Our driver was good, and added to the experience with this commentary. Our visit to Kuranda started with a disappointment, that the train was not running that day and we'd have to use SkyRail in both directions. Don't know if we missed much or not. The SkyRail was fun, and be sure to take a look around at the stops... More

An amazing day with a fantastic tour guide, Bruce, who had a real knowledge of the local wildlife and a big passion for its preservation. Not what I had expected but I was glad to have done the trip as it helped expand my knowledge and appreciation of such a beautiful area and why it is a world heritage protected... More

We took a full day excursion which took in Daintree river trip, Daintree rainforest with BBQ lunch, Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge. The variety and beauty of the scenery made for many many photographs (as we discovered when we got back!), and special thanks to Greg our driver/guide who made the day with his interesting, informative commentary and humour.

This day excursion (Mossman Gorge, Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation, Daintree river cruise) made for a very long day with lots of driving. We did get to see quite a bit, but I felt like the majority of it was through the bus window while driving. Mossman Gorge and the rainforest is beautiful, but I wanted more out of the trip.... More

HI Alison Thanks so much for your review. I am sorry that you felt the day had to much driving involved. Cape Tribulation is a 295 klm round trip, and as you would have seen first hand, a good proportion of this is via beautiful coastal drives and through and over rainforest clad mountains. These roads are not your standard... More

We took the Down Under Tours Daintree Rainforest walk about tour. Our tour guide Kelvin was knowledgeable and engaging and he made the long bus ride from Cairns to Mossman George interesting and fun. Skip was our local guide on our walk about in the Daintree Rainforest. His informative interpretation of the rainforest, its foods, its medicines and history was... More

We self drove to Skyrail and the bus met us there and took us to the Train Station at Freshwater. The bus driver gives you information about the area and the train line on the way which was quite interesting. The train station is gorgeous. Absolutely loved the train ride up to Kuranda - great views and friendly staff. Then... More

This was a day long small group tour that flew by because of the excitement and the tremendous warmth of our guide Ian. He was much more than good as he was engaged, informed, friendly and incredible from beginning to end! We boarded the tour van at 7 AM for a most complete and wonderful tour of the Daintree Rain...

Great day and everything ran like clockwork in three parts. Part one involves taking the skyrail after a short road journey from Cairns. Even for those with vertigo, it offers a comfortable and fascinating bird's eye view of the rainforest. After a couple of pleasant stops you arrive at Kuranda itself and the highlight of the day for me. Each... More

My partner and I went on “Cape Tribulation & Daintree” tour on 2 January and we were very lucky to get the tour guide named Bruce. He made sure everything went smoothly and everyone was enjoying themselves. He is a fantastic, knowledgable tour guide with a great sense of humour. The tour itself covers a lot of picturesque views and... More

I was fortunate enough to do the Daintree-Mossman Gorge-Cape Tribulation trip yesterday with the tour guide Bruce. What a delightful day. It was very clear that Bruce is passionate, knowledgeable and well acquainted on all the area, its culture and plants and animal life. His constant commentary and insights were exceptional. A great, full day had by all including lunch.... More
