Service: We were a little late due to road work from Adelaide and down. So we called ahead and the lady I spoke to was so nice and told us they would wait for us and call us 15 minutes before departure, to check on our whereabouts. When we arrived, they even got someone to park the car onto the ferry for us.
Absolute perfect service and ride!
Product: Wonderful trip with lots of experiences. Would definitely do again!

Service: My sister and I took the tour as part of our girl's long weekend away and just loved it! It was great to see some of the local attractions and meet some of the fury locals. We also enjoyed the pace of the day and the convenience of being picked up and dropped off at our accommodation.
Product: Great day out! Fun and relaxing.
We especially loved how close we got to the seals. Neither of us expected it and it was just such a treat.

Service: Our family was with Jacqueline two days on kangaroo island. Jacqueline is amazing and deserves a FIVE STARS review but the transport for our departure to the ferry terminal was late and we had to drag our luggage and walk to the ferry terminal. Furthermore there was no more space on the luggage van and we had to carry our luggage with us on the ferry. But Jacqueline is great fantastic amazing!! She is a gem!
Product: Jacqueline is the best person to travel with on kangaroo island

Service: Glenn was a great guide -- an experienced local was very helpful and informative. The bus from Adelaide was comfortable -- made the journey tolerable. Thee ferry was ontime and clean and relatively smooth despite rough waters. The Seafront resort was clean and comfortable, The two tours were diverse, great and informative and had plenty of time at each place (may another 30 mins with the Sea Lions, and another 30 with the Koalas as the National Park. Punctual and comfortable trip back to Adelaide. Well worth the money -- will recommend to my friends. Could never have been done in a day trip -- always recommend at least two full day excursions (three nights). Thanks.
Product: Our guide Glenn, a local, made this an informative, fun and comfortable excursion.

Service: Our driver on Kangaroo Island, who was also our guide, was great. He was so informative about life on the island overall, the people, the indigenous animals and plants, it was fantastic. I loved every stop we made, each of them unique and so fascinating. I would do the trip again.
Product: Excellent Value: no inexpensive, it was well worth it. Multiple modes of transportation, all incredibly efficient, on time, beautiful buses.

Service: so nice of sealink staff, good service
Product: Good experience, nice people.

Not so good experience of lunch because of poor arrangement. There’s no any notice in advance that 7 of our families will sit with other visitors. When my 80-years-old father and 70-years-old mather arrived at the Canteen, there’re only several remaining seats separately because other seats have been occupied by other visitors. And the staff told us no other table could be used. My families had to sit respectively with other visitors.

Service: We went on the Seal Bay / Birds of Prey full day tour from Penneshaw. Driver was Mick and he did a very good job & gave an informative tour. Bus was good, lunch was excellent.... great day.
Product: Seal Bay was outstanding, Rapter-Birds of Prey was excellent, Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park was wonderful for meeting Kangaroos. The Antique barns were not worth the visit in my opinion. The Mermaid leather was interesting, Cindy Poole was OK but not of too much interest to the men. Overall a great day on the island. Without the antique stop I would have given the tour 5 stars.

Overall: 4/5
