Just some of our happy adventurers
"We went through North Queensland Tours to book a jet ski tour in Airlie beach, they made to so much easier! They have a massive range of adventures to do, it’s exactly what Townsville needs! I highly recommend them!!"
- Ash Blanco
"Alicia was very friendly and informative. We were given the correct information and our day trip to Magnetic Island was amazing. We booked a bus trip with Neil from Magnetic Island Best Bus Tours through Alicia and he was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and made the trip fun. We visited places you would not normally see.
I would highly recommend both Alicia and Neil."
- Helen Moegan
"Alicia is THE BOMB!! We arrived with no plans and ended up having the greatest time exploring and adventuring all over beautiful Magnetic Island. 10/10 would definitely recommend!!"
- Haylea Fitzsimmons
"This was the best travel agency I have ever been to! Alicia was the most friendly and awesome person I've ever met. She was so dedicated that I (as a solo traveller) would have a good time. I was just going to get a zoo ticket and ended up with a full day at Magnetic Island with a koala tour and got to hold a koala, she even drove me to the ferry so I would make it. The best service I ever experienced. If u are going to book with an agency please choose Alicia! She wants the best for you, and not just making money or selling u stuff like other agencies often do (like Peter Pan for example)"
- Felicia Hällgren
"Alicia went above and beyond to help us and not only with booking a tour, Amazing customer service, Thank you for all your help"
- Kylie Fry
"Had the best time on our trip to Townsville. Alicia was extremely helpful to us in organising our trip to magnetic island, booking a tour and snorkel gear for us, AND very affordable!
Highly recommend her!! "
- Stephanie Cooper
"Thank you Alicia, for your great help to find the beautiful Tour for me!!"
- Anika Heinrich
"Thanks so much Alicia for organizing the Ravenswood trip for me and my husband. We had a great day."
- Sue Wilson
"Highly recommended! Fantastic customer service with lots of amazing tours on offer!"
- Rodney Jones
"Alicia boasts intricate knowledge of townsville, its surrounds, and activities, and it really does show! I'm particularly disorganised with planning trips, but when I had a roadtrip scheduled down the east coast, she made it so painless for me to arrange the 'Ocean Rafting' tour in Airlie that I was interested in, which went on to be the most amazing experience. I can recommend to anyone in the Townsville area to come and speak to Alicia, I don't expect that you'll find any other tour guides in Townsville as friendly and helpful as her. Definitely will be returning next time I'm in Townsville.
Thanks Alicia!"
- Rowan O'Hara
"Alicia was just superb. Her knowledge and friendliness was exceptional. She went out of her way to make sure my friends and I had the most amazing day. Highly recommended"
- Danielle Mather
"I was staying at the rambutan hostel which North Queensland tours is located in front of. We could had booked through Rambutan reception but alicia at NQ tours alot more helpful and friendly! She took the time to explore all the different tours and accommodation at airlie beach and booked for us. Nothing was too much hassle even helping us with things that was nothing to do with travel. She really went the extra mile and i would recommend to anyone!"
- Megan O'Donnell
"North Queensland tour is the best image you can have of a strong woman who run things with passion. I asked Alicia to plan my trip to Magnetic Island coz I was too busy working to look after that. She perfectly understood what I was looking for and for once, I could feel that this is an agency who fit with what you want and not a pre-made tour who doesn't match with your expectations. Doesn't matter if you are a traveler, a tourist or a local from Queensland, in each case, she will find something for you !! :)"
- Cléme Cln
"Alicia was Superb, helped me on various occasions when I needed it and was very nice. I couldn't do it without her...I have only good thing to say.
I highly recommended"
- Tal Noy
"I booked a rainforest tour in cairns through Alicia. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience booking a tour. She took her time and we talked about what I was looking for and in the end found an amazing tour for a great price, the whole process was extremely simple thanks to her."
- Iain Cunningham
"Thanks to Alicia we had an amazing trip to the Billabong Sanctuary. And she organized our transport even though the her shop was already closed. Amazing customer service!"
