A well organised tour, comfortable bus, and, best of all, an excellent driver, who has a wealth of knowledge, imparted in a humorous and entertaining manner. Well Done!

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.

A pretty good deal overall. Bob, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable of area and local history which made the sightseeing even more fun. We had a great time getting to know Bob and he accommodated most of our photographic needs. I would recommend this tour for anyone that wanted to see and learn more about the area.

Really enjoyed the canal cruise and Natural Bridge at Springbrook N.P. It was a nice drive in a rural area, too. Did not like the fact that even though the ad said we would be picked up from local Gold Coast hotels, we had to make our way to a central pickup point, miles away, which added considerably to the price of the tour.

Fantastic in comparison with Bryon Bay, Honey Tasting & Tropical Fruit World tour. The driver Mick was awesome, knowledgeable, friendly, sympathetic & talkative.

A good tour if you do not have the time or the means to travel to the Gold Coast on your own.

I decided to do the tour because I didn't have enough time to see the east coast. It was really worth doing it because I could see Surfer's Paradise and the Gold Coast. Mt. Tambourine was okay, but could have been better.

We decided like many people that we needed to see Surfer's Paradise. In retrospect this may have been a mistake. There is nothing wrong with this trip or the company running it! The place itself is very much a seaside resort and when we visited,"the schoolies" were in town so sections of the sea front and some roads were gated off by large metal barriers and there was no desire to stay for long. The cruise along the Broadwater Canal is interesting, particularly if you are into smart houses and house valuations. The stop at Natural Bridge is picturesque and must be very spectacular when there is more water in the streams. On the walk, you need to stay up with the driver whose commentary tended to start before the slower moving participants actually reached him. A perfectly adequate trip but not our favourite.
