          Beautiful walk
          Beautiful walk on a private part of the tropical rainforest where we didn’t see any other people. Allister was very knowledgeable and showed us many different plants, some insects and birds. The creek was a beautiful spot to cool down after te walk.

          Exceptional service in the Daintree
          We had a great day out in the rainforest. Alister our guide was amazingly informative showing us lots of cool things in the bush. The trek up to the private waterfall is an easy hike but beautiful. We loved taking a dip and our daughter couldn’t get enough of the rope swing. Lunch was good with the highlight learning about all the exotic fruits from around the world. We were lucky enough to taste a number of them. On the river safari we were lucky enough to spot two female crocodiles. Even if we didn’t see any crocodiles we would have been happy as the trip on the water is therapeutic in the solar powered boat. Great day out!! Highly recommend.

          Rainforest walk.
          We went on the more challenging walk to a waterfall in the rainforest with Allister today. Allister was really welcoming and very knowledgable about the rain forest. The views were stunning and while it was called challenging for any fit people this would definitely be the rainforest walk of choice. The swimming location was beautiful and lunch was excellent.

          This is a highlight - don't miss it!
          This day was one of the big highlights of our family holiday. We really enjoyed so many things about this experience. Firstly, Allister is a lovely, informative, thoughtful, fun guide who knew so much about the area and the Daintree. Secondly, it was special, good value and delivered for the whole family in all areas. The lunch with exotic fruits was really unique and the kids loved that we got to see so many crocodiles (close up!). I will definitely be recommending this to any friends coming up this way. Thanks Allister for a really fabulous day!

          Amazing experience with knowledgeable and kindhearted guide
          We spent two wonderful days touring with Allister. He is extremely knowledgeable about the geological history of Australia and the continent’s flora and fauna. He was very accommodating to our needs and patient when I wanted to stop and take photos. He is very attentive to his clients and looks out for their welfare. Allister made our experience in the Daintree exceptional and we were truly sad to part ways with him.

          Beauty Valley Falls Full Day Tour
          Had an amazing full day tour with Allister on the 29th of September 2023. The tour began with an enjoyable but moderate 1hr hike to a breathtaking waterfall. As the hike was on private land, the best part was that we had the whole waterfall to ourselves. Alastair was also great at explaining fascinating details about the fauna and flora, turning a simple hike into an educational and memorable experience. Lunch was a highlight in itself, we had a variety of options between barramundi, kangaroo, steak, chicken and a vegetarian option. The restaurant also provided a range of exotic fruits and gave a detailed talk of each one. The final part of the tour was a crocodile cruise on the Daintree river, where we saw 5 crocodiles on the 1 hour cruise. Overall, we had a great time and would definitely recommend it to others.

          Magical walk and experience
          My friend and I had a fantastic time on the tour. The scenery was beautiful, Allister was very knowledgeable and indulged all my questions, and the walk itself was just strenuous enough that you felt you deserved that ice cream at the end of the day but not so strenuous that you couldn't move after. The highlight for me was the privacy aspect. We didn't meet another single person. It truly felt like we had stepped into a quiet unseen part of the Daintree. Something I was very much craving. Thanks for the wonderful afternoon Allister.

        Allister picked us up from our accomodation in Port Douglas and drove us to the starting point for our hike. He has an incredible knowledge about the area and is engaging and easy to communicate with. The hike itself was not overly strenuous, the route seemed almost untouched - giving you the full Daintree rainforest experience. As we approached the waterfall you could hear the water, but when we saw the actual waterfall it was simply breathtaking. We swam in the pristine, cool water and enjoyed the remoteness of the location.
        After we walked back, Allister drove us to our lunch destination where we were greeted by Richard the owner and offered refreshments. Lunch was delicious - we chose our meals the day prior and the food did not disappoint. The meals were served with tropical fruit, and Richard made a point of coming to our table after we had finished to teach us about the different tropical fruits, and their history.
        This tour simply has it all! A great half day option for those limited on time. This is a ‘must do’ for anyone visiting the area and wanting a unique, authentic experience! Thanks Allister!

        This half day tour is perfect for those looking for an authentic, engaging, educational and active rainforest experience that is a little off the beaten tourist track. We were picked up from our Pt Douglas resort by Allister and then after a short drive arrived at a “secret” property to start our “hike”. The easy walk follows a creek along a rarely trod trail to end at a waterfall and swimming hole. Throughout the walk Allister shares his excellent botanical knowledge effortlessly and the easy pace creates a space to really immerse yourself in the beauty that surrounds you.
        At the waterfall you can take a swim in the pool and there are goggles available if you want to explore the waterhole. Fish abound and I even saw a turtle!
        The lunch at the Daintree Tea House was excellent and the host shares his encyclopaedic knowledge of tropical fruits (that you have just eaten) in a short presentation that is engaging and informative.
        Allister is a wonderful guide with a friendly, engaging and genuine manner that made the tour a real pleasurable & memorable experience.

        We spent a beautiful day hiking through a cleared path in the Daintree Rainforest. Our guide was Alistair who shared expert knowledge and about his personal experiences living in the Rainforest. We learnt so much about the life of the rainforest and its amazing resilience and adaptability to thrive. At the end of our hike it opened up to a stunningly beautiful waterfall where we swam in cool clean refreshing waters. It was such a highlight. Afterwards we were taken to a secluded cafe in the Daintree Village for lunch. We had a delicious lunch complimented by a presentation by the host about the origins of the tropical fruits which were included on our plates. We highly recommended this activity as after 5 trips to Port Douglas this experience is up there with one of our favourites.

        This tour is a must do for anyone who wants to get the authentic Daintree experience without the crowds. Allister was delightful from the moment he picked us up at our accommodation in Port Douglas to the moment he dropped us off. He was friendly and super informative. We stopped on the way to grab a morning coffee and on the way back he offered to take us to the supermarket for some shopping. The tour itself was so relaxing and peaceful and the swim at the waterfall at the end was refreshing and beautiful. After our return walk it was off for a delicious lunch accompanied by a very interesting talk by the owner about the origins of the tropical fruit we were eating. I highly recommend this tour to anyone. Thanks Alister for a fabulous experience!

        Wow! What a day! Thank you Allister for giving us the most amazing one of a kind day in the Daintree Rainforest -one that we could only have dreamt of. We loved hearing all about the history of far north QLD, and the Daintree region from one of the true locals. Your passion and love for the area comes through in your words and stories.
        Thank you for guiding us through the rainforest to the most magical lagoon. It truly felt like we had our very own swimming hole with a waterfall. It was incredible and we can’t thank you enough!

        What an incredible Daintree experience like no other. With access to a private property and waterfall, you won’t find another tour like this. Allister was an amazing tour guide we learnt so much not only about the rainforest, but also about the history of the area and interesting insights we never knew deposte having visited Port Douglas many times. The lunch and fruit tasting was delicious. Beautiful waterfall to swim in after a nice, pretty easy hike.

        If you’re looking for a very special day out in the Daintree, Allister is your man. Very knowledgeable about the area and the rainforest, small groups - max 11 but there were only 6 on our tour which made it even more enjoyable. Highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed.

        What a fantastic day. Allister was a fount of knowledge. Learned so much about the local habitat both on the trek and the drive to the rainforest. His gentle passion for his surroundings and community was clearly evident. Swimming by the waterfall was a holiday highlight and day punctuated by a local lunch. Great day. Highly recommend.

        We had an amazing experience. Our tour guide Allister led us up along a creek and deep into the rainforest. We had a tea break at the foot of a beautiful waterfall. The day was capped off with a swim and lunch at a local restaurant. Alister was the perfect guide, friendly and knowledgeable about the local ecosystems and local history. I'd thoroughly recommend this tour.
