So glad we did this excursion!
, Oct 2019
This is a beautiful rainforest. Full of many stories and wonderfull driver. Has great knowledge and a warming sense of humor! Showed us the vast history of this place and let us stop to take pics at some cool little spots!! The van is extremely comfortable and he keeps it just how you like it in there (temp wise). Come hungry! Coffee and tea in the morning. We didn't have to wait for lunch to be prepared as we picked it out in advance and they had it ready for us. Don't skip this one. Just go, even for the ice cream in the evening! You'll be so thankful!
Great trip

Our guide Steve gave us all information during the trip. Beautiful views you can only imagine; travelling on Daintree river with crocodiles, visiting the rainforest -- all we wanted to see. And, of course, lunch with lection about tropical fruit.

Our tour guide/ bus driver Simon was very knowledgeable regarding the area, including wonderful information on the flora and fauna and passionate about preserving the World Heritage Sites for future generations. Enjoyed his tour and the beautiful destinations very much. Lunch was fantastic. Would highly recommend.

We had the best time from the moment your Excellent Driver and Tour Guide Carsten collected us from our accommodation. (which was a little out of the way). The commentary was very informative and very entertaining with lots of laughs along the way.The morning tea and lunch provided was awesome. It was a long day, but well worth doing and our safety at all times was always paramount with Carsten.
Long day but a great one

You spend a lot of time driving, but the sights are worth it. Mossman Gorge is beautiful. The rainforest is gorgeous. Cape Trib is probably skippable if you don't desperately want to visit it, because the queue for the car ferry takes ages (however, on the way up this is negated as you take the boat cruise to the other side of the river! Clever!) Bus was comfortable, guide was knowledgeable and entertaining, all included food was great. I'd advise taking one of the shorter tours that stays a little closer to Cairns, but I still had a fab time. Thanks!
Great day

We had a great day touring through the Daintree and rest of tour. Great information from our tour guide Mick, at the rainforest and also Dave who took us for a river cruise on the Daintree river, where we saw crocs sunning themselves on the river bank. Had a great lunch sampling local produce with very informative explanation of all the tropical fruits on our plates. Would recommend this tour as they looked after us very well. Well organised, professional service and Mick kept us on track with timings, without being rushed.
Great way to see the Daintree!

We spent two days in Cairns and did the Great Barrier Reef the first day and this tour the second. Our guide - Steve - was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and made sure we had a good time. It was a great way to see north of Cairns with a number of sites and some good stops along the way. My favorites were Cape Tribulation and the crocodile boat tour. The main complaint from other reviews is that it is a really long day. That’s true - we left at 7 am and returned around 7 pm - with a bunch of driving. However, the itinerary makes clear it is around 12 hours when you book and you see a ton of good stuff so I’m not sure why others are surprised. If you’ve got two days in Cairns and are looking for something other than the Reef to do, this is a great option.

All day trip, with a lot of driving. Drop the Port Douglas drive through and give back 1 hour to the guest. Overall the guide was informative but tended to bash other countries. There are probably better tours out there.

Everything about this day trip was well organised and enjoyable. Great value and our guide really looked after us well. Amazing how much we fitted into this day yet it didn't seem rushed. We saw scar face the daddy of crocks and also two of the large male birds that care for their young.The coach was very comfortable and it was a small group tour so we all chatted and enjoyed each others company. I would recommend this tour of Mossman gorge, The daintree and Cape Tribulation to everyone travelling to Port Douglas.
