This tour was lots of fun! Pick you up from hotel and drop you off. Zip lining was a blast! Got to see a lot of the rainforest. They provide an excellent lunch. I recommend it.

This was an absolutely incredible way to see the interior of the rain forest. The zipline crew was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining and made the zipline experience a blast. The boat trip down the Daintree river was also informative, and we were able to see a couple of crocodiles. Lunch and snacks were included, as was the transportation. Definitely worth it!!

Totally awesome experience! My husband and are a little older and heavier than the average zipliner, but the team was so helpful and patient with us. Best time of my trip to Australia!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

The jungle surfing (or zip lining) was a bucketlist item, for sure. The group of guys that took us out on our tour did not disappoint. The tour also stopped at the Port Douglas wildlife habitat in the morning and that was so fun to see koalas, kangaroos and more. I recommend this trip completely!

Overall it was a good day. Just very long and lots of travel/waiting around. The driver George was amazing though. He had great knowledge of the area and enjoyed hearing the stories of his people.

Morgan B

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2017

This tour was awesome! If you are staying in Port Douglas, it really cuts down on travel time because the tour starts in Port Douglas if you come up from Cairns, it adds a few extra hours in the bus there and back. We got to hold a koala and feed wallabies and little kangaroos, saw some big crocs and had a blast ziplining! The zip line is such a fun and unique way to see the rainforest and the zip line guides teach you a little about the rainforest with each stop. I would 100 recommend this trip to friends. Our bus driver I think his name was George was fantastic and told us so many interesting facts and aboriginal stories along the way. Do yourself a favor and book this trip!

What a fabulous day!! From the moment we were collected at our hotel to our drop-off, we were so well taken care of! The Wildlife Habitat was such fun - being able to hold a Koala was a dream come true! Zip-lining was exhilarating and the guides were so thoughtful, careful and thorough. Safety first and they certainly held up their end of the bargain! The river-cruise was our last excursion and it was extremely beautiful and educational. This trip is a MUST DO!!
