The tour was wonderful, especially loved the time and history of the Daintree Forest and how the Cape Tribulation came to be named. And the lunch stop was fun. HOWEVER, I was extremely put off by the driver (Jason, maybe) looking at our hotel locations as he DROVE, so that he could put the return stops in order, I guess.

Our driver for the day was Neil and he was great. Very informative and you could tell he enjoyed his work. Will be recommending this tour to all my family and friends.

Pickup good - bus driver perfect - good explanations. Picked up at 7am and train leaves at 9am. A lot of wasted time Went up to Kuranda via train - this was a good journey. Crammed into seats so my husband and I couldn't sit together. Once people were moved around to other carriages we still couldn't sit together as... More

Hi Mannys Number 1 Thank you for your review. I am sorry you thought it was a lot of wasted time. I note a few time errors though in your review. I see you where staying at the Park Regis. Our pick up time from that property is 0720, not 0700 as you state. We deliver all our passengers to... More

This was a long day, but well-spaced out with regular excursions away from the very comfortable coach. The guides were excellent. Greg, our driver, was informative and entertaining. Mick on the Daintree is a walking encyclopaedia on the river ecosystem and found flora and fauna aplenty to illustrate how the ecosystem works. 'Skip' at the Mossman Gorge centre provided a... More

We went on the Daintree Walkabout tour. This included a walk with a native guide in the rainforest and a river cruise spotting wild life. They were both exceptional. They picked us up at the hotel on-time and drove us to the rainforest. We did the tour learning many interesting things about how the indigenous people survived. We had a... More

I booked the scenic railway - Kuranda wildlife park- Skyrail tour. Firstly the mobile website is rubbish, I couldn't book anything and I had to phone which will have cost a fortune. The views on the railway and Skyrail are nice but really, I feel I would have been better on a Daintree or Cape Tribulation tour for a similar... More

What a great experience, made even better with the expert & humorous commentary from our guide Shane. We thoughly enjoyed the beautiful scenery at all the locations, the rainforest in the rain is definitely something. A professional company with a personal touch. Service... More

I went on the Cape Tribulation, Daintree and Mossman Gorge day tour with Down Under Tours. Things got off to a bit of a rocky start when I was called and asked to change my day because they'd overbooked, after I'd already called to confirm 10 minutes earlier, and then got a call an hour later saying it's all good...
