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

I had the best time on my Southern Cross 4WD tour! The tour guide was really nice and informative and seemed to love his job! The location we went to (Natural Bridge) was absolutely stunning and there were some really amazing lookouts as well. As an added bonus it includes a delicious scone and coffee in between the trips!!

Rising high up in the mountains. Evening visit to Tamborine mountain for a 4WD track up the mountain - you won't see a lot, which makes it even more exciting: a roller coaster in the dark and no need for cue-ing for the rides in the Gold Coast theme park. Quick evening supper stop at a nice little restaurant -... More

We had a great time on our tour. Our tour guide was Ross, he really went out of his way to make everyone comfortable, he remembered everyone's name and where everyone was from. Very informative about everything, from birds, spiders and trees. The BBQ lunch was delicious, we would definitely recommend. Very beautiful countryside.

Our family had the best time! Our guide Trent made everything fun and we enjoyed the boomerang session. Learned the different kinds of animals living in the rainforest. Was our first time in Australia and glad we did this tour because we didn't have to worry about anything. ☺️👌🏻

My husband and I did the Rainforest and Wildlife Tour with our 6 month old son. Both the company in the run up and our guide Chris could not have been more accommodating - they provided a car seat, were optimistic about us bringing our son and Chris was thoughtful throughout the day of our needs and checking in to...

Just back from a great day, Tuesday, 18 October, 2016 at Mt Tambourine with our tour guide Ross from Southern Cross Tours. Great host and operator for his company who should be glad they have him. Thoroughly recommend this tour the ability to get on/off and follow your own interests makes it special. Nothing was too much trouble for Ross... More
