The tour is roughly 12 hours. There is much riding, but the guide educates you as sugar cane fields, rivers, and rainforest passes by. The smooth boat ride up the Daintree River was a highlight as we saw occasional snakes, crocodiles, and birds. However, crocs are not lying everywhere; they have to be sought out, but our guide did an excellent job finding them. While walking through the rainforest, there were a great many trees and shrubs to see, but not so many animals, frogs, or insects. Yes, no mosquitos or gnats, but at night they come out, I was told. I would have liked to see more animals and especially frogs, but their absence is not unusual. I have been to two other rainforests--and animals are elusive or found primarily at night.

A meal is included--beef, sausage, and fish ok--but the cole slaw and fruits were very good and the staff very nice. I strongly recommend this tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable about economics, environment, and even legislation, yet he was not preachy. I saw a great deal in one day and left longing for more. That is success.

The trip was really good, but the time at Cape Tribulation was a bit of a let down, just walked on the beach for a while and off again. The rainforest is wonderful and the lunch was brilliant !! Would recommend the trip.

Gorgeous vantage points and coastline! Our guide, Allison, was phenomenal. She shared so much information about Cairns, the coast, Daintree and Cape Trib. The lunch was phenomenal, the scenery spectacular and each stop offered a different perspective of the area.
