Amazing day exploring the rainforest!

Me and my friend had the best day on the Cape Tribulation and Daintree tour. Adam was great and so informative and spotted so much wildlife. We saw a crocodile in the river and swam in Mossman Gorge, fed the wallabies and visited some amazing beauty spots. Would recommend to anyone visiting Cairns/Port Douglas!

We did two tours this week and it was absolutly amazing!

First we did the rainforest tour, this was such a fun day. Highlight of that day was the Mila Mila Waterfall, go swim under the waterfall and you are in paradise! The Josephine Waterfall was also fun, you could slide of the rocks. Our tourguide Buzzy was so great and joined us everytime in the water. That is what makes him such a special tourguide compared to our other tourguides in Australia: he loves his job and you can tell he is from this area. We wanted to go to Cape Tribulation and Port Douglas as well, and after this rainforest tour with Buzzy we decided to go for another tour with him! This tour was more educational compared to the rainforest tour. Buzzy loved to answer all our questions and he knows so much about this area and locals! He worked with aboriginal communities here and that is why you definitely should do this tour with Buzzy! The groups were small, so it is easy to interact with everyone in the group. Highlight of this day were the crocodiles, we saw five of them in the Daintree River! Thanks Buzzy, we had a great time!

Fun and educational trip

Our tour guide, Adam, was very personable, likeable, and entertaining; there was no cheesy canned jokes as is often the case with many other tours. He provided lots of helpful information, and was clearly knowledgeable of all aspects of the culture, traditions, flora, fauna, and wildlife of the region. Although a full day trip, it seemed to go by quickly as we had so many unique and captivating experiences. I highly recommend this tour.
