“Best Tour in Australia!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

So much fun and swimming packed into one day! Our guide was amazing, and learned all of our names within the first hour. Loved all of the swimming spots and made friends with everyone one the bus. Was all younger people around my age (early 20s), but I would recommend this tour for anyone. Worth every dollar- this was the cheapest tour I went on in Cairns and by far my favorite! Thank you for an amazing day!!!!

“Great value for money”

Had a fantastic day with our guide Josh, who was a walking, talking fact machine. He made it fun and interesting, whilst having a laugh too. Definitely do this tour it's worth the money!!

“Cannot recommend this highly enough”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

We were in Cairns for four weeks and done all the usual excursions and activities, including this epic day out.

Our guide, Josh, made the trip. He was a walking fact file of the animals, trees, locations and much more. Not only was he very informative, but he was very caring and thoughtful - he even bought us ice when he saw we had a few beers - what a legend.

As previously mentioned, we have done all the tours in Cairns, but this is, without doubt, the best activity around - very reasonably priced, too.

There is simply not a bad word to say about it, even though it was pouring with rain.

Thank you, Josh, for an incredible day.

“Swim in some of the best, most scenic hide-aways of the rain forest”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Take this beat-up old volkswagon-look-alike bus on a tour of some of the coolest swimming spots int he rainforest. We would never have found these on our own, much less had the energy to drive from one to the next for the entire day. But every stop was worth it, whether you choose to swim or take photos or both. Some of the waterfalls are so picturesque people won't believe they are real if you forget the selfie photo. BUT, this bus was full, every seat taken, and fairly uncomfortable. For the over-fifty-soemthings, don't be surprised that this tour is geared toward the twenty-somethings, and the driver (yes, he drove barefoot), while very nice and polite and informative, was more interested in the bikini-clad girls than anything all day! By mid-morning everyone on the bus, regardless of age, was talking to one another, thanks to this driver's interactive Q&A, albeit awkward and embarassing with humor that didn't translate to all the cultures represented. Still, it was a memorable day and one of the highlights of our three-weeks in Australia. A great way to experience the rain forest. I recommend!
