Being from NZ I wasn't expecting too much, but WOW! Our guide was humorous, knowledgable and friendly. He found super-large snails, trapdoor spiders, ring-tail possums, snakes ... and gave us a great experience in the bush. It was followed by a hot drink and cake (supper) at a local cafe. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour!

I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this tour but wow! It was brilliant!. Our tour guide Duffy was terrific, his commentary and knowledge of the rainforest and it's inhabitants was amazing and his sense of humour kept us all entertained. The highlight of the evening were the glow worms! We were lucky as there were so many... More

Our guide Duff is very friendly, knowledgeable in knowing where to find the animals and also constantly hunting out to show us the wild animals while we were on our way and walking in the rainforest. We enjoy the desserts, the exciting ride, the night view of GC, starry nights and the rainforest walk to see the glow worms. Thumbs... More

As a family of four we went on this evening glow worm tour. Tim our guide was fantastic. Friendly, funny, helpful and a wealth of knowledge. We loved the 4wding in the forest in the night. The view across to the coast was gorgeous. Supper (cake and coffee) were tasty. The very best part of the tour was the night... More

For our last outing prior to returning to Brisbane, we signed up for the Rainforest & Wildlife tour...just the right amount of sitting, standing, and walking about. The food was very good, at the Morning Tea, and I would have paid a chunk of money, for the lovely biscuit/scone recipe!! But the BBQ lunch at the private property was just... More

Yesterday I had a wonderful and interesting day traveling with this company. I loved Mt Tamborine (could have stayed longer). The overseas tourists were great company and I felt safe and well informed with Ross and his Assistant Aaron. Morning tea and BBQ lunch was a great bonus. Value for money. Thank you and best wishes to you all.

Great trip that my Mum and her friend went on - they did the half-day. Chris the guide was fantastic and really made the trip special. The tour group was small and they managed to fit in a lot in the 4 hours.

I have recently taken myself and my 8yr old son on the night glow worm tour and we had so much fun, the whole experience was great from when they picked us up to when we got back. On our way up to Tamborine we took a short cut on an off road 4WD track and stopped for a hot... More
