6 people in a Range Rover Discovery and we saw a good part of the Island and lots of wildlife. We started at Seal Bay and got there before the crowds. We got very close to the sea lions and very cute they are. Undisturbed by our presence. Then a welcome coffee and biscuits at a stop before moving of... More

We (5 adults in the family) booked a one day tour of KI island, flying out from Adelaide and back on that day. A wonderful experience. Notwithstanding the brief time on KI we saw an amazing amount of key sites, wonderful scenery and many animals. We had our own very comfortable vehicle which can take 6 passengers and we were...

My sister and I booked 3 days of private tours with KI Wilderness Tours. We had two different guides, both who live on KI and obviously have great affection for the place and the animals that live there. We were very interested in seeing as much wildlife (including birdlife) as possible, and our guides brought us to several spots that... More

We had booked a 3day tour which covered almost all of the island and had the same guide (Gavin) on days 1 & 3 who was brilliant with only 4 of us in the Discovery on each of those days. His knowledge was really extensive and over the 2 days managed to find us all the wildlife in the wild.... More

We spent four days on KI as the start to our Australia vacation. The attraction of KI was the wildlife and scenery which we had read about - and boy did it live up to that! If you want to see koala's and kangaroo's in their natural habitat, to see sea lions, seals, echidnas, iguanas, wedge tail eagles, parrots, cockatoos... More

This company uses very good guides/drivers often native islanders in Land Rover Discoveries for 4 or 6 people. The day trips are well planned but flexible and an excellent lunch is provided and indeed on one day cooked on the barbecue by the guide. Because the island is big, quite a long time is spent in the vehicle but all... More

We had a one day tour (just the two of us) with tour guide Ken. What a superb day. Ken was encyclopaedically knowledgeable about the flora, fauna, history and culture of Kangaroo Island. He led us on trip that took in a rich selection of the things to see around the island, cooked us a wonderful lunch and answered all... More

I feel it is way overpriced for what you get. Didn't get to do/see all that was advertised on website. Sea lions were the highlight for me. Tour guide was good, but really if you are Australian you have seen so many kangaroos and koalas and driven through so much bush, that it is nothing new really, so best for... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Feedback is always a wonderful help for any business. We always recommend to all clients, whether Aussies or international to experience at least 2 days here. 1 day is not nearly enough. You are also correct in that the animals are a major highlight for out International guests. This is... More

We (group of 5) were lucky enough to have Jim as our personal guide for 2 full days exploring the wonders of KI. He went out of his way to show us all the great nature sites of the island, but also some of the quirky (i.e., the 'post office' at Vevonne Bay). He made sure we got our share... More

My husband and I did the 4 day tour of Kangaroo Island with KIWT. We had Scott as our personal guide for 3 days (lucky us- during the winter season we didn't have to share our tour with anyone else for those 3 days), and shared Bill on the last day with another 2 travelers. KI is a fairly big... More
