A great day out! The driver guide was superb. There was never a dull moment!! The rainforest walk was great and the rainforest cruise at the end was unusually interesting. Lunch was delicious and served in a charming setting. The Spanish Castle bit could be dispensed with, although the owners were welcoming and the tea very good. We learned a lot on this tour and really had fun.
