Rated "Excellent" on TripAdvisor

Leisurely, friendly, and professional

"Warren was our guide on a wet and overcast day. I found him to be genuinely friendly, and passionate about his work and environment. My wife and I had a lovely time and despite the weather, saw a few freshies, and other local wildlife. Thanks again Warren, hope to be back soon."


"Nice time on the river with loads of information from Warren... saw wildlife including feeding fish and turtles ... freshies and a couple of cute welcome swallows.... learnt heaps about the rainforest."

Great value, relaxing and interesting, terrific host

"For a price considerably less than the over-the-top prices on other tourist "attractions" we were delighted with the relaxing riverboat cruise. Our lady host was wonderfully knowledgeable. Highly recommended."

Do this, do this, DO THIS!!

"Our guide, Warren, was so knowledgeable about the area, the rainforest, the wildlife and the river. Great trip, saw crocodiles, turtles and lots of fish. Fed the fish, and got up fairly close to a croc. Relaxed trip going down the river, but don't miss it."

Best tour in Kuranda

"This was such a worthwhile tour away from the crowds. The boat is small and not overcrowded. Our host, Warren, was knowledgeable and very friendly. The children loved feeding the turtles and fish. Would highly recommend!"
