Today we participated in the activity of looking for kangaroos, and went up the mountain to eat the most delicious scones, as well as the amazing waterfalls. I enjoyed the whole day experience very much. The tour guide Andy's service was really attentive. It would be great if I could give 6 stars. I highly recommend everyone to participate in this trip. You will definitely be very satisfied with the services.

We had a great time with Matt. Very knowledgeable and passionate person as he did commentary from the start of the tour till we reached on top of the mountain. He explained all the landmarks we passed on our way. He was humorous every now and then. We spotted a gecko 🦎 and huntsman 🕷️. The only suggestion I have is the driving back as we felt like he was rushing but again he is time bound too. Keep up the great work Matt, you are legend

We took the Mountains and Kangaroos tour from Broadbeach and had a wonderful time. We saw a comfortable group of Kangaroos, and even managed a peak at a Koala outside a zoo. Bill was awesome, but he told us to be careful about Gary.
