Found this trip disappointing, not enough time to explore very rushed with long drives, didn’t feel I had see Cape Tribulation and the river cruise wasn’t much better, the guide didn’t seem to be able to steer the boat very well and his speech was mumbled so I couldn’t understand him, also amazed no one got hurt as he steered into trees and bushes
We were picked up in front of our Airbnb, no problems. Driver/tour guide was terrific. Very knowledgeable. Not even 20 people in the van. Very nice and intimate. Everyone was very friendly. Tour guide explained different nuts, fruits, and trees in the rainforest. He was excellent at history. He talked quite a bit about the different types of birds and animals in the rainforest. Very educational? Thank you so much, it was wonderful.
The tour was well designed and superbly guided. Gavin, the tour guide, kept us well informed as well as entertained - not an easy thing to do with a diverse group of people. He was not only knowledgeable but also clearly passionate about his subject - the nature of the area and its critters - and that made the whole experience so much more enjoyable. We loved every minute! Thank you, Gavin!
This started out to be a wonderful trip. Our guide, Gavin, was very knowledgeable and chatty and told us all sorts of interesting stories as we headed up the road. The river cruise was great and we saw a huge crocodile, among other interesting things. Unfortunately, due to the recent storms, there was a mudslide on the road ahead to the rainforest so we were unable to proceed. Gavin was really apologetic and took us to the Mossman Gorge, where we had a nice walk and he told us about all the plants we saw. This was not on the schedule, and he didn’t have to do it, but he was trying to make up for the missing part of the trip, even though it was totally due to circumstances beyond his control. We didn’t get lunch, because that was supposed to be in the rainforest, but we did have a lovely platter of exotic fruits. I would highly recommend this trip and Gavin as a guide!
Great tour!! Full day but every was entertaining, educational and beautiful. Really enjoyed our guide as they were knowledgeable and took care of us. It was wonderful being in a small group tour vs the big coach buses. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour.
We enjoyed the short cruise on the Daintree River, finding snakes and seeing crocodiles. We found the rest of the tour for the most part, rushed and uneventful. One could barely appreciate the view as the bus was going fast most of the time. I expected our bus to drive through the Bloomfield river/creek like the other busses but we didn't do that. Lunch and tea break were good.
Early morning pickup, then a long ride to Daintree, stopping for coffee. The boat trip on the river was beautiful and the guides were good. we stopped to feed wallabies before eating steaks and salad prepared by our guides. went to a swimming hole, tasted tropical fruits and had Billy Tea. Then a short ferry ride and bus back to our pickup locations. Called Billy Tea Safaris.
