We had a fantastic day with Coast to Hinterland Tours. Jan was friendly, professional, knowledgeable and attentive. All of the activities – cheese board, wine tasting, chocolate samples and delicious lunch at Secrets on the Lake were great. The amount of free time to wander the towns and rainforest was perfect too! I would definitely recommend this day trip!

My bridesmaids organised a gin distillery tour through Coast to Hinterland Tours for my Hen’s Weekend. Mark was our guide/driver/expert photographer and helped to make it a wonderful day, maintaining his composure even when 10 women in their thirties started singing WAP in the back of the bus by 1pm.The tour took us to 3 very different distilleries with lunch at Mr Jones & Me, and we left very happy and very full; the meal came with with an entree and main or dessert and main, and the entrees were so large we almost didn’t need the main also!All of the distilleries had great gins, with the first also having cane spirit and rums and the second offering a beer paddle for those that wanted to switch it up. A discount on take home products was available at the first venue as an added benefit!Thanks for a wonderful tour, and we’ll be using Coast to Hinterland again!
Response from the owner: Thank you Trish, lovely recollection of the day and the weather was on our side. We're glad you enjoy our Private Gin Tour...all best on the big day.

Pick up time was prompt infact driver was waiting graciously for us to arrive and introduced himself as Peter. We did the Eumundi Markets trip this was my second time with Hinterland tours who are very easy to book with. Driver was friendly, knowledgeable of the areas he was driving in and pointed out places of interest. Would recommend as there is no parking hassle as Eumundi tends to be a very busy little town on Market days. Would definitely do again.
Response from the owner: Thank you, Debra. Great to see repeat business which is rewarding as a small business. We certainly hope this is not the last time we see on board one of our vehicles. I’ll pass on your comments to Peter. Many thanks for the five star review.

Many thanks to Brad for the timely pick-up from my unit & drop off at Maroochydore Airport for the early Bonza flight. I don't usually travel alone, so his guarantee to be on time reduced my concerns about being let down by other operators. Also, he was upfront about the cost, which I appreciate. Friendly, helpful, timely. Worth every cent.

Highly recommend the team from Coast to Hinterland Tours, thanks guys, we will be back.

Absolutely Amazing Tour! 20 stars out of 5!!!Despite my less than positive state of mindthis tour exceeded my expectations in every way. Fantastic communication, wonderfully organised, lots of variety, never a dull moment, unbelievable inclusions (lunch at Secrets At The Lake an absolute standout!!...not taking anything away from the cheese tasting, delicious chocolate and wine!!). Not to mention Jan, our driver and guide, very knowledgeable and happy to share details of not only the places we visited but local history and interesting facts along the way. A special mention to Jans safe and courteous driving during some very inclement weather on steep and narrow Hinterland roads.Cannot recommend this tour enough, both for value for money and for variety of content....dont hesitate....just do it!!!These guys are awesome!!!!
Response from the owner: Mike, it would appear you thoroughly enjoyed our Scenic Food and Wine tour, wonderful to hear. Thank you so much for a glowing review, I've passed on your comments to Jan. We certainly hope to see you next visit.

Jan, our Tour Guide was fabulous! Her knowledge was exceptional.We enjoyed every aspect of the tour but felt that the order of the venues was back to front. It started with a chocolate factory, cheese factory, lunch , and wine tasting.We completely understand that things are done in order of where they are located, but a slight change could be cheese factory, lunch, wine tasting, and then chocolate.I would have loved to hear more about each business by the owner instead of just putting their beautiful food in front of us and walking away.That aside, we had a great day and enjoyed it immensely.Thank you, Jan. We enjoyed having you as our guide, and you made the tour awesome for us.All the best from Mike, Matt, and Paul (The Cheeky Kiwi's).
Response from the owner: Thank you Mike for providing your thoughts as requested by Jan. Happy to say we have fine tuned the itinerary with revised timings and order of visits. We certainly hope to see you next visit.

We had a great day, Lucas picking us up right on time, and we got to meet other guests Geoff & Sandra from Sydney.

Lucas had an amazing grasp of the hinterland, history, landscape and entertained us with stories all day.

He is a real asset to your organisation, in the way that he brings his worldly experience, fun and positivity to the tour.

We enjoyed the chocolate stop, the cheese platter & wine flight. Another wine tasting experience would have been good to do.
The lunch and visit to Secrets by the Lake was excellent, thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciated Aldy showing us one of the treetop cabins.

We highly recommend this experience.

Thank you again.

The tour was just great! If I’m remembering the name correctly, “Lucas” was so knowledgeable. Not just local area, but he was a mind of Information. On part of the tour we don’t usually go for the wine tasting, but it usually always comes as “part of a tour”. Lucas made that, what must be, the most Informative and most interesting and knowledgeable wine tasting event ever for us two. The areas visited were well worth going to. Thanks.

High 5 to Lucas and the tours mapped areas.

Thanks rounded off the holiday.
