    We absolutely loved this tour and would recommend it to anyone. Stu went out of his way to make the day amazing and is definitely a bucket list destination trip. It’s adventurous and fun for all ages and pushes you out of your comfort zone. Our best day in Cairns!

    I had so much fun on this tour and it's a great way to see a lot of remarkable landmarks if you only have a short time in Cairns. Karel was super knowledgeable about the area and helped make the trip as fun as it was. This tour is also super accessible and for all ages and physical abilities. High;y recommend 10/10!

    It is really difficult to find a decent trip but this one was truly a great experience! Very knowledgeable and friendly guide Sebastian will make sure you really make the most of this trip. He really made it special. We stopped at all the good palces and had enough time to explore and enjoy the nature. The lunch wasn't so great but I guess it's difficult to find something decent in rural area and I guess they just want you to have that experience in this very outback Pub, situated in 100 years old, timber building. So over all I will definitely recommend buying this trip.
