Thank you... it was my want to share my culture and what I know about this region that helped me to develop my tours. I too think it's a great way to spend a day!

Our guide, Aaron was wonderful. Enjoyed some of the local food and sites. Visited a number of water falls and hiked a number of rain forest paths. The Mossman Gorge well worth the hike.
