      Cairns in a Day
      We were the only visitors on our morning river cruise. The weather was cloudy with occasional heavy showers. This didn't dampen our experience. The skipper was Jacob, and he was very knowledgeable about the Trinity Inlet and its surrounding countryside. As we were the only passengers, he was able to give us his full attention and answer any questions. We were unable to spot any crocodiles even though the extensive mangrove forests make a great hiding spot. We did see an Australian Jabiru, or Black-Necked Stork with a 2.3 metre wingspan. Lunch was at Dundee's Restaurant, a short stroll along the boardwalk from where the river cruise boat moors. We both had fried salmon with salad and Cajun spicy sauce. The salmon was mouth-watering and superbly cooked, and the staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. After lunch we had sufficient time to walk back to our nearby hotel, avoid the passing showers, and freshen up for our afternoon City Highlights bus tour with Chris the driver and commentator. His commentary was almost continuous, as well as being informative and amusing. While we'd visited most of the highlights on previous visits to Cairns, it was well worthwhile seeing them again. Highlights were the magnificent stained glass "Creation" windows at St Monica's Catholic Cathedral, the Cairns Museum, and the delicious freshly made scones at Ozmosis Cafe in Edge Hill and, Cairns Botanic Gardens. From Campbell's Lookout there was a great view out over the growing city of Cairns, towards Trinity Inlet and Mt Gorton in the distance. Finally, we drove further north to Palm Cove on the Coral Sea. There was a strong wind and a rough sea, so not the more common scene of golden sand and coconut palms. We did see one person braving the crocodiles and rough sea and zooming up and down on a Hydrofoil Board. Unfortunately, we were unable to drive up Barron Gorge to see the waterfalls as the road had been badly damaged from heavy rainfalls since last December. We had an enjoyable day, the combined tour was good value, and provided a good tasting of things to see and do in Cairns.

      Perfect for first time visitors to Cairns
      This tour was perfect for getting to know and understand Cairns. The river tour was excellent and Joe was a marvellous guide, very passionate about the river system and a wealth of knowledge. The coach tour gives a taste of Cairns highlights which covers the history (the museum is excellent) and the botanical gardens are lovely. Chris was a great guide and made the tour very enjoyable. Highly recommend if this is your first time in Cairns.

      Lots of history!
      Tour was amazing and filled with tons of information and history of Cairns. I can't give it a 5 star review because of how annoying it was to be shuttled around during everyone's pick up and drop off. However, it was pretty convenient, so I'm torn between what to actually think of the process.

      Great Customer Service and Knowledge!
      Maryanne helped us to reserve a scuba diving tour to the Great Barrier Reef outside of Cairns. SHE WAS AMAZING IN HER CUSTOMER SERVICE!! She even called me from her vacation to make sure all the details were correct. She knew when our cruise ship would be in port and when it was scheduled to leave and worked with our schedule to make sure we would be back in time. Highly recommend.

      A great afternoon tour
      The trip was well planned and went ahead despite only four people booked. Graham (aka "G") the tour guide, was very knowledgeable about everything we asked questions about. Very professional, personalble and knowledgable and made the trip worth while. A great way to learn about the history and lay out of Cairns from Graham and the museum guides, especially if you are visiting the area for the first time. A highly recommended tour. We really enjoyed it. Thanks G.

      A delightful day in Cairns
      Had a delightful tour of Cairns which included a local museum of the cities history. A church which commissioned a couple of local artist to create windows which were uniquely painted and treated of creation to current times. Stopped for a scone and tea and finished with the Botanical Garden. Our guide Chris was knowledgeable and easy to spend time with. Would highly recommend this tour.

      Terrific Cairns tour
      Chris was a terrific guide. Very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure everyone on the tour had a memorable experience. Chris individually dropped all guests off at their chosen destination which was awesome. A great tour and a must for travellers wanting a Cairns experience.
