Amazing way to see the Gold Coast and enjoy so many different parts of it! Attentive staff and they are also very informed! Beautiful scenery. Perfect for those traveling without a rental car or who prefer to let someone else do the driving!

If you want a drive to see the buildings and how the rich people live in surfers paradise without the hassle of walking everywhere the drive and cruise was great. The scenery of Mt Tamborine was awesome, as was the shopping at gallery walk if you didn't want to go to the waterfall.
