Mark, our guide was incredible. The experience from start to finish was fantastic; calm, informative, fun. We took two little ones, 1 and 3, which Mark (and the group itself!) helped make an absolute non stress. We all had a wonderful time and left wanting to do more!

Lake Mackenzie (Boorangoora) was stunningly beautiful. The tour was excellent and Gerard was a fabulous tour guide who took care of everything. So well organised...even getting to/from was scenic from the very start to finish of the tour. I couldn't fault a thing.

Excellent day tour...guide Steve was amazing..so much knowledge. Bus trip was fun and stops were really nice. Lake Mackenzie so beautiful and the water was divine. Good lunch but take bus snacks. We went on the joy flight omg! So funny! Highly recommend this tour.

As a first time traveller to Fraser Island, I think this tour was the best way to discover just what treasures the Island has to offer.

Murray was the most informative and professional tour guide.. Amazing experience. Highly recommended
