enjoyed all of it, but suggest the final destination (coffee farm) be changed to somewhere else. The cheese and chocolate factory amazing. For a wine lover was surprised to find I enjoyed the fruit wines, passionfruit my favourite

We did the tour today with Warwick, it was well conducted and a great insight into the history of the area visited. The morning tea and lunch were very enjoyable, and the fact there was only 6 in our party it great getting to know the people we spent the day with. I can thoroughly recommend this tour and urge...

What a great day this was! Warwick's knowledge of the local area was reflected in his excellent commentary... As he said himself he knows a little about a lot! The small group experience allowed for a personalised service that catered for those with special requirements. The places we visited were well chosen, and although the winery wasn't to my liking...

Started well, with the pick up on time, if not early, and then a day not to be missed in the hinterlands of Cairns. The contrast with the coast was evident once we climbed the hills and left the sticky heat behind ... super farmlands, great and knowledgable growers and guide, loved the macadamia nuts (and only wish you could...

We thoroughly enjoyed the overall experience, which was enhanced by the company we had on board the bus. There were definite highlights to the day. Lake Barrine was great, the curtain fig tree and Kauri pines, and the macadamia farm was outstanding. The farmers passion, explanations and pride in the presentation of his property was brilliant. We found him most... More

Food Trail Tours out of Cairns is absolutely excellent. So many places to go and food/wine to sample. We started at a Coffee farm and discovered how coffee is processed by the owners who were brim full of expertise and friendliness and made a great cup of Coffee. Next it was to sample fruit wines - what a range from... More

What a treat to share time with a wonderful group of van mates! There were 6 of us in total. This personalized food and drink experience was enhanced by the knowledge and personality of owner/operator, Warwick. He has planned every step of the way with thoughtfulness to make the day very enjoyable. He is attentive to all, as we traveled... More
