My family and I had a great experience on this tour. Even though I contemplated renting a car and driving around, as this tour was pricey (for me), it was well worth it. As you can't beat a local who knows where to go, has stories and insights to tell you and the kids, and has a load of humour and character to boot. And being with like minded people gives it a good social mix too. Our tour guide, Stu was a really interesting and warm character. Full of fun and wit. One of my favourite moments was when he took my 6 year old girl to the front of the minibus, while we were waiting and travelling via the car ferry. It was an enriching experience. The sights themselves are good - we would most likely miss some sights and definitely miss some stories and warnings. The swim in the gorge was short but great too. All up, well worth going on! The family and I had a great time! I ticked a few things off the bucket list. Thank you Stu! Don't let the great white bite!

This was an excellent tour of small group size with our outstandingly knowledgable, personable and attentive tour guide (Stu) making the whole day a memorable and enjoyable day. My 14yo and I fit in well with a group of 24 other people - some families with children, couples and older group members. Would definitely recommend this tour group to anyone looking for a fulfilling experience.

It was a fun and hassle free way to visit these areas. The tour was well organised and our guide Tom was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the day. Highlight was definitely the croc cruise and the dip at Mossman Gorge. Ice cream tasting cup was awesome too. Highly recommended!
