Is this trip right for you?

A great tour that does justice to everything KI has to offer, and that is a huge amount. Our tour guide Kevin's local knowledge, and love of and for the environment is the icing on the cake and a real asset to Intrepid. So glad I chose this tour a not a brief 1- or 2-day stopover.

We really enjoyed our KI trip. Small, fun group who got on well. Our tour guide Kevin was brilliant - he knew so much about the island and was a fabulous guide who went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time.

MARIUS · Traveled November 2023
This tour was well planned, the accommodation was fine and the guide was very knowledgeable and considerate of everyone. One recommendation - provide a small speaker and microphone for the guides. It was difficult or impossible for some of us, especially those toward the back of the van, to hear his comments on the locations as we were travelling.

Intrepid's Kangaroo Island trip was a wonderful experience in nature. It's a relatively quiet region in villages and on the road which we welcomed. The Island has a diversity of amazing coastal landscapes and abundant animals in the wild if you know where to look as our guide did. We were pleasantly surprised with the array of quality and creative meals restaurants and cafes, particularly breakfasts. All this to the credit of our knowledgeable Intrepid Guide.
