I really enjoyed the Daintree Walkabout tour I took with this company. Tour guides for the drive, rainforest walk and river cruise were very enthusiastic and well informed. Every part of the day was well organised. The group had a great time and enjoyed each others company, which happens when people are relaxed and in good hands. Highly recommended.

We had a great day made extra special by Kelvin our driver/guide he made the trip so interesting with his passion for wildlife. It was a memorable experience learning about Aboriginal culture and the boat trip on the Daintree river enabled us to see lots of birds and a female crocodile. This trip is a full day complimented with nice food very good value for money!

This was a very relaxed and informative day in perfect weather. Brian, our tour guide and bus driver was friendly, very courteous and very knowledgeably about Cairns, Port Douglas and Daintree. A delightfully informal and enjoyable day.

I really enjoyed my day trip to the Daintree. The guide, Kelvin, was very knowledgeable and relaxed. He shared many snippets of information with us on the long drive - lots of great details. I especially enjoyed the Barramundi lunch at the beautiful spa, and the Aboriginal guide at the gorge, who was also a real people person and educator. Great job!

We had a wonderful family day. Our driver was great fun and informative. The walkabout tour through the Daintree was tremendous - so much to see and learn. Lunch was fabulous and the boat cruise was great - we saw lots of crocodiles including \\\"scarface\\\". The whole day was a memorable experience. Our friends decided to go two days later and had a great time as well.

The guided walk through the rainforest with Robert was excellent and very interesting. Mick on the Daintree river boat was also an extremely knowledgable guide and most interesting. We did this tour on our first day in Cairns and it provided a really good \\\"orientation\\\" for the rest of our week.
