    Fantastic tour! Simply beautiful!

    The trip was really good, but the time at Cape Tribulation was a bit of a let down, just walked on the beach for a while and off again. The rainforest is wonderful and the lunch was brilliant !! Would recommend the trip.

    Gorgeous vantage points and coastline! Our guide, Allison, was phenomenal. She shared so much information about Cairns, the coast, Daintree and Cape Trib. The lunch was phenomenal, the scenery spectacular and each stop offered a different perspective of the area.

    Downunder tours was amazing. The driver/host kept the trip interesting and was awesome. A big asset to the tour operators. Thank you for a great day out. Worth every cent and very professional.

    Great tour. Totally recommended but note it will be a long day if you are staying in Cairns CBD.
    Brand new bus and very clean, about 25 pax max. Very nice views and pictures opportunities. We didn't see any crocodiles.

    I couldn and #39;t go due to illness and lost my money.

    The trip was very well organised, we saw a lot in one day without feeling too rushed. The food included was very good. We were picked up in Port Douglas but most of the coach occupants had been picked up at least an hour earlier in Cairns, a very long day for them but just right for us.

    Lovely friendly tour guide who knew his stuff and was able to give us lots of great snippets of interesting info throughout the day on a very comfortable 4wd bus. Started with a great trip down the river with amazing photo opportunities of the local bird and wild life and a very knowledgeable local guide - managed to see baby crocs and kingfishers as well as learning lots about the mangroves and river history. The rainforest was wonderfully colourful and a great chance to learn more about the history and plant life - the beaches gave us a lucky quick glimpse of a baby shark - although being stinger season we couldn't paddle - and the lunch stop was in a beautiful remote peaceful forest glade with a great bbq ready and waiting. Morning and afternoon tea also provided meant you were never on the bus for too long - although there are a lot of miles covered. The aboriginal guide was really interesting at the heritage centre and it would have been great to have spent more time with him. Maybe the trip tries to do too much in one day and would be better doing more in one area but overall it was a great day and a real taster of what is there to encourage you to come back! An easy trip suitable for all ages and no special equipment other than a camera needed. I didn't get bitten but some people also used mosquito/fly repellent.

    No shop stop ! Some nice food and BBQ, proactive guide, fast driving, we even succeeded in avoiding the rain that day, incredible. The stop in Cape Tribulation was maybe too short but we had plenty of time in Mossman Gorge. The coach is so comfy with its lorry chassis and leather seats. The cruise was enjoyable but I was a bit worry with the 'leaking' of the boat : at high speed, water entered the boat on the right hand side and we had no explanation, quite frightening in a crocodile river...

    Fun experience, passionate tour guide. Wish there was more time to spend at Cape Tribulation.
