This was a unique tour. We were picked up from our hotel and were the only two people on the tour. It was a neat and tidy mini bus. Whilst you could be apprehensive about being the only two, the driver (tour guide) put us at ease pretty soon. There was rain in Brisbane that night too, but Brisbane was still warm. He took us to see many sights around the town and then we had a picnic at Kangaroo point overlooking the city. This was well thought out and a great experience. The tour ended at Mt Coot-tha Lookout with an even higher up and better long distance look out over Brisbane. The driver did take us to an extra sight. The pub where the women chained themselves to a bar because women weren't allowed to drink in a bar some decades ago. Needless to say they got their own way after a public outcry and women were allowed to drink thereafter. The tour guides knowledge of the history of the town was really good. This is an ideal tour for business people visiting Brisbane because during the day you have conferences and business meetings and you don't have time to explore Brisbane. The only option you have is during the night and this enabled us to see the maximum amount of Brisbane possible, something we wouldn't have been able to do without someone with the knowledge of Brisbane. And really it would have probably been a lot more expensive to get a taxi around to see all these things and with an experienced tour guide and picnic thrown in, it was really good value for money.

We were taken to Tamborine to view the falls and rainforests there, as well as seeing glow worms in a cace, we had a wonderful day. Lunch was spent in Tamborine, good food and also a wonderful wine tasting place as recommend by Brian.

It was a small group, and Brian really knew his stuff about the local area. We were so impressed we were going to do the Gold Coast tour with him the next day but ran out of time as we had to fit in koala cuddling instead!

I had never been to the North Stradbroke Island and thought that my first attempt might benefit from a bit of local knowledge. I was a bit concerned about what the tour group might be like but shouldn't have been. We saw Whales, Dolphins and Kangaroos and the swim in Brown Lake is well worth it. The entire adventure from start to finish was AMAZING. Shane the tour guide was excellent and made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Cant recommend this trip more.

An great day out at this lovely island off the coast of Brisbane. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel by the guide, Brian. He was excellent company and enthusiastically showed us the best of the island including fabulous beaches, countryside and wildlife. Good value for money.

My friends in the UK had recommended this company. I wanted to go to Stradbroke which is the tour they had done and highly recommended it. Unfortunately I left it too late to book and couldn't get on so went on there day tour to Mt Tamborine.

After spending nearly 30 hours getting to Brisbane from the UK this was what I needed. Fairly short minibus trip and then we went straight into a hike through the rainforest down to Cameron falls.. The guide was excellent, the forest amazing, We did two more hikes and saw 3 waterfalls in the day.

We also had some time at the tourist area where you had a good choice of places to eat. I only had a few days in Oz before heading to NZ so the chance to do some souvenir shopping was a plus. Tour also included a guided tour through some Glow Worm caves. Never seen these before so was real cool.

Excellent finish to the day was time to enjoy an ale at a fantastic pub that overlooked the Gold Coast. Even had some kangaroos hopping about and kookaburra's waiting to steal the food off peoples plates.

Great tour. Good value. Worth doing. I booked direct by just calling them and the office was easy to deal with. Picked me up at my hostel.
