This was a wonderful experience from pick up to drop off. Luke was an awesome tour guide, very knowledgeable and funny. From the wild life habitat in Port Douglas, to Mossman Gorge-ous, to the Daintree River alligator tour, it was a perfectly run tour. Would do this again, if Luke is still the tour guide :)!

A wonderful trip to Cape trib, Mossman Gorge and daintree forest. Our guide Luke was friendly, patient and had great insight of the ancient ecosystem. He educated us about the plant diversity, wildlife and we learnt a great deal from him. We travelled through beautiful coastal scenery and were lucky to spot a Cassowary on the road. The crocodile river cruise was exciting as we spotted a crocodile in the wild.The guide on the river cruise briefed us about their habitat and biodiversity surronding the river. On our way back our guide made a stop at the daintree icecream company where we experienced unique flavours we never had before. On the whole we enjoyed this long trip and the credit goes to our guide. Highly recomended tour.

Despite the bad weather, our tour guide was fabulous and kept the whole day upbeat and enjoyable. We saw lots of things we didn’t expect to see in the rain, only one croc but we found one. It poured with rain almost all day, yet still a really great day out and so much to see. The animal sanctuary really needed longer, but everything else gave us lots to do and plenty of time. Reasonable lunch and even with lots of time on the coach our guide kept it interesting with lots of information and things to see.
