What people are saying about 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...

Very informative so much history across a wide range of topics in the one place. Make sure you give yourself ample time to see everything. Plus we were fortunate enough to visit on a day there were local live acts performing ‘Tin Pannikin Project’ Some great talent made for a lovely afternoon.

Very interesting , life certainly has changed. A good couple of days to be spent take the time

It was a great afternoon. We really enjoyed it. Thank you Erik 5/5 stars from us
