Really enjoyed the relaxed drive through hinterland and little evening bush walk and the waterfall viewing, the driver was friendly and helpful. In the bush there is just a little patch of glow worms here and there. The glow worm cave is quite good. Nice to see possums and other night life.

A little disappointing not many glow worms. Long tour no where to get light refreshments. The photos are very different to what you see. Less than five minute cave walk all in single file.
Went on the Sceinic Tours website it says there is a observitery and hot drinks and cakes didn’t happen. If not provided update website.
Paul was fantastic even though the bus had a faulty door. Paul needs a microphone or something couldn’t hear any of the commentary from the back of the line.

The tour in itself was really good. Tim, our bus driver/guide was informative, funny, very safe and courteous driver. Was amazing to see these little insects in the grotto as well as outside in the rainforest. Tim's commentary on the worms and all aspects of the night in the rainforest was really informative and he sort out "creatures" for us to see. Was different to see waterfalls by moonlight/torchlight. The biggest drawback to the night was no sort of refreshment during our 5 hour tour. Light finger food after the glow worms would have been appreciated, or prior to our return to the coast.

Honestly 90 dollars for what they offer it’s a rip off! You expect something different from the pictures they have on their website, but it’s totally different. Nothing spectacular. At all. You don’t see anything that you see on their pictures.
You travel two hours on the bus to pick everybody up from their hotel, and you spend the same amount of time when you come back. The tour lasts 1/4 of the time that you spend on the bus.
I would not recommend to do this tour, you can probably find something better to do with all that money.
I don’t usually write bad reviews but I really regret having taken this tour.

I was so impressed with the Scenic day tour group. I have been all over the world and been on lots of different tours but this one was just so unforgettable. Our tour guide Sonya was just amazing. Sonya was so informative about the area. I learnt more about the rain forest and the environment in one evening than I did in high school. I would have Sonya over for a BBQ in a heartbeat. Her personality was bright and bubbly. Heart of gold. If anyone is looking for a tour to do on the Gold Coast I would highly recommend this spectacular tour of the glow worms. This is a memorable experience for all ages.

Wow! This was a terrific tour run by Sonia on Saturday night. She picked us up from our hotel in Surfers and dropped us back at our hotel when the tour was over. It was wonderful to have an insightful tour guide who explained and answered any of our questions. She even gave some great advice about the local area with many laughs. This is a wonderful Australian tour for families, friends or partners. It does involve a small amount of walking in the dark, however torches are provided for the walk.

Hi Emily, It's so pleasing to read that you enjoyed your experience with us. Sonya is very passionate about what she does and that passion has resonated with you in such a positive way. Thanks so much for your review and positive feed back.

Sonya was absolutely fantastic.

I cannot believe how much I have learnt about the rainforest, the way lava flow created the rolling hills and mountains surrounding us, glow worms and even the stars.

She was funny, so easy to get along with and really engaging.

I've found a new interest in nature that I never had before.

I am severely arachnophobic and there are gigantic spiders in the rainforest but even then my mind was more focussed on the wonders surrounding me.

This tour was a total rip off! It was a long trip to a "glow worm grotto" that we were in for 5 minutes! It looked nothing like the experience advertised in the brochures. All we saw were a few pin pricks of light in the ceiling before we were ushered out. I thought we were heading to a larger cave, but we were led outside onto the "night bush walk" from there. The walk itself was a small track outside of the grotto, and took another 10 minutes at most. The guide did not have a microphone and it was impossible to hear him unless you were up the front.

We were supposed to see a waterfall and go "star gazing" but we did neither of these, and just headed straight back to the hotel. We weren't told that we weren't going on this part of the tour, the driver just headed back without any communication in the bus on the way home.

This part of the tour was skipped due to our bus breaking down on the way to the grotto. We sat in the dark on the side of a windy road for an hour until they could get another bus to us. My family and I were holding our breath the whole time, and were anxious that another vehicle would run into the bus. The driver was unfamiliar with the safety equipment, and admitted that to us as he tried to set up some reflectors to prevent us being hit. This did not instil confidence in us about his ability to keep us safe.

We booked this tour as a birthday present for our twin boys. It cost over $215 as a family and was a huge disappointment. We have been on a lot of tours as a family, and we have always really enjoyed ourselves with other companies. We rang the company and spoke to Bernard on our return. We explained our disappointment, and he said that he would speak to the bus driver and get back to us. He did not call us back, and dodged any further calls from us. This is a very unprofessional company. Save your money and do not book a tour with them. Not happy......

NAME AND SHAME ON YOU TREVOR FOR FALSELY ADVISING BREAKFAST WAS INCLUSIVE SHAME ON YOU PETER FOR GIVING FALSE HOPE OF A RESOLUTION SHSME ON YOU BERNHARD WEIBAL THE OWNER OF SCENIC DAY TOUR GROUP FOR DISREGARDING CUSTOMER FEEDBACK AND PALMING OFF THE PHONE CALL TO STAFF AND DISGUSTING AND DISRESPECTFUL PHONE MANNERS .i purchased a Hot Air Balloon tour for x2 inclusive of a EVENING Glow Worm tour which particularly outlined inclusive of waterfall by night which was the primary reason of my selection than choosing an opposition. The Advertised tour had many piercing faults of photos on the marketing material which caused misleading information that was very disappointing to not have the inclusions distracting the fine print. I was sold the package by Trevor who said that it had breakfast after the hot air balloon experience. I was really looking forward and excited about viewing the gold coast in the hot air balloon as was sold in the package subject to weather conditions which was changed to a different day for flying. Although the pilot said he did check the weather which was not such a trusted thing to tell as an opposition of a hot air balloon was floating on top of the coast that was spotted out by all members in the group tour.. The prime reason of my purchase was to celebrate my b'day and take photos above the gold coast and achieve the milestone of being afraid of heights. I had relied on the photos that were taken by the pilot to be given or sent to me as it was my birthday and wanted a professional photo not so much a selfie. no photos were sent due to Trevor misleadung conduct of purchase who said it was inclusive. The tour felt very rushed. The grass that was used to depart and land was very tall and i do have asthma and allergies to grass, due to tge early departure it was very dark and members of the group mentioned their fear of snakes and other predators that would sit in overgrown grass. This made me feel scared. I felt very isolated, rushed, uncomfortable and a little uneasy in the trip although its suppose to be an unforgettable experience group tour where everyone feels included. The pilot did not discuss the tour much of where we were until a few questions were asked. The attention of the Pilot was attentive to a larger Australian group excluding myself who appears to be a foreigner as I look Arabian and x4 other Asian foreigners. It turns out that the marketing material is very clever in its misleading conduct aswell as illusions of illustrated wording and photos distracting the core point of the purchase.   The tour guide who was responsible for the night tour for insulting my faith with sarcastic comments about our beloved Prophet Noah and her mockery about Noahs Arc to the group was uncalled for. She was also smoking on the job during breaks and made personal suggestions of advise to me to be selfish and to take my time to have children although my trip to QLD was to celebrate my b'day and to relax post IVF plans. I didn't take much photos as there were restrictions of no photos allowed of the glow worms on the night tour no waterfall was shown, no qld scenic gold coast lookout which is understandable due to fog. My husband and I purchased 3 packets of Tim Tams to offer the group as a friendly and kind gesture. I demanded a full reimbursement due to misleading conduct, racial and religious mockery and insults but was palmed off and was told that the company has never ever experienced negative feedback. What a ridiculous thing to say where in this forum some shared good and bad experiences and other travellers have stated otherwise

I will be sharing this experience with social media to warn them of the lies and deception I have experienced. I am very disappointed and embaressed by the bullying religious remarks and mockery and dreadful experience i had with scenic tours staff and extremely unprofessional conduct.

I am sooo disappointed with this tour, Me and my partner travelled up from Sydney to the Gold Coast and thought we would see something really cool but it was a complete waste of time. The tour started with our driver arriving at the hotel 10mins late, then he forgot to pack up the torches and had to wait again for someone to drop off the torches. Our tour guide Josh was friendly but extremely forgetful, on the way to see the glow worms, he would be explaining something then mid sentence he would forget what he would was going to say or he just doesn't know enough information about the pplaces he is pointing out. We got to the "glow worm tunnel" and was in there for 10mins max.. Again our tour guide Josh forgot some information about the glow worms and he had to pull out a piece of paper to give us the info about the worms. We were expecting to go into a bigger tunnel and see more worms We then went on a "bushwalk" where our tour guide was pointing out red back spiders and tadpoles in the pond. After we left the property we went to the waterfall but because didn't see anything cos it was in the middle of the night! The best part to the night was when we were meant to stop and have a light super, which was just dry arnotts biscuits, again our tour guide forgot to pack coffee cups!! At the end of the evening, he dropped everyone off at their hotels and me and my husband were the last people to be dropped off and Josh asked us after dropping everyone to their hotel doors "do you want me to drop you off at the corner of the hotel or to the hotel door?" After we asked him what do you mean he replied back don't worry i'll take you to the hotel door- why drop everyone off to their hotel and not want to take us back to the hotel> Extremely disappointed and not worth the money.
