    I organised transfers through By The Sea Port Douglas & was greeted by a lovely gentleman called Ian,we had a Limo all to ourselves on both trips.He was very informative about things to do around Port Douglas & Cairns.It was great to have the car to ourselves & listen to his stories.We will definitely book again.

    I used the government subsidised Sunbus for a couple of days while I was in Cairns, visiting Palm Cove one day - an enjoyable journey - as well as a major shopping centre at Smithfield and on another day the excellent Cairns Botanical Gardens.

    It was easy to buy a day ticket (cash only) on board the bus.

    Drivers were friendly despite the large number of tourists with which they deal, some of whom needed help to know where to alight.

    Buses are airconditioned, low floor and have sufficient space for backpacks and suitcases.

    Took the bus from Cairns to Normanton as part of the Savannahlander train trip. I did expect the bus/coach to have toilet facilities.

    This trip takes 10 hours. Yes, there are toilet stops along the way, but they are not the best, or cleanest facilities one could hope for.

    And what is it with the seatbelts on the bus? They are so tight on one's shoulder; no "give" in them at all. Whoever tensioned these seatbelts has never had to sit strapped in the seat for ten hours.

    It is a long and exhausting ride and not one I would do again.

    There is an airport at Normanton, I'd take a flight from Cairns; if there's a next time.

    We are happy to recommend Cairns Airport Shuttle. We booked easily online and received an email confirmation.
    We were picked up at the airport and dropped off at our accommodation in Port Douglas. The return transfer was confirmed and communicated to us and we were picked up with plenty of time to catch our flight home.
    The whole process was seamless. Exactly what you need on a holiday.

    The driver was Ian and he was really patient, friendly and helpfful.
    Having a diisability I have to rely on the airline to give me a wheelchair. Unfortunately when we arrived in Cairns I was off loaded as far as the departure gate and then had to sit there for nearly an hour while the ground staff waited for their 'paper work. Consequently I held Ian up but Ian was relaxed and friendly when I finaly turned up.
    Then on my way back I was trying to juggle my walker and suitcse into departures when Ian insisted on helping me in. Thanks Ian..
