Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Hired a big bike on Monday and took it for a great ride up Pt Douglas and back through Mareeba. On Sunday grabbed a scooter to get around town and out to some great sites. Very reasonable prices. 24hr hire. No fuss very friendly and easy to deal with. Will definitely be back and borrowing anther bike.

    After getting tired of walking we discovered that Cairns Electric Bikes hires ebikes and normal bikes. Cairns is such a bike friendly place we chose the normal bikes which were really easy to rise. Hired for the day we enjoyed roaming around including going to the Botanic Gardens where we used the supplied security chain to lock our bikes to the parking area. And cheap to hire

    Easy to use and a great service. The camera worked perfectly and even came with a red filter. Convenient service, just pick up and drop off from hotel reception.

    Had an amazing weekend with Pump n Pedals bike hire at the Smithfield Mountain Bike tracks. Highly highly recommended. The staff were absolutely first class in ensuring we had the right bikes, were fitted correctly and provided detailed guidance on the world class trail network at Smithfield.

    The bikes provided were extremely high quality. Ordinarily when I travel I would try to take my bike with me as all of the bike hire places I have encountered have sub quality bikes - not the case with Pump n Pedals where the bikes are practically brand new latest models and maintained to a very high standard.

    Special thanks to Adam and Trina who gave me extra plus plus service.

    I wd like 2 highly recommend Reef Unlimited (or Ree-FUN-limited)! 4 a ferry ⛴️ ride 2 Fitzroy Island.

    We were driving 🚗 on our way 2 the port 2 join our cruise when we received notification 🔔 that due 2 bad weather 🌦️ the ship 🚢 was being rerouted from the Pacific Islands 2 Queensland.

    My daughter wanted 2 go snorkelling 🤿 with the fish, 🐠 coral 🪸 & turtles 🐢 etc & she was gutted.

    In Cairns with 2 days in port we excitedly visited the local marina & the many operators, 2 find that trips 4 that day had already left & trips the following day were fully booked or we couldn’t get there early enuf in the am or back early enuf in the arvo 2 catch the last boat back. To say we were disappointed 😢 was an understatement.

    The cost of wifi on the cruise was abt $20/day, so it was prohibitive 4 us 2 use & therefore couldn’t organise/book ahead. In hindsight 2 make the most of the time, we shd have done.

    So back on the ship I reviewed the 2 flyers I had picked up that day & suggested 1 trip which was a 1/2 day ferry ⛴️ trip only, 2 Fitzroy Island.

    Dep 10.45am & arr back @ 3pm which we shd have enuf time either side 2 do. Only abt 2 hrs on the island 🏝️ but at least it was something. Their full day schedule was 8.30am - 5pm. So I rang & booked. 😛

    We got up @ 5am, had breakfast, got tickets 4 the tender (boat) 2 shore & were on the first boat. Got 2 the marina & were checking out the place 2 catch the trip & the 8.30am boat was just leaving, so I asked if we cd get on!

    They thankfully obliged & so we got there a few hrs early! 😊 My daughter & hubby, (who had their own snorkeling gear) spent over an hr snorkelling 🤿!

    We had a leisurely time on the beautiful island 🏝️ & beaches b4 boarding the ferry back again 2 arrive @ 3pm & had plenty of time 2 get back 2 the ship. 🛳️

    All the staff were wonderful, but Patrick, in particular, shined with his jovial sense of humour & ongoing service 2 guests on our return trip, selling ice-creams & drinks. 🍻 It made an already enjoyable day more so. 😁
    Thank u 🙏🏻 2 everyone - from booking, 2 steering, 2 serving!

    I hired a Street Bob and had a trip up into the Atherton Table Lands for a day. Absolutely fantastic, Ross was fantastic with advice on what to see and how to get there. What a thrill. #RideWithEagleRider

    Absolutely awful experience with Jucy. Wish I had read the reviews beforehand. If you are considering renting a camper in NZ please go for another company.

    We started our trip in a Jucy Condo, which we waited at the Christchurch Office for 2 and a half hours for, even though we arrived at exactly the time we said we would. The van was dirty, we got a parking ticket for parking in the local Pack’n’Save for 2 hours while we tried our best to clean it and make it liveable at least. People before us’ mouldy food left in cupboards, dead flies etc.

    Unfortunately during our 3 week trip we had an accident, where we skidded on black ice and collided with a tree. Entirely not our fault as stated in the police report. It was impossible to get hold of Jucy over the phone to sort this matter out, and we ended up having to find our own way back to the Queenstown office the next day for a replacement vehicle.

    The staff in the Queenstown office were mostly unhelpful, and did not provide any guidance about our excess, which was stated on the ‘Stress-free’ insurance policy as $0, but was in fact $5000, due to a hairline crack in the roof of the vehicle which we were uninsured for. Bear in mind, this hairline crack would have made no difference to the repair of the vehicle as the roof box was being removed and fitted to another vehicle anyways. We ended up being charged nearly $2500 for fibreglass damage, that would’ve cost $100 if we were to get it fixed ourselves.

    Again, getting in contact with Jucy trying to get a refund on any money was virtually impossible over the phone, I waited on hold for over 2 hours total in 2 days and 3 or 4 calls. We finally received a very small refund, which was not inline with the damage that occurred to the vehicle, and when we asked for an independent review, we were provided with a 2 sentence answer from said ‘independent assessor’, and no change in the cost.

    Overall, we were lucky the South Island was so beautiful, and that we didn’t allow this awful company to ruin our trip. But, I would urge you to choose another company, and not let Jucy steal anyone else’s money.

    Peter is great! Excellent service, very clean and quality equipment at a reasonable price. We stayed in Palm Cove, Peter brought the gear to our reception (but would have met us pretty much anywhere) and gave some very helpful hints about tides and the fish types in the area. Everything was supplied: rod, hand line, tackle, chair, chopping boards, extra buckets and bait even a first aid kit! Highly recommend for visitors and locals that want a fun weekend without having to buy all the kit. Cheers Peter, will definitely hire from you again.

    Been a dream of mine to ride the Captain Cook highway on a harley from Cairns to Port Douglas. On a recent trip to Palm Cove contacted Ross at EagleRide and organised a Electra Glide Ultra Limited.. Ross was really good to deal with and really helpful and engaging. He even helped out with some gear when it was obvious our gear wouldn't be great in the tropical heat. The big Electra Glide ran like a dream and my wife and i had a great day. Couldnt recommend Ross and EagleRider more. Thanks again Ross. Sean and Alex
