Our guide Glen, was great. He was funny and knowledgeable about everything. The coffee experience was great, so was the Gallo cheese visit, loved it. We were expecting a winery visit, but the distillery was good. We don't really drink spirits much, so wouldn't have opted for that. Thank you Glen and a great group for a lovely day.

My husband and I contemplated about spending big dollars to go on day tours while in Port Douglas..instead of driving around ourselves. Well it was well worth every cent! We sat back and relaxed while being taken to unexpected places, some that were only accessible by the tour companies best decision ever, we went on three while visiting Port Douglas. Chris 1 on our Atherton Tablelands Food and Wine Tasting one was the best.
