Toby the tour guide gave an well thought out and informative insight into Townsville's past, present and future. There was plenty of time to listen to him, walk around and explore each area and an opportunity to relax.

Thank you for your review of our City Scenic & History Tour - we have tried to fit as much information into this 2.5 hour tour and still provide the time and space for people to enjoy the locations we visit.

Toby is passionate & very knowledgeable. I grew up in Tsv and it was my husband's first visit - we both really enjoyed the tour. Highly recommended to anyone interested in Townsville or Australian military history.

Toby was a brilliant tour guide with an extensive knowledge of his town. Well worth taking this tour to discover the future of Townsville as well as learning about the history.

Thank you for that great review - we wanted our tours to enable people to discover Townsville, which is totally different than just looking at a place.
