54321 Bret was a really good drver. The bumpy roads and the rockn roll music were perfect. He told us everything about the island and it's nature. People who are sick by driving bus should take some sickness pill before starting. It is a funny adventure with cool places to see and stay. Thank you

32121 Toyr was good but guide/driver not friendly Was travelling on my own and have never experience no one talking Would have like to ask a few questions on things but felt so uncomfortable to do so Was miserable by the time I got back to Hervey bau

Daniel Gothe — 15 March, 2019

54321 We had a fantastic experience on our 1 day Fraser Island Tour! Our guide, Bret, was great! He is very knowledgeable - we nearly hired our own 4x4 but are so glad that we didn’t after hearing all of the interesting information and stories Bret shared. The day went smoothly and we saw everything we wanted/expected to see! Would definitely recommend!

Franco Fratazzi — 6 January, 2019

54321 We had an amazing day! Greg was wonderful, knew a lot about the island and has lots of humour. He also tried to avoid the big tourist coaches. We saw 3 dingos and some skippys on the way in. Would recommend it.

Jean-lou — 29 November, 2018

54321 Fabulous tour. A full day filled with wonderful information and plenty of sights. Fraser Island is a island of contrasts and the tour highlighted these perfectly. Bret, the tour guide was lovely and provided very detailed information on the island. Lunch was great, with morning and afternoon tea also supplied. The last stop at Lake McKenzie was definitely the highlight, thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon swim in the fresh water lake surrounded by beautiful white sands. Would definitely recommend.
Janine — 11 November, 2018

54321 We had an amazing day, the kids (8yrs and 5yrs) absolutely loved it. We saw dingoes and a whale, stopped at all the listed stops. Food was basic but perfect, and plenty of it. Bret was fabulous, very knowledgable and great driving to the conditions. We would highly recommend this tour without a doubt!
Cara — 10 October, 2018

54321 Had a great day bumps and all Our guide Hans was very well informed about the island and kept to schedule so we saw every attraction Good simple food was very tasty Would recommend this tour
Leanne — 14 September, 2018

43211 We were really pleased with the tour. Our tour guide Bret offered good information and provided as comfortable a ride as the tracks allowed. We were very disappointed that the information about one of my party being gluten intolerant was not passed on by the booking agency to the tour company. I was pleased that Bret made every effort once we made him aware to ensure we were sorted. Make sure that if you book through this booking agency and not directly with Frazer Experience that you emphasise the importance of your dietary requirements. Otherwise a great day.
Gordon Williams — 12 September, 2018

54321 Great tour! Tourguide Bret gave us a lot of interesting information about the island and showed us all the beautiful highlights of the island!
Noortje Wemmenhove — 11 September, 2018

54321 Excellent day tour. Bret is an excellent driver and also a very knowledgeable tour guide about many aspects of the island. Would highly recommend this tour. We covered all the stops advertised
Carol Henshaw — 10 September, 2018

54321 Lake McKenzie was fabulous, but too late in the day to swim. Very disappointed we did not get to the Pinnacles. Our bus became bogged. I think the vehicle was not up to scratch, for the conditions on Fraser Island.
Maria Malekas — 4 September, 2018

54321 Had a great day! The tour was amazing and our tourguide Bret did a fabulous job. We got to see a dingo and an amazing sunset on the ferry! Thanks for this special experience on Fraser Island.
Linda — 12 August, 2018

54321 Great tour, one you must have done. Greg was out driver, guide, Cook ,.... of the day! He drove us throughout the bumps to all the attractions we hot bugged in the sand so it was a real experience tour. The dingo’s were having a break that they we haven’t seen them. Great experience. 5/8/2018
Goethals Sebastien — 7 August, 2018

Ros — 3 August, 2018

54321 It was an awsome and funny day on Fraser Island! Thanks to the tour guide (??) who did a great job and with all his background info about the island. The 17 people bus met the expectations, the food was simple but great, the bumps were there... Sad that time was run out and we couldn’t see all planned attractions.
Giuliano — 31 July, 2018

54321 Very good 1-day experience tour. Greg was a great tour guide and driver, navigating us through the difficult, sandy roads of Fraser island. Managed to see all major attractions because weather was favorable.
Francisca — 26 June, 2018

54321 Awesome trip to Fraser. We saw all the important sites, got plenty of info through our guide, who was very friendly and took good care of us all day. We also got to see whales from the coast, so definitely worth a trip.

Sharon Allum — 19 February, 2018

43211 As the name says, it's an experience tours. Our driver Hans knew a lot about the island and was an experienced tours guide. The car is a bit outmodelled and needs new tyres. The scenic tours was great fun and we visited all the famous places. The smaller group was more like a private tours and less hectic than the biggger ones. As a family of four we can highly recommend this tours. We had a great day and enjoyed it very much. Thanks Hans!
Daniel — 17 February, 2018

32121 Our second Fraser Island day tour (previously went from Rainbow Beach). Wonderful day out but as noted by other reviewers the bus was old and struggled on some hills and we missed the coloured sands as the bus was not as fast as those of other operators.
John & Pam — 2 December, 2017

32121 The Island was very beautiful. However if you want to explore it, you have to have a few things in mind. The tourbus is very old. On normal, dry contifion we had problems to visit all destinations (we left the colorful sands out. ) Also the Island is full of 4x4 and other tourbusses. So it is just a usuall tourist expierience but not a remote one
Maximilian & Tim — 30 September, 2017

54321 Had a wonderful day. Views were amazing, even got to see a few whales. Bumpy as expected, but fun. Fitted a great deal into only 1 day. Our guide Bret was friendly and helpful. Loved the smaller group and bus. Thanks!
Jodi — 14 July, 2017

54321 Brett our tour guide was a great source of Island knowledge and was very friendly and helpful and we couldn't recommend these tours more highly.
Tony and Carole Goode — 11 July, 2017

14321 The bus was not the best, needed new shock absorbers, and they were very noisey. driver was nice but talked way too much and was hard to understand. the food was ordinary, would have been better off to bring our own. there was no concession for disability, students or elderly. overall felt like what we paid was not worth it. but the island itself is very beautiful.
Lin Shortland — 11 July, 2017

43211 Great day. Bret our guide was very knowledgeable and really enjoyed the lunch and cuppa. Thank you
Wayne — 29 June, 2017

54321 Gorgeous place! Really great value for such a wonderful experience. Lunch and snacks were good. Plenty of time at each stop. We even saw a healthy looking dingo. The Bret is an excellent guide and very knowledgeable. Not too much talk.. just the right amount of information and he made himself available for more in depth discussion at the stops. We loved it!
Jan — 17 June, 2017

32121 Fraser Island is beautiful and driver was really nice, but we would have liked to spend more time at McKenzie Lake and to have the opportunity to chill after all that bumpy way. Lunch was really poor and it would be better to BYO, considering also the price...
Letizia — 16 April, 2017

54321 It was a perfect day and all went extraordinary well. The trip was beautifuly planned and the stops were great. The driver was really nice and entertain us through out the trip. The food was good and plenty. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed that day off.
Gregoire Provot — 11 April, 2017

54321 Our day from start to finish was top class. Hayden, our tour guide was superb, very informative, friendly and a great ambassador for the company. The coach trip was very bumpy but this added to the atmosphere of the day. We took the 15 plane trip which was worth every penny in our eyes. Can't choose one particular part of the day that was better than the other, it was all fantastic. Thank you
KazJ — 24 February, 2017

54321 An amazing day with a perfect itinerary. We got to see a great snippet of what this beautiful island has to offer. Our guide, Brett, was fantastic with a great knowledge of the island including its amazing flora and fauna. Vehicle was very comfortable considering the terrain. Would highly recommend!!!!!
Hayley & Ben — 19 January, 2017

43211 As I am a coach driver I would not drive a new vehicle over those dirt tracks so I say (a job well done). And all the time giving a very good commentary. Lunch and morning tea was excellent considering where we were.we were very impressed that the owner of the company was the driver.excellent day
James and Myrtle — 14 January, 2017

54321 Awesome Day. The best & friendliest guides. Get ready for a bumpy fantastic day :):)
Warren — 2 January, 2017

21321 Dissapointed that we had to squeeze into a 7 person 4WD. Extremely bumpy ride. The local attractions were excellent and glad we went.
Angela & Robert — 25 October, 2015

21321 The vehicle is very outdated, gave a very rough ride, poorly equipped with the type of tyres installed. The driver was very nice but was hard to understand due to accent and talked to much. Morning tea was not as specified. Would have gone on one of the other tour providers after talking to passengers from other tours. Beautiful place but the vehicle spoilt the day.
Terry Fuhrmeister — 11 March, 2015

43211 Overall great day Murray excellent host guide .great value as we saw a great overview of the island, lovely healthy lunch. Thanks Wayne and jennifer
Wayne and jennifer — 24 January, 2015
