Relaxed Fun & Beautiful Places

This tour was such an easy way to see some of Australia’s most beautiful places. Epic trees, massive rocks, cold waterfalls, great music, and a super-fun & interesting guide, Gabs, made this day unforgettable. Keep it up! If anyone gives you a tough time, they’re lame.

Slip & Slide!

Had a wonderful day with Gabs! Grandmother aged 70 and grandchildren ages 17 & 15 were equally entertained. They loved sliding down the rock and I loved watching!! Highly recommend!!

Absolutely fabulous

Awesome day from go to whoa.! Magnificent scenery. The serenity & beauty of forest nature highlighted by spectacular waterfalls. Sheer joy of swimming in pure deep pools & the adrenaline rush of Josephine falls natural waterslide. Thanks to our gorgeous guide gabby who made our day fun, bonding us with her quirky jokes, music & dance, food & treats. Top of my tour list (at 60yrs l have done plenty). ta for an unforgettable day. It was my dream day. I was better prepared for than most for cool wet day but wish I had an even warmer jacket with me after so much swimming, your blankets were needed. thanks for great day.

Unforgettable Experience

It might have been winter in Australia, but we beat the cold and had so much fun on this day trip! It had been recommended to us by a friend, and after three days on the Great Barrier Reef we were ready for a change of scenery and the rainforest was a fantastic choice. Will definitely be recommending to friends if staying in the Cairns area! A few thoughts: 1) pickup was easy and flexible; 2) Daz was incredibly informative and entertaining (and had great music!) - we learned so much about the area; 3) the locations are so beautiful and each was different from the last; 4) it was super cold (I mean, even in the summer, these are bodies of running water so I'm sure they're always cold), but as soon as you jumped in you got over it! 5) my husband and I could have played on that natural waterslide all. Day. Long.

Waterfall fun

Had such a great day with our guide Daryl. He is very knowledgeable, and always trying to get a laugh. Took us to some great waterfalls + view points and also found us some crocs to see! Water was a bit on the chilly side but we powered through 😆

Amazing Day!

Our tour guide Tery was so funny. We all had a very relaxed day full of laughter. We were a group of just 15 people so you could talk to everyone easily. We visited some waterfalls, made some great pictures, had some lunch and fruit and Tim Tams. Tery stopped and just bought us all some bananas and then showed us how to open a coconut. There was no stress and everything was very relaxed and spontaneously. The price is more than okay for what is offered. 👍🏽

A fun day - minus the racism

I thoroughly enjoyed the day on the Atherton Tablelands Tour. The weather was perfect and we visited a number of very beautiful swimming locations. The guide was friendly and the music in the bus was surprisingly very good.

Waterfalls Tour with Gabs

Gabs was the best guide I ever had in a daytrip. Always joking and making the whole bus laugh! The trip was even better than I expected. Only a small group of 16 people. We went swimming under a waterfall and the lunch option was great! Would definitly recommend the trip.

Fantastic day thanks to Gabi our tour guide

We did the Atherton tour waterfalls and rainforest it was stunningly beautiful, but the cherry on the cake was our tour guide Gabi, not only was she very knowledgeable about the area but also made the day fun, she didn’t over egg the cake by yapping too much about nothing like some guides do, she kept everyone on our tour interested without it becoming boring, she was funny Knowledgeable and just a great person to spend the day with. Thank you Barefoot Tours but most of all thank you Gabi xx Ps the lunch and coffee was also very good.

What a tour

The tour was great. Getting to see all the waterfalls and being able to swim and have a laugh. Was just what we were looking for when we booked the trip. The tour guy (Terry) was very knowledgeable and has some great stories to tell. Would recommend the tour to all my mates

Great day out!

I don’t normally write reviews but I felt I needed to for this trip. If you’re in cairns for even just a day its worth booking this up and heading to the waterfalls. You’re fed and you’re looked after all day, we were told so much information not just on the waterfalls but anything to do with cairns or even a potato. Daryl was a great tour guide & Chelsea was awesome too. Definitely recommend 👌🏼

Best part of my Cairns trip

It was amazing! Our guide, Russel was super knowledgeable and friendly and was able to maintain a very chilled out atmosphere throughout the tour. It was organised so that we were able to visit 5 beautiful locations in the one day, and spend enough time at each of them. There was always enough food, snacks, coffee and tea to keep us going and the bus was air conditioned with music playing. The locations were all stunning, great swimming and walking locations
