In the event of natural disaster weather events, the crew will assess the conditions and decide whether or not to go ahead with the tour. Safety for our crew and passengers is the top priority.

Reviews by our Cairns Tours customers

Shoken Nimi, 01 Aug 22
My favorite tour in Cairns. It is very interesting and exciting to see the jungle and the crocodiles.
Emma Lahey , 22 Jul 22
WOW, we covered so much in one day! It was an incredible tour! So much fun, wouldn't have done it any other way.
Niall Barton, 29 Jun 22
Really fun day out. Got to feed kangaroos and saw 2 big crocodiles on the river. The lunch was really nice. A good way to see the world's oldest rainforest.
Bianca Meadows, 26 May 22
I have wanted to see a rainforest since I was little and this did not disappoint. The place feels ancient with giant dinosaur birds crossing the road, and monstrous reptiles sitting by the river. The ice cream, lunch, and stop off at the wildlife park are the cherry on top of an already wonderful day out.
