The Atherton Tablelands (waterfalls) tour with Cairns Adventure group was good and worth it, lots of waterfalls and opportunities to swim in nice places. The Mossman Gorge and Daintree tour (Cape Tribulation) was spectacular. We got to see the rainforest, crocs, thousands of flying foxes and dingos. On top of that, Carlos (our guide) was probably the best guide I've come across so far, who shared with us great stories, knowledge and sense of humour.

Both days were great, though we looked better the waterfalls circuit as it had more stops, it was more dynamic and the guide (Bill) was incredible. I will recommend at least one more swimming spot on the Mossman Gorge you, as it was very hot being the whole day on the bus. Despite that, it was a great value for money as in both tours there are many spots that we wouldn't have seen for our own.

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.
