Gone above and beyond!
We had originally booked this tour through Expedia online which gave us the total run around. We contacted Jay at Drtours and he managed to help us get our money back from a total mess up with Expedia and even book us on the rail & sky train one day before New Year’s Day when these should have been fully booked!
Jay made what could have been a nightmare of our holiday to an incredible experience.
Highly recommend drtours for all travellers coming to Cairns.
Thank you so much to Jay and for everything you did to make our trip more then what we could have asked for. We really appreciate it.


Amazing work by these guys. They go above and beyond the call of duty as tour agents for day trips in Cairns
