The tour took us to Daintree river cruise, rainforest, Cape tribulation, and Mossman gorge. Our tour guide was great, very informative and knowledgeable. The 4WD bus was very bumpy and I did feel a bit sick, but that's expected. Lunch was pretty good, had the option of steak, sausages and fish. Unfortunately Cape Trib was not as beautiful as usual due to the cyclone just passing through. Overall it was a good trip and worth going. Just make sure you bring a lot of repellent!

Just a short review, Mario our driver/guide was a gentleman the whole day, and it's a long one for him and nothing was too much trouble, so keep up the hard work! I think this tour is at the lower end on price so what what's included, hotel pick up and drop off plus BBQ lunch plus the almost 12 hours of tour is great value. Lunch isn't 5 star restaurant quality, (Mario cooks it on the BBQ in front of your nose like one of your friends would) but very relaxing and quite nice and it fills you up in Aussie tradition! Great fresh salads and fruit too! We were lucky enough to see lots of crocs on our river curie including baby ones as well as plenty of other wildlife, the knowledge of Mario is fantastic and also very educational. Rain forest is fantastic, Cape Trib and other lookouts fantastic, couldn't have asked for more on this great value day out! Will recommend this tour to my friends coming up this way in future!

We had fabulous day yesterday. Mario was our driver/tour guide/chef and did an amazing job. Hats off to him for making this such a memorable day. We had a full day planned for us including local Daintree tea stop, a river cruise where we saw two crocs and tawny frog mouthed owls. The walk through the Daintree was excellent and Mario pointed out lots of interesting plants. Lunch was wonderful in an ideal setting --the barramundi is a good choice but our friend said the same about his steak!! All in all , everything about the day was terrific. A great way to sit back , enjoy the scenery with explanations and have a little walking exercise mixed in. So glad Fred at the tour booking outlet suggested we do this day trip.

Trek North was recommended to me and my friends for our trip to cape tribulation, they where very professional from booking online using their site, to been picked up on time and also the guides where very informative through out the day. We learned a lot of information regarding the rainforest. The lunch was great, and even though the weather was a little wet, it made I think a better feel of the rainforests and adventure. Loved it, and highly recommend.

I would highly recomend the Daintree and Cape Tribulation day trip, it was a great day with a lot packed in. Mossman Gorge was a stunning pocket of rainforest, the Daintree River Cruise was worthwhile, the captain informative and eager for all to appreciate the wildlife he is obviously so passionate about. We spotted 4 wild crocs, a nesting heron and her chicks. Lunch was a simple but delicious BBQ, at a beautiful swimming hole in the Daintree. The Daintree walk was a short board walk, and was just a small taste of the magnificent forest. Last stop Cape Tribulation, fulfilled one of those bucket list items, half an hour to enjoy a stroll on the beach, it was like forbidden, a tropical hot day, warm clear seas but unable to swim due to crocs and stingers. Our driver/ guide/ chef did a fantastic job and kept us entertained and shared his in depth local knowledge almost continuously. Fantastic day thanks Chris. Took a star off as I would have been more comfortable with seat belts on the bus.
