This was a great tour! The driver was very knowledgeable and very friendly! My husband would have been happy just with the waterfall, but everything else was a bonus! The place we stopped at for tea was a quaint building and the tea and biscuits were yummy! It was very relaxing to stop there first in the morning. The waterfall was beautiful! My husband as always wanted to swim under and behind one and he was able to at this stop! The water was freezing for me but I still swam out to experience the falls and was glad I did. Luckily it was a warm day so I didn't take too long to warm up after. The park was also great, the history behind it was extremely interesting. We also did a few other stops on the way back that made this trip fun and unique! Would definitely recommend it!

I loved this tour. The driver was courteous and quite funny. We stopped at the Millaa Falls and we even got to some of the locals swim. It was amazing and I loved The Paronella Park.That one is a place to remember. My family and i enjoyed the ride as well as we stopped at a place called Frog on The Banana. We saw lots of locally sold fruits and vegetables. The trip was amazing .

Tour was very good but the lunch provided was not the best. Would have been better going to a bakery for sandwiches and coffee.

Enjoyable trip. A great shame that Paronella Park has decayed to such an extent but the guide and period photographs provide evidence of what a unique and sophisticated resort it was and the imagination and hard work that went into creating it.

Really interesting tour. Our guide Steve was very knowledgeable on the tablelands, the villages, their economy and industry, and the history. It was a startling change from the beached of Cairns, and incredibly beautiful. Paronella Park was the highlight for me from this trip. An amazing place with a fascinating history. As beautiful in it's run down condition, lending a magical air, as i imagine it was in it's heyday. Highly recommend this tour.
