“A great personalised way to see Rainbow Beach”
“Being a single mum with two daughters and without a 4wd I was looking for a tour that would give my children the experience of beach 4wd but without loosing that personal feel, and I found it. From their vast knowledge of the history to the current day environment our tour guides had it covered. A lovely relaxed morning tea was supplied and at moments you even forgot you were with strangers as it was such a personal experience. we had a great day and the fact we could drive to the top of the lighthouse was a major bonus. The view is amazing and we were treated to a pod of dolphins and surfacing sea turtles. The half day trip was well worth the money and gave myself and children a real Rainbow Beach experience.”

“We did a day tour which leaves from Noosa. However Steve willingly picked us up from our accommodation in Mooloolaba. We had the best day ever. Relaxed, friendly, knowledgable, flexible with the tour, willingly stops for photos. The food was lovely. Steve did a magnificent job. Not only did we see the coloured sands, double island point lighthouse (without the strenuous walk as we were driven) but also got to experience the stunning Clear Water road going through the rain forests and viewing the Satinay (turpentine trees) which are only found on Fraser Island and the Cooloola Coast as well as red canyon. This sure was the highlight of our stay. This day is a must for not only International tourists, but something all Austrslians should experience/see. We couldn’t recommend this experience enough and hope to get my mother (elderly, and won’t thank me for saying this) to do this tour again with us next time she visits.”
“A fun experience”
“It was a terrible day weather wise but this tour didn’t disappoint at all. We got to travel all over the place in a comfortable and dry 4WD and learned a lot about the area that we wouldn’t have otherwise. The driver knew a lot about the area and was very happy to answer any questions we had. Considering the length of the tour, distance covered, and information received, the price was an absolute bargain.”
“Breath Taking Experience”
“I enjoyed this tour very much, the 40 mile beach drive was out of this world, the views from the lighthouse were breath taking, rainbow beach was just wow and the coloured sands was amazing. I would recommend this trip and the tour guide Glen is cery friendly and full of information. I would do this tour again :)”
