I did enjoy the tour. The tour guides were terrific. I especially enjoyed Port Stewart with the Aboringal Elder and at Laura Split Rock with Aboriginal guide. That was something very special. Thank you

My tour all went like clockwork and lived up to my expectations. On the cruise and camping trip we had excellent meals. The staff at our pre-tour accommodation were ultra friendly and helpful, especially when I left my mobile behind. I appreciate the pre-tour suggestions for the best date to travel to the far north and advice regarding Cairns tours and then help booking them.
It simplified everything for me and I'll certainly be recommending the trip to family and friends.
Hopefully down the track I can do another tour with you.
Many thanks

My 15 daytrip to the top of Cape York was great. The two driver guides, Danny and Terry were excellent , their knowledge of the area especially the remote Lockhart River area was outstanding. I would highly recommend this trip and company to anybody who wanted a personalised small group tour to Cape York .

We loved our Cape York Adventure. The tour guides on both the Trinity Bay (Maurine) and on the 4WD land component (Hirani) were 'top class', our travelling companions in the group were very mixed and interesting people, and the staff generally throughout did their utmost to ensure we saw and did as much as possible to quench our adventurous thirst.
The 'Trinity Bay Experience' is now on our not to be missed travel guide 'to do' list. Excellent food and bevereges, welcoming crew and plenty to see and engage the senses along the way.
It was a bonus and pleasant surprise when we finally disembarked at Seisia, meet up with Hirani (our Squadron Leader, Friend and Mentor) and the trusty 4WD which would take us on the wonderful journey through a selection of FNQ offerings and back to Cairns. Truly a journey to cherish, and one that's up there with others in our most memorable journeys basket..

Greg and I enjoyed every minute of the 8 day trip. Mick our driver/guide was extremely affable, A most competent driver, and also good at a BBQ. He had a great knowledge of the history of the pioneers and pastoralists in the areas he took us through. The accommodation and food was excellent. Especially the packed lunches.

We both enjoyed our trip - an experience of a life time. The tour of Horn Island was great.
Loyalty Beach shared accommodation was also great and the staff were fantastic and the food was great. Fruit Bat Falls were another highlight. Bramwell Station (FANTASIC) Food there was great and the entertainment spot on.
Lakefield National Park was excellent. The total experience was amazing and we totally enjoyed the company of the other guests. The Driver Mick as very knowledgeable and entertaining. The booking process went so smoothly.
We have no hesitation on recommending Cape York Tours to our family and friends for a fantastic Holiday.

I very much enjoyed the camping tour. I thought it was very well organized and everything went perfectly, perhaps partly due to the military precision of our guide. It was a unique experience and I will probably never do anything quite like this again.
The procedure was very straightforward and I appreciated the follow up/ pre travel information and the prompt reply to my questions.

We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The guides were amazing, and the food excellent, taking in to consideration the remoteness of our adventure. The trip was value for money!!

Our trip to Thursday Island was very interesting, as was Horn Island.

I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Cape York, I would have to say everything was a highlight - I guess because it was so different to any other travel that I have done in recent years.
Andrew was an amazing driver/guide, his knowledge and enthusiasm was incredible and his eagerness in sharing ‘his' Australia was rewarding to we city dwellers. Also, I appreciated his attention to those of us with dietary requirements, especially my food allergies. A thoroughly friendly and personable man who certainly ‘made’ our trip.
The truck was more comfortable than I had anticipated and the rotation of seating worked well.
Accommodation was a bit rustic, but we expected that and it was more than adequate.

Hi Tammy,
We returned last night from a memorable 15 day camping tour of Cape York and would like to commend you for your excellent service.
Our two guides, were outstanding with their knowledge of the natural environment & local history.
They were great company, provided wholesome meals,drove safely at all times & encouraged bonding of the group. We had a lot of fun & made some great new friends.
We're glad we chose to travel in in a smaller group & found the troup carrier vehicle ideal.
Our guides went out of her way to insure that we had the best time possible.
It certainly was money well spent & we will be recommending you to others considering a similar trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to "the tip". OUr guides were amazing and provided a huge amount of information, great meals and lots of fun.
I have to say that from my first contact with Cape York tours everything was confirmed immediately and any queries I had were responded to promptly. Thank you

Thanks I had a terrific tour. Good tour guide and driver Gave me great support enabling me to walk to the tip of Cape York with his help. Very knowledgeable and engaging. Encouraged participation within the group and respected those who didn't want to be as involved ie myself. Exceptional site visits and extraordinary views and scenery.
Our accommodation with en-suite was very good with only Bramwell Station being cramped and a little uncomfortable but given the environment and the uniqueness of this station it was reasonable.
All evening meals where good to excellent. Overall a good trip and enjoyed the many exceptional sites and history about the Cape as well as seeing the fauna and flora.

Hello, I just wanted to let you know my husband and I did the 15 Day camping tour and we were thoroughly impressed with the whole tour. Our driver was very professional with his organisation but yet made us feel very relaxed with our holiday as well. We met great people which also made this a very enjoyable experience.
Thank you

Me and my husband both had a great trip although the one day of very heavy rain we had in Weipa meant that the rivers were too high and/or roads closed which meant we couldn’t go to either Iron Range or Wakefield N.P.’s. Both the driver and operator are to be commended for filling our itinerary with other options when the weather proved tricky. We still enjoyed travelling through all the remote wild areas and up to Thursday and Horn Islands.
Our driver was an excellent driver and cook and looked after us all very well.
Finally, the booking process was straight-forward and staff were always quick to respond to any queries I had.
Thanks Ann

Thanks for your email - I had a wonderful time in Cape York - the whole trip was fantastic and thankyou for all your help. I just want to say a couple of things:
Hiranyi - the guide - was fantastic. Could you pass this on to the hierachy - she was very professional, a lovely person and, as I have said, was great in every aspect.
I think a day, or extra time, in Cooktown, and perhaps an overnight stay on Thursday Island would be great. There is a lot to see there.

This might be a little difficult to arrange and maybe an extra day or two would need to be incorporated, but I thought it was worthwhile mentioning.

However, I really did have a great time and, once again, thanks for organising it.

Thanks

Brilliant! Did everything and saw everything we wanted. Danny was knowlegable and friendly and entertaining. This relaxed style made us enjoy every minute and if it wasn't for Mel at Cape York Tours organising it all for us, we would not have had such a great time. Even Danny was so relaxed he forgot what day it was.

Hi Birgit

We had a fantastic trip to the cape. It was a real adventure and we didn't really know what to expect on reaching some destinations. The drivers were very friendly, safe drivers, and very knowledgeable on the history of the cape. We had a lovely bunch of fellow travellers with plenty of laughter.

Thanks

Hi Andrew,
We had a wonderful trip through Cape York. It turned out that our driver was the owner who was getting to know his customers. he was very informative and entertaining. His assistant chef cooked amazing meals on the camp fire. WE were very satisfied with the tour and with the service provided by your company, regards,

Hello,

Yes, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Everything worked out beautifully. The truck was a dream to travel in, considering the corrugations on some parts of the road and the tour director and assistant were very knowledgeable and helpful. The meals were outstanding, considering the facilities our cook worked with. The tents were easy to put up and pull down and were quite roomy, but we're glad we hired the stretchers. The camp sites were also better than I expected with quite good facilities (for a bush camp). Unfortunately, I do not have a computer (use the one at the library for emails) and am not very good at technology. I have no idea how to email photos but I am sure others in the group would do this. The group were all really nice, very compatible and made good travelling companions, enhancing the fun and socialability of the whole trip. Thank you for arranging it for us. We may be interested in a trip to the Kimberley/Darwin for next year but haven't began to look at it yet. I note that your company do that as well so will look into it further soon.

Yours faithfully,

Jackie

Thank you for your part in enabling me to travel on a 15 day Cape York camping tour. I was really impressed with the owner's commitment to ensuring our tour was enjoyable and that we were able to complete the tour despite some unexpected vehicle issues. Given the roads we travelled nothing can ever be a surprise! Both her tour leaders were competent and committed to ensuring that every person enjoyed the tour. They have a wonderful knowledge and interest in the history, flora and fauna of the Cape.

I would also like to thank Cathy and Danny for catering for my special diet needs being gluten and lactose free. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them.

I certainly would, and have recommended this company to others. I had a wonderful time, met some lovely people and learnt a lot of new things about my country.

Thank you once again.

Hello Girls,

Thanks for a great tour. Dee and Geoff, a great couple who gave us great food and good company. We were lucky our group got along quite well so that was a great assets.
I have certainly past on what a great time we had a lent the pamphlet you gave us, to show people what you had on offer.
It was very educational and I learnt a great deal from thoroughly enjoyed the Lama Lama people and Elaine an amazing woman.
Also this was my first camping trip. I learnt how to put up and take down the tent in no time. Geoff being a good teacher. Dee a great cook and I am sure that we all gained a few kgs.
But who cares I loved every morsel.

The boat trip up amazing and Jude and the crew all polite and the food amazing.

Thanks for a great time and I will still keep telling everyone about you.

Thanks regards

Hi
Having just returned to my home in the UK after having been on the 15 day tour from Cairns to The Tip with your company I thought you might like some feedback on how the trip turned out.

Firstly, the itinerary looked interesting and the idea of making such a trip in a small group was intriguing after having previously been on a 21 day tour from Perth to Darwin as a member of a much larger group.

Secondly and most importantly, I was very glad that we did go with your company because the tour was excellent in every respect. It more than met my expectations and as the tour progressed it became obvious that a lot of thought had gone into how the schedule would unfold and for that Cathy should be congratulated.

Thirdly, our driver/cook/guide and outback mentor, Danny, played a massive part in making the tour the success it undoubtably was. He has all the attributes required of a successful group leader and with him in charge I'm sure all trips in the future will be as successful as ours.

Many thanks for getting it right.

Kind regards
Rob

Hi

Thank you for your email. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of seeing the 'tip'. It was a fabulous trip and Hirani was a very competent and capable guide and driver. We were extremely lucky to have such good weather at the end of the season. My only comment/suggestion would be to have more time in Cooktown. This was a very interesting place and unfortunately we didn't arrive until late and were off early the next morning. Again, I would have loved to have extra time on Thursday Island perhaps missing Weipa. I must thank all the overnight destinations on their wonderful food and hospitality. For such remote destinations they were fantastic. I was in the travel industry for 20 years and would rate this trip among one of my best.
Thank you for the opportunity of feed back.
