    Steve, our guide, was wonderful! Extremely knowledgeable and good sense of humor, making the trip even more enjoyable.

    Steve fue muy amable con nosotros y un gran guía. La excursión es perfecta para rellenar una mañana o tarde antes o después de volar como fue nuestro caso. Mi pareja y yo después de la excursión nos quedamos con ganas de volver a lo que vimos y pasar el día entero, pero sin la excursión dichos lugares no los conocerías e irías.

    Mick was a great tour guide! Extremely knowledgeable about the area and it's history and so nice and easy to talk to

    Everything. Such a fun afternoon. Mick our guide was awesome. Very informative without going over the top.

  • 03-Sep-2021

    Knowledgeable guide. Educational experience regarding local indigenous culture, flora and fauna as well as development. Prompt, courteous service.

    It was great to go off the beaten track in a small group. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and we learnt so much on the tour. The highlight for me was the waterfall and the 4WD tracks!

  • 17-Feb-2021

    It was great to see the Gorge and National Park only accessible by 4WD. The tour guide / driver was very knowledgeable and keen to interact, a great character. With a short stop for some of the group to swim it made the tour a bit rushed, in retrospect I would have chosen a full day tour (if available)

  • 17-Feb-2021

    Gaining access to some areas of the gorge only possible by 4WD and a knowledgeable tour guide / driver made this half day tour, in retrospect a half day wasn’t enough, it seemed we were always rushed.

    We did this trip on 19th January. The entire "off the main tourist route "experience exceeded our expectations thanks in a big part to our guide Mick from Discovery Tours. Apart from the rainforest and falls themselves a particular highlight was seeing the fantastic Clohesy River Fig Tree. Greg and Jocelyn, Sunshine Coast.

    I took this trip as a last minute booking. I had wanted to visit other places but due to Covid-19 tours are not operating daily and my stay was unable to be extended to be able to take any other tours. Darryl was our guide and he was very informative and personable. Barron Falls was pretty barren as it is not wet season. The Clohesy river fig tree was quite cool to see. I enjoyed the off road part of the trip. Going across creeks in a 4WD was pretty cool. I appreciated that Darryl stopped to let me take pictures in Palm Cove as we dropped off passengers. Overall this trip is probably better taken in the wet season to get the most out of the waterfalls.
