“Wonderful way to see crocs, beaches, rainforest”

Our small group experienced a full, fun day busing it north to Daintree, Port Douglas, Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge under Wylie, whose wry humor and running commentary kept us smiling. This was trekking, not luxury touring, with a hearty picnic lunch at the beach (mind the huge goanna that hangs around there snatching lunches), a river cruise with an expert guide who can spot baby crocs that hide in muddy water, and a stop for homemade ice cream (overpriced, but delicious) in native fruit flavors. All in all, a great combination for a day in the tropics. Wylie was very mindful of the time so that we could spend more time swmming in and seeing the gorge.

A fantastic day trip which wouldn't have been so entertaining if it wasn't for the tour guide, Wyle.
Getting a tour of land and rainforest from someone who knows a lot about the area made the day.
The tour had a small group of people only 14 of us so it was nice and personnel.
The cost of the tour included morning & Afternoon tea and lunch and all was just right with quality and amount.
The only issue was the other slow drivers on the road " 60 in a 100 zone" so in the afternoon it felt like we where rushing around to meet our schedule so our final stop at the Gorge was a bit rushed.
Included was the Daintree River cruise which was fantastic also.
Overall a great tour and our guide Wyle was the best so I would recommend to all.

We were staying in Cape Tribulation for a few days and needed to get there from Cairns. Really glad we choose to get there this way. On the way out, George was our tour guide, he is great. Knows about everything and funny too! Want on a crocodile cruise on the Daintree River, we saw one! Stopped at some lovely viewpoints too and then did a boardwalk through the rainforest-George told us lots of facts. Came back a few days later with Wiley, such a nice guy. Think my husband was pleased as he had a man to talk to after being with just me for so long!!! Great sense of humour and very nice. Stopped at Mossman Gorge and had a paddle!
Great tour-book it!

A fantastic day trip which wouldn't have been so entertaining if it wasn't for the tour guide, George. George is native aboriginal to the land and had an astounding history of the landscape. Getting a tour of land and rainforest from someone who spent their childhood exploring made it so much more interesting. The jungle cruise is also fantastic, showing us huge crocs - including the infamous scar face! - and learning about the mangrove environment.

Spectacular trip. Thanks George.
I should also add I overslept for the tour and George even woke me up from the hostel! Ace!
