Fully customised Private Charters

Group Charters Cairns

Tour your way with the best adventure nature tour in Cairns – Barefoot Tours! Check out the Atherton Tablelands (or anywhere in Cairns really) with a group of mates, family, work colleagues or any other groups.

We are not strict on timings, or even locations, we offer the flexibility on the day to be able to change it up a bit to suit your group… it’s okay to change your mind, it is your bus and your guide for the day, we just want you to have fun and explore our beautiful region!

Majority of people like to stick to our standard day tour, but don’t be fooled as there is plenty more we can offer or change and plan.

We are experienced in Tourism/travel around the Cairns region (not only the Atherton Tablelands), we can organize day trips or multi day trips from accommodation, other day tours, off-the-beaten track activities, community service projects, and we can completely customize our bus trips to suit each group from 10 people upto 28 people per bus with a maximum of 50 people per day.

“We love Bruce!
So much fun! Beautiful scenery, amazing waterfalls and a great tour guide. We didn’t stop laughing all day. Lunch was perfect too! It’s definitely a trip for people of all ages, some little uphill walks but nothing too taxing. I would definitely do it all over again and recommend for everyone.”  -Sarah, TripAdvisor Review (June 2018)
