Looking for something a little different, we opted for a Hummer Safari 4WD Tour with Scenic Hinterland. What a great choice. From the moment Phil picked us up in the Hummer in the morning to dropping us off in the afternoon, our group of 5 laughed & learned. Hummer Phil, our diver/guide, was a natural at his job, keeping us... More

Our tour was the glow worms and natural arch night tour. We didn't actually get to go on this tour as the company called us to cancel at around 11am on the day of the tour. They didn't have the "numbers" to run the tour. We had prepaid for the tour in advance so we received the money back no... More

Dear Stephanie Giumelli, Unfortunately it is stated that ALL tours on the Gold Coast (and the world to be honest) do need minimum numbers to operate. The evening Glow Worm Tour is one of our most popular tours but unfortunately not on your chosen night. We did give you ample time to make alternate plans and did suggest alternate days... More

We just had the best holiday on the Gold Coast ever! Recently had 4 tours with Scenic Hinterland and all of them were really great! The best was the Hummer Safari. It was the greatest experience! :) We had Phil as our tour guide and boy, were we lucky! We had VIP service, and a lot of value added nuggets... More

My sister and I did the glow worms evening tour and without our tour guide (Keith) it wouldn't have been half as good! He definitely added 110% from the moment he picked us up until the very end; giving detailed information about every aspect of our drive. We would definitely recommend the glow worm evening tour to anyone who was... More

The trip was well organised however I feel that a coffee/tea stop in the morning would have been advisable for holiday makers, as well as advice on wearing comfortable shoes and carrying water. Otherwise everything we saw was terrific, the walking parts were not difficult and the scenery spectacular. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly and the pick up/drop off... More

The places we stopped at had breathtaking views and we even got to see two pods of dolphins at Post Hastings.The Crystal Castle was amazing and the... More

I did 3 tours, tropical fruit world, Mt tambourine and O reilly.Overall the trips were well organised and planned with time saving strategies for lunch , which was good. However, I would have rated as only one star, as on the first 2 trips the drivers were grumpy and rather rude. I am giving 3 stars thanks to Barry!! to... More

I enjoyed a great Saturday in the Hinterland, Keith (tour guide) was very knowledgeable and very friendly and easy to talk to. We visited Mt tambourine as well as O'Riellys National Park and an alpaca farm. We got lots of information about nature and the evolution of the place.
