Tom our driver was amazing. Intuitive and cheeky. Craig our boat guide gave us great laughs too! So knowledgeable. Highly Recommend swimming in the Daintree! So refreshing and what a soulful experience! Well worth the money too! I crossed so much from my bucket list in one day! My country is beautiful and I hope many people experience the joy I had. A million thanks!

Going to Mossman Gorge, it is so beautiful in there with the water cascading over the rocks!The Daintree River Cruise was excellent as was the Daintree Rainforest. Really good to see Cape Tribulation. I must praise our Guide Roger he gave excellent commentary and was very informative!!

Action packed day, comfortable way to see Cairns' highlights
Jamal_A

This tour was very packed and included many highlights of the beautiful area surrounding Cairns. The downside is you spend a lot of time in transition and are a little rushed between sites. Most time is spent in the car, and only about 10-15 minutes are allowed per location, which is really not enough. This tour could perhaps remove one location so the others can be properly enjoyed. -Mossman Gorge: Beautiful picturesque swimming hole connected to a natural river, but by the time you get in the water you have to get back to the truck -Croc Cruise: You will definitely see some crocs, this was a great touch to the tour -Daintree: You mostly drive through the forest and only do a short 10 minute walk through a footpath -Lunch/Ice Cream: Great lunch with many options, in a cool spot within the forest -Cape Tribulation: This part of the tour isnt really necessary, and a longer time at Mossman Gorge or the Daintree would be a better way to spend it. Very significant historical location, but not much to see there. Tour guide was great, and very entertaining!

Well worth the trip.

We got what we expected. A good tour of the Daintree Rainforest, was a lifetime. experience. We were able to see many areas, and enjoyed the tour. What we noticed was, there were not many old large trees, in the forest. It looked, they were logged, may be 50 to 70 years more back, which was a very stupid thing to do. Daintree should be treated as "Lungs" of the country.

It is a long day but seeing the sights in one hit with a knowledgeable local guide is definitely worth it. Our driver/guide was a highlight of the trip. The sights/locations were great but he made the trip.

Efficient and enjoyable

Roger was an excellent tour guide. He’s very well informed about the area and was enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge. This tour is definitely not for those who want to take their time however. It’s perfect for people who have a limited time in the area and want to see as much as possible! Being picked up and dropped off at our hotel was a huge bonus and the whole day was very low stress as Roger ensured we stayed on time so that we didn’t miss out! Would definitely recommend this trip to people wanting to get out and see as much of the Daintree national park as possible in a limited amount of time.

We had a great time and Roger was a fantastic guide. It is a lot to pack into one day so we couldn’t spend as much time on each place as we would have liked but still a very fun and educational way to spend a day.

Terrible tour- don’t recommend
Olivia_V

Form start to finish- this tour was a mess. The itinerary says you go ti Mossman gore first & for 2 hours, we didn’t- we went last and had 20 mins. It really was a rushed tour and it was obvious our tour person was new and was Guessing her way thought it I really don’t recommend this tour and your better off hiring a car and don’t it yourself vs this.

The whole trip was amazing. Each place we visited had it's own unique and special experience. Our guide. Esther, was the best. All the people were friendly from the welcome to country at Mossman Gorge, the river cruise at the Daintree River, the restaurant staff we met near Cape Tribulation and that amazing Daintree Ice Cream shop.
