Tom Blight, 31 Jan 24
We absolutely loved our day on K’Gari. Kev was an excellent guide, full of useful information and very clear with timings etc, and we felt like we got to see a lot of the island without it feeling rushed. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is short on time as a great way to take in best bits
Erwin Nimmegeers, 21 Jan 24
Nice experience with super service, picked up at our hotel and dropped there again, super good driver and guide , very informative and helpful Stopped the bus extra for our pick up when we flew and landed on K’Gari beach Bravo for driver and guide Experience 10/10
Nicole Campbell, 10 Jan 24
Great value for money - Big long day. Tour guide John was lovely and professional and extremely knowledgeable.
Susan Marstaeller, 28 Dec 23
We loved the trip without the worry about taking our own vehicle. We had adequate time at each stop. Lunch was delicious however with the price we paid it would have be nice not to pay extra for a soft drink. We appreciated that there was no welcome to country, just some aboriginal information.
