A great one!
Nov 2019
If you're wondering if you should visit the rainforest - stop. You should! The trip is nicely organized - you'll get to see the most interesting stuff in few hours. And if you'll get Simon as your guide - it's a double win! He's just great. Gives best insider tips, true and honest information about the region and Australia. Unbelivable fauna and flora knowledge and great sense of humour. Thanks!

My daughters and I did the half day 4wd tour of the rainforest and waterfalls. We were picked up at our hotel and spent the next 4.5 hrs viewing waterfalls and beautiful landscapes. Steve our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and very engaging. We really enjoyed the tropical fruit tasting as well. Highly recommend this tour.

Brilliant Tour
Mar 2019 • Couples
Wow I was lucky enough to experience this amazing tour of the world’s oldest heritage rainforest I experienced this lush rainforest with beautiful creeks weaving through the terrain with gorgeous water falls and there was also board walk around one the oldest fig trees in world and to my surprise at the end of the board walk our wonderful tour guide Steve had a picnic basket prepared with tea & coffee and fresh Anzac biscuits it was a wonderful little treat to be able to enjoy a cuppa with this amazing fig tree in the rainforest, but with this tour you will also see Kuranda “before the tourists arrive” the far north farming region and our amazing outback. What made this tour so special and different from other tours was the simple fact they cater for small private groups and our tour guide Steve was truly amazing with his wealth of knowledge of the region and the forna was exceptional, he went out of his way to accommodate everyone’ s requests of things they wanted to see and do, and this is the only tour that I have been on that you have the flexibility to do that, and we were a group of 4 which was fantastic and when you visit sites there is no one else around because it is a heritage site there are only a couple of passes a year given out to tour companies so it is still in prestine condition, with only your little group.
Overall this tour is a must see not only for tourists but for locals as well I have lived here for over 25 years and I there were so many places that I never knew existed on our tour today so a big thank you to everyone at Discovery Tours for giving taking pride in giving guests such a unique experience.
Thank you

Great Tour with a great Guide!
Aug 2018 • Friends
We very recently did the "Word Heritage Rainforest and Waterfall Tour from Cairns", and certainly the scenery was spectacular..... but the combination of scenary and exceptionality of the guide made a package truly beyond our expectations.

We were met at the Airport by our guide Warren, and he was our host for the rest of the day. It is always a pleasure to meet a professional who knows and loves his job. His excitement was contagious, so that we spent close to 6 hours in a permanent state of learning and admiration of all the beauties of the region

We were a family of 5 and we truly recomend the Tour.... especially if your guide is Warren!

Feb 2018 • Friends
We did the half day tour with wonderful guide Steve. He shared many important details about the rainforest, very knowledgeable and helpful. We stopped just the right amount to help us appreciate this wonderful part of Cairns away from the busy bus tours. After spending most of the day in the Rainforest, we visited Barron Falls. The van and ride was very comfortable ending with tea/coffee and treats beneath a giant strangling fig tree. We had a wonderful day in our group of 6 with Steve.
