Excellent tour. Highly recommend Lee-Ann's tour. She was so knowledgeable about so many aspects of Brisbane; its history, geography, architecture and art. She guided us through local parts that we'd never have found and gave us a real local insight. Lee-Ann and my husband (a

Hi Gaylyn, Thank you so much for your review of your tour with us back in 2017. I do remember you both, and if I'm not misktaken we chatted about a couple of books by a local author centred around some political figures? Lovely to hear that you had a baby after your visit; I'm sure you have been very busy ever since. I hope you are well and we might see you again sometime. Take care, Lee-Anne

We highly recommend the walk tour with Lee-Anne! From hunting macadamias to silent appreciation of art. We all had moments of delight thanks to Lee-Anne’s ability to share her love of Brisbane.
