Cape Trib connections tours was very good value for money.
Cape Trib connections tours was very good value for money. George our driver guide was very informative and kept the crowd well engaged during the day. The only draw back was we had only 60 mins to have lunch and spend time at the Cap Tribulation beach.

Amazing trip to Cape Tribulation
On behalf of myself and my three travelling companions I would most sincerely like to congratulate and show our appreciation to George our guide and driver on Saturday October 29, 2011 for our amazing trip to Cape Tribulation - it was so informative and he is such a wonderfully genuine person.

The whole day was very interesting
The whole day was very interesting, informative, relaxing and exciting. We packed a lot into one day, the driver/guide was entertaining, helpful and informative. The walks at Mossman Gorge and the rainforest and mangrove track were great, the zoo gave us a chance to see wildlife close up, Cape Tribulation was a pretty and restful lunch spot, and the cruise down the Daintree River was very exciting, seeing a lot of crocodiles in the wild. The snacks and packed lunch were good. Highly recommended, and I want to see more next visit!

stories from the dreamtime
George was an excellent guide/driver. With his vast knowledge of the land and of the flora and fauna, he imparted a wealth of information to the group which he complimented with his stories from the dreamtime
A great personality with a good sense of humour.

Our guide George was very informative and it was indeed a pleasure to have someone so passionate and with so much pride in what he does and where he lives .We all loved his dreamtime stories.

filled with variety and exciting things
The tour guide ( a yound lady from the area) made this trip extra special. It was filled with variety and exciting things to do and see. It had sense of adventure and surprise and this coupled with the exciting driving on the cliff top roads gave a greta sense of being alive. The only suggestion I would make would be to try to give a little more time at one stop for a swim and maybe shorten the time elsewhere. Though waht to leave out or cut down is the problem.

Great Daintree Day Trip
My trip commenced at 7.30 a.m. when I was picked up at my guest house by our guide for the day, Beck. She grew up at Cape Tribulation in the middle of nowhere with no electricity and therefore knew a lot about the area. Together with a group of excited tourists we headed north along the coast to Port Douglas. Picking up some more passengers and passing Port Douglas we finally arrived at Mossman Gorge where a river cuts right through the rainforest. Most people didn't take the opportunity to swim due to the chilly water and the slippery stones.
Afterwards, we continued to the Daintree Mangroves Wildlife Sanctuary. There, we got really close to cassowaries, kangaroos, a wombat, various parrots and possums. Our brilliant timing gave us the opportunity to watch the freshwater crocodile feeding. We also enjoyed morning tea at the sanctuary.
We then crossed the Daintree River on a cable ferry and stopped at the Alexandra Range Lookout which gave us a view of the river and the surroundings.
Then, we walked along a boardwalk through the ancient Daintree Rainforest with its fascinating flora.
At about 1.30 p.m. we had lunch right next to Cape Trib beach.
A quick walk along the beach or even a short swim in the Coral Sea was followed by a stop at the Daintree Ice Cream Company. We could buy a cup of hand made, fresh local fruit ice cream or fresh mango juice which both tasted great!
After this delicious refreshment, we crossed the Daintree River on the ferry again to go on a river cruise. But before, we had some time for afternoon tea. On the boat, we rode along the river banks looking for saltwater crocodiles. In deed, we spotted a few crocodiles lying in the sun and our cruise guide got us really close to them for some good pictures. Furthermore, we saw the beautiful blue-coloured Kingfisher bird.
On our way back we stopped at a lookout just next to the coastal road where we had unfortunately just missed sunset.
Before arriving in Cairns at 7.15 p.m. we took a little detour through the small and pretty tourist town of Port Douglas.

fun and interesting
Fantastic day, the guide Peter was a fountain of information and interesting knowledge, all the stops we did were fun and interesting, they only thing we could complain about was the packed lunch they took for us to Cape Trib, just simple sandwhiches would have been great, and we did get a little eaten alive by midgies while eating there too, but overall was a day we enjoyed immensely!

had a great day
I have seen more waterfalls and rivers than I have seen in my whole life. Tour guid for that day was unbelievably knowlegeable. He was remarkable. We had a great day and have seen and got to know lots and lots of things.
I want to come back again and stay for at least a month to explore as much as possible. I would love to go in to the country side.

passion for the far north
To have a guide with the passion for the far north was a bonus, you should give Coral a big bonus this Christmass.
