Premium Daintree & Cape Tribulation Tour

Posted: 30 Apr 2015

Its a long day, being out for over 11 hours, but well worth it! There is alot packed into the daintree rainforest tour we did and what made it special was our guide. She had great knowledge of the various plants and habitats we saw and had a great way of bringing it to life.Lunch was also good and we had somebody explaining all the various fruits and vegetables including how they are grown and a brief history of them. Vegetarian food was good as well, which can often be hit or miss..

My husband and I had the pleasure of going on the Daintree/Cape Tribulation Day Tour. This tour was fantastic! Our guide Terry was so knowledgeable and fun. It is a long day with lots of time in the van, but he provides great information during the time and the views are gorgeous. All of the stops were magnificent. The Daintree Treehouse for lunch served the best meals and the tropical fruit lecture was great, especially since we were able to try most of the fruits. The fruit plantation at the end of the day on the way back sells ice cream and that was a real nice/special treat (worth the $6). We would definitely recommend this tour!

What a packed day full of beautiful sights and laughter! We were picked up at 7am from cairns and driven to mossman gorge. We had delicious damper with daintree tea and coffee in the cafe here. Then we set off on a short walk through the mossman gorge - what a spectacular sight! Our guide Darryl was full of knowledge and humour.We then drove to The Daintree Teahouse for an equally sumptuous lunch (several choices, we chose barramundi) with an exotic fruit tasting and presentation by the passionate owner. We continued to the daintree river for a cruise where we saw a croc. Then we headed to cape tribulation where the rainforest meets the beach, which was breathtaking.On the trip home, we saw a cassowary, ate fruit icecream at the daintree icecream factory and stopped at 2 lookouts.Getting home at 6pm, we were filled with memories and stories, as well as gratuity for having such a gracious, funny and patient guide named Darryl!Highly recommended tour!!

Darryl's knowledge about Australia, Queensland, and Cairns is vast... the information that he laid on us about the local area's of Cairns to Cape Tribulation... the people... (both the Indigenous and Foreigners a like)...the native and introduced animals... the native and introduced plant life...and many facets of the rainforest of Australia. This open my eyes... yes it did...It is good that the knowledge passed on by people like Darryl gives us (people...) the understanding and the development to interact with... the environment... the rainforest... the wild life... and the people of the land...The high lights were:... Mossman Gorge (the walk through rainforest)... Daintree Tea House Restaurant (the owners knowledge of fruit)... Daintree River (our guide on the boat... his knowledge of the ecosystem was out there)... Cape Tribulation... Daintree Ice Cream Company (ICE Cream... Yes Oh Yes)... and then there was Darryl... you might win the cricket (with an under arm, not)... the rugby league (maybe, the Kiwis, yes)... and rugby union (that could be a long time... AB's brother)... ps... we saw a CASSOWARY... cool...I would recommend this tour to everyone... the old a young a like... Yes I would... hope you all have a nice day ;-) Reg's, Inga & Joe

My sister and I went on the tour and there was another 6 people so it was a nice small group! We had Cathy who was wonderful! It's amazing how much you realise you won't learn without a tour guide. Everywhere we went or drove she informed us off the history of it. Even just on the roads from leaving the hotel. It's really nice to have someone who has grown up there and can share facts and personal stories. We did the full day tour, and the afternoon tea at Mossman Gorge was delightful then the lunch was beautiful and set in a very beautiful place in the rainforest! Thank you for a wonderful day Cathy!

Amazing day, learnt so much and saw the most breathtaking views. Every part of this trip was incredible, and Steve is a brilliant tour guide. Lunch was by far the best meal I've eaten. This is the only way to visit Mossman Gorge, the Daintree and Cape Tribulation. We will be back again!

It was a great tour to explore the beauty of the Australian rain-forests and the history of this far away country. But it was our guide Cathy who made this trip so special!!! Firstly, the tour was very well planned and organised - we didn't feel tired or bored in spite of long distance we've covered. Secondly, Cathy herself made it unforgettable - she has a great sense of humor besides her tremendous experience and knowledge of the local life and nature. It really matters that she was born and raised in this area. I would strongly recommend her as a guide if you come to see this part of the world full of wonders

Our tour guide was Kathy. We did the Reef experience with Cape Tribulation, a full one day with 13 others. She was so professional, informative, entertaining, funny and always had a story or experience she shared and made the day a great enjoyable experience. Lunch was an also an incredible tasty and informative experience as well, with a large variety of locally grown exotic fruits as a restaurant nestled in the rain forest.. The Daintree River Cruise was the only thing I would change. The river guide admitted that he hadn't seen any crocs for 3 weeks and that was a let down for my kids as they thought they would see at least one. If they know that there are no crocs around, perhaps change the days timetable and spend more time at Cape Tribulation.Cape Tribulation was simply unchanged and beautiful. A trip worth going on and Kathy was simply just brilliant. Thank you. Remember it is a long day but worth it.

We paired the Reef Experience with Cape Tribulation. For the Cape Trib half we had a fantastic small group (12 people) tour experience. Our guide Steve was incredibly informative and entertaining, and educated us about the geographic area, the natural wonders, and included small and large bits of information that we would never have learned otherwise. Steve weaved stories with explanations about the region, flora, fauna, and people, local and otherwise. Lunch was an incredible tasty and informative experience as well, with a large variety of locally grown exotic fruits. All of the stops were well timed and interesting. Highly recommend Discovery Tours Australia!

We had an amazing one day tour. Thanks to Steve, our very informative guide, we came away with far more knowledge & appreciation of these incredible places. Had the best line caught wild Barramundi for lunch in a beautiful rainforest restaurant. Being part of a small group meant a far more personalised enjoyable day. Could of stayed all day at Mossman gorge. Amazing Daintree river cruise with Dave, Australia's "real crocodile dundee". Highly recommend this trip.Peter, Pina and Nicole.

An Awesome Tour

Posted: 05 Jan 2015

We selected Discovery Tours due to the small group size, excellent reviews and content. We were met for our tour on the morning of the tour at our hotel on time. Apparently, for that day, we were the only booking so they upgraded us to a personalized tour with Daryl in a Land_Rover 4X4. It was an awesome experience! Daryl is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and witty. He educated us on the history of the area, facts about the Rain forest, Aboriginal Culture. The lunchtime sampling of local fruit, meats, ice cream was just delightful! Mossman gorge, walk through the Rain forests and the drive up and down were just delightful. Daryl made the trip so much more enjoyable with his enthusiasm and engaging demeanor. My wife and I were in Australia for our 25th anniversary and we would highly recommend this tour!
