We all had a wonderful time on Joel's tour. His knowledge and the places he shared with us were awesome. The food, tastings and sites of the Noosa surrounds were spectacular and showcased the best offerings that you would not find on your own. Joel was the perfect host on this tour and the bus was comfy and air conditioned. It was obvious the passion Joel has for what he does and it makes for an excellent and informative day - could not recommend this enough. Thanks Joel.
