“Fun filled day with an awesome tour guide!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Royd, royd, royd... what can I say? You've made my day from the time u picked us till the very end of the tour. Royd is a very knowledgeable tour guide with quirky sense of humour. Providing information and facts about plants, animals, places, u name it, he would be able to answer you. Sharp eyes... my family was very lucky to see 2 kinds of wild wallabies, kangaroos, and koala! Much more satisfying than going to currumbin to hug one! Thank u Royd for such a lovely tour.

“Amazing Experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

My Family of 8 went for a 1 day private tour. We had an amazing day experiencing an off-road drive up to the Mt, saw some wildlife animals and nice scenery. Chris our guide for the day is knowledgeable and funny. He told us a lot about the area and the history as well. We will definitely be back for more of the off road experience... Thanks Chris and team from Southern Cross 4WD Tours for making our holiday a memorable one.

“Wonderful, wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

My family of 5 visited the Gold Coast just last week, and I HAD to write this review after arriving home. We had an amazing time at the nocturnal glowworm tour, thanks to Darran who was our wonderful guide. He was lovely and entertaining, from the time he picked us up at our hotel and throughout the entire walk in the rainforest. He has amazing knowledge of the wildlife and also the coast, so if you're visiting, do ask him for some secret tips! The tour of the forest was exceptional and the glowworms splendid. This is a MUST for anyone visiting the coast! You won't regret it. Thank you Darran for such a brilliant night - my mom is still laughing about your pranks. Cheers!

“Execllent!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I booked via email and had great communication, then when we got to the gold coast Chris our tour guide picked us up from the hotel and we were off for the day.
Everything was brilliant, from Chris's commentary to his amazing bird knowledge. Morning tea and Lunch were great, plenty of options and yummy salads.
The bird life, bugs, critters and kangaroos were great to see.
Thank you for an amazing day Chris. My girls and I loved every minute of it! cheers the Kiwi Girls

“Sourthern Cross 4WD Mount Tamborine Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Dear Stephanie,
Many thanks to you and your team; while in Australia last week we contacted you, and you booked my Wife Olga and I for the Southern Cross 4X4 Mount Tamborine Tour.
Our Driver Chris gave us all a very special day; we all had a really good time. Chris’s local, and wildlife knowledge was exceptional and he brought this over in a fun and very interesting way.
We had lovely Tea & Scones; a very excellent lunch! And Chris’s lessons with the Boomerangs were wonderful fun.
We were very sad to come to the end of this wonderful day; even then Chris gave good advice and put us in touch with “Whales in paradise” who provided us with wonderful entertainment the next day!
We can’t thank you all enough for your teams effort; advice and service;
From two VERY happy customers; again our thanks;
Laurence & Olga Dyke
