        An informative and picturesque tour
        Thank you Peter for such an informative and picturesque tour. We appreciated all the information you provided, and your care in trying to make your guests comfortable, and to tailor the tour to what your guests wanted to do. The kids will always remember their freezing cold swim at Twin Falls, and the amazing views of waterfalls, rainforests, and valleys. Thank you for helping take some family photos in the most amazing of locations! We would definitely recommend your tour to others. A memorable way to end our Queensland holiday.

        Amazing authentic experience of Gold Coast & Australia
        Highly recommend this tour for those who want to experience Gold Coast and its rainforests. I took this and the night hike to see Glow worms and both tours were amazing. Peter was the kindest and most genuine guide going the extra mile to make sure everyone in the tour gets to see the beauty of the sights and the history behind. It's my first time to see Gold Coast and both tours left an excellent impression to me. Will not hesitate to book another trip with Pete. Home cooked food, pickup/drop off to accommodation are a plus.

        Great tour to Springbrook Nat'l Park!
        My husband and I recently took a very enjoyable day tour with Peter to Springbrook Nat'l Park. The other people cancelled their tour due to rain forecast, but Peter was very willing to take just the two! We did get wet and were able to see some totally beautiful waterfalls and walks thru the rainforest. Peter was a wealth of information and the day just flew by. We would take another tour with Peter in a heartbeat!!

        Absolutely amazing tour!
        We had the most amazing experience on Peter's rainforest tour! His explanations were excellent and we visited some truly stunning locations. Peter made everything easy, from previous communication to transportation and his friendly demeanor really enhanced the trip. The snacks he provided were tasty and he ensured the group was well taken care of throughout the day. We wholeheartedly recommend this tour to everyone! It was an absolute amazing tour, thanks a lot!

        An Authentic Experience of Australia!
        This tour was one of the highlights of our Australian Vacation! We set up our private evening wild life, waterfall, and glow worm tour a few weeks before our arrival because the price for a family of four was similar to group tours and we hoped for a more personal experience and it 100% delivered. I am going to call our guide "Eagle Eye" Peter because he spotted so many things we would have missed. After being picked up at our resort and instantly falling into great conversation, we went to a local wildlife reserve and "Eagle Eye" left us within a mob of kangaroos and said he was going to see if any koalas were in the area... away he bounded as we took photos with the kangaroos who bounced away when we got to about 3-4 feet but still great photos! I saw "Eagle Eye" dashing from corner to corner of the reserve before 20 minutes later he came back having spotted a koala which he brought us to and taught us how to tell is was a male or female and signs of koalas being in the area! it was a nice little maybe mile or so hike through the bush, talking and answering my kids questions all the way, casually spotting 3 more koalas and a "murder" bird, before we hoped in his car again to go to local trail in the rainforest, learning about the local indigenous people along the way (He cemented the Kookaburra as my favorite Australian animal from the information he shared). On the hike out our 9 year old was bit by a Bull ant (which packs quite a sting). Peter handled it very well and provided first aid until our son was ready to continue, Peter was so calm I thought it must happen all the time, but he later shared that it was a first. We all wanted to continue to what we the main point of our tour, the evening viewing of the glow worms. "Eagle Eye" took us into a public trail that was not commonly used by bigger groups so we were the only ones walking the path. We went a mile or so into the forest, all the time chatting about the rainforest, Australia, animals, flora and fauna. It was quite a dark adventure but my family had a great time with the flashlights and Peter helped our boys when they needed a hand. We finally came to the glow worms which were a magical bright blue, like glowing starts in the serenity of the rainforest. He answered all our question with amazing enthusiasm and detail with ease. Reluctantly dragged out of the forest and, "Eagle Eye"not only spotted wildlife in the dark including beetles, birds, and frogs but pointed out the beautiful stars and city skyline in the distance on our way back to the car. We did one last stop at an overlook for a great look at the city skyline but also of the stars in the forest sky that showed the Milky Way down to the stardust. I will always remember the my 9 and 11 year old crashed in the back of the van exhausted from an amazing adventure and taking home memories that they will remember for the rest of their lives. If I am ever back in the area, I would not hesitate to book another tour with Peter!

        Wonderful experience !
        This tour is for sure a must-book if you're in the Gold Coast, would highly recommend. Peter was an amazing guide. His experience and knowledge of the park was showcased numerous times during the trip where he would show us many scenic views and interesting facts about the wildlife and history of Springbrook. On top of that, he is also an amazing chef as the lunch catered for was delicious and appetising for all cultures. We left the national park feeling very satisfied. Even though it may be a bit pricier than other tours, the money spent was well worth its weight in gold. Thanks Peter!

        Jack-packed day full of spectacular views.
        We had a fantastic, jam-packed day with Peter. Got to see some amazing views and waterfalls. We got caught in some rain during one of the walks (couldn't be helped), but the visit to the kangaroos to cap the day made up for any sour feelings. Well worth it and would recommended it to anyone visiting. Thanks a bunch Peter!

        What a great tour and day this was! We were lucky that we were with a small group. Peter was completely flexible and was able to meet all our wishes. He had an answer to all our questions. So amazing. Thank you very much! :)

        Springbrook NP visit - amazing!
        Wow - what an incredible day. We were so well looked after by Peter who is very friendly and welcoming from the off and very passionate/knowledgeable about the local area and flora and fauna. Springbrook National Park is absolutely stunning. The transfer bus is comfortable and air conditioned and the lunch provided was very tasty. Peter was willing to follow up with a detailed email on everything we had seen and the places we had been too. Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this tour, the host and the general experience - fantastic!

        Must use GC Rainforest Tour and ask for Peter. I promise you, will love it.
        This is the best rainforest / waterfall / hiking / koala / kangaroos tour possible. Ask for Peter, this is a must. He is the best. You will not be disappointed. He is very nice, smart and customized our tour for our day.

        A must do in Surfers Paradise
        My partner and I did this tour with Peter and cannot recommend it highly enough. All our needs were catered for and it was so easy and flexible to suit everyone’s ability and preferences. It was unhurried and our host Peter was friendly, accommodating and incredibly knowledgeable and went out of his way to give us all an amazing experience! The scenery was spectacular and the walking not too difficult, even for someone as unfit as I am. The lunch provided was excellent and I’d highly recommend having it at the base of the waterfall. And bring your swimmers and towel for a quick dip. Can’t rate this trip highly enough! It was easily the best experience of our trip to the Gold Coast. Wayne (and Angela) Geelong, Victoria

      I actually found out about this tour very last minute but I’m so glad I went. Pete came to pick me up and dropped me off at the front step of my accommodation which was very handy and kind. He is very knowledgeable and you can tell he is passionate and has a lot of experience in nature. It is a great opportunity to learn as I can pretty much guarantee, any question you can think of, he will be able to answer.

      Throughout the hike he is very good at spotting all the interesting fauna and flora. We actually got to see a rare blue crayfish, bioluminescent fungi and of course, the glow worms which are really beautiful. It really was a truly incredible experience! If you like nature, this is a must!

      Thanks a lot for everything Pete :)

      Walking through a forest glittering with glow worms and behind a waterfall under the light of a near-full moon was a breathtaking experience. Pete was a really knowledgeable guide who covered the area's history, formation, flora and fauna. We were given plenty of time to soak in the sights and Pete's keen eye also meant we got to spot some extra wildlife including geckos, frogs and the amazing Lamington crayfish. Highly recommended!

      Really cool trip - we saw tons of glow worms and plenty of other wildlife too. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife, and it was a nice small group (4 of us plus the guide). There were no other groups in our spot so it was quiet, and definitely a unique experience walking through the rainforest in the dark. Our guide also stopped the bus on the way back so we could see the beautiful stars. Great night!

      Highly recommended. My husband and I enjoyed the tour a LOT! Peter is a great guide. He pointed out walking-stick palms, spiders, crayfish, staghorn ferns and of course, glow worms. Peter is flexible, willing to spend a little extra time if there’s interest. You won’t be disappointed.

      We had a nice evening walk with Peter in the rainforest. We started out with some light but it got dark quickly. He explained the glow worms, the rainforest and the history of the area. He took us to a quiet area in Springbrook National Park. It was away from the crowds looking for the glow worms in the cave. It was a really nice evening. It was just us so we could go at our own pace. We even saw a Padimelon!

      Peter is probably the best tour guide you can find in Gold Coast. My wife and I joined his Glow Worm night adventure tour. He is an absolute expert of the rainforest and has a lot of patience in answering all questions you have about most creatures you will find in the forest. He is friendly and enjoys getting to know each and everyone of his guests. He is responsive with any pre-tour questions and requests. Plus the tour van is new and comfortable, so don’t worry about a longer ride to the forest. Definitely a 5/5

      Fantastic experience walking through the forest at night and having the opportunity to see the glow worms in many different areas throughout the walk was amazing.
      The waterfalls were gorgeous and so different being able to see them at night.

      Definitely don't forget shoes with good grip and a jacket. (I forgot mine) but it wasn't bad at all once we got moving.

      Would definitely go again!

      The glow worms have to be seen to be believed, photos are good but never do them justice. It’s beautiful seeing them all lit up and also being able to see the waterfalls at night.
