Had such a fantastic experience from beginning to end. It was a great way to experience the best of what Noosa and the Sunshine Coast had to offer. I only wish there was more time to spend at the markets as there was so much to see and do and time goes so quickly. Overall I highly recommend this tour to everyone,and can't praise the tour guide enough for being so friendly and informative during the day trip. Thank you once again,and I will definitely let any of my friends that are visiting Brisbane know how much I highly recommend this tour.

The Tour was professional, commenced promptly and with traffic holdups was delayed in our return rather than shortening the Tour. There was an intimate group of friendly people on board a very clean tidy 13 seater van :) Brian’s commentary was interesting and demonstrated that he knew the area well. We enjoyed our day and would not hesitate to recommend this Tour to others.

What a lovely day. Brian was friendly and informative throughout the day. The rainforest was very beautiful So much of the day was so memorable....the markets and Noosa were wonderful. This day trip is such a great jam packed day and was thoroughly enjoyable!

Beautiful sites and a friendly guide. Fantastic day out!

A great way of getting good flavour of Sunshine coast
