This trip is a day full of nature experience. After driving up into the montains there are nice walks, not to exhausting. The nature itself is just great. THere is some driving to and from the place, however, this is acceptable. The guide even pointed out another short hike ínstead of the visit at the tourist village.

We have been on many day trips around the world and this would be by far one of the best and extremely great value for money. Only negative was the food from the winery wasn't very special but was enjoyable.

Hope that we could stay longer at all those amazing and beautiful rainforest and national park, we took just one day tour with limited time, but we still enjoyed a lot with this highlight trip, especially we had a good guide named Harrison. We also learned that what is the difference between firefly and glow worm (before that we thought they were the same species in the planet)

Absolutely wonderful trip! My husband and I really enjoyed our day visiting the rainforests and the glow worm caves. Our guide, Harrison, was hilarious and kept us entertained throughout the day. Very knowledgeable about all things Australia, especially with regards to plants and animals. Highly recommend this tour! You won't be disappointed.

Our tour guide was Harrison and delivered an informative and fun day of exploration through mountains, rainforests and caves. The reason I go on tours is to learn, and Harrison answered everything we asked with a little bit more. While a person could hire a car and explore themselves, you're missing out on the history, backstories, tourism, culture and so much more. I only had one day to tour on my trip and I'm 100 recommending this tour, absolutely guaranteed to book with the same company for a different leg!

I have visited Brisbane many times but never seen the surrounding countryside. This day tour featured stunning mountains, water falls and rain forests and a completely unique glow worm cave. Our tour guide was friendly, organised and very well versed with the area. An included very nice lunch topped off a great day. Highly recommended!

Great experience in the Gold Coast Hinterland ! Our guide was very interesting and everyone was so friendly - amazing atmosphere ! We went to Springbrook and Mount Tamborine, saw the Natural Bridge, the Scenic Rim, the Glow Worm Cave and had a bit of time to shop at Gallery Walk. We even heard a green catbird and saw a snake in the wild. I also liked that our guide told us a lot about the different species of rainforest trees !

This tour was fun and informative and we saw some lovely places that you would not be aware of without doing a tour like this. Brian, our guide and driver, was really pleasant and helpful, even managing to fit in a couple of extras that were not really on the tour as our busload of people was so good at keeping to the times! Natural bridge is beautiful, and the glow worm cave was very interesting. Lunch was nice. We would recommend this tour highly.

We had a wonderful trip, our guide, Bryan sp, was very knowledgeable and outgoing. The van was a little tight/uncomfortable for 12. We saw water dragons, python, birds heard them, more than saw them and heard kookaburra at the Tamborin Rainforest we heard cicadas like creatures - very loud the waterfalls and natural bridge were spectacular also enjoyed hearing about the rainforest and glow worms traveled by van about an hour.5 on highway and back roads lunch was at The Cedar Creek Estate Vineyard and Winery - very tasty we travelled five - 10 minutes to an area called Gallery Walk - shops, food, micro-brewery, etc. We split an ice cream at Lick's - rum raisin - very sweet but delicious! walked around a bit, then I got a mocha coffee - yum! Headed back to the city. Definitely worth the value!
