I was on a P&O ship that came to Kangaroo Island for one day only so I decided to take a tour that gave me as many 'highlights' of the island as was possible in the limited time allowed. I am glad I chose the Odysseys tour. It was the slightly dearer one, but feedback from those who took the cheaper ones (not Odysseys) was less than impressive. It was great value for the money. Tailored to the cruise people, our tour guides and driver were great value as they knew everything and more about Kangaroo Island and the smaller group made it easy to get answers and made for a nice 'feel'.
Nikki is a passionate and involved talker and I was never bored by 'tourist' chatter. The tour took me from one end of the island to the other and I saw all the attractions that Kangaroo Island is rightly famous for with no 'hurry up'. A gourmet picnic lunch in the National Park was excellent. Rarely given, I give my best praise to Odysseys - unforgettably excellent.

By far the best tour we had in 2 weeks in Australia. The kangaroos, koalas, goannas, seals, sea lions...wildlife everywhere and some of the most unique and awesome scenery imagineable. It's hard to believe how one island can hold so much and our guide, Nikki, gave us a royal tour. Lunches were incredible...secluded settings and excellent food. Nikki was extremely knowledgeable, gave us informative and entertaining talks and was able to answer every question. Don't mean to gush, but it really was that good, as we told everyone we met afterwards. Two day tour we hated to end.

I was travelling with my husband, and grown up children (21 & 18). We all agreed that this 2 day trip was the highlight of our holiday. Expensive, but well worth it.
Our guides, Nikki & Mark, were both passionate about their island. And equally knowledgable about the flora & fauna.
Fabulous lunch on both days as well.
We all felt that Kangaroo Island was Austalia compressed. Too good to miss !

Hello frostydi

Thank you so much for your glowing review of our KI Odysseys tour. It’s wonderful to receive such positive feedback.

Nikki and Mark (and all of our tour guides) are so passionate about not only Kangaroo Island but the wildlife and nature that the island is renowned for. They all know the best spots to 'get off the beaten track' and give our guests the best experience possible. I completely agree – Kangaroo Island is definitely the best bits of Australia “condensed”.

Cheers

I had read some rather mediocre reviews of tours on Kangaroo Island but none of those complaints could be levelled at Odysseys. Numbers will fluctuate slightly with the season, but we were in a group of just two couples being shown around the island by our guide (Nikki Redman) in a four-wheel drive. Nikki is passionate about the island and its wildlife and has a particular interest in birds and mammals, so any birders would do well to try and engage her services. The small size of our group meant that the basic pattern of the tour was tailored to our particular interests.

Periods of driving and very informative commentary were interspersed with walks, time to explore on our own at sites and ample refreshments all served up at dedicated sites by Nikki.

The tour IS expensive and, coming at the end of our holiday, we had seem many of the animals before we arrived on the tour, but for anyone less inclined to explore on their own it is an ideal way to get an intense snap-shot of Australian wildlife.

The 2 days we spent in KI were awsome, thanks to Nikki and Anna, the best of guides who made us discover their island with passion. Kangaroos, koalas, birds, sealions, we met all the fauna there and also gorgeous landscapes. 2 memorable days!
