The day was action packed with lots to see and do. The waterfalls were amazing and getting to swim in them was great. It rain for bits of the day but that did not make the experience any worse, if anything it added to the day! Our guide Tom was an absolute rockstar, brilliant guide and great fun to be around who offered great local knowledge, his choice in music for the journey was pretty decent too ha! Overall amazing!! A great day and would recommend definitely!

We visited a lot of nice waterfalls and had a lot of opportunities to swim in nature water which was such a good experience. Our Guide JJ was one of the best guides I’ve had in Straya because he was so sympathetic and highly motivated which gave all of us many laughers and smiles during the day. I also appreciated that he took some pictures of us so we dont has to think about these. Maybe the stops at some waterfalls were a little bit too short but I do know that we had a tough schedule. I really would do the tour again : Thank you ! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It was very nice to see so much of Queensland in one day.

It was very nice to see so much of Queensland in one day. But it was more driving than expected. We didn’t really see any animals besides turtles, but the was a very good spirit and laughter at this trip. Andrew was a nice guide with an awesome sense of humour and had a lot of good stories. It made our day very good The pick Up information was not clear, it said that we didn’t get picked up unless we stayed in cairns, but pick up location was our address in palm cove. We didn’t get information about that and time of pick up, only when we made a call to the informationcenter. It’s pretty expensive to make a call down here, so an email with this information had been super.
