We had an awesome time doing the express tour with the owner Darran Wallace who picked us up from our hotel on the Gold Coast. He was super friendly and has a repertoire of slightly corny but super entertaining jokes to keep you chuckling throughout your ride! He also taught us how to throw a boomerang (check out our attempts... More

Today my family of 6 went on a private full day tour with our friendly and lovely guide Royd. He is the coolest and most knowledgeable guide I have ever come across, and it has been a great blessing to have him as our guide for the last 10+hrs! (We were pretty nervous about getting a poor guide at first... More

We had the full day tour, trek is very short between 20-30mins. After birds feeding, the guide was gone for 45mins and we were not told when and where to... More

We took to all day Tamborine/Lamington National Park tour, 8am - 5pm. This is a great tour to see the countryside and some off the beaten path bush. Our tour guide, Trent, was great, very casual and provided lots of information. Morning tea was delicious with home made scones, lunch was also very good, cooked on the bbq outdoors. The... More

A Quality Tour! I did the tour with my elderly Canadian Aunt (mid 70s). We both loved every bit of the tour. The on-time pick-up from our Hotel was appreciated. We were the last one's to be picked up and understandably the last to be dropped off. This gave us a bit of time to chat with the Tour Guide... More

We went on a full day Mount Tamborine and Lamington Park tour, and experienced some of the best views around Gold Coast, the offroad ride near the mountain bike tracks was really fun. Our guide Royd was entertaining and knowledgeable, he even played a few pranks on us throughout the tour which made it a very personable experience. We had... More

It was a good first impression to start off when I received a text msg on my cell phone saying that our 4wd pick up has arrived at our apartment. We took a private glowworm tour with Darran, the orang gila (crazy man) to Mount tamborine. It was a first night experience on a 4Wd. Darran was friendly, humourous and... More

This tour takes place in small Mercedes 4WD vehicle with about 16 seats about 4 of which are comfortable. We sat in a seat for two on the right side of the vehicle and it was very tight and uncomfortable. The 4WD portion of the trip is the most uninteresting and really not necessary. They take up this unbelievable steep... More
