I booked this tour so that my wife would have a 'cuddle a koala' experience. We were not told that we had to book! When we joined the queue we were too late. The tour was otherwise quite good but I got the impression that the driver was bored.
Our guide was great. The bus tour and riverboat tour were good with lots of good info and sights. The koala sanctuary was good but we were disappointed in not being able to hold a koala. You have to get there early to get a ticket to hold one only so many per dayand they had already given them all out. I would suggest doing that earlier in the day, or the guide get them in advance-at least for the people who have rebooked.
The tour guide Bob was extremely boring and rude. Would not recommend this tour, at least not with this same tour guide, and especially not for kids. The koala sanctuary was the highlight, but the hours leading up to it were very boring.
It did not worth the money. We started from Gold Coast. The drivers from and to GC were nice but the old tour guide who picked us up in Brisbane was quite rude. I found nothing interesting introduced by him. Time allocation he set was too tight and it was in hurry all the time, especially when the tour joined by many old people, even disable one. I felt like we were robots all the time, though we are customers. We came back to GC 30 minutes earlier than schedule and I think there were some small stops were ignored.
However, the cruise without this tour guide was good. You can enjoy the river' scenery and that's great.
Brisbane é o melhor lugar da Austrália para quem quer uma foto com o coala! E o city tour, tanto de ônibus como de barco, vale muito a pena também. Tivemos azar de fazer o passeio em dia de chuva, e ainda assim rendeu ótimas fotos!
Tour was informative and interesting, especially the visit to Lone Pine Santuary was really fun! However, would be better if we were allowed more time to take photos at some scenic places like the Breakfast Creek Hotel and Mt Coot-tha Summit.
