Your Barefoot guides have all been involved in tourism and tour guiding for many years. They have traveled extensively throughout Australia and the world, finally settling down in one of their favourite places, Cairns in the beautiful Far North Queensland.
If you are looking for things to do in Cairns, ask your guide for some advice about Cairns… Cairns has so much to see and do, you’ll soon see why we at Barefoot Tours love Cairns so much!
Your Barefoot guides are all first aid trained, and are all excellent swimmers with experience in water safety, so if you tend to impersonate a rock while swimming, don’t worry, you’re in pretty good hands.

Captain Matty is back on the road, and has been working for Barefoot Tours since opening in 2010 (with a short break in between). Full of fun, adventure, passion and entertainment no two days is ever the same with Matty. His one-of-a-kind outrageous personality will have you in stitches all day. He is definitely one of our top 3 tour guides here at Barefoot Tours.
Throwing peace signs… Here’s Damo, you can’t get more Aussie than him, he is mainly all laughs and fun on tour… Damo is very easy going and laid back. Damo has been in Far North Queensland for 18 something’ years and obviously loves it here! Damo previously worked on a few different boats that heads out to The Great Barrier Reef, part of his job was making sure people felt comfortable and confident in the water, whilst snorkeling (he was also the chef on the boat!). Damo is a scruncher, you’ll know what we mean by this once you come on one of our tours! Another one of our top 3 guides here at Barefoot!
