The driver picked us up an hour after our pick up time. One driver picks up all over town. The wildlife sanctuary was excellent. The walk in the forest was in a native led area, with a short hike along the River. It was a long drive to Cape Tribulation, but lunch was excellent. The beach is great. The river trip was short with 1 sighting of a croc. Long drive back to Cairns.
Von den insgesamt etwa 10 Stunden, die man auf dieser Fahrt unterwegs ist, sind etwa 4-5 Stunden tatsächliches Programm, der Rest ist aufgrund der großen Strecke reine Busfahrerei. Auf dem Hinweg wurde vom Fahrer viel Interessantes erzählt, das ging ganz gut, die Rückfahrt war quälend lang. Vor allem weil die Beinfreiheit im Bus auch relativ klein war.Fazit: kann man machen, man sieht viel Schönes, ist aber kein Muss!
This was one of the trips I was very much looking forward to, but, frankly, it didn't feel nearly as exciting as the description on Viator. The rainforest walk, which I was so looking forward to, was a 1/2hr walk down a boardwalk and a well-traveled short path. Every time anyone got one foot off the path, we were told to get back on the path to avoid liability issues in case someone got hurt. The beach was picturesque, though swimming was out of the question. Perhaps the best part of the trip was the riverboat ride spotting crocs and wild birds. The rest of it was a whole lotta driving. Our driver was knowledgeable and a good guide, but overall, the trip wasn't what I was expecting.
As others have said, all three places were very nice, worth seeing but our big tour bus had every seat taken and we were often given way less time than we would have liked. First stop we were just dropped at the entrance with no guidance about how to plan our very short time. Luckily we went right to the kangaroos or we could have easily missed them all together. A 5 minute bathroom stop had 4 minutes used just getting off the bus. The rainforest was also a quick tour and we left feeling like there was so much more to see but had to rush out to keep on schedule. The rides to all places were excessively long. Our guide shared interesting information on the way there but did not interact with us in any way on the way back. Lunch and beach time were especially rushed. Had hoped to get in the water but never did. Each person was allotted one piece of bread and when a vegetarian family with many children did not like their meal they were reluctant to give them bread. I had kangaroo which was rare I usually love rare meat but it was so tough I couldn't cut it even with the steak knife I had to ask for. Our guide seemed disinterested and didn't even get off the bus when he made the hotel stops, like he really wanted to get home. We always tip very generously on our excursions, but this one was not tip worthy .
Amazing and educational! Andrew was our driver on this day trip and he did a great job. I learned a LOT about these places, learned small details that were fun! I even got a chance to eat a kangaroo steak! I was yummy! The time spent on the beach was short, but relaxing after the long day of adventure!
