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 is 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.

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.

We booked another private tour with Coast to Hinterland with Geoff as our tour guide. The first tour was super and the second one we just finished was just as amazing. Geoff goes out of his way to accommodate our needs and ensures that we all have a good time. We still have one more tour with Coast to Hinterland with Geoff as our guide, which is to the zoo and ginger factory. We are looking forward to this trip as well. Thanks Geoff for making our tours even more memorable and enjoyable.
