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.

It was reasonably good, although I thought the city of Brisbane could have been sold to us better and the tour guide more sensitive to non-english speaking people. It could have been slightly less expensive too.

Nice Sunday morning tour, beautiful weather, fabulous city. Driver very personable and knowledgeable. After stopping at the Breakfast Creek Hotel, I went back that evening for dinner. River cruise was fine, got some good shots of the city from the water. Overcame my fear of heights on the Eye of Brisbane Ferris Wheel, and walked the South Bank afterwards - great markets and restaurants were booming.
