let’s get on the road and go!
Travelling alone through Queensland, I decided to experience Cape York. I was reluctant to risk it alone, so a tag-along tour sounded like a good idea. Dale suggested I could ride-along in their vehicle, which made a lot more sense!
The trip was well organised, the like-minded company was great, and the adventure memorable. Everyone was very well looked after and the facilities certainly adequate. I was sorry to see the trip end!
The ride-along option was perfect for me, to be able to enjoy the scenery, go to beautiful out-of-the-way places and camp without any hassles.
The vehicles were comfortable and obviously suited for the sometimes rough terrain. The tents and bedding were quite luxurious -- much more comfortable than I'd expected, and the trailer was a work of art -- so well thought out and practical.
Dale and Bones were terrific. They were thoughtful, helpful, efficient, and very patient. They managed to appear relaxed while ensuring that the tour ran smoothly. When difficulties arose Dale always had a Plan B (and maybe even C & D) and things got sorted without any fuss.
Dale took us to places I would otherwise have missed seeing, and his love of the Cape was infectious. His stories about camping with family and friends made the whole experience very special.
Dear Cape York Guided Tours
Thank You for giving us lifetime memories of our trip to the Cape York Peninsula. We had an absolutely fabulous experience with both Dale and Max looking after us and treating us with the best that Cape York had to offer.
We wish all of you the very best in your venture.
Fantastic way to see Cape York. Some great company and amazing places to see. A true camp experience without the hassle of setting up camp! Not to mention the delicious food to go with it. Would recommend to anyone looking to enjoy the full CYGT Adventure.

We chose the Ride Along 12 day Cape York Tour as we are inexperienced at 4 wheel driving and the old telegraph track would be beyond us. Dale & Max live and breathe the Cape and shared their knowledge and experiences with us.
The trip was well organised and the camp oven meals were delicious and varied. We would highly recommend this guided tour to anyone who has doubts of conquering the Cape by themselves.

Google Review from Leigh & Wayne, VIC. My husband and I have just returned from an absolutely wonderful 12 days with Cape York Guided tours. We went as ride alongs and could not have envisaged such a great trip. Dale and Bones are fantastic guides and we were also fortunate to have Renae on the trip as well. Food was great, sites visited were great, recommended tours were wonderful and the people in our group were fantastic. Highly recommend this tour. Excellent value for money and the tents were perfect with very comfortable queen beds to sleep.
