We visited Brisbane on a cruise ship..The Maasdam..in October 2017. A member of our Cruise Critic group had set up a tour with John for six people. Prior to the cruise, we had communicated with John several times via email. He was always very responsive to our questions. When the ship arrived in Brisbane, he was waiting for us and off we went in a new air conditioned mini van. John has lived in Brisbane for quite awhile and has an impressive knowledge of the city and it's environs. We started off with a tour of some of the beautiful older residential neighborhoods. Then, we headed downtown for a tour of the city. We had an nice visit to the Cathedral [ and witnessed a "tourist" wedding for a Japanese couple ]. John then took us to several other interesting sights around the downtown area. For lunch , he took us to an old hotel with a neat bar and delicious food. In the afternoon, we headed out to a wild life park. The park was extremely well done and we were able to get up close and personal with many of Australia's interesting animals. On the way back to the ship, John drove us to us to the top of a mountain that gave us an outstanding view of the city and the surrounding area...We thoroughly enjoyed our day with John. He is a true professional and who truly loves to show off his beautiful city to visitors. We would highly recommend John to anyone visiting Brisbane !!!

The minute I saw John, I felt as ease. This was my first time booking a private tour day and what can I say wow wow, me and my little man (10) had such a fantastic day with John. He was great company and had lots of knowledge about the city but most importantly he was absolutely fantastic with my son. He will be glad to rest his ears lol I highly recommend this guy, if you are thinking of having a tour. Thank you so much again John for a truly fantastic day. Trisha UK

Several years ago, I was in Brisbane on business and had the pleasure of taking a tour with John Donaldson. It was such a memorable experience that I kept his business card in case I ever made it back there.

My husband and I returned to Australia recently, and while we were in Brisbane, we spent two days on tours with John. We were accompanied by a friend from Brisbane on the tours. It was as wonderful as I remembered. John provided door to door service at our motel and also picked our friend who enjoyed the tours with us.

John has a vast knowledge of the area and shared a wealth of information with us. He was also quick to get input from our friend and kept everyone engaged in conversation effortlessly. It was such a pleasure to get to see Brisbane and the surrounding area without having to worry about driving or navigating the roads ourselves.

John is professional, warm, accommodating. He found out what our interests were and helped us choose the tours that would suit our interests best. He made the tours memorable, informative and entertaining. I'd definitely book with him again on another trip and highly recommend Personally Yours Tours to anyone going to Brisbane and the surrounding area!

We wanted to book some great day tours around Brisbane. We went up to the chief concierge Pericles of the Sofitel Brisbane. The best concierge ever!! He introduced us to John Donaldson, ... you like the man from the first moment, a walking library, never boring, a great and safe driver, always on time... we can't think of anything negative, just ask for John! You are in the very best hands!

Thank Wim D
