Loved to do the markets again.

“Josie the bus driver made all in the bus feel valued and safe. Her explanation of the area travelled through added interest and understanding. Loved the markets and all the usual and creative stalls.”

Wonderful Experience

“The whole experience, from design to actual event, has been wonderful. Mark has been very helpful in providing suggestions and fitting all options into a well-run tour that all students (mostly from USA and UK) have been thoroughly enjoying. Both drivers, Mark and Geoff, have very accommodating and had lots of interesting facts to share along the way. The van was clean and comfortable. The customer service was outstanding. I would highly recommend Coast to Hinterland Tours to anyone who would like to discover the Sunshine Coast.”

Great Private Hinterland Tour

“We had a great private tour with Peter. The tour was varied stopping at a waterfall and other good vantage points of the beautiful Hinterland countryside for pictures. Peter had lots of local info and the tour included wine tasting, schnapps and a filling meal at a german restaraunt followed by more drinks at another bar. A good way to sample the lovely area of the central Sunshine Coast.”

Fantastic day out

“The whole trip was fantastic. Great group of Kiwi’s and Aussies. Even though it wasn’t a day for good views at lookouts we all still enjoyed ourselves. Great cheeses and shopping at first stop. Most impressive lunch. Wines were okay. Chocolate shop and more shopping went down a treat. Guide was lovely and informative.”

Eumundi Market trip

“I really enjoyed the whole experience, except for the length of time. We arrived at 9.20am and by the time you queue for a toilet stop it didn’t leave the advertised 3 hours. The market is so big, and difficult to find your way around.. If you didn’t buy when you first spotted something - hard to find your way back in the short time frame. I would’ve liked at least another hour as there was a small element of panic trying to get round it all. Especially it you wanted to try something on.”
