The Cape Tribulation is beautiful and the daintree is just stunning especially when you get to see Crocodiles in their natural habitat. The guide we had Daniel was funny and gave great information about the history around the Daintree, Cape Trib and Port Douglas.

Massimo was an excellent guide - he was very knowledgable and even followed up at one of the stops for more information on a specific type of tree I was interested in.

Seeing 3 lazing crocs was icing on the cake
Mick our guide made the day fun & informative, keeping us all on schedule in a relaxed but effective way. We enjoyed his musical vignettes, his quizzes & his detailed knowledge of the areas we visited. Our river cruise guide amazed us with his knowledge & his pointing out various features made it so much more enjoyable. Seeing 3 lazing crocs was icing on the cake. Lunch was delicious in tranquil & beautiful setting Overall a great day - we were returned to our doorstep tired but happy. Thanks!

tour guide was very informative
A long day but a very worthwhile trip. We loved the rainforest and the Daintree River trip. The tour guide was very informative. Lunch was average and limited food was available for the number of tour buses arriving.

This was a good trip
This was a good trip but probably orientated to a older or non-domestic demographic. As under 35s, we may have been better to a hire car and do the trip at leisure.However, our guide, bus and food were all good and in general we had no complaints.

A very full day
A very full day that was well co-ordinated and run. We joined the tour at Port Douglas and felt it was a very long day so others coming an extra hour each way from Cairns were probably exhausted.

I just wanted to drop a quick line to say thankyou for an amazing day yesterday, (Sunday 16th March)
We did a tour of Mossman Gorge, Daintree River, Cape Trib etc.
I have only just moved up here to Far North QLD and found the tour both informative not boring as some can be full of too many dull facts that one doesn’t remember after the tour!!
But also what stood out in my mind was the quality of the program..impressive is all I can say, I have been on a few tours around the world (not always my fav thing to do, prefer off the beaten track)
but found this one to be fun, educational, with many wow factors thrown in of this beautiful we have on our door step!! Oh and the food was also of a very high quality.
I would like to pass on my thanks to our tour guide (forgive me as I can’t remember his name all I recall is that he originates from Germany) he was funny, informative, helpful and took care of the whole group with ease!!
This tour has renewed my faith in perhaps revisiting the whole tour bus experience that I have been loath to do for many years due to some scary stories!!
Keep up the great work & I will certainly recommend your tour to friends, family, visitors etc.

Well organised and excellent value
We returned from our month long visit to Australia last week and wanted to say how much we enjoyed the two trips we booked with your company. One was the Kuranda trip on the train and skyrail and the other was the Daintree and Mossman gorge trip. Both were well organised and excellent value for money. We were very impressed by Shane our tour guide for the Daintree trip. He had such extensive knowledge of so many subjects (my wife was a geography teacher in the UK and she was particularly impressed) and had us laughing all the way. Thank you so much for making our first visit to your country so memorable.
