It is really difficult to find a decent trip but this one was truly a great experience! Very knowledgeable and friendly guide Sebastian will make sure you really make the most of this trip. He really made it special. We stopped at all the good palces and had enough time to explore and enjoy the nature. The lunch wasn't so great but I guess it's difficult to find something decent in rural area and I guess they just want you to have that experience in this very outback Pub, situated in 100 years old, timber building. So over all I will definitely recommend buying this trip.

Wonderful tour over 2 days. Very knowledgeable guides. Beautiful way to see the beauty of the Daintree, waterfalls, tablelands and also learn more about the indigenous rituals, back stories of places visited etc.

Driver/guide very well informed- good communicator/sense of humour. Trip ran to time as planned

Just do it, you won’t be disappointed. Seriously best day trip ever

Great day even though the sun didn’t shine we still had a ball.
