Had a Magical Day In Spite of the Rain

Darryl was a fantastic guide full of great stories and knowledge about the rainforest and Aboriginal culture. The day of our tour was our last in the area and unfortunately there was a cyclone moving in. It rained most of the day and a few of the stops were too unsafe for swimming due to the rising water levels. In spite of this, Darryl made the trip fun and still managed to get us to some amazing swimming spots and other beautiful sites. We learned so much and had wonderful time. The trip included an early morning tea break with snacks and a light lunch later. Thanks a lot Darryl for a great rainforest experience. This is definitely something that I would do again. The landscape is breathtaking and there is so much to see and do.

Waterfall wonderland

My 21 year old daughter and I did this tour today and absolutely loved it. Our guide Daryl was full of information but also allowed us time to relax and listen to some music during the drive. Beautiful scenery, great swimming spots and no stress. Great trip and excellent value for money.

The bigger the the rain, the bigger the waterfall...The bigger the waterfall, the bigger the adventure!

What an exciting day! My family and I had THE best day with our very enthusiastic, and informative tour guide, Arthur on the Athertons Tablelands Waterfalls tour! I could not think of a better way to spend my birthday than by chasing waterfalls and rainbows until we came to the "Cathedral," a 500 year old tree of life. This tour let us set our own pace. My senior Mom and two teenage children were all satisfied. Thanks for the memories and beautiful pics to last a lifetime! :)

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!!

We didn’t stop laughing from the moment we stepped onto the bus - Bruce was an absolute legend!

What an incredible tour! We didn’t stop laughing from the moment we stepped onto the bus - Bruce was an absolute legend! 12 hours of breathtaking sites, laughs, great music and riddles that were no match for Smarty Pants Shelley! Bruce takes time to find out about everyone on the tour, you arrive as strangers and leave as friends! Here’s one for your next tour Brucey.... what goes up a chimney down, but can’t go down a chimney up?

Had an absolute blast on our barefoot tour to the Atherton Tablelands.

Had an absolute blast on our barefoot tour to the Atherton Tablelands. Our guide Arthur was incredible and went above and beyond to make us all comfortable and relaxed while giving us fun facts about the Tablelands. He was super informative while keeping us all engaged. He tailored our tour to suit our small group and I could not thank him enough for our day and would highly recommend Barefoot Tours!!

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.

We went on this tour today and it completely exceeded any expectations we had. Our tour guide, Pete, was the friendliest and most knowledgeable guide and he really made all of the group feel included and part of a team! He showed us tree kangaroos, a platypus and some amazing waterfalls. The scenery is spectacular. Pete went out of his way for us, even stopping at the supermarket to get us some vegetarian lunch! I wish he organised tours up and down the county as we would certainly be booking on some more! Thanks a lot :)
