The trip was broken up well with a few stops at very special locations. Lunch was an awesome bbq at the insect and butterfly museum,... More

We had a wonderful day with Joe as our tour guide/ bus driver. He gave us lots of information on Daintree Rainforest from the sugar can crops nearby to the animals in the forest. I recommend going on the Daintree and Cape Tribulation tour although if you are taking children/ young teens I don't think this tour is for you.

Our driver Joe was an excellent guide, and helped us through the long bus stints from Cairns, with an amusing running commentary. There were no crocs out to play when we went, however the boat guide kept us afloat with local wildlife info, and it was quite exhilarating watching and waiting. The insects museum was kept alive by the stick... More
