This trip was fantastic, we did the half day tour. Outside it was hot and steamy but that did not matter in the beautiful cool and comfy four wheel drive. Why take the train with hard seats and no air- con when you can get up close to nature without working up a sweat? The guide had an excellent knowledge... More

From pick-up to return this was a great tour and Daryl a great guide. Visited all the highlights Port Douglas, Mossman Gorge, Daintree River, Cape Tribulation, scenic lookouts, rain forest etc etc. Daryl clearly knows the area well and is enthusiast about explaining the history of the area and all about the plant life, wildlife etc. Morning tea was great...

The pick-up at the hotel was great, the van clean and spacious, and Steve the driver/guide was friendly, well informed, personable and entertaining. Route destinations were well planned with interesting commentary along the way. Morning coffee, lunch in the rainforest and a visit to the unique ice cream maker proved delicious! The river cruise and the cable ferry were very... More

For the price that you pay, it's great that you get 2 tours! We did the two Daintree Tours. The first one we saw mostly cows and birds. The second one was the crocodiles! Very fun and informational as well.

Fantastic tour. Covering off on the highlights of the area; port douglas, palm cove, mossman gorge, daintree river cruise, cape tribulation. John was our guide and was fantastic at keeping the group together to ensure everyone stayed on schedule. We managed to have two cassawary sightings. It is a long day but certainly action packed.

This is a great company that is very well oraganized. We decided to do a full day Daintree excursion with this company because of the smaller group and had an amazing time.

Everything about the trip was amazing. Steve kept us entertained. Food was great. Lovely views. Great car ride. Lovely morning snack and overall an amazing tour. I was uncertain about how the trip would play out and if it was worth going to, but it will forever be something I'll never regret.
