5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

We only had 1/2 day so we wanted to get a lot of value in a short time as we had arrived from the USA the day before and were boarding a Princess cruise in Brisbane that same afternoon. Bob who we understand is a walking encyclopedia of Brisbane really lived up to that legend as our Tour guide. He showed us all the sights in a 3 hour period of time and ended the tour with a nice relaxing river cruise and morning tea. We found out about the history of the city and also saw things like the botanical gardens etc. and had a great sense of humor and was a pleasant fellow as well. The company that runs the tour JPT really runs a nice operation, we were picked up from a hotel several blocks from the TRYP where we were staying and taken to the central Transportation Terminal on Roma St. We also had some nice fellow passengers with us on the tour. Overall a very memorable visit to Brisbane. After our cruise we stayed in Surfers Paradise and today did another tour with JPT to the Australia Zoo. It continued in the same level of excellence that the Brisbane tour provided.

Bob was a wonderful tour guide and very knowledgeable and helpful. A very good inclusive tour and river cruise. Tea and scones on cruise was tasty. Would have been nice to have return hotel drop offs for those not continuing afternoon tour. If your short on time its a good way to see alot.

Easily the best city tour I've done in Australia. Lots to see and learn, and all done in good cheer and humour. A great river cruise to finish things off, and the cup of tea and scones went down a treat. Thanks, Bob for an excellent tour!
