We had Rio as our tour guide and he was amazing. The tour was so worth it. Brown Lake is a natural delight, Cylinder beach is beautiful (I recommend BYO lunch as we had to wait a long time for our lunch here) and the walk at point lookout was fabulous. Highly recommend for an accesible and not exhausting day trip.

A very well planned day tour of North Stradbroke Island by our tour guide, Orlando. Although it rained on and off, we had a relaxing and a great day from start to finish.

Great idea and nicely presented. Perhaps the presenter could tell the story and ask for thoughts. It would be more impactful and interactive.

Very interesting tour, some fascinating and sad stories. A good teaser to find out more information regarding Brisbane’s history.

Walked the streets of Brisbane and learnt about historic crimes at the site that they occurred
