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

We had a two day private tour with Rebecca Bennett as our guide and saw everything that we had hoped to see and a whole lot more. We would not have seen 10% of this if we had tried to do it on our own. Rebecca (Bec) was extremely knowledgeable as well as being a charming person to be with.... More

If you really want to have fun and enjoy your experience on Kangaroo Island, this is the way to go! Rather than going in a large group, small groups are the norm and you visit "less touristy" places that large groups can't go to.

Gavin, the first day and Gavin and Scot the second day gave a great tour of a fantastic island. The two lunches were very good and unique. The sights were fantastic. In general we saw the normal sites- seal lions on the beach and the fur seals frolicking. The vistas were spectacular. We did some koala spotting and came very... More

Hi Guys, Thanks for the review. Could you please email reservations@wildernesstours.com.au when you get time. I just want to investigate why you had a different vehicle as this is something that we so rarely do. I just need your dates of travel to the island so I can pull your file and check the diary. I can only assume something... More
