“Top way to see Port Douglas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

I recently went on K-Star's Walking Tour. Absolutely a fantastic way to see the sites of Port Douglas. It is great to see a local who has broad knowledge of the area, which is conveyed in a very entertaining way. I highly recommend people visiting Port Douglas to take a tour. You wont be disappointed. Be sure to have a camera ready, as you never know what you may see along the way.

“Fun, budget-friendly way to explore Port”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

I went on K-Star's Walking Tour about a month ago, and it's still one of the best activities I've done in Port Douglas. I'm a bit of a history buff, so it was great to learn about the town's origins way back in Captain Cook's time, and how the town has developed since.
Having travelled from interstate, I also loved the info on the Great Barrier Reef and local Indigenous tribes and their history.
It's a great (budget-friendly!) way to spend a couple of hours!

“Recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Highly interesting and informative. Kevin has a broad knowledge of the local area both recent and historically, European and Indigenous, and conveys his knowledge in an entertaining and interesting way. A stroll around a marvellous town with beautiful views and a 5 star tour guide ready to answer and expand on any questions or interests of the party. The drink stop is a great time to have a rest, get out of the heat debrief. Would do this again and would recommend this as a very fairly priced tour.

“Great for children too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Kevin organised a tour for children and our little one loved it! It was fun and informative and would recommend it in a flash. He included a lot of local knowledge and his approach with all the kids was great. It's also lovely to be able to do something different while living or visiting Port Douglas that keeps the legs and the brain going!

“For little and big kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

I've had the pleasure of being on two of Kevin's walking tours in two different capacities. One was the regular (but by no means plain) option. The other was a school holiday special walking tour which incorporated the kids by having visual and physical games with prizes, songs, and quizzes on animals and places with the information he has been providing, of which there is plenty. From bush remedies and history/historical sites, to detailed facts about the original indigenous families that first occupied North Queensland. A very good idea for a business, should be more of them in places like Port Douglas, but then you have to have a good guide as well and Kevin exceeded in all areas, good info, good humour and a very enjoyable way to see Port Douglas and find out more about it. I've lived up here for a while now and realised how little I knew about the place I was living. Well done son, hope it all keeps going well for you B-)
