What a great day out!
So, we were picked up from our Airbnb in a lovely air-conditioned mini bus, and headed straight up to Mossman Gorge. It was a beautiful day and great to have a dip in the clear fresh water of the Mossman river, so don't forget your towel and swimwear!
Lunch was really good. The first time I tried kangaroo steak which was throughly enjoyed, and an array of fruits and lessons about their origins.
After lunch we headed to the Daintree River to search for crocs. The heat of the day made sure this was limited, as they all took shelter well under water, but we did spy a baby croc.
Walking the boardwalks through the Daintree National Park showed the knowledge that the guide had, explaining a number of things en route, and was more than accommodating to answer any question you had.
Then we got to Cape Tribulation. Another short stop but a wonder to see where the rainforest meets the ocean.
The final stop was the ice cream place where you could purchase, obviously, ice cream. It was on the way to here we had one of the greatest surprises of the day. The van stopped so we could get a glimpse of a Cassowary in the wild! Unbelievable fortune that I feel privileged to have seen.

Overall, this trip is long and entails a lot of travel, but you are condensing all these three amazing sites into one day. It was a relaxing atmosphere alongside a professional service and I'd highly recommend this trip if you want a taste of these amazing locations through your own eyes.

Really enjoyed this tour!! Got to see plenty of rainforest and the swim at Mossman was very cool. Our tour guide Mickey was excellent! It was great to try the different tropical fruits at lunch and with the ice cream.

Picked up at hotel at correct time by a very knowledgable and informative guide who made our trip to Cape Tribulation a very pleasant day. All that was advertised about the tour was done in a very professional and highly enjoyable manner and I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone who was wanting to see the wonders north of Cairns. A complete surprise was the luncheon at a great location with an introduction to local fruits. In summary real value for money spent.

We had a great experience. The only drawback was it was overcast and limited our crocodile viewing. Our guide was passionate about his topics and very informative. We had a marvelous lunch at the Daintree Tea Room. The food was great and the tropical fruit lecture was fascinating!

It was a long day but well worth it. My tour only had five people so more about each person. Enjoyed the entire day.

This was a fantastic tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and this made the trip very interesting. He also had a wonderful sense of humour. Some folks on the tour were not aware of the length of time the tour was to take and were anxious about getting back - this made the rest of us feel like some things were cut short or rushed through at the end. Otherwise the places we went were amazing and lots of opportunities to look around and take pictures.

This was a ridiculously long tour and we saw so many things throughout the day that I lost count. The Gorge was beautiful and we got to stop for a swim in the clear, cool waters highly recommended on a hot day. Franck our guide/drive was awesome, explaining things along the way and making sure we were all accounted for. Lunch was delicious and the lesson on the exotic fruits was unexpected and really enjoyable especially since we got to taste most of them with the included meal. The tour was small about 13 ppl, and we made a lot of stops for photos and to see sites. There are a lot of twists and turns, so if you get car sick easily, it might be worth taking something since a lot of time is spent in the small van.

Very good tour covering most of all that is worth seeing north of Cairns. Lunch was great, and Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation well worth seeing. A good day where you don't have to drive the long windy roads yourself!

It is definitely a lot of driving, but it's a great way to see lots of things in one day and get context on the areas north of Cairns. Mickey was friendly and made sure to make stops often for us to see great views and use the bathroom!
We got to see 2 baby crocs but unfortunately it wasn't the right time of year for the big ones.
The ice cream shop had very different and delicious flavors!

It was a great day filling trip. We drove on one of the scenic highways of Australia and the view was amazing. The places where we stopped were also very nice, usually with great views. I also loved the location where we had lunch in the middle of the rainforest. It was also very nice that the chef explained us everything about the food while we were eating and the food was good too. Definately worth going on this tour if you want to see a lot of the beautiful scenary and the rainforests.

The Daintree Rainforest is an amazing tour. From the rainforest to the cruise down the river, you're in for a treat. Our tour guide was nice, knowledgable, and even able to answer the myriad of questions he was hit with. All of the views he showed us were spectacular.

The only thing we weren't fans of on this tour was all the time spent on the bus. We were lucky enough to have a good group with us, but it becomes a bit boring toward the end. But what can you do?

If you're heading up north to see The Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest is a good tour to consider. It's worth an additional day there.

I really liked this tour! I was picked up quite late, but the company ensured me it was merely a delay and nobody forgot me. Had a nice road trip along Port Douglas nice view!, to Mossman. Our guide always asked us what we preferred if we had a choice, allowing us to spend a little more time at the places we really liked. The Mossman gorge was not that special, but I liked the walk to get there, through the rainforest. The lunch at the Daintree Tea House was really nice, and the owner explained in detail a lot about all the different kinds of fruit on our plate. During the boat trip on the river, we saw two crocodiles, of which one was enormous. Very nice to see from up close.
The walk to Cape Tribulation was nice too, seeing plenty of animals including a python eating a bush turkey. I wished to have spent more time on beautiful Cape Tribulation beach, but unfortunately we had to head back already after some 10 minutes. I would have loved to have a little bit more time everywhere, but all in all, it was definitely worth it.

A tour which is worth to do thought it is not that much entertaining as half of the time you will spend in the bus. Meanwhile scenery is great and the lunch in wetlands and soaking in the waterfall water are enjoyable. Also you may get quite a lot of information about this part of the world from the guide who is quite informative.

Our tour guide, Terry, made this trip worth its weight in gold! He was aware of every aspect of the surroundings and gave continuous facts and opinions on both the area and conservation. He was the real deal and made my trip even more special!
The scenery was beautiful. Daintree showed lots of beauty, however, I'm sure at other times of the year it looks even more breathtaking. A beautiful little monitor lizard walked by us seeming very unfazed that we were there. But to see it, to me, made my day! Saw a few crocks on the Daintree River which was very cool.
A great way to see the sights! I highly recommend if you do not have a car to get yourself around.

There is a lot of driving in this tour. The guide was a ton of fun but you see Daintree through the drive or through the Mossman Gorge stop. In that respect it is different than your typical tour. If you have never seen a rainforest this is a great way to do it. However, having seen a number Daintree doesn't really stand out to me. The big thing here is the chance to see a cassowary or crocodile in their natural environments. We got extremely luck and saw the former but that is a once a month, or once every few months thing. Height of summer is not the time to go looking for crocodiles. The wildlife cruise turned up one bird and absolutely nothing else.
