Traveler Tips


While it is a 12 hour day on a bus, there are plenty of stop points to allow for a stretch of the legs and a bathroom break.
Carlos was great!so knowledgable, We had a great time all the time.. Its a long trip I highly recommend not to bring little kids!
It is a 12 hour day from pick-up to drop off but what you experience on this tour will stay with you for a long time.

Good to hear you enjoyed your visit to Mossman Gorge but sorry to hear you were disappointed with the amount of driving, there is quite a lot of distance we have to cover to fit the popular sites in to one day. Thanks for traveling with us, we hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in the region.

Clarry_M, May 2022
Well where do I start, first, our tour guide was fantastic 👏 Nancy, Nancy kept us entertained for the whole trip, Nancy is like an encyclopaedia, or maybe I should say Wikipedia, Nancy could talk under water with a mouth full of marbles hahaha, so a huge thank you to Nancy. Now for the Bus 🚌 it was terrible, it was too small and it was so noisy, for a trip when you have to spend 5 hours in the bus, it is about time that the company upgraded their buses.
Response from Host, May 2022
Good to hear how much you enjoyed your day with Nancy and appreciated her vast wealth of knowledge. Apologies you found the bus uncomfortable, we are in the process of upgrading our fleet but unfortunately there is a massive wait for new vehicles as a result of Covid. We hope you enjoy the rest of your time in the region, thanks for traveling with us :-)
