What people are saying about Far North Queensland

We had a wonderful and educated afternoon with Eric. He was fantastic, gave us a great insight to the city of Cairns, as well as a very knowledgeable tour. The places he took us were exactly why we booked the tour in the first place. Everything was well timed and planned. The only sad part was saying goodbye to Eric at the end of the day, as we both felt like we'd met a friend. If he is ever down the G-Coast way, tell him to hit us up and it will be our turn to show him the sites...

We enjoyed the city tour with Erin(our guide). Provide lot of information about the city from past to now.. would recommend everyone for the tour
