Great experience with great driver/guide.
Very, very busy agenda, but a lot of distance covered hence it was a long and tiring day. Only downside was generally feeling rushed at each stop off, not much time to fully take it all in, but this was understandable with the number of places we visited. Great experience with great driver/guide.

What a great day, small group, fun, friendly & very knowledgeable driver/guide/host, great lunch. Overall, a very good day.

Brilliant experience, some more free time at Cape Tribulation would have been good though, it was stunning! You have to remember you are in the middle of the rainforest, be prepared for very basic toilet facilities. On the plus side lunch and the snacks throughout the day were very tasty!

round off a perfect day
My husband Iain and I had an absolute great day out. Adrian our guide was great, his knowledge of the rainforrest and history was excellent. There was so much packed into the day that it just flew in. We were lucky enough to see two small crocs and a tree dragon. Morning tea,and lunch was very nice. and to round off a perfect day the trip in the old army landrover and swim at the waterfall just rounded things off.

Grant was a great tour guide & we really had a very enjoyable day even though it rained quite heavily at times - a real rainforest experience! Good to have a small group of people for the tour. Lovely food provided also.
Posted By Pauline Harrison
what a good time
We could not speak highly enough of the tour, my staff could not stop talking about what a good time they had and the wildlife they had seen. The river crocodile cruise was also fantastic.
The tour guide was both friendly and informative and made sure we all had a great memory to take home!

The quality of the guide sets the tone for the day. We had a great day.
Posted By Tony Taylor
guide was great
The guide was great, she was friendly and very knowledgable... the facilities (ie - transport & lunch ) were fabulous.... I think maybe incorporating a treetop type walk through the rainforest would have been better and perhaps ommit the river/ crocodile tour.... people didnt seem very impressed with the small crocs that were barely visible...

we saw 2 cassowaries
Well organised trip, with a very competent trip leader, great lunch! and we saw 2 cassowaries so a bonus.
Posted By Brett and Stephanie Pilcher
A very knowledgeable and accomodating guide made this one of the highlights of our trip. From the walk through the rainforest to the swim on the beach our guide was always sharing valuable information. Melissa (our guide) was funny, upbeat and knowledgeable. The group size was small, and that made the tour much better; we all had a chance to hear Melissa, and we could have a very interactive learning experience. I had concerns about my ability to keep up with the group (being 7.5 months pregnant) but she was always there to give me a hand (and to let me know where the nearest toilet was!!!) I would HIGHLY recommend this tour. My husband loved it too!
Posted By Michelle Abell
tour was fantastic
Just wanted to send a really quick email to thank you for your help in booking me onto a Daintree Discovery Tour. I went on the tour on Wednesday with Grant as the tour leader. All I can say is - WOW! The tour was fantastic, Grant was informative, funny, helpful and resourceful (it was pouring with rain yet still he provided us with an unforgettable day). I will be recommending the Daintree Discovery tour group to everyone I know that plans to visit the Cairns area- it really is a must do tour.
