Would 100% recommend this tour to anyone who wants to go to the Daintree, and the fact you get to... More

I did the Tully River White Water Rafting day-trip and was really impressed. The tour guide Marty was very knowledgable and professional. The various rafting guides also made the day alot of fun. The Tully river is a great place to raft and unlike any other rafting I have ever gone on. The only thing that really let Raging Thunder... More

Highly recommend this tour. I chose this company as we really wanted to swim at Mossman Gorge and this seems like one of the only companies that do that. Sadly it poured rain just as we arrived but we still swam and enjoyed it. My only criticism is it would have been nice to have more time as we only... More

This is a really long but good day. There is a lot of driving but Jack is a great driver! The stops are all very short it felt rushed sometimes but it has to happen as the rainforest is such questions long drive away. We saw a crocodile and 2 cassawaries! I'm really happy I joined this trip. I know... More

Our guide was so much fun and very informative. He made the trip so much better than it already was. We got to see huge spiders, eat ants, stop at a homemade ice cream place, and swim in a cool river/creek. I would definitely recommend this!!!!!!
