This tour company is wonderful! We spent a full day with our driver Keith (who is one of the best guides we have ever had). Up Mount Tambourine on a fire trail in a comfy 4WD vehicle. Walk in the rain forest, an Aussie BBQ lunch, wine tasting, etc. everything on time, well thought out, brilliantly executed. Keith made the... More

We did the day tour to Mt Tambourine and Lamington National Park. Our driver Ross was excellent and very pleasant. We had a number of guests from overseas, and Ross made them feel welcome and included them in all discussions. You visit the beautiful Mt Tambourine and then onto a lovely lunch. You then head to Lamington National Park for... More

We visited Mt Tambourine National Park on Christmas Day. Our driver, Chris, is very knowledgeable. The kids enjoyed the thrill of the bumpy rides. Was amazed with the sightings of glow worms, spiny anteater (echidna), tree gecko, camel crickets (?) and toads. Should have also booked the day tour.

We bought our tour from a tour company in surfers paradise. On the brochure it was advertised as a cave tour, which is why we purchased the tickets, with the promise of caves and worms. We were picked up at 6, and dropped home at 1017. We spent 6-730 driving around picking up other guests. 730-800 getting up the mountain.... More

My friend and I took the glow worm tour. Our Driver and tour guide was Ross! He was very energetic and super nice guy! As we only arrived to Gold coast 1 hour before the tour, we didn't get to chance to eat anything all day so Ross kindly arranged some entrees at the Greek restaurant for us. We had... More

We booked the glow worm and springbrook tours. Both of it were really nice and fun for us. The guides were knowledgable and friendly. Loved how we had breaks in between with lovely desserts and drinks. The tour guides were knowledgable which made the tours rich in information about gold coast. Would definitely recommend it to others.

Really great day enjoying the other side to the Gold Coast! My driver was Blake and he was funny and informative. I joined the full day tour and was pleasantly surprised with all that was included. Bird feeding, boomerang throwing, barbecue lunch and peaceful rainforest walk and tree top canopy walk- just to name a few! Drive up in the... More

I booked with 4 different tour operators while on the Gold Coast and this was by far the best. Our guide, Chris, had an infectious love of Australia - a good storyteller with lots of knowledge to share. For the first time, after many weeks, I actually 'got' Australia. The tour bus was comfortable and fit for purpose, and the... More

What an amazing experience! Highly recommend the Glow Worm tour. This is an excellent company and activity to donor all! They took care of all the arrangments. Starting from the ease of booking to the return transfers in the awesome 4WD bus and dessert and coffee at a delightful mountain side restaurant. What a great way to see the amazing... More
