second day was changed but it in no way detracted from our experience. Our thanks to Lee and Jamie for an amazing experience.
Please please visit the island as they need your support. We saw lots of kangaroos, wallabies and koalas. The visit to Seal Bay was amazing. Lee and Jamie we’re both very knowledgeable. We had an amazing time. We especially enjoyed the outdoor lunches.
