This was a BRILLIANT tour! We covered a lot of ground & Brandon (Brendan?) our driver & guide provided lots of interesting information about the places we visited. Plenty of stops to stretch our legs & go to the loo - VERY important! The advantage of a smaller group tour than offered by bigger operators meant we were able to cover as much ground as possible.

Response From Barrier Reef Australia

Thanks Anne! The Tour Specialists are please to hear your visit to the World Heritage Listed Daintree Rainforest was enjoyable. We are lucky to have some really enthusiastic and experienced guides on many of our tours. The smaller groups are certainly the way to go as it offers the time and the opportunity to make the most of your day. We look forward to assisting you with your next holiday to Far North QLD.
