We booked this tour after being recommended via Melody in Cairns visiter center. The price might seem higher than others but this tour is well worth it, I can safely say this tour was one of the most memorable I've ever done. Steve was a fountain of knowledge but was also able to deliver that info in a way that we all understood easily. He was also excellent at keeping us on track so that we managed to squeeze a lot in and he kept us well informed of where we were going. The lunch we got was fantastic, the fresh salt water Barramundi was devine and the owner of the restaurant provided fruit from around the world with an explanation of where it came from. There was so much in this tour that I couldn't possibly fit it all in here. I would highly recommend book I ng with these guys and if youre lucky you might get Steve.

The tour we did with Steve our guide was incredible. An amazing day out filled with lots of laughs and fun. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable of the area. Taking us to places that we were just in awe of. River cruise was great fun and then CAPE TRIBULATION was so spectacular. This is a must do tour on a visit to cairns. It was certainly a full day and very much worthwhile.

Darryl our guide gave us a great day, he was so informative and knowledgeable as well as great company. We were a group of 6 friends from Townsville visiting our own back yard as such and we learnt and saw so much that we would not have experienced had we done it on our own. A great day.

Generally very well handled form start to finish. Simon in office was a great help and our guide Steve was brill. Very knowledgable and helpful. The trip is as described and well worth the extra money to beat the crowds and cramped busses. Although we were given an itinerary, there were no timings on it and ultimately my fault for not checking but, the fantastic lunch was scheduled for 11:30. Come on, who has lunch at that time. Apart from that it was an awesome day out. Very highly recommend it.

This all day private tour was fantastic. We had traveled 14 hours the day before and hit the ground running with Jean at 9 a.m. from our hotel in Port Douglas. He not only was affable, but very knowledgeable about the wildlife and flora in the area. This tour was a fantastic introduction to the area and Australia! Jean knew how to time everything so we missed the crowds. The 9+ hours flew by because of the beauty, activities and Jean's engaging manner. Highly recommend!

My family and I (two adults, two kids under 10) booked this tour while staying in Port Douglas (but they also pick up from Cairns) and absolutely loved it. Our tour guide Carsten knew the area (including the flora and fauna) incredibly well, and he was personable and funny. In one day (8:30-5:15), we were able to cover a lot of territory that we otherwise would have had to rent a car to see.

We started in Mossman Gorge, and those who wanted to were able to swim in the swimming hole. After lunch, we did a terrific crocodile tour. Then we went into Daintree, which was beautiful. We finished up with ice cream and a lookout.

The fact that it was a small group (11 people total) also made for a much better day. It felt more intimate, and we all got to talk to each other.

The food was excellent, too. Scones and jam in the morning and lunch at a terrific place that served fresh barramundi (and kangaroo!) and the most exotic fruit I’ve ever seen. The second to last stop was at a famous Daintree ice cream store that serves exotic, mostly fruit-based ice creams. It was the perfect family trip—interesting and active but not strenuous. Just what we wanted.

My nine year old son wanted me to add: “totally kid friendly, food is great, great things you get to see you, great crocodile tour, everybody is super friendly, and ice cream is delicious.”

Hi John, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It's always lovely to hear how much you enjoyed our full day Cape Tribulation day tour. I'm glad that Carsten made you feel so welcome and was able to help you to experience this area with plenty of time at each of our attractions. Being a small group tour we do try to take the time to allow flexibility in your day and if that means taking time out to show our clients something we think they will enjoy then we can. Our day is as much about the people and of course the kids! It is about the area we visit and our guides do go above and beyond because they love it as much as you will. I will pass on your fabulous feedback to Carsten. Thank you for traveling with us. Regards Louise

My family of four took a full day private tour to the Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation. The van was modern and comfortable. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel in Cairns.The itinerary was exactly what we wanted. As we could proceed at our own pace, the itinerary was adjusted to accommodate our wishes. There was plenty to see in a full day tour. John, a transplanted South Afrikaner, was our driver-guide. He is excellent. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He really made the trip enjoyable. I highly recommend this option.
