With Matt we had an excellent guide. He showed us beautiful places in the rainforest near Mossman Gorge and was able to explain a lot to us about the forest, plants, different animals... He's an incredibly nice conversationalist. The lunch menu in the Daintree Teahouse was also very well chosen. It was delicious and here too we got a lot of information about the fruits used. The conclusion with the solar-powered boat on the Daintree River with Mark was really great in terms of atmosphere. We spotted crocodiles and also a lovely tree frog. Here, too, we felt really well informed. All in all a really successful day with great impressions, which made us very happy. Special thanks to Matt and Mark. You are such pleasant companions.
