Daintree plus day tour
Dec. 2021 • Family
The welcome smoke ceremony at Mossman Gorge felt special, and the rest of the day did not disappoint. A refreshing swim at the Gorge was followed by a croc cruise which, despite the lack of croc sightings, was worthwhile! The Daintree ice cream was amazing!! Our guide, Carlos was excellent, and kept us well-informed and entertained. So much fun, even the squeaky bus!

Fun in the Daintree
Dec. 2021 • Family
We enjoyed the smoke ceremony and swimming at mossman; even though we saw no crocs our tour guide Carlos and his tall tales more than made up for it. Lunch was also excellent as were the ice creams!

A perfect day with the most wonderful guide - Jeremy!
Nov. 2021
We had the BEST time on our tour last week! Jeremy, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and had a very obvious and magnetic passion and love for the rainforest and all things nature, biology, anthropology, history and culture. He was the most amazing tour guide and I learnt SO much from him. The trip was amazing, he was a safe safer and shared a lot of entertaining and valuable information on the drive. The lunch was healthy and yummy. I loved all the pitstops and places we went too. Thank you Jeremy for such a wonderful day and also for being a bloody good human. Will never forget our trip to Cape Trib, Mossman Gorge and Daintree with you!!! Highly recommend this tour. This was our first time in the Daintree, so we definitely wanted some guidance/assistance, and i'm SO glad we booked this!!

Highlight of my entire Cairns trip
Out of my week long Cairns trip, this tour was the best. Tom was our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable and kind.

As a solo tourist who can't hire a car this was a great way to explore north Queensland. I learnt so much about indigenous culture, the rainforest and local life. Tom was able to point out all the interesting flora and fauna. Prepare yourself for cold water as Mossman George is freezing but it's worth it to jump in. Time showed me and the girlies how to ride the small water fall in the gorge.

The ice cream was really nice and the restaurant we stopped at provided a good filling meal.

The Daintree tour was nice, we did spot
some baby crocs but if you're on a tight budget and dont go you'd spend the 40 minutes with the tour guide. I went on a few tours with this tour company and all of them were really nice and easy to get along with so you would still have a good time.
