Ben was engaging and very well informed. This made a big difference to our day at the Daintree rainforest. The group size was great: any more than the total of 8 might have made interaction within the group more difficult. A great day was had by everyone on the bus. Worth every cent.

Jessica P

Wish we could of stayed a little longer at cape Tribulation. Seemed very rushed. I thought it was supposed to go till 5 and I think we got dropped off at around 3-3:30. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable and did apologize for rushing people. lunch was awesome and the restaurant was very nice to. Just wished for more time at the cape.
