Tour testimonials.

Hi Cathy,

I want to say thank you so much for everything! It was a beautiful experience! We loved it so much. 

We had a fantastic time due to your guidance and support. Thank you for making it a smooth process for us. My favourites were the river tubing and Josephine Falls!   Everything was close to perfect with the tours and I will be passing on your details to other people who plan to visit Cairns so you can guide them forward.

Hi Cathy, 

Just wanted to send a big thank you for setting us up with the Frankland Islands tour! 

We had a wonderful day and your advice on the weather was spot on. It was really a great tour to do with kids – that was our first time snorkeling as a family and they were so blown away with the fish, clams, turtles etc. 

Really appreciate your help 👏😊

Hi Cathy,

I wanted to let you know our family had a great time yesterday on the Frankland Islands reef adventure! The staff were great, it was very kid friendly (they had so much fun!), the food was great, and it was just the perfect amount of time and activities for us.

Thank you for your help with setting this all up!

We had a great time on the Passions of Paradise reef excursion. The snorkelling was terrific and the weather was perfect so really nice trip. We also had a great time out of Port Douglas on Quicksilver and again weather and snorkelling were great.

I really want to thank you for all the help you and your office staff have provided us in making our experience here at Trinity Beach a memorable time.

Anjte – Anjte was so helpful and approachable before we even booked our AirBnB. Cathy helped us book our hire car and activities. We would have been lost without her, she was amazing, always got back to us immediately and checked in on us to make sure we enjoyed our activities. We can’t wait to return!!! I just wanted to say another thank you to you and your team! For our first family holiday, it was beyond what we could have imagined. You are super approachable and come across very warm and welcoming, all through email!!! We have told all our friends and family about our trip and hope we can send some more of Perth your way!

Passions of Paradise – The day with Passions of Paradise was great – they were very well organised, which I liked. The people were excellent, helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. The lunch was very tasty, along with the coffee and snacks, they even served hors d’oeuvres on the way back! So it was a good day, and now I can say I swam the Great Barrier Reef. I would not hesitate to recommend them.


January 2024

Snorkelling – Thanks for the suggestion Cathy, it was perfect thank you! We had a great day at Franklands, the reef life over there is so much better than Green Island and we all loved the snorkelling tour. The length of the day was perfect and we liked the understated nature of the boat and the really friendly crew.

Reef Trip – Hi Cathy, the reef trip on the Evolution was amazing definitely the highlight of the trip. The accommodation was fantastic and our travels around Cairns were a great experience. We did go up to Mossman Gorge yesterday off your advice and definitely enjoyed it. Thanks for your experience in recommending activities it has been a trip to remember.

Skyrail – Cathy we had a great time on Skyrail and the train and our international visitors enjoyed it immensely. The weather was a cracker for the reef cruise and we all loved it. Silverswift organised it all very well. Thanks again for all your organising. Our accommodation was also superb.


October 2023

Passions of Paradise – Can I just say firstly Cathy, you were so helpful and had so much knowledge on lots of places to visit. I can also highly recommend the Passions of Paradise, and the holiday house was lovely.


September 2023

Reef Trip – We all had a fantastic time thank you. Places of recommendation were spot on especially the Reef Trip. Cathy, you yourself could not have been more helpful and we appreciated that. Mossman Gorge was so cold, however worth the swim! Thanks so much again for your support.


September 2023

Kuranda – Thank you again for all of your help Cathy. The day trip up to Kuranda was very enjoyable and the dive and snorkel trips were amazing, to say the least. Both tour companies did an excellent job.

We would definitely recommend Passions of Paradise as we love to sail. It was quite a comfortable boat compared to other snorkel boats we have been on. The Tusa Dive cruise was also exceptional and I was one of a total of 16 passengers so we had a very pampered trip. Again another huge recommendation from our perspective. And thanks for the Cairns festival information, we plan to spend this evening in Cairns and watch some of the festival before we depart Cairns.

It was a pleasure working with you. We look forward to the next time we can make it to this part of Australia.

Kuranda and Port Douglas – Hi Cathy, thank you for all you did for us regarding our bookings. Everything went well with picks and drop offs. We all enjoyed Kuranda and Port Douglas, gorgeous weather on both days. Our private driver to Port Douglas was very friendly, smooth driver and went out of his way to accommodate what we needed. We will definitely book through Belle Property on any future holidays and tell our family and friends to do the same. Thanking you once again Cathy.


August 2023

Kuranda – Kuranda day out was great and it all worked really well. It was fabulous having ordered your food delivery service and it was all delicious and kept us all going for a few days! Thanks for your help with making our holiday even better


August 2023

Passions of Paradise – Thanks for the great recommendation to go to the outer reef with Passions of Paradise. We had two great dives and the “Passions” crew and size of the boat fitted with our ethos. Thanks again for your assistance we are already planning a return.

Kuranda – We loved all the tours you booked, thanks so much for your help and recommendations. Kuranda was my favourite, it was extra special because my partner proposed on the Skyrail! The kids loved Green Island so all the tours were winners really. I will send your contact details to my friends if they heading over to Cairns!


July 2023

Frankland Islands – Our family loved the Frankland Islands. The overall experience was great, the snorkel safari, the staff, the equipment and the food. Thank you for that special recommendation! Much appreciated!


June 2023

Palm Cove – Wish we had more time to spend in Palm Cove, it is fantastic! Cathy at Belle Escapes was amazing in helping us find things to do in the area, a truly great overall experience.


May 2023

Frankland Islands – A relaxed yet well organised day with friendly and knowledgeable crew. Love that everything is included like the semi sub tour and the beach walk with the marine biologist was the best! Love that there is only the one boat allowed on the island keeping the numbers small and the island not crowded. Would definitely go back again!


May 2023

Evolution Outer Reef – Thanks so much for recommending and arranging this trip for us. We had the best time. It was quite simply the MOST organised trip we have ever been on.

We highly recommend them.

Thank you for your recommendation and assistance.
