Can't be bettered for local knowledge
One of the best guided day tours we've taken anywhere in our travels. Our guide was incredibly warm and friendly and is an island local so his knowledge of all things 'Maggie' is outstanding but it's his presentation and delivery that have you feeling like old friends 30 minutes in to the tour.
There are plenty of breaks for photos and strolling and the bus is on the older side but spotlessly clean and comfortable.
Cannot recommend this company highly enough.

Best bus tour, Magnetic Island
Neil the owner drove us around the island Picnic Bay to Horseshoe Bay and had a wealth of knowledge and trivia that only a local would know.
We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel, many on the tour came over on the Ferry.

Thanks for the review Terry. It was a pleasure having you on board. The tour is a great way to learn about the island for those who are here for a few days. Hopefully you picked out a few good spots to return to to spend more time at.

Thanks for you review. I am glad we were able to adapt to suit you. Being a small family run business we are able to adapt within reason when we have smaller groups.

Apr 2021 • Solo
The Magnetic Island tour facilitated by Neil was well worth the fee and time. Neil has a good knowledge of the area and at the same time very passionate about Magnetic Island, it’s history and culture. Neil accommodates for all his customers and makes sure everyone feels welcome and is comfortable. He will even give a dad joke or two. I recommend this tour to anyone who visits Magnetic Island.

What a great day. Neil was very pleasant, a safe driver and well informed. 12 stops to very picturesque locations on the island with wonderful photo opportunities. The highlight for me was Bremner Point with the rock wallabies and local fish feeding, and the Rainforest walk with butterflies aplenty. Suitable for any age group and pickup and dropoff at the Ferry Terminal. A wonderful way to experience sightseeing on Magnetic Island.

Thank your for taking the time to leave a review. The butterfly walk is a special part of the tour, and one of may favourites. The wallaby's are a cute second. I'm glad you enjoyed your day.
