54321 Daryl was a true character, yet made our day truly enjoyable and memorable. We loved Fraser Island and it was great to have a local sharing his knowledge.

54321 We had a fabulous day with Greg. He was an energetic, interesting, very experienced driver and so knowledgeable of all the trees. We think we were so lucky to have had him as our driver, as it really made our day! It was a great snapshot of Fraser Island and we look forward to going back and exploring more. The size of the tour was a good size and not too crowded. Thank you for a great day! We will definitely recommend this tour to our friends, it was by far the better tour!

54321 Andrews is fantastic, full of energy during ALL the day, after a long day driving he still has a good face...incredible man! Just fantastic. The day is long but gives you time to get to know the highlights, lake makenzie a little bush walking, a great food and a lot and a lot of explanstions from Andrew that can drive in really hard sandy roads and gives explanations at the same time! I strongly recommend this tour and mainly this driver! Thank you very much!

54321 Had the best day. Came home with a great overview of what Fraser Island has to offer. Andrew, our guide, professionally managed the diverse needs of our multicultural group. His relaxed, organised approach kept a very full day to schedule. Well done :) Wish we all have had another day together. Atleast one customer this week could answer the trivia question. Thanks for a great day.

54321 Fabulous day great tour leaders Andrew and Greg Learnt so much about Fraser Thanks to all involved for a unique experience

54321 Can highly recommend this trip. Knowledgeable guides who love questions, fantastic scenery. Plenty of comfort stops and although it's a very relaxed day, it needs to run to schedule to follow the tides. Agree with previous review that it is a fairly bumpy ride so if you worry about travel sickness just prepare yourself. We loved it. Even managed a swim at Lake Mackenzie - in the middle of winter.

43211 After being collected from our motel joined the group to Fraser Island. Unfortunately, the cooling/heating was faulty & made for a very uncomfortable ride. The weather was also against us - so the drive along the beaches were very short & the inland trail exceedingly rough. Lunch was fantastic & so were the short breaks for morning & arvo teas. Would recommend to others

54321 5* all round. Lots of information from our guide Peder, good food, and do not miss this fantastic mystical island.

Markus Schaufelberger — 10 May, 2017

54321 Definitely 5 stars!!! This trip is super enjoyable. The experience is amazing! Hope we had more time at Lake McKenzie. The lake is breathtaking. Sand is very fine. Food is delicious. The bus drivers are very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely recommend to everybody. What an incredible experience. At the end of the day you'll definitely feel exhausted but worth it.

43211 Tour was great. Food was good. To get 5 stars need to provide a bottle of water to guests as they hop on the bus. Picked up and it was 3 and a half hours before we got a drink for morning tea, which was a drink and a biscuit so was pretty hungry by the time lunch time rolled around. Would have liked more time at Lake McKenzie.

54321 Fantastic day. Driver was very knowledgable and entertaining. Food brilliant . All in all an excellent, value for money day out.

54321 It was a great experience for me! The tour guide Tim was very friendly and he has good knowledge about the Island. The lunch was awesome, everything was very organised and yummy. And Lake McKenzie was absolutely beautiful ! For those who aren't a big fan of 4WD or get easily car sick please be prepared for these as most of the time you will be travelling on the 4WD and it's very bumpy road. In general, I still highly recommend this tour for first time visitor to Fraser or those who like a relaxing trip on the Island. Suggestions - please bring insect repellent and anti-carsick medication if you are prone to get carsick.

43211 Had a great day out at Fraser Island with an early morning pick up from Maroochydore. We watched the sun rise over the hills in the distance whilst being drive around in a 16 seater 4wd truck. We swam in the Lake mckenzie, such beautiful views, lots of photos opportunities (if you have one bring a snorkel)!! We then had a bbq in the picnic area, lots of choice of pastas and salad, with your chosen meat/non meat option. Took a walk through the rainforest where you can spot wildlife, unfortunately we didn't see any dingos, any turtles or any large birds which was a shame!! We had an issue with the bus behind us so there was a lot of stopping and starting and waiting around. The tour overall was great, it would definitely be 5 stars if we had perhaps made it to the shipwreck, and seen some wildlife! Would recommend it for a good snippet of what Frasers paradise has to offer! (Rob was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable about the island, giving us some great facts and other places to visit if we were to return!)

54321 An excellent day in a great Hummer, driven by Mark Essenhigh as our tour-guide. He was chatty, informative and well-read on a wide range of subjects. He is committed to conserving our planet and went to considerable lengths to place us in touch with Fraser Island's flora and fauna. He made a very positive impression, handling the vehicle safely and responsibly and striking a fine balance between being there for us yet remaining unobtrusive. A super experience which we would readily commend to others

54321 Today the Sunshine Coast Tafe Tourism students joined this tour. We had an AMAZING experience! The scenic drive through Cooloolah National Park was breath-taking as the sun shimmered through the early morning mist over the rolling hills, SAW A DINGO, TOUCHED AN ECHIDNA, swam in pristine Lake Mckenzie, helped push out our 4WD coach from being bogged in the sand, travelled along 75 Mile Beach with views of the massive colourful sand dunes of Rainbow Beach and walked through the Fraiser Rainforest. Not to forget that the tour guides did an amazing job at guiding us today. I recommend city-folk to escape the clutter and stress of the cement jungle and take a trip to the Frasier Coast to breath the fresh air and experience the relaxing scenery it has to offer.
