Excellent tour for history and geography of Brisbane
Sep 2019 • Couples
Excellent tour. Highly recommend Lee-Ann's tour. She was so knowledgeable about so many aspects of Brisbane; its history, geography, architecture and art. She guided us through local parts that we'd never have found and gave us a real local insight. Lee-Ann and my husband (a Kiwi) had great conversations about political figures from Brisbane's past. Husband and I are both teachers and love history and geography and this tour was perfect for us. (We did tour in July 2017 but pregnancy/baby/toddler happened soon after!!).

Hi Gaylyn, Thank you so much for your review of your tour with us back in 2017. I do remember you both, and if I'm not misktaken we chatted about a couple of books by a local author centred around some political figures? Lovely to hear that you had a baby after your visit; I'm sure you have been very busy ever since. I hope you are well and we might see you again sometime. Take care, Lee-Anne

We highly recommend the walk tour with Lee-Anne! From hunting macadamias to silent appreciation of art. We all had moments of delight thanks to Lee-Anne’s ability to share her love of Brisbane.

Hi Nicky, Thanks for your review of your time with us. It was lovely to welcome you and we will always remember you as our first 'post COVID shutdown' guests. It was a delight to be able to share Brisbane with you. I hope the macadamia opening tool search is going well :-) Take care Lee-Anne

Brisbane City Essentials Walking Tour with tour guide Jess
Mar 2020
I would highly recommend this 3 hour tour. It was a really informative walk around the city seeing historic buildings and the new developments. Jess was an excellent guide and we learned so much about the history of the city.
It was our first visit to Brisbane and it helped us to get our bearings for the remainder of our stay.
If you are visiting for the first time it is a "must do" tour

Hi Bev Thank you for your lovely review of your tour with Jess. It's great to hear that the tour helped you during the rest of your time in Brisbane, especially seeing this was your first visit. Currently we are all living through COVID-19, and we hope that you are well and that when this is all over you might be able to come back again. Take care Lee-Anne

Learn all about old, new and emerging BRISBANE
What a wonderful way to learn about both the history and the current development of Brisbane. Our guide Lee-Anne was knowledgeable, warm and friendly. Even though we only live an hour away and have visited Brisbane often she taught us a lot. Loved discovering ‘Blu Art Xinja’, exploring the heritage buildings, Queens Wharf project and much more. Whether you are new to Brisbane or a local this tour has something new for everyone.

Feb 2020
3 hour guided City Essentials tour with Gabbi. This was a fantastic, value for money tour and I would thoroughly recommend, especially to first time Brisbane visitors at the start of your visit to help you get your bearings. Gabbi was excellent – she made the tour very interesting, was very pleasant and answered any questions we had.

We highly recommend this very interesting tour of inner Brisbane. Lee-Anne shared her knowledge of the history and stories of the city.

Hi Jenny Thanks for your review of your City Essentials tour on the weekend. It was great to meet you all and I am glad you enjoyed the tour - I did too; it was lovely to be able to show you the city. I also hope you enjoyed the other things you had planned, particularly your Saturday night restaurant!

Hi Kate, Thanks for your very kind review. I'm glad we were able to answer the questions you posed to us. Of course, there is always something to learn, but we are pretty confident we know Brisbane very well! It was also great that you did find time to come on our Laneways and Cafes tour; we had a fun afternoon with you then also. Take care Lee-Anne

One-on-one with Brisbane city
A fantastic, intimate and insightful tour, that allows you see Brisbane's iconic buildings and most popular sights. My wonderful guide Lee-Anne was able to shed light on the city's early penal history, it's heritage listed buildings as well as it's modern culture and developing projects, allowing you to develop a deeper, appreciative understanding of Brisbane, its back lanes and hidden secrets.

Hi Thamu, Thanks for your kind review. I'm so pleased to read that you enjoyed your tour and that you got a deeper understanding of Brisbane. It is a great city and as you discovered has a great history but also so much is happening now and into the future. I hope you enjoyed the rest of the short time you had here. Perhaps we have given you reasons to come back in the future? If you do, please get in touch; we'd love to show you more. Take care Lee-Anne
