Fantastic day! My partner and I are in our early 30s and in Port Douglas for our honeymoon. We have done several other tours while being here and wanted to try something different from the other typical reef or daintree tours. So being a bit of a foodie thought it could be a fun day to explore some local produce. Well, Brett's tour went beyond our expectations. Our tour guide Dale was witty, informative and had us in stitches most of the drive. Each stop was unique and had something to offer. The tastings were all delicious and drinks all went down way too well. Thanks again for a great time we will be telling all our friends back home to check you guys out if ever in town :)

This tour was well worth every penny spent to acquire a seat on the coach. Ten people a nice small tour, the food and beverages were second to none. The first stop breakfast...small but very tasteful.....the view was superb...could have stayed there for the views alone....the tasting fruits were interesting and flavour some....The Lunch was amazing...crocodile, kangaroo, salads and wine tasting....The my Uncles distillery was also a highlight of the tour, tasting the spirits and liquors........ afternoon tea at the coffee plantation was great, lemonade scones and great coffee...the coffee liquor tasting there, was the icing on the cake... The guides were lovely especially Chris, very friendly and funny....the local knowledge him and Andrea had made the tour not only very pleasant but very interesting as well.... No downside to the tour that I could think of..... Thank you both for an amazing day out...learning about this beautiful area and the local businesses.......We will do this trip again next time we are up your way........Cheers

We enjoyed our day trip - and the hosts Andrea and Chris were excellent. Places visited provided a vast array of experiences - well thought out itinerary. Loved the last stop - private property on a creek hoping to see a platypus in the wild. The only negative would be having 4 adults needing to sit on the back seat of a Commuter bus. This either needs to be reduced to 3 or careful smart rotational allocation of seats so that all guests enjoy the experience without having to feel guilty requesting a seat change.

Glad you enjoyed the day, we NEVER usually have 13 passengers onboard but as my guide called in sick at 6.15 am in the morning with Laryngitis and my guide Chris in training offered to help out with out his LR licence it meant I (the owner) had to drive the bus or cancel the whole tour.Swapping seats on that day only was so no one group had to sit at the back all day.

This is a great way to travel around the tablelands, tasting the wonderful food and wine available, and not have to worry about who has to drive. We enjoyed this tour so much back in Sept 2020, we have just returned to do it again in April 2021, and it was just as enjoyable. Thanks Brett - who knows, we just might do it again!

What a good day this is. So much nicer than doing it yourself and about the same cost. Dale is a very good, safe, driver & full of knowledge. The coffee plantation, fruit winery, distillery & dairy (for cheese & chocolate) are all worth a visit. Great end to the day is the stop at the "secret location" for a drink by a freshwater creek in total tranquility. A very worthwhile day.
