Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Colin gave us a spirited tour of Kangaroo Island: the beaches, kangaroos, koalas and sea lions made of a memorable day, including the Whiting fish lunch at Vivonne Bay. Highly recommended

Colin gave us a fantastic tour, he went out of his way to make sure we saw the most of KI in a day, while still allowing us time to appreciate all the places we visited. Right from the first phone contact, through to the end of our trip, I give him a 5-star rating!

We booked a full day island beach and wine tour for our honeymoon! Colin amazingly put together a full schedule based on our preferences and gave us a private tour since it was our honeymoon! Our guide curly was the best and gave us history of the island and was flexible with the plans if we wanted something changed throughout the day!! Highly recommend. He showed us places we would not have found on our own and made sure we saw some kangaroos!!

The BEST tour we’ve ever had with our family. Colin Childs from Kangaroo Island Tours and Bus Charters provided us with one of the most impressive and amazing experiences we could ever ask for. With his incredible knowledge knowing the island like the back of his hand, he has shown us the most beautiful hidden gems around the island - and by hidden gems we mean the best of the best. Absolutely a stunning trip and it was a great pleasure to have chosen Colin Childs and his Kangaroo Island Tours and Bus Charters for an indescribable family adventure!!

Awesome day tour of Kangaroo Island. Our tour guide Curly is an absolute legend! Being a 4th generation local he has all the knowledge on the island, both old and new and is super friendly, so impressive. We had a personal tour so we were able to see all the places we wanted to visit, Stokes Bay, Flinders Chase National Park and a few others along the way. I would highly recommend KI 24/7 Bus Charters. Colin was great with communication on the booking of our tour and the bus was comfortable.

Colin was a great tour guide and provided local knowledge and history of the island. I also saw local wildlife including, kookaburras, koalas, tammar wallaby, echidna and kangaroos. He was very flexible with time and accommodating to plans. He also provided transport to Flinders Chase National Park were I planned to do the platypus waterholes walk as not many other tour operators offer transport to the walking trails. Lunch was provided by Fat Beagle cafe and was delicious and fresh. He also surprised me with added stops into the local Eucalyptus oil distillery which was lovely and had a pleasant smell.

Colin was fantastic in organising a tour for our family of 10. Curly one of Colin’s local guides is a 4th generation Kangaroo Islander and shared his wealth of knowledge and personal stories. He took us off the normal tourist route and we found some amazing places.

Thanks KI 24/7

We had a wonderful day on KI from a cruise ship. The day before our visit the ship itinerary changed which meant would be visiting a day earlier than expected. We thought our tour would have to be cancelled and that would be that. We were so impressed with how accomodating Colin was; he swapped things around to make sure we still got our tour. Definitely the highlight of our holiday and we were amazed at how much he managed to cram into the day for us.

We booked a tour for a group of 11 pax from a cruise ship. We agreed to pay cash on the day of the tour. Everything was confirmed by email. Two months later he tripled the price! When we complained he said he didn't have a vehicle/driver available. At that point it was very difficult to book anything else. Do not depend on this company to honor their commitments.

Colin was great to work with. He took a group of 8 of us on a wine tour. He was accommodating, friendly, and was all about us having a good time. If you're needing a reliable charter - highly recommend. :)
