    I found it a little confusing after I made the booking as you refer to the two day experience as Atherton Tablelands, Mossman Gorge and Daintree Tour however the tour company referred to the trips as 'Waterfall Wanderers' and 'Cape Tribulation' When I had to register my details with the tour company it would have been more straight forward and easier if the tours were called the same name. I am going to Darwin next month and have looked on line for day trips and your website came up, but I will not use it. I'll book directly with a Darwin tour company.
