What people are saying about Far North Queensland

From the bus pick up to the bus drop off, it was a highly professional and fun experience. Tom and Carlos went way above and beyond. They were both highly attentive, kind, encouraging and humorous. They made the experience highly safe and fun. My friend and I severely struggled but they were exceedingly helpful. A fun experience. A certain level of fitness required.
