We had a great day. The tour guide was funny and very informative. Loved hand feeding the Wallabies. We would recommend that you do the tour before you start exploring Magnetic Island as the Island has plenty of hidden gems. Thanks for the wonderful experience

Our guide Neil was very knowledgeable and we learned many interesting facts about the island and it's history. He is definitely a cut above the rest as far as tour guides are concerned and had the weather programmed so that it rained while we were on the bus and dry when we were walking around. The small number of people on the tour (15?) also added to the enjoyment. Seeing the butterflies in the bush at the end of the tour was an absolute highlight. Thank you very much.

Loved hearing some of thehistory of the island. Well presented tour highly recommended for those wanting a good day trip or for those staying a little longer. We went to places I would have neverfound on my own. The rock wallaby's were a highlight. My other half wanted to take one home. Beautiful views from a comfortable bus that was easily accessible for those that may have some mobility issues getting on and off the bus. I was worried about this as I walk with a arm crutch. I shouldn't have been worried. Handles on both sides and small steps Made it easier to get on and off. A pleasurable and knowledgeable trip. Would recommend to anyone who wants to see a little of everything and learn some of the history. Stopped at Horseshoe Bay for lunch where there are cafes and pubs to suit all tastes. Well worth the money. Has made us want to return to the island for a couple of weeks armed with some handy knowledge.
