My partner and I did the one day Daintree and Cape Tribulation tour from Cairns and we thought it was great! My boyfriend didn't realise how much time would be spent in the van, but he doesn't look at maps and that was the only -ve. We loved our guide Mario! He was excellent and so informative, made a yummy... More

Went on the Daintree/cape tribulation bus tour with trek north. Was one of the most amazing places I've seen. The Eco tour guides we had were extremely knowledgable with over 35 years experience with fantastic personalities. We learnt a lot about the Daintree/surrounding areas. Lunch location was majestic and food was Devine! We saw some incredible animals including cassowaries, crocodiles... More

Do not recommend this company at all. Never had such discouraging experience anywhere in the world. Simply put: these people did not come pick us up as they should have, and we ended up missing Daintree Forest tour, which I REALLY wanted to see, as a result. Also, they are not recommended by local tourist information centers. Story goes like... More

Hello, I am sorry to hear about your experience and agree with you, it should have been handled better. The employee involved has been dealt with as we do not accept this kind of thing at Trek North and assure you it is a rarity. Her training included situations like yours and we do have contingency plans for everything. We... More

A wonderful experience to kuranda. The pick-up and drop-off service was very convenient and we had a good time talking to Keith and also other travellers on the bus. The train was such a pretty vintage, we enjoyed the time on the way, impressed by the view all along the road. Strongly recommend the spontaneous tour to rainforestation, also the... More

This was our first trip to the Daintree Rainforest and Mario made it awesome. He is amazingly knowledgeable about the history, geology, botany, and animal life of the region. He guided us perfectly (finding a rare siting of a cassowary) and was quick to anticipate everyone's needs. He cooked us a great lunch. The small size of the group was... More

We missed our pick up time by 20 minutes, rang trek north and the driver immediately turned around and picked us up. We managed to make it to the train right on time all because of their quick and responsive team. Amazing customer service! The view from the train was incredible along with its history. The sky rail was amazing... More
