“Cape York Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

We took the 8 day tour from the top of Australia back to Cairns via 4 wheel SUV through the dirt of the outback. Fly to Horn island near Cape York and met by big Derek who was our driver and tour guide for the trip for us and 2 others. Derek made the trip as he was an excellent driver, knew wildlife and aborigine life, plus a great story teller. As their literature warns you do not expect luxury accommodations on this trip because there are none out there. First 2 nights were in a tent with a shower, sink , toilet and duck tape fans but right next to the beach with fantastic starlight. All the meals on the trip were very good including a fantastic barramundi cooked at the Cape Weymouth Portland House. Highly recommended if you are looking for an adventure tour.

“Great Tour guide Dorris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Our family of 5 just recently took the tour with Dorris- a very lovely lade who knew so much about Daintree and the key thing is she is looking after us all through the journey. Because we have 4 year old kid and my parents are both over 60, she keep helping adjust our tours to suit every one and made everyone a very happy customer. We didnt miss any attraction points at all and yet we come back around 18.50 which I assume she must have done extra hours to fulfill our needs. We really appreciated that, thank you, from Mandy

“A great introduction to the Daintree Rainforest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

We chose this tour based on the reviews and the smaller size of the tour - with a maximum of 9 people we were guaranteed a personal experience. We were even luckier with only 4 of us plus the tour guide, Trevor, on the tour. We had a lovely day with very few crowds encountered, seemless organisation and a tour guide that made us all very excited about what we were seeing and experiencing. The knowledge around the Daintree Rainforest and the plants, history and its importance were exactly what I was hoping for. I would highly recommend this tour.
