We started early. Picked up by 7:30 am. The weather was sunny. Started in Surfer Paradise, the guide gave good description about what's happening around there and along the way up to Mt Tamborine. Very enjoyable tour. During the walking tour in the rainforest, the guide has made it very interesting and given very good commentary on the trees and... More

A full day Tour, with the 4WD goat climb, great tours of the rain forest, an excellent lunch stop at Spring Gully and scenic views. Our driver Tim was entertaining and kept folks moving and stopped when we came upon wildlife.

My partner and I booked in for the Natural Bridge Springbrook tour. We had Royd as our tour guide. He was very informative and friendly. Scenery was great and something we won't be forgetting for a long time.

It was a great night to see glow worms. The tour was lead by Blake and he was full of information, we walked away knowing more about the rainforrest. The FWD ride was fun, and worth every minute. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get in touch with nature.

I did the Springbrook Natural Bridge tour. This is a good option if you only have a short time for a tour and want to get a taste of the rainforest. Believe me, it is worth your time. It's a magnificent place to visit, even for an afternoon. The natural bridge is beautiful, as is the walk to the Best... More

What a fantastic company. From booking with Stephanie in the office from home to the driver/tour guide Royd to another driver Chris who took the half day party back to our hotels. We were on the half day Mount Tambourine tour and it was magnificent. Beautiful views, great history told, and the stop over for morning tea WOW. Traditional home... More

A very well Organised tour, fitting in what you want to do at mount tambourine well within the half day. So whether it is bush walk to see the waterfall, or visit to lavender gardens, Sunday market, tree-top walk, it is very well-coordinated. Different people in the group may have their list of things to do, and this are all... More

Our family of 4, 2 boys aged 5 & 2, joined the glow worm night tour. As we weren't staying in surfers paradise, we joined the tour along the way. Communications were prompt and directions were clear. We were picked up by Tim, who was a wealth of information about the area and the rainforest that was introduced to us.... More
