Kevin has so much energy and is the primary reason why this rainforest adventure was a great way to spend the day. He was not just on time, he was 5 minutes early to pick us up (always appreciate this, since many tour operators run a little late). He has an incredible memory for names and seeks to engage every...

Kevin greeted us at our hotel with an energy and enthusiasm that even got our (non-morning friendly) teenagers up and excited to begin our day's adventure. This was the second day of our travels in Cairns (first day was spent snorkeling at the GBR), and we wanted to see the rainforest and outback in a smaller group setting. Hiking the... More

We were pretty impressed with the whole day, right from the start when Kevin picked us up from our hotel he got everyone involved and talking, managed to remember everyones names and where they were from all day. He was full of knowledge about the area and was cracking jokes all day. He is very passionate about the area and... More

Small personalised tour this is the real thing. Kevin picked us up and introductions were made there was six of us. Kevin's a fantastic guide really friendly, funny guy and a wealth of knowledge. Right from the start he involves everyone remembering everyone's names and included us all in his conversations. This is a real 4WD off road trip we... More

What a fabulous experience! Kevin is pure joy and nonstop fun! All his personal touches made us feel like one big family. From the pick up and drop off right at our front door to the homemade (thanks to his wife) lunch off the beaten path, we felt totally cared for while learning all at the same time. My husband...

Went on the trip with our two twenty something daughters. We all loved the trip. An excellent way to see the rainforest without being in a long line of tourists. Kevin was entertaining and very informative. A great day out.

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
