I booked a half day afternoon tour on the first day of arrival and it is a great start and time well spent for my group of 8. We thoroughly enjoy every minute of it. Whatever good comments about this tour has already been spell out by other members. What I would like to say is this, if you don't... More

This is a great way to get away from the hustle of the coast. You ride in a luxury vehicle into the mountains where you have fantastic views and a guide full of local knowledge. The food and venues along the way are outstanding. This tour has the right balance of driving, site seeing and activities. Must do tour.

A great day from pickup to drop off. Our guide (Royd) had a great sense of humour, knowledge, and stories to tell. The scenery and walks were amazing with wonderful morning tea and lunch. A relaxed fun day out with a range of experiences to enjoy. Take some comfortable walking shoes, water and the camera is a must. I will... More

Scones warm and straight out if the oven, very comfortable vehicle, great knowledge from our guide Royd, amazing grilled fish for lunch. Good fun trying boomerang throwing and whip cracking. Definitely recommend moonshine. Good tour without rushing from place to place. Bring a bottle of water

This is a great day out. You are fully looked after through out the day. It's an excellent way to see the rain forest

After taking up so many tours with different tour agencies, I think most of the day tours in Australia cost about AUD120 which exclude meals. Why do I said that this tour is value for money, because they provide breakfast and also a hearty lunch prepared on the spot in their head office. The places we went are really scenic... More

This tour is one of the best we have been on. A full day tour with everything included. Pick up and drop off at where ever you are staying. It includes all entrance fees, morning tea and lunch. There are lots of pit stops which is very good for old farts like us with weak bladers. Royd, our tour driver... More

What a fab full day tour this was. Was a little concerned as we took our 7 year old son. But it was full of fun,sightseeing, whip cracking, along with a great lunch. Everything provided, so whilst the tour does cost a bit - it's well worth it. Definitely value for money. Our tour leader was Royd - and he... More

Overall, our party of five (two couples and one elderly) enjoyed the day tour. Neville was a great guide and proved to be very knowledgeable. There was even an incident that he had to give up his "fish" to us, as someone else swapped beef for fish (our lunch order, where we could choose between chicken, beef or fish). Great... More

Dont let the cost affect your decision in booking a full day private tour. I would say money well spent when me, my brother and my boyfriend decides to go on this tour. Firstly, our tour guide Royd was a excellant. We were kinda of late in the mornings but royd was patiently waiting at grosvenor beachfront patiently for us.... More
