What a beautiful tour choice. The scenery and guide was fantastic. A tour to the Cairns area will not be complete without a tour over the mountains to the Atherton Tablelands with these guys. Great day out and highly recommended. Thanks Brett for an awesome day

Amazing The customer service for this tour was awesome! I have forgotten his name but he is a German guy and he was really great, educated, informative and fun! He really made the trip special for my partner and I! The sites we saw and our lunch was incredible! The food was of restaurant quality (I have now gone and bought the ingredients of the meal they served, aiming to replicate the amazing dish) and the ice-cream stop on the way home was incredible! Could not rate this higher!!! Thank you so much!

I can't compliment this tour and tour company enough. We had such a great time inspite of the day starting with torrential rain. Our guide, John, was amazing - funny, knowledgeable and treated you like a valued customer, not a number or a backpacker to be herded like other tour companies seemed to do. The tour included a quick look at Port Douglas (no more or less than necessary) then morning tea at Mossman Gorge - civilised tea/coffee and damper scones with local honey and jam whilst listening to the dulcet tones of other tour guides herding people into lines. We then did a walk in Mossman Gorge to the suspension bridge, swimming not available today because funnily enough John didn't want us to die in the torrential downpour. If the rain bothered John he didn't let on he was still commited to us hearing all about the area and provided ponchos for those unprepared for the elements. Lunch was set in an outdoor area amongst the jungle and included a presentation and tasting of tropical fruits grown in the area - interesting angry tasty. We were lucky enough to see 4 crocodiles on our cruise down the Daintree river including the alpha male and female of the local area. Even without seeing crocs the cruise was still very interesting and a great viewpoint of the rainforest meeting waters edge. Added bonus was seeing a croc swimming in the river on our crossing back home too. John then took us on a guided walk through the Daintree where his knowledge and passion for the rainforest really shone. It's hard not to get excited about a 1000 year old tree the way he introduced it. Someone must have pulled some strings with mother nature because out came the sun for a glorious end to our tour at Cape Tribulation beach absolutely stunning. Don't skip ice cream on the way home the flavours are to die for (my tip is Passionfruit and Ginger). There was still time for one major highlight on the way home - we were lucky enough to see a male Cassowary and his chick!!! It was by far the best of all 3 tours with different companies that we did in Cairns due to the fabulous service and great facilities (bus, lunch etc). My tips -bring change of clothes and raincoat if it's a rainy day -snacks for way home as it's a long day and no real opportunities for snacks beyond ice cream post lunch -do yourself a favour and choose a unique flavoured ice cream as you won't get the opportunity anywhere in cairns

About Palm Cove
Where the foothills of the rainforest clad mountains meet the palm fringed beaches of the Coral Sea nestles Cairns' premier beach destination - Palm Cove.
A dawn walk in the ever present company of brightly coloured lorikeets, kookaburras, flocks of sulphur crested cockatoos, wallabies and rare green tree frogs, belies the fact that Palm Cove is just 20 minutes north of the Cairns International Airport.
Palm Cove, your ultimate lifestyle destination, is both affordable and caters for all accommodation needs, from international standard resorts to self catering holiday apartments, all carefully positioned amongst majestic melaleuca trees interspersed with coconut palms and tropical gardens.
Wherever you stay in Palm Cove you have access to the World Heritage rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef boarding from the Palm Cove Pier or you can simply enjoy nature's playground with an exciting challenge and adventures like white water rafting, canoeing, horse riding or trekking. Those who are less energetic can enjoy a fascinating glimpse of this ancient world dominated by pre-historic tree ferns, travelling by four-wheel drives, rainforest cableway, train or coach.
Palm Cove, with its distinctive character and intimate ambience, its old world charm with splashes of tropical colour, its Australian architecture, its idyllic setting, glorious sunshine, serenity and security - will enchant you! So take a leisurely stroll along the picturesque esplanade and enjoy the experience of the village shopping precinct with its many specialty shops. Take a swim on the patrolled beach, walk to the tranquil beaches of Clifton or Kewarra.
It's your holiday... floral scents, flashes of gigantic butterflies and the tiniest of brilliantly coloured sun birds, balmy nights and a magnificent beach front setting - this is Palm Cove. So whether you do it all or chose to do nothing, Palm Cove will leave you with a lifetime of memories to treasure.
Palm Cove is Cairns' most popular holiday beach, for locals and visitors. Its long sandy beach is lined by tropical coconut trees on one side and the clear, blue waters of the Coral Sea on the other. The beachfront esplanade is shaded by ancient paperbark trees and peppered with hotels, restaurants and retail opportunities. Cairns and its international and domestic airport is a 40-minute drive south, the rainforest is on the mountains behind you and the Great Barrier Reef lies offshore, waiting to be explored. A stunning destination in paradise.
