Welcome to

Barefoot Tours, Cairns!

Take a dip under breathtaking waterfalls, swim in a volcanic crater lake, and slide down a natural water slide!

Typical, rushed, overpriced tour, blah blah blah blah blah…

Nah… Bugger That!

Such a good day!!

Regardless of the 6am wake up call to be ready to be picked up, our day was fab. Brucey the bus driver was amazing, he was so knowledgeable about this history and culture of the places we went to, giving us tips along the way. He went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect and it really was! The weather held out for us which we were all grateful for. The waterfalls and lakes and swimming holes were beautiful and I will 100% recommend to all my friends to use this tour when they’re in cairns. Thanks for an amazing day!!! Xxxx

This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever done!!!

From the bear hug in the morning till the time we left the bus at night... it was full of laughs, fun and I met the most amazing people on my tour. Also shout out to the guide who came with me down Josephine falls. If you are looking for a way to see lots of places in one day, then this is truly a unique tour experience you have to try!!

Great trip to the Atherton Tablelands - Add to your must-do‘s in FNQ

Booked this tour as a „filler“, cause I had a day to spare in Cairns. Tour was an absolute blast and is a must-do in FNQ alongside the Reef and a visit to the Daintree. Aside from the waterfalls (Josephine, Milla-Milla, and Dinner Falls), the Tablelands offer breathtaking views and entry into the rainforest. While the tour spends plenty of time in the bus, the tour is really diverting. Bruce and Darryl kept us entertained and engaged all day long. While the tour caters to backpackers and young work-and-travellers, it is also a great alternative to self-driving. Bruce and Darryl know what they are doing and you get lots of information along the way that a travel guide will hardly provide.

I really liked this tour.

I really liked this tour. I thought Jason/Simon/Matthew/Quentin was a really friendly, involved tour guide who made everyone feel welcome. He made the waterfalls such fun and should be an inspiration to all guides. The tour was well run and, most importantly, fun. Would highly recommend!

Amazing tour

This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our time in Cairns! We had Arthur as our guide, and he made the whole trip. Such a fantastic guide, with lots of facts and he was always checking that everyone was okay and enjoying the trip. He also let us choose how we wanted our time distributed during the whole day! Amazing day, and a big thank you to Arthur for being an amazing guide!

The Atherton Tablelands tour was awesome!

Our fantastic guide Dylan (who truly was barefoot the whole day btw) took us to 4 amazing sites where we could spend time, with a few other photo opt stops along the way. He did an awesome job of getting everyone involved by keeping the conversation going during the drive and encouraging participation at the sites. It was great to see strangers mingling with one another and not sticking with the people they came with. For a solo traveler this was especially enjoyable and made the experience that much better. The time schedule was flexible and Dylan allowed us to choose how long we wanted to stay at each location. If we wanted to chill we could chill and when we wanted to move on we could. The meals were satisfying for the trip; plenty of food. I think this is a perfect choice for anyone who wants to let their hair down and try some pretty cool shit. Thanks Dylan!
