“Kadoo Tours were professional, informative, engaging and extremely good with the kids.  It was a wonderful learning opportunity. The kids thoroughly enjoyed their time and returned to class enthused and passionate about Indigenous culture and expression.  Would certainly recommend Tim, Grant and their team.”
