    Great day out, Craig’s tour is full of information, beautiful food and fun, we saw dolphins, whales, turtles and loads of bird life. We has a special pass to drive up to the lighthouse which was amazing as well as spending a good amount of time at the spectacular Rainbow beach. We felt safe and in good hands with this door to door tour. Highly recommend as a great day out 👏🏼👍😀

    Excellent day out from Noosa: informative, spectacular, well-paced, and very enjoyable. Craig Cleary loves the beach and the coast, and is very knowledgeable about so many things. Highly recommended.

    We had an absolutely amazing experience with Craig, so knowledgeable and took time to show us some amazing spots. He kept our 3 children well informed and amazed throughout the tour. If you’re ever in Noosa or Rainbow Beach, we highly recommend getting on a tour with Craig, absolutely magic!

    Fantastic Day on 4wd tour to Double Island Point and Rainbow Beach. Craig is very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed a beautiful lunch and a glass of wine. The coloured sands are truly amazing!

    I can’t recommend this company enough! Yesterday I went with our very knowledgeable driver Craig to visit Double Island Point and its lighthouse, the coloured sands and Rainbow beach where we stopped for a picnic lunch. An amazing beach drive with lots of bird life and we also spotted large manta rays, schools of fish and many large splashes made by the travelling humpback whales. A small group in a new 4WD made for a very comfortable day’s outing!

    Craig our very skilled driver picked us up from Noosa and we headed out to Tewantin to cross the river on a cable ferry. He told us about the history of the area and the importance of keeping this beautiful place the way it is. From there, we drove skillfully up the 40-mile beach on sand admiring the amazing views. Stopped to have morning tea (or recess has my son would say). Then we visited the lighthouse. Spectacular views! Stopped at Rainbow Beach and had a swim surrounded by the magnificent colours of the sand dunes. We continued along and stopped for a gourmet lunch with wine and beer! Craig told us a traditional story using the different colours of the sand on the beach showing how this wonderful area was created. Then, unfortunately, it was time to head back. We highly recommend this tour to everyone! It was awesome! Thank you Craig for such an enjoyable and memorable day!.
