    What to Expect
    From its roots as a penal colony, Brisbane has evolved into a modern, vibrant city and the much-visited capital of Queensland. Your full-day itinerary begins with pickup at your Brisbane or Gold Coast hotel and a sightseeing coach tour through Brisbane’s historic center. Hear tales from the city’s past and listen to commentary from your driver-guide as you cruise by urban attractions like City Hall, St. John’s Cathedral, and Parliament House.

    For an aquatic perspective, board a riverboat at the lovely Newstead Gardens and enjoy a cruise along the Brisbane River. Glide under Story Bridge and past waterfront attractions like Customs House and Kangaroo Point Cliffs.

    When you arrive at the city’s energetic South Bank, take a spin around the giant Wheel of Brisbane in an enclosed passenger pod (own expense). Take in panoramic aerial views of the city, river and surrounds from this observation wheel that reaches almost 200 feet (60 meters) above ground.

    In the afternoon, visit the XXXX Brewery for a tour of the facilities and tastings of its famous brews.

    Then stop at Mt. Coo-tha Lookout for inspiring views of the Great Dividing Range and Moreton Bay. Your full-day tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.

    Thank you for taking the time to review us! I think I can guess which driver guide you had. He's our Big Billy Goat gruff hey but sure knows his stuff. You're assumption is right, thousands of tourists. He's worked for us for a very long time. Cheers, Allison JPT Sales

    The full day tour was great! Our tour guide Bob was so knowledgeable and very friendly. It was a nice mix of driving and walking. If you do the afternoon tour there is a little more walking. The river boat tour was a lot of fun. We got to see a different side of Brisbane. Would

    A really great time. The host was very friendly and knowledgable. Plenty of opportunities for photos. The xxxx tour was very informative. The riverboat cruise with scones and coffee to die for. Strongly recommend.

    Disappointed that we didn't get to see the koalas at the sanctuary, booked this tour specifically for it. Only got informed in the morning of the tour. Should have informed earlier, so I could have used my time for better use, e.g going to the zoo instead of this tour.

    I'm sorry Farah. The only guaranteed koala cuddle experience, as far as we are aware, is with Australia Zoo on our Croc Express Tour. There are laws limiting time between humans and koalas these days. I hope your holiday time was very special and made up for this disappointment. Sincerely, Allison
