    Our tour guide Lisa was amazing! She knew the local history and was very passionate about Cairns and Cape Tribulation. Her passion and enthusiasm were infectious and really made for a great day even if the weather wasn’t the best. My favorite stop was at the beach for lunch. I would have loved a little more time there just to take in its grandeur. Overall it was a fantastic trip and I would definitely book again.

    Being able to see Cape Tribulation and Daintree Rainforest is something everyone should be able to do, so much history wildlife and stories to tell by these amazing guides and too see for yourself. It is a long day but totally worth it even the next day looking back and seeing that you actually have been there is incredible!

    We really enjoyed this , I never write reviews but feel this trip is worth one . Lisa was a great guide , her tour really makes what would otherwise be a day of nice scenery only . Glen the crocodile guide was also excellent with his delivery . You should be aware that it is a zoo for the first stop , if we had known this we would not have booked this trip , hence only 4 stars , however the laws in Australia seem to justify the existence of the zoo and clearly they do good work and the animals are happy . A bit shady that the tour does not explicitly state this . Fantastic day though.
