I had a fabulous day on this tour. I was initially concerned by all the images on the website of young people but in the day we had a predominantly ‘less young’ group. The tour was led by Sam who did an awesome job of making everyone feel comfortable and safe, and encouraged people to ‘have a go’. The group bonded really well over the day and it was no problem doing it as a solo traveller. The waterfalls were fabulous, we saw two platypuses in the stream, and generally had a great day.

Just did a fantastic nature tour with Paul from Waitawhile. He pointed out so much wildlife that we would never have seen on our own. It was truly special. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy the riches of this rainforest with a very informative guide.

It was a great experience.Our tour guy was Sam who was funny, dynamic , energetic and nothing was too hard . We saw amazing waterfalls, rainforests and great walks. We even got to see a couple of platypus. At no time did we feel rushed and Sam tried to accommodate everyone’s needs. He kept us entertained with jokes and stories . It is great value for money considering the many spots we visited . The whole trip ran smoothly and we would highly recommend it.

We really enjoyed this tour because it allowed us to visit several different places, each with something different to discover. Our guide, Scott, was very helpful and knowledgeable. As we were a small group, Scott was flexible with our timetable. We even stopped on the way to buy fresh bananas from a local grower. Recommend this tour.

Snorkeling the reef was excellent the staff on board very friendly but the highlight was the helicopter ride back to cairns. Seeing the reef from the air topped off a great day.
