This was a fun way to get around and Grub is a diamond! We went to the Shannonvale winery and really enjoyed both the road trip and the wine!

“Trike it you'll definitely like it!”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

I booked a Grub's trike tour as a surprise for my Mum, and we had a truly fabulous time. Grub met us on the trike and my Mum was blown away! We were soon off speeding down the roads and up through the rainforest to our private fruit wine tasting tour. The wine certainly helped us relax and ready for the ride to the look out point. If you have time when you are in Port Douglas and want to do something a little different, then you should definitely sign up for this tour! Grub can

“An experience!”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

If you want to do something that is different whilst staying in Port Douglas and have thought about Karunda Scenic Railway - forget it! Go and hire Grub and his trike for the day. We started out at 9.30 in the morning - a wonderful decent hour of the day - on the back of one of Grub's Trikes (Triumph bike adaptation with trailer) and set off up the coast towards Cape Tribulation. We stopped to be introduced to Boris who's about 12 foot long, has two very menacing eyes and I didn't count his teeth and had a cup of tea with great cakes and biscuits, then back on the bike uptowards Cape Trib to where the rainforest meets the sea and it really does! Grub and his mate Stu had set up a bbq in the park with drinks on tap and then back on the bikes along the coast road - he was even able to get a Cassowary bird to appear although couldn't manage a 'roo. The afternoon stop was to a local ice-cream factory to taste the wares, very nice too! and then back to PD. And yes, he will open the throttle on the bike and boy is it good. The other thing is you never realise how many people you get to know in Oz when you are on the back of Grub's trikes as everyone waves and stops to get a photo.

I can't recommend enough you trying Grub's Trikes out - he's brilliant and a genuine chap who can talk for Oz as can Stu.

If you want run of the mill then do the railway but if you want something different do Grub do a google site and you will find him and he will be very accommodating if you want something different.

Just one thing, don't Grub change your name, it's you and your business - unique! And we found the drop bears!

“Brilliant trip - heaps of fun and a great way to see the countryside!!”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

This trip was highly recommended by one of the local tourist info centres and I can see why. Grub picked us up from our hotel and for the next 2 hours we were given an informative and fun tour of the beautiful rainforests surrounding Port Douglas. We chose the trip to Silky Oaks Lodge which is an amazing place where we were treated to a cold glass of wine and tropical fruits as we sat high up in the rain forest canopy. Grub was a brilliant and entertaining tour host as he answered our questions and provided details on the locality. The trikes are very comfortable and you are provided with helmets that are wired for sound so you can talk to each other during the trip. Can't recommend this one highly enough - don't miss it if you travel to Port Douglas!!
