First stop was Mossman Gorge where our guide, Mooks, showed us all of the different plants and animals and was very helpful, friendly patient with our questions. A great host! Had a wonderful Baramundi... More

We booked a day trip to the Great Barrier Reef through Viator and the local vendor was Down Under Tours. The ship was clean and in great condition, the staff was friendly, and all of the activities from boarding to diving, dinner, and disembarking returning were efficiently run. No complaints and I would highly recommend this Down Under Tours to... More

This is an excellent tour and a must if you have a day to spare whilst staying in Cairns. Passengers are collected by the super smart air conditioned coach from their hotels and once all on board the trip heads north past a lovely coastline to Port Douglas (where other passengers may be collected) The coach continues North to the...

Very complete day trip! We enjoyed the visit with the guide (Daniel) who was very knowledgeable and willing to make the day great for everyone. Just note that you'll spend most of the day in the bus and that walk/activity during the day is limited.

Great day with a fantastic tour guide- Daniel. He was humorous and full of knowledge! The day started with a nice cruise along the Daintree River. Then we headed into the rainforest and stopped at the beautiful Alexandra lookout. Lunch was a delicious BBQ with a choice of steak (cooked to your liking) or fish and salads. We then walked...
