I had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed every minute of it. The service was great and they catered really well to my dietary needs too.
Friday, September 12, 2014
The highlight for us out of the three day tour was the Reef trip. Outstanding crew, so organised and attentative, lots of fun.
Elvis was an added treasure!
Kuranda was nice, but abit long, but we did opt to come back early and that was not a problem.
Tour guide was awesome, real gem!
Great day even though it ws jammed pack, with good range of variety.
You have a fantastic bunch of people working for your organisation.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014
The tours covered more than our expectations and was total value for money. We didnt get bored for a moment..so I would recommend this to anybody visiting Cairns. It is especially good for the 1st time visitors as you get to see most things in limited time.
Friday, July 18, 2014
Highlight of the three days was the reef trip. Overall, the staff and bus drivers for all three activities were friendly, helpful, informative and contributed to the enjoyment of the days. I really enjoyed my holiday in Cairns and have lovely memories to reflect upon.
Monday, June 23, 2014

A standout of the 3 days way the tour to Cape Tribulation. Dan was a fantastic guide, had exactly the right balance of humour and information, but was not over the top. Thank you Dan for being such a professional.
Sunday, December 29, 2013
It was a wonderful experience.
Sunday, December 29, 2013
3 days tours were great. Our tour guide to Cape Trib was friendly and very informative. Unfortunately we did not see much of the reef due to bad weather, glass bottom boat was cancelled, however still had a good time on the Osprey V. The crew were friendly and entertaining. Would love to do it again on a clear day.
Saturday, December 14, 2013
The three days were awesome. Thank you so much!
Saturday, November 16, 2013
Awesome trip overall. We loved the diving especially. I was impressed with travstar and their willingness to accommodate us when our travel plans changed. I was disappointed when they failed to notify us that our dive trip had been cancelled due to problems with the boat, but they had us immediately rebooked on another trip that morning so it worked out great. We liked the Daintree tour, but were a little disappointed at the massive amount of time spent on the bus that day. I wish we had known before- we might have swapped that tour for another one that day.
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
Outstanding service. The staff were all very helpful and professional. We had a great time.
Friday, September 20, 2013
The tours were good value for money. Elvis on the Down Under Dive boat to the reef was very entertaining and helpful. All the tour guides were helpful and knowledgeable
Thursday, September 19, 2013
We enjoyed all the tours. Given the short time we had at Cairns, the tour helped us in getting a good experience of all the important highlights of the place
Friday, September 13, 2013
Reef tour was excellent, great service, great people and great trip. Rainforest trips were good, a lot of opportunities for pictures, value.
Friday, August 30, 2013
Loved the three trips, great value for money to see the sights of far NQ. did them on 3 consecutive days which was no problem whatsoever
Wednesday, August 07, 2013
The services were fantastic, will contact them again when back in the future.
Friday, July 12, 2013
Great way to see the best Cairns/FNQ has to offer in a short amount of time. Would highly recommend this package.
Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Great value for money whilst giving a broad range of experiences during our stay at Cairns. Pick ups from and back to Motel SO easy. All staff, whether they were driving buses, hosting tours or on the phone at Travstar were friendly and helpful. I booked online and got a last minute deal but also spoke to staff on the phone who were so helpful. Efficient friendly staff, so easy to organise and very enjoyable trips.
Monday, July 08, 2013
Well organized. Very funny on the boat to the reef
Thursday, April 18, 2013
Very enjoyable trips - worth paying the $$ to get to all three; however would be better if they were not all on consecutive days.
Wednesday, January 23, 2013
We had a great time on all three days, the staff were happy, courteous and always ready to answer any questions we had. I would recommend this package to anyone looking for an affordable tour combo.
Thursday, January 10, 2013
Awesome tours-very friendly & accommodating guides - interesting & covered a lot of things to do & see all in 1. Loved them all!
Saturday, November 24, 2012
We enjoyed all the tours, the reef tour was fantastic, the team were very professional, the live entertainment was a bonus!
Tuesday, October 30, 2012
These three trips were excellent - providing a brilliant way of seeing the attractions around Cairns in the best possible way!
Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Excellent tours!! All tour guides and bus drivers were friendly, knowledgable and approachable. Great value for money and highly recommend!! Especially loved the reef tour :-)
Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Great value for money....the only negative (and it is a small one) is that both my husband and myself would have loved more time at the wildlife park. This sentiment was also echoed by a number of other travelers on the bus. However, overall the three days were brilliant and a fabulous way to see around the region. We have already been recomending this to our friends!
Wednesday, March 28, 2012
Would do it again in a heartbeat we would like a couple of days at Kuranda love it with the reef tour it was great
Wednesday, March 28, 2012
We found all our hosts exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. We had a perfect honeymoon. Food and service excellent. We would have no problems booking with you again on our next adventure.
Monday, March 26, 2012
This was a fantastic package. Great value for money.
Sunday, March 04, 2012
Daniel, our driver and guide was awesome! We needed more time at the wildlife park/zoo. The ride to lunch was too long for what we received, although the food was OK.
Monday, January 16, 2012
great tours ... the best being the Reef with Down Under Cruise & Dive, which was a fantastic day - special mention to Elvis who was such good fun and so entertaining. The other tours were great but long days looking at scenery. If I did these tours again I would probably do the reef tour in the middle or last as this was such a highlight. In all we had a fantastic trip - thankyou Travstar !!
Saturday, December 03, 2011
I had the best time! Very well organized and friendly staff.
Friday, December 02, 2011
Value for money and I had the time of my life !!

Sunday, August 21, 2011
Great staff go above and beyond.
Monday, January 24, 2011
We were visiting from Israel and found everything just perfect during our 3 days of tours. Before coming to Cairns we were concerned about Queensland floods. We spoke with Travstar and were assured that everything was O.K. which it was. We were picked up on time and all tours gave more than promised. All the guides were friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to my friends or anyone interested in touring the Cairns Area.
Monday, January 17, 2011
These three tours were fantastic! The weather smiled on us and we were able to see as much of the reef as snorkellers as a scuba diver could. The trip up to Kuranda and back was great and we my daughter loved the shops. On the Cape Trib tour we saw very impressive rainforest, on the Daintree cruise both 1-yr old and mature crocodiles and a rare black heron, and a special highlight which we did not expect was the marvellous habitat at Pt Douglas. We had a great holiday (I also rented a car and explored the Tablelands later in the week.The 3 Millaa Millaa falls were fantastic!
Wednesday, January 12, 2011
Thanks for three fantastic days of fun! All staff were extremely friendly and helpful. A huge thank you to Elvis and all the amazing staff on the Reef trip - you guys are just gorgeous!!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010
excellent service. worth for money
Wednesday, September 22, 2010
I booked the 3 day tour package for my son & I before we left Sydney and it was a great way to see the best of Cairns in a few days. I was very happy with the service we received each day, the transfer bus was always on time and the drivers were wonderful. They had a great knowledge of the local area which made the travelling informative and fun. I would recommend this trip to any tourist visiting Cairns with limited time.
Friday, February 19, 2010
Reef tour is the best.
Thursday, February 11, 2010
This tour was very professionally organized, but still had a very friendly local feel to it.
Saturday, February 06, 2010
This tour package met our travel needs and we would recommend your company to others visiting the Cairns area.
Friday, January 29, 2010

Thursday, November 12, 2009
worth it and well organised
Wednesday, October 14, 2009
The 3 day trip was excellent value for money & the staff very friendly & helpful. I will be back next year & would be interested in any other tour options that you may have to offer.
Friday, October 02, 2009
This grouping was great to cover a diverse area in a short time. We were pleasantly tired but got to see so much. It was a great time with nice small grouping of people.
Saturday, September 19, 2009
Everything went smoothly for us, well done!
Thursday, September 17, 2009
Reef - Perfect Day, added bonus for us was a \\\"very reduced rate\\\" helecopter flight back to the mainland at end of day. Just perfect.
Kuranda - Great Day, cant fault it.
Cape Tribulation - Very long Day but exciting. Roller Coast ride ride (in 4 x 4 bus) was unexpected, literally kept us on the edge of our seats. Great Lunch, Very full, pleasurable day.
Wednesday, May 06, 2009
Very pleased with the whole package as we were limited with our time in Cairns but definitely looking to go back again. Thank you Travstar.
Saturday, April 25, 2009
All 3 trips went like clockwork & were greatly enjoyed by all members of our pary ranging in ages from 82 - 14 years. The care of the dive masters on the reef trip for the novice divers was outstanding. Well done Dive Down Under.
Friday, March 13, 2009
Thank you for making our trip special.
Saturday, February 14, 2009
I found the reef experience especially nice-the boat \\\"Osprey V\\\" had the friendliest and most helpful staff. They made even the novice snorkeller have a great viewing of the reef. The entertainment on the boat on the way back to port was great (since the weather got inclement and it limited our viewing outside).
Thursday, December 11, 2008
Barrier Reef tour on Osprey V and trip to Cape Trib where fantastic. Entertainment on the Osprey rounded of a fantastic day in the perfect way. Excellent tour guide on cape trib trip, very knowledgable and should be paid a lot of money for what he does! Kuranda trip was horrible, train ride and cable car where good, but almost impossible to kill 5 hours in the glorified market that is Kuranda, ended up coming down on an earlier cable car and begging the bus driver to take us back to Cairns early.
Friday, October 31, 2008
The Cape Trib trip was very good,especially the lunch which was superb and exceeded expectations. There were only a couple of tiny alligators spotted on the cruise but thats nature I guess. I was a little disappointed with the snorkelling as although I am a strong swimmer it the first point we stopped at it was too rough to concentrate on anything but keeping above water,the second was better but not at all the sedate swim I expected. The bbq was excellent but my husband was too sick to eat it. The Kuranda trip was very nice,an enjoyable day out.
Wednesday, October 22, 2008
These day trips were well organised and went off without any problems. The reef trip was a highlight and the staff were very helpful.
Monday, October 06, 2008
All the day trips were very well organised and the tour guides were very good at their job.
Tuesday, September 23, 2008
My parents enjoyed every aspect of their 3 day tour and have asked me to thank all the staff for their hospitality and friendly manner and I would be more than happy to recommend to future visitors.
Wednesday, June 25, 2008
3 day trip was not only enjoyable but the people we had contact with were all friendly, encouraging and humorous.
Sunday, May 18, 2008
Thank you for advising me good package. It was a good choice and we appreciate your service .Daintree (Cape trib) tour was well organised. One comment to make for improvement is that the coach had a quite unpleasant smell.
Wednesday, April 23, 2008
I am so glad I found this trip on the internet! We feel we definitely got a good deal. Every stop was beautiful and the service was excellent!
Sunday, April 06, 2008
Reef tour great. Osprey V crew were professional. Other tours went as planned with no issues. Lunch on cape trib tour was excellent
Sunday, March 16, 2008
Stephanie who made the bookings for us was very nice and effective and when we wanted to add two certified dives on the reef tour she managed to arrange so that we got a refund instead of paying extra, quite impressive :) The reef day was the best, the Cape Trib was also great. On the Kuranda trip the train part and the skyrail part was terrific, but the stop in Kuranda was a bit too long. It would have been great if the Kuranda stop was perhaps an hour and a stop at the water ski park at the foot of the sky rail was included instead. Overall it was three great days! Moa & Molly
