Excellent tour and great way to see Cape York with the support of a highly knowledgeable and experienced guide. Completing 2,900kms of some of the roughest and most challenging roads in Australia AND getting to visit the highlights of Cape York in only 18 days was made deceptively easy thanks to our guide John. In addition to his expertise and... More

When you want to experience the Cape Peninsula, this is the way to go!!! From the moment we booked till the drop off at the Coconut Resort in Cairns I felt very much as an appreciated guest. Our tour leader went out of her way to accommodate request of the travellers. For the birthday party of one of the guest... More

Just completed an 18 day Tagalong Tour of Cape York. What an amazing experience we had. Our guide John, had an enormous knowledge of the area. He was very professional throughout the tour and guided us through the Tele Track with ease. New friendships were formed with lots of laughter. We had new adventures, seeing things that we had never... More

I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone who has some off road driving experience and the willingness to explore and push boundaries. John our tour leader was a wonderful character full of amazing stories and very supportive to all through challenging stages. You get to see parts of north queensland you would be unlikely to see yourself and along... More

We just finished an 18-day Tagalong Tour of Cape York and seriously question the value of the trip and the attitude to customer service and safety. We bought the trip because of the excellent feedback about Paul Stafford and some first-class interactions with him in the lead-up to the tour. However Paul didn't run the tour. He sent Captain Grumpy... More

We spent 7 days on this tour in August 2016. We were driven from Cairns to Seisia over 5 days and flew back to Cairns from Horn Island on day 7. The transport was a small bus, seating 23 passengers. Except for we two Kiwis, everyone else was Australian. I gathered it is easier on vehicles not to take your... More

Cape York Peninsula, we made it just about a week ago as part of our drive around Australia. We have done the most Eastern point in Oz and now the most northern part of the country as well (not including islands and outer territories). It’s beautiful up here, lots of caravaners this time of year making the PDR a bit... More

I would recommend this trip with Tagalong, to anyone who has a sense of adventure but also wants to make sure they arrive home safely. The trip lived up to the description of the tour on the internet page - and more!!! The itinerary was varied. We took in history eg. indigenuous rockart, mining sites, Cooktown. We swam in rivers...

The Cape was a place I'd managed to avoid over the past 30 years of travel but was convinced it was time tio give it a go. Travelling as a group, we were fortunate to be retracing the routes of friends who had been previousely. There were a lot of highlights but the overall condition and exploitive nature of the...
