Travelling with Kangaroo Island Odysseys

Our month-long trip in Australia was an absolutely wonderful experience and whenever we are asked ‘what was the highlight’ of our trip was, our 3 day Kangaroo Island Odysseys tour is the first thing that comes to mind!

We had a great time bouncing around the island with you, with so much to see and learn and absorb, and you were a very gracious, professional, and delightful host and guide! It was a privilege and a pleasure to learn from you so much about your corner of the world.
