    Our guide had a priceless, wide-ranging knowledge, which he shared with us with a lot of charm and wit. GREAT. Super organized and great truck. The only thing I found a bit unfortunate was the time pressure. Everything was something 'quick, quick, quick'. Especially the meal breaks. This would allow me to book a tour every two days at best. I'm on vacation after all :)

    The tour was very comprehensive and we visited quite a few places. The tour guide, Daniel, was extremely knowledgeable and provided very good commentary in a very interesting way. The only issue was that we spent more time on the bus rather than spending time in each area. If I were to do it again, I would take a tour that would take you to fewer places and you spend more time in those places.

    Our guide for the tour was Daniel. Right from the start we found him funny, welcoming and informative. The short stay at a Mossman was beautiful and we could have stayed longer. The Daintree river cruise was fantastic and we loved that our kids got to see big crocodiles in their natural environment. Cape Tribulation is nothing less that beautiful. A natural part of our country that is just breathtaking. I would recommend doing this tour in a heart beat.
