This is not a review of DDT. I wanted to add to the conversation for other readers information. I read the review "Not the only way to see/get to Cassowary Falls" and went to the Daintree Village information centre to pay the $10 to walk across the farm. I was told although the falls are on crown land the property... More

What an adventure! We were lucky that the two of us were taken by a guide (Steve) whose driving gave never an anxious moment, and whose love and knowledge of the country underpinned an informative and delightful experience. He also provided a very caring and helpful support for one of us who was limited by a heavy cast on an... More

We did the whole day trip and loved it, from the rainforest, Cape Tribulation, the swim in the waterfall pool it was just a great day. Cam was an excellent guide with a wealth of knowledge and experience that enhanced our knowledge of an area we had never visited. The safety of the group was also at the forefront of... More

We were greeted with a big smile and happy welcome as we were picked up from our accommodation, by our tour guide Cam for our full day tour. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about the forest and shared his knowledge, we could ask him anything and he knew the answer! The places he took us to were just beautiful.Guided... More

We had a fantastic time on this day trip into the tropical Daintree rainforest. Guided walk, in Mossman Gorge, on to Cape Tribulation beach and forest. Private picnic lunch - excellent. Swim in a waterfall pool and a drift down the Daintree River looking for crocs. Great Day.

Thank you for the review Tahnee. Fantastic to hear that you really enjoyed your day out with Kim. That is more like the Kim that we know and love. He is like a walking encyclopaedia, and certainly likes to share his knowledge. Just don't ask him about politics Cheers, Grant Knight Daintree Discovery Tours. More

What an amazing country I live in. Daintree Discovery Tours took us on a full days adventure starting in the Mossman Gorge and finishing at Cape Tribulation. We were supplied with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. The standout for me was swimming in the exclusive Cassowary Falls. There is no other tour group that goes there. Glen was our... More

Thank you for the review Emma, This whole area is amazing, but Cassowary Falls, really does top it off. And being the only ones there, makes it all the more special. People have many options these days when visiting a different area. But as you say, learning all about that area with someone who already has that knowledge, makes taking... More

We embarked on a day trip with Glen as our tour guide. A visit to beautiful Mossman Gorge started our day then we took the ferry (along with our van) across the river on our way to Cape Tribulation. Glen was so knowledgeable and passionate about the surrounding area and kept us informed along the way. After a walk at... More

Thanks for the great review Susan. Fantastic to hear that you enjoyed your whole experience out with Glen. We aim to please of course, and it sounds like Glen is delivering. Glad you enjoyed our "special" lunch spot. It is great to have these exclusive areas away from everyone else. Cheers, Grant Knight Daintree Discovery Tours More

I gotta be honest, this tour was just so-so for our group. Now, I'll admit that the day prior we did the Great Barrier Reef, so this trip had a big act to follow. I'll start with the highlights: seeing this ancient rainforest is a must-do. Cassowary Falls was stunning. The river cruise was awesome and educational, and we saw... More
