A brilliant day. Tour guide Tom was fantastic. Taken to stunning Mossman Gorge where learnt about the traditional land owners. Views in the Gorge amazing. Then off to the river tour which again Graham the boat driver was fantastic. Then off again through the cape seeing stunning places again with Tom spending the time and knowledge of the area. Highly recommend

It's a long day but definitely worth while. Saw some beautiful Rainforest at Mossman and a variety of crocs. Our guide 'Tom' was excellent and we'll informed. Bus #38 could do with some rear suspension work and a muffler clamp......lol

Our guide really made the whole day. His local knowledge of the habitat as well as the other area activities made for a very insightful day. If you are lucky enough to get Terry as your guide you are in for one hell of a day. And don’t chicken out on the swim. It was one if the highlights.

MichelleLixue_M

The entire tour was over 12 hours but there is a lot of driving and not as much sight-seeing. I don't think we were at each activity for more than an hour so it felt quite rushed. The river cruise was a highlight, we spotted a number of wild adult and baby crocodiles. Would've preferred to spend more time in the Daintree rainforest and do a walk of some sort. Our tour guide Mark was great, very knowledgeable.

Well where do I start, first, our tour guide was fantastic 👏 Nancy, Nancy kept us entertained for the whole trip, Nancy is like an encyclopaedia, or maybe I should say Wikipedia, Nancy could talk under water with a mouth full of marbles hahaha, so a huge thank you to Nancy. Now for the Bus 🚌 it was terrible, it was too small and it was so noisy, for a trip when you have to spend 5 hours in the bus, it is about time that the company upgraded their buses.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Good to hear how much you enjoyed your day with Nancy and appreciated her vast wealth of knowledge. Apologies you found the bus uncomfortable, we are in the process of upgrading our fleet but unfortunately there is a massive wait for new vehicles as a result of Covid. We hope you enjoy the rest of your time in the region, thanks for traveling with us :-)
