Informative and funny
Food and wine tour - the tour guide was very informative and funny. All the food was delicious, tastings were small but yummy. Wines weren't the highlight. Delicious macadamias!

This tour gave us a great insight into the tablelands
This was the best tour we went on whilst in Cairns. Thanks to Warrick for running the tour with only 3 people and giving us such personalised attention for the day. This tour gave us a great insight into the tablelands and the produce that this area of the Cairns region produces. It was a very enjoyable day out. Thankyou

Entertaining and relaxed atmosphere.
When I get back to Cairns again, but who knows when I will do this tour again.
Warwick shared his wealth of local knowledge on topics of history, botany, geology, general interest, and the positive interaction with all the places we visited made us feel special. Entertaining and relaxed atmosphere.

We had a lovely time in Cairns and we want to thank you for the 2 trips we booked with you. The day at Kuranda was really good but the highlight for us was the Food Trail Tour. We thoroughly enjoyed that, it was so different and well worth the money. We have already sent Warwick from that tour an email to tell him how enjoyable it was and to tell him what a great driver Andrew was and have had a reply from him already.
It was good to have the tours booked in advance and to be picked up on time etc Thank you Jo and good luck for the future we will recommend Travstar to any family or friends that may wish to visit Cairns.
