    Really Good!

    We just went on the above day trip and found it a really good day as James the tour guide was full of enthusiasm and very organised.

    The only drawback was that it was quite rushed at points I.e when we did the Daintree rainforest walk as this was very rushed and we couldn't hear much of what James was saying at times.

    Would defo recommend this trip though!

    What a fantastic day.

    Our tour guide (James) was extremely informative and humorous. Best guide we've had. From the wildlife park (which was open, clean and all the animals extremely well looked after) to our lovely morning tea, delicious lunch, fantastic walk as well as the boardwalk info tour along Cape Tribulation, to croc spotting on Daintree River.

    Our boat guide (Glen) was great, loves his river, extremely informative showed us snakes, papuan frogmouths (extremely rare), ulysses butterflies and yes crocodiles.

    Long but fabulous day.
