“Friendly and unpatronising.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The lady and gent here were fantastic. Always wanted to hire a scooter on a holiday and not only was it cheap but more importantly, the chap was so unassuming, helpful and friendly that it gave confidence in what we we doing. He even managed to convince my wife to be dinked while I rode! If you've ever slightly thought about hiring a scooter, see these guys. It was the best couple of hours of fun we had.

“Great Motorcycle and Scooter Rental in Port Douglas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

This is a great little rental place in Port Douglas. There's a selection of scooters (50cc), which don't require a motorcycle licence to ride. If you have a bike licence then there are larger scooters (250cc), a large capacity Suzuki cruiser and several Suzuki 650 V-Stroms. V-Strom as was our choice as it came with a top box, which was very convenient for taking beach towels, maps and cameras etc.

There's loads of great stuff to see; Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge are lovely. Also the road from Cairns to Port Douglas is absolutely spectacular - one of the best biking roads I've seen.

Prices are reasonable and the service is great - recommended!

“Get Away From The Crowds.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2008

We had 9 days in Port Douglas in Dec08. We loved the place but wanted to explore the surrounding countryside. Because it was so hot we decided to take a motorcycle. I have not ridden a motorcycle for over 30 years so my wife decided a 250cc scooter was the best option.
For our first trip we rented for 8 hours. A very reasonable 90$. We planned a circular route from Port Douglas taking in Mossman, Mareeba,Kuranda and Cairns. We had lunch at Kuranda and visited the Barron Falls. The drive back from Cairns to Port Douglas was particularly spectacular. All in we did about 120 miles and it was a full day.
Our second trip we rented for 4 hours. We went to Mossman and on to Silky Oaks for lunch. in a lovely setting. Had a swim in the river. Far better than going to Mossman Gorge, away from the crowds.
We then went up as far as Daintree Village calling at Wonga Beach on the way back to Port Douglas.
Both trips were great value and interesting. Fiona at the rental shop was extremely pleasant and helpful.
Overall highly recommended!
