Thoroughly enjoyed this trip - and so lucky with the weather that afforded a great view of the glass house mountains and time on the beach. This was a “taster” trip of destinations included and while some travellers like more time with at certain spots, I found it great just to experience the stop offs (average an hour each except Noosa beach - a couple of hours over lunch and the ginger factory 30 odd minutes). Bruce really gave us a great commentary on places visited. Spot on with the meeting up point too and a comfortable touring mini bus. Thanks for a great day out!

Our guide Bruce was great. His commentary was informative with a nice lighter side that made us all chuckle a time or three. He was very caring of all passengers wants & needs. The whole day was very enjoyable & nice to get out of the city & see the countryside. All stops had their interesting points. The Noosa Beach was very nice.

Our day trip was amazing. Small and fun group. Driver was fun and full of info and fun facts. Changed up the times to suit our group when we were enjoying our lunch location and wanted to take more time. Great day !!!!

We had a really great day with Joel learning all about the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour and Joel’s hospitable nature.

Although it was a rainy day our guide Rob did his best to keep us entertained. Food on tour was beyond our expectations. Thankyou
