Excellent full day tour that I would highly recommend
Great full day tour. 6.10 am pick up for bus from Adelaide to Cape Jervis was right on time. Pleasant ferry trip to Kangaroo Island then picked up by coach for a 9 hour tour of the island including a very nice lunch. Our tour guide Scot new everything about the island and explained everything to us. Got back to our Adelaide apartment at 10.30 pm so a very full day tour.
