What people are saying about Port Douglas

Frequent stops meant we weren’t driving for more than ~30 minutes at a time; each stop felt like plenty of time to fully experience the location. The rainforest walk was so much better with a guide compared to simply walking through a forest. Lunch was surprisingly excellent. It was a full day that didn’t feel like any of it was wasted

An amazing tour full of excitement and our tour guide was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about everything and shared so many stories and information that we didn't know. He made sure that everyone was included and took the time to talk to all the participants. We really enjoyed the tour and have some great memories and photos.

We were picked up at the advised time, our guide Tony was very knowledgeable & friendly. Our group of fellow travellers was a pleasure to be with, which would have been attributable to Tony. Our day was as advertised, morning tea & lunch were delicious. We arrived home at advised time. A good day, well worth doing.

Well worth it. This is a fantastic day trip in a nice small group. Our guide Jans was extremely knowledgeable and the whole experience was well organised. You can tick off so many sites in this region in a single day and it doesn’t even feel rushed. 100% recommend.
