We were collected punctually from our hotel and by the time the vehicle left the carpark, our guide Ross had memorised the name of every guest. He was particularly kind to the children on board, but had a moment for everyone and showed great consideration throughout the day, ensuring that each person felt like a valued guest.
The tour itself was extremely interesting and we learned much whilst enjoying the various activities and excellent luncheon. Birdcalls, flora and insect life were explained along the various walks and naturally the scenery was beautiful.
If there was a downside, it was that some of the roads were very winding and hilly, presenting a little problem for those with a tendency towards travel sickness, but every effort was made to ensure all passengers were comfortable.
Ross did a magnificent job and worked very hard to ensure we all had an exceptional day. Thank you, Ross.

We had a great time on this trip. Trent was so knowledge and friendly and it was so nice to see a different side of the Gold Coast that we had not experienced before. Well worth the money for a great day out

We had a great day. Trent, our driver, was very informative, friendly and accommodating. Great fun, awesome scenery. We would highly recommend Southern Cross 4WD tours to everybody. Looking forward to doing it again on our next visit to the Gold Coast.

We had a very enjoyable day around Lamington and Tamborine Mountain. Our guide, Roy, was a very friendly and engaging personality who brought to life the way the area had been developed over the years and highlighted the development of the national park structure and how it works with local landowners. The highlights were the off-road section where we spotted wild koalas. Later in the day we saw kangaroos and wallabies and then we fed the wild parrots on the O'Reilly property, finishing off with a visit to a bat colony. The pace of the tour was good with ample time in-between visits for tea and lunch. We highly recommend that anybody who visits this part of Queensland should try this tour.

We had a great time. The tour guide was professional while, at the same time, being very entertaining. The itinerary was exactly what we were looking for. We have no hesitation in recommending this tour.

had excellent guide, Roid. Made the whole day special , made special effort to find as many animals as possible, took extra time to see everything. Cooked great lunch. Really enjoyed the 4WD, sometimes 4wd is not even close to 4wd experience but this one was great. We have been 4WD trips for many many years. As husband is deceased did not think I would get to do that again. Just one fun day

An outstanding trip with an interesting and informative guide! Our guide made the trip fun and interesting and he went out of his way to show us a great time! And, as advertised, they picked us up at our Gold Coast condo! Don't miss this trip!

My wife and I absolutely enjoyed this tour! Our tour guide was excellent, knowledgeable, humorous and made the whole trip really fun! The sights and views from the mountain top was stunning and the breakfast scones and BBQ lunch were really good. We rate this number 1 among the tours we did not that the others were no good - they were great too. Highly recommended! Well worth it!

We saw the real Australia here. We had a friendly tour guide who was very helpful. Lunch was also good. We learned to crack whips and throw boomerangs properly. I would definitely recommend this.

Our tour guide is Tim from southern cross tour. He is very humorous and knowledgeable. My kids like him very much.

Overall experience good. The kids are enjoying the boomerang throwing and bird feeding session very much. We got roller coaster ride on the road as well.

Tim also shared some basic knowledge of the jungle, termites etc. He managed the time well

Our trip leader, Tim, was very nice and full of information. During the bus ride, Tim told us about the history of the area. Once at Tamborine Mountain, Tim took his time to explain the nature around us. The lunch was very, very good - high quality and generous portions. Once at O'Reilly's, the tree top walk was unescorted and we were told to return to the bus in only 20 minutes. I would have liked more time during the tree top walk. This tour covers a lot of sights in one day, so you will spend hours in the bus. The time in the bus is broken up through out the day, and the bus is a nice Mercedes. I liked the relaxing pace of the tour and the variety of sights.

Terrific tour that gave us a good overview of the area. Keith was an outstanding tour guide! I personally wish there was more walking or hiking, but otherwise it was an excellent tour.
