In August we (husband & wife) thoroughly enjoyed a 20 day fully catered Tagalong Tour to Cape York. Our tour guide, Dave Hall was superb. The guide can either make or break a tour and Dave certainly made our trip a wonderful experience. Dave's local knowledge and passion for the history and geography of the area was amazing & evident... More

5 nights round trip from Cairns to Seisha on the cargo ship MV Trinity Bay was very different to cruise ship trips. Just watching the loading/unloading and doing the shore tours of Horn and Thursday Islands, as well as the road trip to 'The Tip' was really eye-epening converning WW11 sites and cultural small town living. The food was great,... More

Paul Stafford's Cape York Tagalong Tour is the best way to do the Cape. This was my second tour with Paul (having done the Simpson Desert last year) and once again it exceeded expectations. Not only is the Cape a magnificent landscape abounding with historical and cultural experiences, visiting with someone with the knowledge and passion of Paul, takes the... More

Be very careful when using this charter company. Very unhelpful, aggressive, and lacked any idea of customer service. A fishing charter without bait, high cost and quite deceptive as to how long he said he would take us out for.

We have just completed the Wilderness Challenge Cape York Advanced camping safari, to sum the trip up it was the best two weeks holiday we have had for a long time. The guides Tom,Mark and Mick provided a first class service for my wife and I and the other 8 passengers. The advanced trip specialised in taking us to remote... More

Everything you read about Paul is true. The only way to do the Cape! As we travelled on our 18 day tour we came across the group doing the 20 day tour with Dave. It seems that it doesn't matter who you do your tour with, you will not regret your decision to see the Cape this way. We were... More

Our trip to Cape York with Paul Stafford of Tagalong Tours Australia was fantastic. We spent 18 days travelling to places like Chillagoe in southern Cape York to the northern most tip of Australia. The 4x4 experience was excellent as Paul's knowledge of the terrain and the water crossings allowed us to enjoy the "drive" without a worry in the... More

My wife and I recently had a wonderful time with our 4WD on Paul Stafford's Tagalong Tours of Australia to the tip of Cape York for 18 days. Paul took us to many marvelous places that we would never have found on our own. He is a great experienced organiser and tour guide that made the whole trip very smooth.... More

Our tour guide, Dave Hall was outstanding - his knowledge of and passion for the region made our experience rich and exciting. He was a fabulous cook, had... More

The actual cape. Pointless. When I went during the silly season (July holidays) there was a line to get a photo with the sign saying northern tip. It was kind of like a line up at dreamworld or something. It is everything else away from the point that made this trip amazing. Stop everywhere possible, do the old telegraph track,... More
