    The trip was great. However, I didn’t like the hostel in Airlie Beach. It was the worst one in this trip. Overall was great

    I enjoyed having a smaller, intimate group for a greater opportunity to bond. The tour guide was very kind, intuitive and he took care of us. I liked the variety of accommodation, each place was a different experience. Seen a lot in a short period of time.

    Noddy was a wonderful guide and the tour was amazing. Only thing that could be improved is the transportation from airlie beach to cairns as it was during the day and we missed out on a full day of the tour.

    Great from start to finish, only thing I would change is instead of staying in Airlie Beach for one night would have liked to get a night train instead of day train to Cairns, the hostel in Airlie was one of the worst I’ve stayed in and I would have... Show more
