Daintree And Cape Trbulation Tour

Posted: 03 Mar 2016

I like the fact that the group size with the company is smaller. We had 13 people, others had full buses. Singe of the lookouts were crowded enough. I can't imagine doing a large group. The tour was organized , on time other than issues created by guests

What a great day, my 12yr old son and I had limited time in Cairns and we wanted to see a snapshot of the national park - what a lot was fitted in to the day! Our guide was excellent and he made my son feel very welcome as he was the only child on the trip that day. We visited Mossman gorge, had a crocodile trip up the river, excellent lunch - with a knowledgeable owner sharing about the food served, then a visit into the rain-forest and Cape Tribulation! Loved it and want to go back. Thank you for the great introduction to the tropical north!

Our tour guide, Darryl, was knowledgeable and funny - and a local who gave our small group of ten all the inside stories regarding our tour. It's a long day but not once were we wishing it were anything less. Our rainforest experience was one of the best parts, thanks to Darryl sharing his expertise on the habitat of the wildlife and native fauna (which we never realized were so interesting). Plenty of stops, excellent and elegant luncheon at the Daintree Tea House, great river tour (yes, we saw crocs!) and a comfy transport coach. You bet we would recommend it.

We went on the 3 day Discovery tour to Cooktown and the Daintree. It was absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend it. Terry our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made sure we saw everything we could. He was very easy to get along with and we shared many laughs. There was only 3 of us so it was like a personalized tour.The food and the accommodation were great. Very very special memories created.

3 Day Cooktown, Daintree & Outback Adventiure

Posted: 26 Jun 2015

Discovery Tours provided a Landrover just for my family and I, with a very friendly, informative and professional tour guide - Steve. Steve gave lots of useful information about the rain forest in particular and Australia in general. He seemed to have an encylopedic knowledge of plants. He was prepared to flex the itinary as needed so we got the best out the trip. It was interesting to see the contrast between the rain forest and the outback and the tour also gave us an introduction to Aboriginal culture and the more modern history of the area.We also enjoyed seeing many crocodiles, snakes and lovely beaches. I recommend this tour to others who want to explore this area.

Just returned from a full day visit to Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation with Discovery Tours (discovery tours.com.au). From the time of booking, we were given professional attention by the company. All our queries were promptly - and honestly - responded to. No booking advance was taken and payment was made in cash on day of your. Terry, the driver-guide, was a storehouse of knowledge on the geology, botany and zoology of rainforests and constantly drew our attention to the features we were seeing. Full marks to him for his incredible professionalism. The company has also chosen well the restaurant for lunch stop: Daintree Teahouse. Also their Daintree River tour operator - Solar Whisper - was full of entertaining stories and made our one-hour cruise memorable. Glad we chose Discovery for this personalised tour (we were a group of 10) and would be glad to recommend it to others. You can't go wrong with them.

There were only four of us in the 4WD on the day. After scenic tour up the coast we had an easy walk along rainforest boardwalks at Mossman Gorge with knowledgeable commentary from our Guide, Jean. Lunch at the unique Daintree Tea Rooms. Then a boat ride along the Daintree River where the crocodiles were out in force! Then to tranquil, beautiful Cape Tribulation and finally sample natural ice cream to watch the sunset over the mountains as a perfect end to the day and opportunity to absorb what we'd experienced. Thank you Jean for an entertaining and informative experience. Would recommend to anyone.

We travelled to Port Douglas, Mossman Gorge, Daintree Forest and Cape Tribulation with Terry. Our tour was small - only 13 in the bus. We were informed about local attractions as we travelled along, shown wildlife, especially the cassowaries and crocodiles. Well fed and well cared for. Terry was very informative about local attractions, and knowledgeable about local inhabitants and agriculture. This was a long, but very enjoyable day, where we saw so much more than we would have if we had tried to do this on our own. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get a snapshot of this part of Australia.

This full day trip will leave you grinning from ear-to-ear and totally tuckered, given its full array of walks, tastings, and lengthy drives. Well worth it and I highly recommend you ask for Steve – who’s a walking encyclopedia of Australian, ecological, and cultural lore, and a damn fine guide. You’ll start the morning off, bright and early with a drive to the Mossman Gorge, where tea/coffee and scones will be waiting for you at the visitors’ center. Then you’ll proceed to a guided walk around the Gorge, looking at Jurassic-age living fossils like Hope’s Cycad, trekking across an Indiana Jone-esque suspension bridge, and admiring the thick rain forest canopy and the beautiful river that makes the gorge famous.Then you’ll head off for lunch at the Daintree tea house, where you’ll be given a demonstration of the various and sundry exotic fruits on offer in the region – many of which will be on your plate of something scrumptious (like barramundi or kangaroo). Post lunch, you’re off to a river cruise, where David will take you on Solar Whisper (a solar-powered boat that eases along the Daintree river for croc-spotting and other wildlife observing). Then it’ll be off to Cape Tribulation, where you’ll do two beach and forest walks, where Steve did a marvelous commentary job, walking us through the millions of years of evolution needed to make this place the lusciously green wonderland it is. We lucked out and had a massive cassowary (2nd largest bird on planet, endangered, and local Daintree resident) waltz down the boardwalk while we were on tour. Following your two walks, it’ll be off to ice cream at the Cape Trib creamery (delicious), then back on the long drive home. All in all, well commentated, organized, and balanced in terms of activities. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and recommend you put this on your to-do list.
