What people are saying about Gold Coast

That was one awesome ride. Totally worth the money.. Just one advice for the Jet boat ride photography, I wish they take photographs in our own camera , and would not mind being charged extra or included as part of the ride. Because these days all of us carry a camera and at the end of it not getting a digital copy in the Digital era is bit ...hmmm However, that was not the case with helicopter ride. We got beautiful pics . So I am not sure for the reason behind not getting digital pics for jet boating

From booking the experience to the actual day was great, communication was spot on and I was kept informed. The morning was fabulous- Chuck the driver was so good and funny! And Stu our ‘pilot’ was great, informative, welcoming … the whole experience was amazing and I would highly recommend

Our trip was very excited and good vibe, boat and helicopter tours was amazing, beautiful view,amazing city of Gold Coast,

Such a fun experience! Instructors/workers made us feel so safe and we had so much fun! 10/10 would recommend

Great experience overlooking the Hinterland. Cant wait to do it again over the Goldcoast
