I was very disappointed with this tour. When I booked this tour online, the Natural Bridge/Arch was included. My confirmation email, also states this. (Even looking under this tour on the website tonight, for Tour 9, still has Evening Glow worm tour and Natural Arch, only the description now omits this). The dinner at Nicolini's Restaurant was rushed and uncomfortable.... More

Our very knowledgeable guide Keith took us up Springbrook Mountain to visit a small, private facility where we saw glow worms in their rainforest environment. Coming from the UK, this was a unique opportunity to see and learn about these fascinating creatures. The second part of the tour took us to the Springbrook Observatory where we were met by the...

Whilst holidaying in Surfers my wife and I decided to use a tour company and booked three tours with Scenic, Goff's Harbour, Tropical Fruit World/Currumbin Sanctuary and the Australia Zoo. We enjoyed all trips. We had Barry for all the trips and found him very friendly and helpful as my wife has a mobility problem at the moment. The buy... More

The 3 tourist guides - Dave, John and Lance were polite and were adequate in providing us informative tours. We enjoyed particularly the Hummer Tour led by Dave, who was very entertaining. However, we were pretty disappointed with the Glow worm cave tour that came with the dinner option. The dinner was not in the cave as what we had... More

Dear Jill, I am absolutely pleased that you enjoyed our Day Tours whilst holidaying on the Gold Coast. I am sorry they you were led to believe that dinner was served in the Glow Worm Cave. I am not too sure how you portrayed that idea. It is not listed anywhere on or websites or brochures…………. The restaurant we go... More

Having been to Queensland a number of times my friend and I where keen to see something new. We had a wonderful day exploring the Tambourine Rainforest, there where many beautiful walks, views and waterfalls. It did rain during the day, however nothing a poncho can't fix and it made for lovely photos as the colours of the forest glisten... More

It was a wonderful day we spent in forest with lovely rainy weather. Keith who was our tourist guide was not only very informative in Australian history, geology, and biology but also was an excellent 4 W driver and very funny and social. I recommend any one who plans in going to this trip to book with Keith.

The tour definitely did not meet our expectations given the fact that the cost was close to $100 each. We were expecting a lot more based on other tours we have been on ( different companies) most exceed our expectations. I think it would have been cheaper to get a taxi for the day as nothing other than the bus... More

I went on the Hummer tour 11 on July 31st (H2 HUMMER, Springbrook, Waterfalls & Mt Tamborine LUXURY Safari) with Dave as our guide. We had a great time. Dave was very knowledgeable about nature and the area. Dave is also an expert in snakes which, I personally, am glad we didn't see any off. Everything was as describe and... More

Last week I did a mountain tour with Scenic Tours and had a wonderful day. The tour guide, Doug or Dave, had a wealth of knowledge of nature and shared it with us in an amusing way, he is a snake catcher but we didn't see a snake. My husband and I would recommend these tours to anyone. Jennifer.
