We were looking for a rain forest experience that didn't include sitting in an air conditioned bus. Kevin was great. He drove as through some amazing country and was knowledgeable about most things. Kevin could even laugh at himself. Being farmers we asked a lot of farming questions and Kevin admitted he wasn't so knowledgeable in that area yet he... More

We signed up for Kevin's tour on the advice of the Hilton Hotel. They described the tour as "Cairns own crocodile Dundee. Quite honestly Kevin has got the real Dundee beat by a mile. He gave us a guided tour through the rain forest for nine solid hours. Every question was answered with great humor and amazing insight. Kevin has... More

Three big cheers for Kevin Simpson! Our trip was “tree”mendous! Kevin's knowledge of the Daintree, Cairns, & Australia is vast, his wit and stories kept us laughing & interested, & his driving skills are superb. He is so welcoming he took a car load of strangers ages 4 to 59 including a teenager & at the end of the day... More

The day in the rainforest with Kevin ended up being the highlight of the entire Australia trip for our family. I would recommend it above and beyond any larger group tour to the Daintree. I was really torn about this booking - I thought the Daintree area might have the best scenery but I wanted a very small group like... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a day spent with Kevin Simpson on his eco safari. The trip through the rain forest adjacent to Cairns was very enlightening as Kevin has a wealth of knowledge which he conveys clearly and entertainingly along with a good dash of Aussie humour. The afternoon section where the Clohesy River is forded several times,... More

Excellent day out started off with our on time pick-up by Kevin our guide for the day. Kevin's great fun, really interesting and very knowledgeable. You can ask him practically anything (except winning Lotto numbers) and he'll be able to give you a good answer. The safari covers quite a bit of ground but there's plenty of comfort breaks and...

Our family of four recently joined Kevin on a wilderness Eco Safari adventure. We loved being able to go off road and see some areas of the rainforest that are rarely visited. Our kids enjoyed playing in the streams and rivers and we all felt like we learned so much about the area. Kevin is very funny and engaging, which... More

We had a lovely cup of tea & biscuits near a river, saw many beautiful trees, insects, wildlife, had a wonderful lunch, learned so many interesting... More

March 10, 2014, just completed his 10 hour tour of the rain-forest. Kevin really knows the territory. Let him guide you to the local rain-forest near Cairns rather than Daintree, which is two hours wasted just getting there and back. His back road selection is superb, His Toyota 4-wheel drive will get you in places, and out, that no one... More

We booked a days wilderness safari with Kevin and had an absolutely fantastic time. My wife and I, plus 12 year old daughter, really enjoyed the personal attention and genuine enthusiasm that Kevin gives to this full day exploring the hidden parts of the Rainforest. We got to some really "off the beaten track" places in his big 4x4 and... More
