Stacy & Tim Shields

Loved it. David is an exceptional tour guide. He is very informative and friendly. We saw a lot more than we expected. The tea and scones were a nice treat.


Susan Mitchell

Andrew has amazing local knowledge,and we got to see more of Cairns than if we had gone on our own, and we met some lovely people! I thoroughly recommend this tour to all travellers!


Gael Hunter

An excellent tour and a great way to get an overview of Cairns. Dave is a lot of fun and very knowledgable. Dont be lured by the promise of cold drinks for afternoon tea though - it is tea and coffee only unless you pay extra.
