From the time we were collected early in the morning from our hotel in Cairns until we were dropped back after dark on the third day we enjoyed this full tour… well informed guide who knew the country and culture of this area, as well as being a careful and safe driver. The places we stayed at were comfortable and provided good local food We had time to explore on each of our stops.

This was an amazing tour in air conditioned comfort of the 4 wheel drive tour bus seeing sights we had never seen before. The guide was great explaining different sights. The accommodation was wonderful. Spending a night in a cabin in the middle of the Daintree was just beautiful. All the meals were lovely. We can highly recommend this tour, we saw parts of North Qld we had never dreamed of. Excellent trip
