TOBY DEAN
TOUR TOWNSVILLE OWNER - MANAGER

Using his passion for the region, his knowledge of the military, and his natural storytelling ability, Toby began to run Military History Tours. The Military History Tours became a big success, with visitors soon asking him what other tours he’d be able to offer.

Four years on, Toby now has a suite of tours to offer visitors to Townsville North Queensland and is regularly asked to run customised tours for corporate events and private parties.

From initial booking after calling Toby from Townsville Scenic & Military Tours on 0408555887 he was very Accommodating easy to discuss tours available! The day went very smoothly picks u up from your accomodation or pick up point! Beautiful lunch at Tumbetin Lodge at the Botanic Gardens! Would suit various fitness levels from the young to aged as we had a couple in their ?80's who managed to complete the short walking distances with ease! For those that had to leave the tour early Toby was happy to drop them off earlier to the Airport and other locations! Overall a very satisfying enjoyable adventurous tour! Well done Toby! We would thoroughly recommend this tour for the unfit and fit!!!
