Eli is the funniest Guide we've ever met. You should do this tour. A lot to see in one day. You also can split it into two days and sleep at Cape Tribulation. Nice feeling in the Rainforest. Cheers and Yalada

Hi, I'm out trying to find some tour which gives not just "picture moments" but a REAL tour of the rainforest and native's area - with a talking guide who knows what he/she is talking about. Could you say that the daytour is that? Kind regards Petra
