I really recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cairns. I did a six month trip around the world and this tour was the most fun. The tour guide gets everyone to introduce themselves at the start of the trip and created a great atmosphere on the minibus. The driver had a number of games to play on the bus to... More

I was a bit concerned the tour would be too OTT silly and non-stop enforced fun (I went straight from the night bus so was exhausted) but I was lucky to have Sid, the perfect guide. He made sure everyone got to know each other, important for me as a solo traveller, was super friendly, funny, laid back pace and... More

The scenery, and the places you see and what you get to do is really nice. However the tour guide 'Cousin' Brad is incredibly annoying and childish. Keeps on making unfunny jokes, and just kind of talks 24/7. You don't want that. I had to put my ipod on to get some rest of this guy. I do not recommend... More

Possibly aimed at the younger crowd but we're in our 40s and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's all about having a laugh and getting wet so if you're boring and don't like water, stop in Cairns.

It was a weird kind of fun. The tour guide was crazy, but entertaining and interesting. I won't give anything away, but defiantly worth it!

Started with a boring early saturday morning bus ride, but the staff (cousin amber), she just doesnt give up. She tried her best, in the most immature way possible for us to have a great experience and she did a great job. With friendly games, and conversations, it was a great 12 hour trip with food included. Even had a... More

I'd heard great reviews from travel operators regarding this trip and I certainly wasn't disappointed. From the off, the driver Cousin Rob, got everyone involved and for someone who is travelling alone this made it much easier as it broke the ice really quickly. The places we visited were stunning and it was a lot of fun sliding down rocks,... More

I overall had a good experience. Having done more tours around Cairns I realise that Uncle Brian's is one of the best organised and really tries to make the passengers connect. Being a solo traveller this is enjoyable. Breakfast and snack were poor but lunch was good. I enjoyed the spot - though four swims is too much for me... More

This day was fantastic. I feel like I would have had fun regardless at these locations, but the effort and commitment of our guide (Brad) to show us all the best fun to be had and keep us singing/laughing all day was brilliant. The absolute highlight of my trip to Cairns.

Extremely well run and organized tours. My sister and I did the fun, falls, and forest tour. The sites were great and we even got to see a platypus. The tour guide Brad was AMAZING and so much fun. I have never had so much fun on a tour! I highly recommend this for anyone visiting cairns.
