This was an amazing experience. There were so many high points , but the main ones of course were walking to the tip and experiencing the sunset over Albatross bay. Paul , our guide was extremely supportive, generous, professional , knowledgeable and just a great bloke. We travelled most of the cape and learnt so much about our history. The... More

Contrary to the reviewer (June 2009) we found the trip very competitively priced. All our dealings with the company were of the highest standard. From the first phone call they were most helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Torrential rain had fallen on the cape the weekend before our departure on the next Tuesday. This meant a change of itinerary.... More

As there departure date got closer, they called Heron Airlines only to be told their tour was cancelled. NO COMMUNICATION! MONEY GONE... After requesting an refund more than 6 weeks ago, many...

This is the way to see plenty of what the cape has to offer in an affordable and time efficient way. We did the 20 day trip and are really happy with what we experienced during this time. Doing a tag a long was the way to go: the guide was really experienced which meant we saw things that many... More

My two teenage daughters and I had a unforgettable, fascinating and fun 18-day adventure from Cairns to The Tip and back with Tagalong Tours. The diversity of the landscape was amazing, from tropical rainforest in the Daintree to volcanic lunar landscape at Hann River, from the stark rock formations at Balancing Rock and to the stunning sandy beaches of Seisia,...

We travelled as a couple with Heritage Tours on a 12 day camping safari. We were the only English people amongst 12 Aussies and the German guide - Uta. She was excellent, a fabulous driver managing to dance across the roads in a 25 seater, she was also extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the land, flora and fauna and... More

I run by car from Cairns more than 12 hours and go north. Air is very delicious in Nature! There is a special thing, and the trip will be comfortable if it is a four-wheel drive car though there is not it. I recommend daytime movement.

There is no doubt that parts of Cape York are spectacular and travelling there is certainly a wonderful adventure. Be prepared however for the other side of the ledger. The roads we travelled weren't actually as bad as we had expected, but there were more than a few places where litter and weeds were taking away the wild beauty. Something... More

Travelling with our teenagers with Tagalong Tours to the tip of Cape York will be a truly memorable experience for a very long time. It was definitely the bucket list holiday we hoped for. Our guide John ensured our 4WDing was safe, fun, adventurous, even for beginners like us. The 18 day itinerary had something for all of us and... More
