Private Tour by Design –  Sunshine Coast Private Tour

Want to explore the beautiful Sunshine Coast and Noosa area on a totally relaxed and laid-back guided tour? If so, a Sunshine Coast and Noosa private tour are exactly what you’re looking for!

Explore the beautiful Sunshine Coast and Noosa area on a totally relaxed and laid-back guided tour? If so, a Sunshine Coast and Noosa private tour is exactly what you’re looking for! We offer a fantastic full day out guided tour, lasting from approx 9 am until 4 pm. That’s more than enough time to get a real overview of how stunningly beautiful and fun-filled this area really is.

We understand that not everyone wants to head out for the day with other groups, and instead, they prefer to enjoy the peace and serenity of exploring with close family or friends. Group tours are certainly fun-filled, but for larger groups, or for those craving a personalised adventure, a private, guided tour is the choice to make.

What can you see?

That’s totally up to you! With our Sunshine Coast & Noosa Private Tour, the itinerary is down to you; decide what you want to do on the day or let us create a full itinerary including the destination and activities. Your driver/guide knows all the best spots to visit and can take you to places the Coast to Hinterland Tours minibus can’t go.

The freedom to choose your own itinerary is something which most other tour companies don’t offer, but we allow you to decide your hot-spots and places of interest. Just tell us what you want to see, and the things you’re interested in, and we’ll pull together a bespoke day out for you. In addition, your private tour will also be able to get to the hidden gems, the places that a minibus simply can’t reach. We also try our best not to spend too much time driving, so you get to explore the area much more.

Your private tour guide is on hand to give you all the low-down on the things you’re seeing, giving you a truly personalised and fun-filled day out.

Review of: Sunshine Coast Private Scenic Guided Tour Inc. 2-Course Gourmet Lunch

Geoff was probably the best guide I could have asked for. I wasn’t really fazed with an itinerary so we just made it up as we went along. Don’t make the mistake of hiring a car and getting lost. Geoff knows where everything is and also an extensive history behind everything from coffee, beer, wine, views, gin and eateries.

We were picked up by Geoff on time. Geoff greeted us with a smile and made us feel very welcome. As we took off Geoff’s wealth of knowledge begin to flow out.

He had an incredible amount of historical knowledge of the area. We got to our destination and felt like locals with the amount of knowledge that had been shared with us.

The destinations we stopped at have been handpicked and were all fantastic. The day flew and I can’t recommend this tour enough. Hopefully, you’re as lucky as us to have Geoff take you around this great area. Make sure to bring some loose change and pick up some roadside avocados.

Positive: Quality

Excellent day! Great to learn all about the history of the Sunshine Coast and adventure through the Sunshine Coast Hinterlands. The Driver Geoff was extremely friendly and provided interesting information about not only Sunshine Coast history but Queensland History. 5/5 Experience, would recommend.

Just wanted to say thank you very much for a wonderful tour the other day. We enjoyed ourselves very much and enjoyed Geoff’s knowledge about all things Sunshine Coast. The highlight was the walk through Mary Cairncross and spotting the gorgeous little pademelons. Thanks again and we will definitely have another tour with you next time when in Noosa.
