The trip was very well organised, we saw a lot in one day without feeling too rushed. The food included was very good. We were picked up in Port Douglas but most of the coach occupants had been picked up at least an hour earlier in Cairns, a very long day for them but just right for us.

No shop stop ! Some nice food and BBQ, proactive guide, fast driving, we even succeeded in avoiding the rain that day, incredible. The stop in Cape Tribulation was maybe too short but we had plenty of time in Mossman Gorge. The coach is so comfy with its lorry chassis and leather seats. The cruise was enjoyable but I was a bit worry with the 'leaking' of the boat : at high speed, water entered the boat on the right hand side and we had no explanation, quite frightening in a crocodile river...
An excellent taster experience of Daintree and the cape! Magical places and a great, knowledgeable driver and tour guide in Daniel. Would definitely recommend to all wanting to explore the area - and then head back to Cape Tribluation to spend the whole day on that beautiful beach.
Excellent day out, great places to visit , good time levels out of the bus. Very good driver cum guide and really comfortable mini coach. Highly recommend this a tour to do if in cairns area.
Driver provided lots of interesting information. Weather didn't cooperate.
Jason was a PHENOMENAL Tour Guide. He really cared about what he was showing us. It was very enjoyable, entertaining, and educational. I highly recommend this tour for anyone staying in Cairns.
You really get a feel for nature at her most awesome. Piggy the guide at the rainforest was one of a kind!
Trip was excellent esp the guide ,very informative.I think his name is Brian. Yes we saw baby crocs not the big fellas.Very enjoyable.Thank you.
The day was very long, but it was an amazing tour of the areas north of Cairns... I would totally recommend this to anyone visiting the area... one day to tour the reef and one day for the rainforests!!!
I highly recommend this tour! We saw everything but never felt rushed and the guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.
Absolutely stunning!! We saw a Cassowary and chick, and a massive Croc amongst the stunning wildlife and rain forest.
Fantastic trip, well organized, smoothly run. Our driver was excellent, safe, cautious, very knowledgeable with good commentary during the entire trip. "Mick", the boat driver on the river trip was a special treat, enthusiastic, with real passion that was contagious.

We had an amazing day! The tour guide was very informative and "eagle eye" Dan on the Daintree River Cruise was a master at spotting Australian wildlife.

Wow! If you wanted everything done for you this is it! The driver was so informative, the 4wd was great. Where we went the location was fantastic, it was timed down to the minute but not rushed and the BBQ lunch, wow the ladies who cooked this were great! Well worth it.

We are so pleased to have at last seen the Daintree. There's no way we could have done this trip under our own steam! Our driver and guide was very friendly, very personable and so full of information to keep us focused all the way there and back. Morning tea, I was pleased to see, wasn't served in a sterile glass & chrome monstrosity. I'm not sure how old the building was, but I thought it had seen a good few years and looked comfortably settled into it's surroundings. That was a tick from me. A welcome surprise for us ladies was the Captain of our Daintree River boat cruise. No fair dink-um Aussie could have done the job better than this tanned Italian hunk with the so cute accent, and we were supposed to be concentrating on crocodiles! I didn't get his name. Also our guide who took us on the canopy walk, crammed as much information as he could into the short time we spent with him. We left knowing he had so much more to tell. The BBQ lunch in the bush setting was delicious, vegetarians catered for. Another tick. We got safely back to our hotel despite a tree nearly falling on our moving bus! Just that last bit of excitement to add to a great day.

Extremely knowledgeable guide, nice small group, this tour was fantastic. It helped that the area was so beautiful, and that there was so much to see. Highly recommended.

A great day, fantastic value for money, and our guide was very helpful, accommodating, and informative.
Lovely friendly tour guide who knew his stuff and was able to give us lots of great snippets of interesting info throughout the day on a very comfortable 4wd bus. Started with a great trip down the river with amazing photo opportunities of the local bird and wild life and a very knowledgeable local guide - managed to see baby crocs and kingfishers as well as learning lots about the mangroves and river history. The rainforest was wonderfully colourful and a great chance to learn more about the history and plant life - the beaches gave us a lucky quick glimpse of a baby shark - although being stinger season we couldn't paddle - and the lunch stop was in a beautiful remote peaceful forest glade with a great bbq ready and waiting. Morning and afternoon tea also provided meant you were never on the bus for too long - although there are a lot of miles covered. The aboriginal guide was really interesting at the heritage centre and it would have been great to have spent more time with him. Maybe the trip tries to do too much in one day and would be better doing more in one area but overall it was a great day and a real taster of what is there to encourage you to come back! An easy trip suitable for all ages and no special equipment other than a camera needed. I didn't get bitten but some people also used mosquito/fly repellent.
