We did not enjoy this tour, it was basically a bus to tjapukai aboriginal cultural park and a ride back to Cairns from the scenic rail. And you didn't have to Que for any tickets. We had no guide other than our bus driver and everyone was left to their own devices! It should be advertised as such, bad communication!

We took a day trip from Cairns to Cape Tribulation, Daintree Rain Forest and Mossman Gorge. Our driver, Joanne, was great. She arrived on time at our apartment in Cairns, and provided a bit of the history of the area as we went along. She even tried to locate a cassowary for us, but no luck. Very nice lunch at... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our whirlwind trip to the Daintree Rain Forest, Mossman Gorge, Cape Tribulation and of course visit to try and see a crocodile which unfortunately we didn't. Driver Daniel was very well informed and kept us thoroughly entertained and on time. Good lunch and great fun. Thank you for a great day.

Would just like to thank Down Under Tours and Guide Russell for a truly memorable day traveling from Palm Cove to the Daintree and Mossman Gorge. Wild crocs and Cassawarri with baby chick's X 4 the highlight. Highly recommended. Will be returning with kids in tow

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.
