The Cape Tribulation tour is very well designed and organized. The guide had a great sense of humor and very knowledgeable in general. One of the best tours that I've taken!

“Cape Tribulation, Daintree Rainforest and Mossman Gorge Indigenous Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

I had a great day out with Ben our driver. Ben was extremely knowledgeable about everything, particularly the Cassowary bird. Ben was very funny too. The trip was long, starting at 8am and finishing around 7pm, but definitely worth it. The day was packed in with a cruise to see crocodiles, a tour through the Daintree Rainforest, a stop at the beach at cape Tribulation, which was possibly the most pristine beach I have been to. on the way back we had a quick tour of Port Douglas and headed back to Cairns. It was a big day but great, I would recommend this to anyone with limited time in the area.

“Excellent -Friendly day trip to Cape Tribulation, Mossman, & Daintrees”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

I took the day trip to Cape Tribulation, Daintree River, & Mossman Gorge with Active Tropical Explorer. ( you really need to have a comments setup under this name as i had a hard job finding you). Our bus driver and guide Lisa and under training Ben were excellent, informative and friendly. Made for a happy enjoyable day. Cape Trib was beautiful, the lunch at PK's village was lovely and good value. The river cruise to check out the crocs was great, very scenic and interesting guide on the boat. We did see scarface and another smaller croc. The Daintree Tea we were given before boarding was yummy, bought 3 pkts to bring home. Mossman Gorge was special, we were given a lesson on aboriginal culture, then a trip taken into the scenic gorge. On the way back we had a couple of photo stops, where i got some great cloud pictures. Great day, good value for money. Would highly recommend this company. Thank you from Kate ( Since writing this review on Foaming Fury, this page for reviews has become live, so as not to confuse anyone, I will repost photos soon)
