We will return
Sadly our tour was cancelled due to an accident and the road was then closed, our coach captain kept us informed as soon as possible. As we were flying home the next day a refund was promptly given without hesitation and because of that we will return and travel with same company any where else we holiday at a later date. Our daughter did this same trip a few years ago

A great, great tour of a wondeful part of the world.
This was a great tour. Our driver/guide (Greg) was absolutely outstanding. He was very business like and took great care of us. He was very understanding and went out of his way to ensure my wife (who is recovering from brain cancer)was properly cared for and accommodated. A great, great tour of a wondeful part of the world. The bar b q was also great and the food was cooked to perfection.

worth every dollar
Was a fabulous day and worth every dollar. Could not fault anything and we certainly had the best tour guide in Ben.

saw one baby croc
The Cape is a long drive for what it is, a beach.
The Daintree was good, saw one baby croc, not a good time of the year for croc sightings.

A nice day out
A nice day out however a suggestion to make it better for younger people. There were 3 couples on this tour under 45 who were not as interested in the excessive plant talk and would have liked less of this and possibly rock pool swimming. The bus driver/guide was good but too much emphasis on plant talk. The guide at the cafe could have halved his speech. Two busses leave a day. Maybe one for plant people and one for persons more interested in the overall rainforrest experience.

George was an excellent guide. Highly recommended.
