MichelleLixue_M

The entire tour was over 12 hours but there is a lot of driving and not as much sight-seeing. I don't think we were at each activity for more than an hour so it felt quite rushed. The river cruise was a highlight, we spotted a number of wild adult and baby crocodiles. Would've preferred to spend more time in the Daintree rainforest and do a walk of some sort. Our tour guide Mark was great, very knowledgeable.

Thanks for your feedback, good to hear you enjoyed your tour with Mark, especially spotting crocodiles on the Daintree River.

Well where do I start, first, our tour guide was fantastic 👏 Nancy, Nancy kept us entertained for the whole trip, Nancy is like an encyclopaedia, or maybe I should say Wikipedia, Nancy could talk under water with a mouth full of marbles hahaha, so a huge thank you to Nancy. Now for the Bus 🚌 it was terrible, it was too small and it was so noisy, for a trip when you have to spend 5 hours in the bus, it is about time that the company upgraded their buses.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Good to hear how much you enjoyed your day with Nancy and appreciated her vast wealth of knowledge. Apologies you found the bus uncomfortable, we are in the process of upgrading our fleet but unfortunately there is a massive wait for new vehicles as a result of Covid. We hope you enjoy the rest of your time in the region, thanks for traveling with us :-)

Raintree instagram tour
Sanju_M

The tour guide was very good and knowledgable. But this tour is mostly sitting on a bus. You do not get to see the forest for any length of time. It is more an Instagram tour. Stop take a selfie back on the bus for nest short stop. And it's a long day from Cairns.

Thank you for your feedback, this is a full day tour to fit in all the sites people want to see but we're sorry you felt the time in the rainforest was a little short.

A shout out to Roger, our driver and guide, he was amazing at explaining and informing us through the whole trip. The welcome ceremony by the Kuku Yalanji descendent is a must. The Mossman Gorge was breath taking and the river cruise into the Daintree forest absolutely spectacular. We got to see a lovely crocodile and even a cassowary. So happy we took this tour. A very long day but so well worth it, thank you.
