I took this tour with my wife and daughter last week (we took a similar tour in the Gold Coast in 2011). We really enjoyed the tour. Great information and very friendly staff.

Dropped on this by chance while walking in Cairns. It was excellent value and involved a tour of the city and a cruise in the bay. The driver and the guide were great fun and had lots to tell us about the area.
