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.

    It was a seamless trip to Kangaroo Island that was booked through Sealink. The lady who made changes to the pick up, by advising of the parkade closest to the bus depot, was pleasant, helpful and efficient. The air conditioned bus departed punctually and the bus driver courteously explained what we were to expect on the trip to Cape Jervis. We boarded the ferry and departed on time for Kangaroo Island. The cafe on board sells coffee and light meals. It is good to take snacks. The ferry trip was very smooth. The Sealink bus left for Seal Bay Conservation Park. We were able to see the seals quite close up. The guide was very knowledgeable and outlined the dangers to us and the seals if their environment was not respected. We stopped for lunch that was included in the booking. The bistro was functional and the staff pleasant. The meal of a warm chicken salad and cheesecake was ample and tasty. Tea and coffee was provided and cold drinks can be purchased. We were then taken to Remarkable Rocks which are truly well-named. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world. There was plenty of time to take photographs. Admirals Arch was the next stop and has accessible boardwalks to the bottom. The last place to visit was the Wildlife Conservation Park. We saw koalas, penguins, chickens, echidna, parrots and kangaroos. The most endearing were the kangaroos. They could be fed and the kangaroos eating from your hands is unforgettable. The ferry trip back saw dolphins chasing the ferry. The bus driver, Will, had a wealth of knowledge on the local flora and fauna and amiably answered every question asked. He stopped to give everyone photo opportunities at magnificent parts of the Island. The Sealink day trip is really well organised. I would recommend the trip as we got to see so many sights in a day which would be exhausting if done on your own. I uploaded a short video of my trip on my YouTube channel LaraLise life & crafts

    We had a great day with Roy who was very entertaining and informative. We managed to see all the sites before the crowds on a busy day. A very relaxing river cruise. Great views of Adelaide and its surrounds.

    The start of the day was not great. The first bus driver from Adelaide to ferry was super rude. Once we were on Kangaroo Island Scott our tour guide picked us up and then he was marvellous. He is soo knowledgeable about KI and his story were awesome to hear. The several stops were great however there is so much to see on Kangaroo island that we only just scraped the surface. Would have love to stay a full week.
    The day was very long with over 9 hours of travel time.

    We were doing our 4th trip there but this time we took our brother & sister in law from NZ. Weather was not usual December temperatures but was good for driving. We covered all the usual tourist beaches, Remarkable Rocks etc. To get there we were only able to book an evening crossing with Sea Link, however they were able to fit us, with our car, 2 crossings earlier and the same thing happened on our return. They really squeezed our car on. Thanks Sea Link.

    A lovely day out. Very peaceful.
    Trip down the Murray on a paddle steamer was really good, Shame it couldn't be just a bit longer.
    Food on the boat was 1st class. Super tasty.
    After the cruise we got free time in the town of Mannum but it was probably too long, very quiet town with not alpt to see (museum closed due to flooding earlier this year)
    On the way back we stopped at Melbas chocolate factory and there was a cheese place next door but it was closing.
    Our driver, Michael, was fantastic. We felt very safe, and he was full of local information.
    I would highly recommend this day trip.

    This trip was amazing! I had the best time! And as a solo traveller it was a great bunch with a mixture of people who were all so lovely! The tour was packed full and I think it could be even better if it was a 4 day tour to fit a bit more in and spend a little longer at places. The guides were amazing and food was so good and dietary needs were SO well catered for! Would highly recommend!

    The experience was magical and totally worth it. The team at the roof climb is very helpful in every possible way.
    Henry, our tour attendant, showed us the city all around and clicked beautiful pictures.

    The Mount Lofty Descent Bike experience provided a brillant opportunity to show cast Adelaide in it's full glory. The tour starts with a short, relaxing drive to the summit and an incredible panoramic view over the city. The ride was refreshingly cool esp since Adelaide had temperatures in the high 30's. I enjoyed exercising with a few achieveable challanges 'here & there'. My highlight was being able to 'ride and chat' to my friends whilst spotting koalas in the trees. Thank you Ian for providing a great day's experience.

    We had perfect weather for our ride :-), our guide Ben was great, very knowledgeable and easy going. Great cafe stop for morning tea at Henley Beach before making our way along the coast to Glenelg. After having a leisurely look around we returned to Adelaide via the tram. Fabulous day, thank you.
    My only suggestion would be for better signage at the meeting/starting point.

    Just fantastic. The park is wonderful, the landscape awesome and the chance to feed kangaroos and pet koalas is not to be missed. Brilliant day all round 😊

    Excellent 1 hour tour with selection of wines - booked day before and I was the only person. Very professional, informative and enjoyable. Highly recommended if your stay in Adelaide is short.

    This tour was amazing! We saw a lot of beautiful and different landscapes along the way and we did some really cool activities in those 10 days, including some hikes, surfing, sandboarding, swimming with dolphins and sealions, wave hunting and drinking at breweries/wineries!
    Our guide Jackson is a really cool and easy-going guy who gave us really useful information about the things we saw and also about the Aboriginal culture!
    The fact that Jackson wasn't just the guide but also really part of our group made it really fun and personal!
    I'd definitely recommend this tour!
