Our Exceptional Kangaroo Island tour conducted by Jamie and Mary, each island natives, was spectacular. We spent the day in the bush seeing Kangaroo and Koala in their natural habitat and walked the beach among a colony of sea lions. The landscape was breathtaking - the best eco-tourism adventure we've had.

We toured with the Exceptional Island Tours and had Dave as a tour guide one day and Dave and Jamie on the second day. The first day was the Flinders Chase Focus and the second day was Island Life tour. Both tours were excellent and we saw wonderful scenery and a lot of wildlife on both tours. Dave and Jamie...

We can fully recommend the Island Life and Flinders Chase Tours that we enjoyed over two consecutive days. The key is that these are small group tours. Tour leader Dale was excellent and demonstrated her love of the Island whilst showing us the sights and wildlife. These two tours are sufficient for most tourists to appreciate Kangaroo Island, that is... More

We had an amazing tour with Ron and Jamie the first day, they took us to some fabulous places and kept us entertained with the jokes that they bounced off each other. The next day Ron was joined by Tim, a retired policeman. It was equally entertaining with the jokes again which made the miles of travelling more enjoyable. Wherever... More

We just left Kangaroo Island and Dale and Dave of Exceptional Kangaroo Island did a fabulous job of taking us around the island, teaching us about the animals, the history and the lifestyle of the island. We saw all the important spots in two very full days of travel: Flinders National Park, The Arch, Remarkable Rocks, Vivonne Bay, the north... More

If you are fortunate to visit this amazing island don't miss Seal Bay. The facilities are fantastic even for those with disabilities. Board walks make vfor easy access to various parts of this beautiful windswept rugged bay. The seals are everywhere, in the water on the beach and in the sand dunes. Nature at its best. The information centre is... More

There is no better way to truly see a place than through the eyes of the people who live there. This company is owned by and has tour guides who have lived there for most of their lives, raised their kids there, and love the island. They know the stories and history as well as the best place to see... More

Kangaroo Island is probably the best value for money holiday you can find. I have found the best time of year to visit here has been around June/July/August a little bit cool but has always been excellent scenery and the weather adds to the experience. The hotter months are not do enjoyable for me . Have been here 5 times... More
