Everything about the tour was fantastic, the church is definitely a must to see the stained glass windows, the museum was interesting and the guide was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The view at Barron Gorge was lovely as was the lookout overlooking Cairns. John’s knowledge of the plants in the Botanic Gardens was extraordinary and the Devonshire tea at Noa’s was a welcome treat. A perfect half day trip.

A great half day tour around Cairns and Barron and Palm Cove. Highlights were St Monica's Cathedral, botanical gardens, waterfall and afternoon scones. Very informative tour guide. Would recommend for all ages.

Went on the outback tasting tour for the 3rd time and as always it didn’t disappoint from the minute l got on the bus till when l got off,this is well worth going on. There was a nice range of food to try from crocodile sausage rolls to scones and cream,wines and chocolates and cheese and the scenery of the Atherton tablelands.The bus is comfy and the driver friendly and yes l will go again.

I did two tours - the Kuranda Scenic Railway/Skyrail tour and the Frankland Islands Reef Tour. The staff for both tours were amazing, especially the Frankland Islands team. My colleagues and I had an evening flight to catch and they really went out of their way to make sure we got there, even driving us personally to the airport! The enthusiasm, professionalism and five star personal touch they showed to everyone on the tour was memorable! Would definitely recommend!

The tour of the city was informative and covered many of Cairns local sights. Our guide Eric was very knowledgeable and entertaining More time could be spent at the museum but were told if we go back within three days and say we were on the tour we get in for free. The dinner cruise well organised,staff friendly and the food really good. To be frank, not much to look at, mainly industrial views, felt I was going in circles at times.
