We had a great day out! Brian, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, lovely to have a chat with and brought everything to make the day successful (like umbrellas and water). Everything was well organised, like the tour at the glow worm cave and lunch. The day’s activities were varied and well planned, with the most beautiful walk last and the longest trip in the bus at the end, when we were tired. Thank you so much for the awesome day!

Everything was well organised and ran smoothly. Brian is very knowledgeable about all we saw in the Rainforest and made it a very interesting tour. Highly recommend this tour for sure.

Had a great time with Shane. Very experienced and knowledgeable. He made us all feel relaxed whilst being very flexible with arrangements due to the weather changes during the day.

We had a great day. Much more driving than I had expected, but we had a great bus full of people and Brian out guide a was excellent. Fun, interesting day had by all!

All the travel sights in this tour only require short driving distance and the atmosphere of the rainforests are beautiful and cozy to walk
