I was bursting with excitement looking forward to this trip to the Cape....only to be so very disappointed that I never want to venture back to North Qld again. If you call getting tossed around in the back of an uncomfortable 4WD for 6 to 8 hours every day for a week a good time then this trip is for... More

An amazing 18 day tour from Cairns to the Tip and back, with an excellent group of people and John, who was a knowledgeable, down to earth tour guide (30 trips to the Cape!). Having been on the tour with bigmuz12 we were not that... More

Excellent tour and great way to see Cape York with the support of a highly knowledgeable and experienced guide. Completing 2,900kms of some of the roughest and most challenging roads in Australia AND getting to visit the highlights of Cape York in only 18 days was made deceptively easy thanks to our guide John. In addition to his expertise and... More
