Lisa was a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour leader. She gave us a lot of information, ranging from recent history to geology and evolutionary biology, thus making the tour much more interesting. You can at times feel a bit rushed, but that's because the tour packs a lot varied of activities

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The driver and guide (Lisa) for my tour is most friendly, approachable, knowlegable, and professional. She promptly drove the bus to our hotel for the morning pickup - and she gave excellent commentary during the trip. The activities are very enjoyable and well-organised. This included the wildlife habitat visit (with included morning tea), guided rainforest leisure walk, included lunch at a nice safe water-hole, included local ice-cream eating at an ice-creamery, and hour-long Daintree boat ride - where we actually spotted small crocodiles in their natural habitat in the Daintree river. We were well looked after. And the food/lunch was excellent.

Awesome day out, accompanied by an excellent tour guide. Would recommend the trip as there was many sights to behold, tasty sandwiches and great conversations....not forgetting the ice cream on the way. Be prepared to be exhausted by the end of the trip. Thank you to our guide Lisa!
