Really enjoyed the tour. Neil was very informative and it was a lovely day. Recommended for sure. Thanks heaps Neil. :-) Boat trip was also enjoyable. Mind you the staff at the ticket desk went a bit over kill with the seniors card discount but when we finally managed to get our seniors ticket we could not believe when the girl at the boat ramp asked us again to show the seniors card. That is only a little grumble as the day was fantastic.

Highly Recommended Tour to Enjoy Magnetic Island
Sep 2021
My mother and I took this tour on Monday and it was the most terrific way to see and enjoy Magnetic Island. We learnt about the history of the island and saw many unexpected Australian animals on the tour. The guide was informative and friendly and the whole day presented good value for money. We had time to enjoy lunch and a dip in the water. Highly recommended tour.

The little Rock Wallabies were lovely, the feeding of the fish, which appeared from nowhere and the butterflies were great. Neil is very knowledgeable about the Island and a very proud resident.

Best way to see Magnetic Island.
Aug 2021
Let someone else to the driving. And tell you history of the island.
You could spend days wandering around the island and not know what you are looking at!
Well worth the money.
Thanks Neil.

Affordable, relaxed, comprehensive, informative, are just some of the words that could be used to describe this tour. We had a great day and went away feeling that we had the best possible experience within the time and budget available to us.
I spent 30 years working in regional tourism development spanning 3 states and it is operators like Niel that make our regional tourism industry so great. Well done.
