A good short overview of the Townsville of the 21st century. The guide was well-infomed and friendly and happy to chat and answer questions. He was enthusiastic about Townsille--this is always a plus. Even though he had only 3 people on the bus--it was a Tuesday afternoon--I had no sense that he was giving us any less than the full service. Worth the money.

What a great way to find out the other highlights Townsville has on offer. A few hours spent with Toby Dean, the tour guide, and I had enough information to fill in my few days in Townsville. Toby was very informative, fun and pointed out other interesting places to visit besides the Strand. Can highly recommend this tour.

This is an excellent way to spend three hours of your visit to Townsville. My guide - Toby - was professional, informative, engaging and just outright great. The tour company confirmed my pickup details the day before and the bus picked me up where and when promised. I spent three hours driving around Townsville and I learned a huge amount about the history and current activities in the area. Castle Hill is a stunning point to get a few of the entire area, there are walking paths to various lookouts and the views over to Magnetic Island and the hinterland are marvellous. I spent time at Jezzine Barracks, where I heard about and saw the commemorations to the military history of the area and the people. A short stroll along The Strand to get the feel of the area is lovely - it's a very nicely developed and well maintained part of town. The port is busy and going ahead, as are the commercial and entertainment districts. I saw all this in three hours, as well as learning of good eateries, museums, art galleries and activities. Overall, it's a very interesting and value for money tour which I would recommend for anybody wanting to get a good overview of the area, or see the highlights in a short time. Toby is supremely knowledgeable and loves to impart everything he knows - it shows, he is full of very useful information on a broad range of topics regarding Townsville. I was delivered back to my drop-off point as promised. Since that tour, I have relied on several good tips I picked up to visit other sites and do other things, it that was well worth it. Thanks Toby, it was totally marvellous.
