Had a wonderful day. The guys running the zip line were very entertaining and thoughtful. One of our party had MS and they planned her ride accordingly. Probably the most enjoyable of all our excursions.

This was one of the most amazing tours i have had the pleasure to do. I learnt so much at the wildlife habitat and croc cruise. The young zip line instructors were extremely kind and informative. If any tourists are, at any time, in cairns, do it, I'm 60 and it was easy.

We enjoyed the wildlife habitat but could have stayed longer. Loved the ziplining. The staff were helpful and patient. We were not to excited about the river cruise but overall a great day.

Went on this tour during my 3 week stay in Australia. The entire tour from start to finish was better than I could have hoped for. From feeding the kangaroo's to ziplining through the rainforest with the most amazing crew to seeing crocs along the river. Memories to last a lifetime.
