About Lake Garda Tours

Sunshine Coast couple Nevis and Bryan King have a lengthy association with the stunning Lake Garda and its surrounds.


Nevis & Bryan are a Sunshine Coast couple who began Lake Garda Tours in 2013. Nevis' parents were from neighbouring villages on the lake, and it was while returning to the lake regularly that Nevis got the idea of actually running tours of Lake Garda and showing its rugged beauty and charm to Australians.

Nobody else did tours of the area, so Nevis drafted an itinerary, consulted with friends and family who lived there, locked in accommodation and restaurants and must-see sites, and "Lake Garda Tours" was born. Several regular clients from a cafe that Nevis & Bryan operated in Buderim were eager guinea pigs, and the rest, as they say, is history. They sold the cafe in 2013 to pursue their dream and  have now refined the product to a six day, "unpack once", small vehicle tour of the lake and its environs with Bryan doing the driving and commentary.

They  see themselves as filling a particular market for those people who wouldn't consider the large size groups of traditional tours, but who at the same time don't want the hassles of  organising everything themselves, or the stress of driving a hire car in unfamiliar territory. The tour is also ideal for those lovers of everything Italian who've done the major cities/regions of Italy previously, but still like to return and discover a new area in depth.
