What people are saying about Cairns

Snorkelling and Fitzroy Island were awesome

Booking and boarding were great, except for the fact that you can't get seating for a family of 5 because people put their bags on seats or sleep across 4 seats!!! Don't sit on bottom level, everyone gets sick. Fitzroy Island was great for swimming and snorkelling. Saw beautiful coral, fish and swam with turtles. Food is really expensive on island and not that great. Overall an excellent adventure, 3 kids aged 15, 13, 11 and mum and dad loved it. Heaps better snorkelling than Green Island.

Absolutely incredible to see the reef! Friendly, fun staff!

This was a great trip - the staff were thorough but not too serious and the made the day really enjoyable. Great spot to see the reef and good snorkelling equipment. Two great spots to see the reef which is an absolute must see - breathtakingly beautiful and would highly recommend. Lunch was yummy. My only concern was the sea sickness but the staff were really lovely and there’s not much that can be done about this! Such a wondrous, memorable day!

Overall a wonderful tour and great Guide; wanted more Kuranda time.

Given how much there was to see and do in Kuranda itself, the less than 70 minutes was unsatisfactory and the Palm Cove stop could be skipped entirely and that time spent well for up to 2 hours in Kuranda. We raced through Butterflies, birds and animals exhibits in the wild, missed see the village itself and its aboriginal culture entirely. However, we loved the train and tram rides and their stops with history, nature and cultural information!

Fruitful tour with excellent tour guide (Stu)

Stu is a passionate tour guide who provided detailed descriptions on the places stated in the tour and also other places passed by. With his informative yet funny descriptions, we all knew more about Cairns in a relax and harmonious atmosphere. We can feel Stu’s passion in his job and nearly thanks to him for leaving such an enjoyable memory for our trip.

It was a great hands on natural and informative experience to remember

I loved this tour as it really demonstrates the Aboriginal Culture. I learned so much of just how we can live off the land. Nature that we just walk past all can provide hidden remedies that now I have some knowledge of and can share with others. Keeping in mind for survival and connecting with the earth!
