The guides on our tour, Macio and Brendan, were fantastic and made our tour a lot of fun. Not only did our guides take us to lots of interesting places, including Babinda Boulders and Lake Eacham amongst others, but rather than just taking us to these places, they took us to experience and enjoy them.

We had the most amazing trip with James on Thursday. He was a fantastic guide; so interactive and friendly. We had a lovely tour group and it was such an amazing tour. We saw so many sites! We travelled over 300km - giving testament to just how much we got to see. But don’t worry you’re not stuck in a bus all day! We had 9 different stops; including 4 swimming sites. The food was perfect; muffins, cakes and fruit for morning tea, diy sandwiches for lunch with lots of choices and Aussie biscuits for afternoon tea. The weather was great up there; a little bit cooler than in Cairns so was great for exploring. We got to see a few natural wildlife too. Could not recommend this tour more. They bring along a waterproof camera and you get all the photos for free which was great! Went with 2 adults and a 20 and 16 year old and we all loved it! Thanks so much!!!

What an amazing experience! From the minute we checked in to the minute we were dropped back at the hotel we enjoyed our experience. Our tour leader, James, was knowledgeable on our surroundings, including the animals. He provided great insight. The areas we visited were magnificent. Our safety was of upmost importance which was great for anyone feeling nervous. Enjoyable and fun tour suited to all ages! Would travel with them again.

Spent a fantastic day with tour guide James - highly recommend this day trip especially if you can go with James! Great scenery, taken to lots of “secret” places only known to the guides with an interesting and informative commentary along the way. Get to go swimming in some stunning locations and get up close with the waterfalls. Lunch is shared with the group which is a great way to meet people. Would really recommend this trip.
