Stumbled on this cruise after we were nearly roped into one of the 'Wyndam' cruises (beware!!!!!!) Anyway, we had a lovely couple of hours cruising around the Gold Coast on the morning tea tour. The guide was great, and we enjoyed looking at all the amazing homes. Pretty basic morning tea, but good value for money.

The tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and the boat was clean and comfortable. It was interesting to see the houses that face... More

I did this cruise twice last week and found both times to be pleasant and interesting. The lunch cruise is ridiculously good value at only A$29. The food is simple but fresh and there was plenty of it; the serving bowls were constantly topped up by staff. The morning tea cruise was arguably even better value at just $20; and... More
