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.

*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    Our guide on the Island was a local lady, she share her passion for the island, infos about daily life in the island, the history, wildlife etc …. Wonderful
    The only down side, running on each site.
    I would happily have skipped the wildlife park for longer stay at remarkable rocks .

    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.

    Our experience with KI Hire a Guide was absolutely 5 stars. We did the nocturnal tour with Luca and the day tour with Nikki, both of whom were fabulous. Nikki was very enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable, and so much fun. She helped us spot a lot of animals including an echidna, koalas in trees and on the ground, kangaroos, eagles, sea lions & pups. The tour included a fabulous lunch cooked on the barbecue. We would highly recommend requesting Nikki for a day tour - she is absolutely phenomenal. Luca is very quick to respond to questions and pays attention to all the details when organizing the tours. He was great at spotting nocturnal activity during our night tour (including an echidna, penguins, opossums, kangaroos, an owl, and tons of wallabies of course). 10/10 recommend KI Hire a Guide.

    This was a trip of two halves. The first day with 47 other travellers was a lot of coach travel and the second day with 12 others was much more relaxed.
    First I must praise our guide Hamish for his amazing knowledge and how he handled the problems on the first day.
    With a packed itinerary what you need is everything going to plan but it didn’t - ferry arrived late, passenger took a long time in the bathroom, and road works. So we arrived at Seal Bay too late to do the guided tour. However good views of seals from the public viewing platform. Rest of the day went according to plan and night in Seafront hotel was good. Food in Kiosk good but not much choice.
    Second day was brilliant with a small group and plenty of time for Hamish to stop and show us more things on the way including his home beach - Pennington bay. Best thing on the trip the Raptor show where Hamish had advised us to sit on the front row so I had a barn owl sitting on my knee.
    My advice to other travellers. Don’t do the one day trip to Kangaroo Island that goes to Remarkables Rocks and Admirals Arch unless you really only have one day free. It starts at 6.30 am in Adelaide and finishes around 10 pm. If I could do it all again, and I had the time, I would opt for the 3 day Sealink guided tour.

    This was a great way to see some main attractions on the island. Some of the scenery was absolutely breathtaking and we were fortunate to see lots of the animals in the wild and also at the fauna sanctuary. Our guide and driver Hamish absolutely made the tour by sharing his amazing knowledge of the island and the Australian flora and fauna. Would definitely recommend!

    My friend and I had a fantastic time on this three day tour! We saw wild kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, sea lions, and geckos - and we were lucky enough to see an echidna, too. The stops were all enjoyable and there was a pleasant amount of walking involved. Our guide, Gianna, was as personable as she was professional and catered expertly to every tourgoer's needs. Recommended, especially for those who have never been to Kangaroo Island before!

    The nocturnal tour was an awesome experience. The tour guide Ciara was super knowledgeable about the animals and environment, and her passion for both were evident in the way she led the tour. She helped us spot several koala, wallaby, and even an echidna, and shared details about the 2020 fire impacts and recovery. Overall excellent experience and would recommend!

    The experience on the island was exciting and very interesting. Luca was perfect in organizing the tour for both days I was there. Precise in guiding me through this experience and complete with information. Incredible in organizing stops for lunch with barbecue organized directly by him in the designated rest areas. Then he reached the top by making me an Italian coffee with the Moka!!!!!
    An experience to be recommended especially with Luce as a guide who complements the beauty of the place very well

    Wow, what an incredibly enjoyable day! Nikki made the whole day so wonderful for our family. Her enthusiasm, wealth of knowledge and love for Kangaroo Island shone through. From the accommodating side jaunts for our bird phtotography interest, to the magic of Seal Bay, the spotting of koalas and echidnas and the delicious lunch.
    We topped off our day capturing the Western Whip Bird, glad we were there to share that special moment with you Nikki! Highly, highly recommend Nikki and Luca to see all the sights of KI. A must do.

    We had so much fun with our tour guide Candice. She was the perfect
    driver of our buggy, was very knowledged about the flora and fauna, very
    friendly and funny. She showed us the spectacular nature of this
    beautiful island and provided us with an absolute highlight on our stay.
    Great ride on narrow paths, along the coast and through the amazing
    little sahara. Thank you from the german family ;-)
