I recently did both the full day Daintree trip and the half day Rainforest Waterfall Tour. Commentary on both trips was fantastic with lots of local knowledge and interesting stories, thankyou to both Darryl and Mick. I highly recommend these trips, in particular the Half day 4WD tour as this was into areas not easily accessible to average traveller. Beautiful... More

There were 10 of us on a comfortable, cool, 14-person van. The drive along the coast and then through the rain forest was beautiful and I was glad I was not doing the driving myself on the narrow and twisty roads. Yes there is a lot of driving but the trip was nicely broken up with stops, and we got... More

By far, this was one of the best tours my group had Down Under. Mickey, was our driver, tour guide, and photographer. He fit right in with this crazy gang. We visited Kuranda, the rainforest, waterfalls and this gorgeous reservoir. Getting there on the off-road paths was even more adventurous. Nothing was a challenge for Mickey in our 4WD. This...

This trip was fantastic, we did the half day tour. Outside it was hot and steamy but that did not matter in the beautiful cool and comfy four wheel drive. Why take the train with hard seats and no air- con when you can get up close to nature without working up a sweat? The guide had an excellent knowledge... More

Visited all the highlights Port Douglas, Mossman Gorge, Daintree River, Cape Tribulation, scenic lookouts, rain forest etc etc. Daryl clearly knows the area well and is enthusiast about explaining the history of the area and all about the plant life, wildlife etc. Morning tea was great...

The pick-up at the hotel was great, the van clean and spacious, and Steve the driver/guide was friendly, well informed, personable and entertaining. Route destinations were well planned with interesting commentary along the way. Morning coffee, lunch in the rainforest and a visit to the unique ice cream maker proved delicious! The river cruise and the cable ferry were very... More
