He's definitely the very best tour guide. He has his own tour where he takes his passengers. He's very knowledgeable about everything and everywhere he takes people. I always recommend him to everyone.

A very good way to visit Atherton Tableland. Warwick was an excellent guide with interesting anecdotes and personal touch with a small group. Tasted fruit wine, some great cheeses, chocolate, visited coffee plantation, macadamia plantation, and had a good lunch in a restored country pub.. Far better way to see the area than the usual boring coach trip.

We have visited Cairns many times over the past 30 years and thought we had seen and done it all. However, this time we discovered Warwick's food and wine trail, a one-day (7.30am - 5.30pm) bus trip around some of the Tablelands' innovative and scrummy artisan foodie producers (cheeses and chocolate, macadamias, coffee plantation, fruit wines and liqueurs) and tropical...

It was thoroughly enjoyable and I was glad to have joined the tour despite its price (considering it was the same price as the reef tours but we screwed up anyway due to seasickness) The guide was very experienced and equipped with much knowledge throughout the tour and would point out interesting things on the way. He really witty and... More

I was prepared to deal with this tour mostly for my wife's sake, and so we had something to do while the reef tours were cancelled due to the Cyclone (Nathan) that was coming through. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed myself, with Warrick's friendly relaxed chatter about a huge variety of topics. I've had time to reflect,... More

Warwick J, Owner at Food Trail Tours, responded to this review

Tom, H Thanks for your feedback and comments. We are currently waiting for another plantation to complete major renovations. When that is complete people will have a quite different video, a drive around the farm, a look at the harvester (possibly not during harvest), and a look at some of the other equipment. More

Warick is a very funny guide with great deal of knowledge about the history, social and economic development of the region, and of course of various vegetations in the rain forest and food produces. It was a very interesting mix of rainforest, cheese, chocolate, macadamia, wine and coffee. We did buy quite a lot of cheese and some chocolate and... More

This is a great tour all in all. You get to go out to the less touristy parts of the Wet Tropics up around Cairns, meet the locals and try all kinds of locally produced food and beverages. We got a private tour since no one else had booked it for that day, so we got all the information and... More

Visits to macadamia orchards, cheese producers, and coffee plantations are just part of this tour where you not only see how local farmers work and taste their products; you also get to meet some of the farmers and learn how they have overcome often tough conditions to deliver high quality products. Our informative and passionate guide Warwick not only provided... More

This tour shows you more of the area than any rain forest tour. You meet the locals, see the countryside and the rain forest. This tour is owner operated. He really cares about you and is knowledgable of the places he brings you to. The ride is very comfortable. The vistas are beautiful. And the temps are cooler than in... More

If you only have time to take one tour this is the one to do. This is a owner operator guided tour and we loved it. We visited family farms, a tropical fruit winery, and a local private plantations on the Atherton Tablelands to see how coffee is grown and processed. Also a macadamia nut farm with the farm owner.... More
