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.

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.

Drivers Tom and Andy were fantastic. Good knowledge of area and amazing history knowledge. Liked local short stops, like gelati (ice cream) stop at local fruit farmer. I would go again. Lunches were good,but skip the chips though at Cape Tribulation. Malanda pub staff were great.

Great experience!

Fun guides, a lot of beautiful things to see and do. Would definitely recommended it!
