Great Tour of the Australian Rainforest. The tour guide Kevin, was so knowledgeable and so easy to talk to and ask questions. He makes you feel like your just going out for a drive with a bunch of friends. Since the tour guide is also the owner of the company, he does a great job making sure you enjoy yourself.... More

Wilderness Eco safaris stays true to it's promise. It is a small group adventure into the rain forests, temperate zone and the edge of the outback. If you want to stay away from all things touristy and yet have an adventure with a knowledgeable guide then this is the tour to take in Cairns. We were out from 8 am... More

From the time Kevin picked us up from our accommodation, he lived up to "taking a few mates for a drive". Wonderful day exploring the rainforest... Cathedral fig trees, wildlife, bird life, Copperlode Dam and incredible scenery was the order of the day. Keep up the good work Kevin!

Tour guide Kevin, excellent - very knowledgable, and funny ! Didn't see another tourist all day. Great lunch and only four of us on the landrover so v comfortable. Not Daintree but not following loads of coach tourists either !

Because other tours were canceled due to bad weather caused by nearby cyclone Nathan we spent a lovely day in 4WD Toyota with our guide Kevin. From first to the last minute he amused us with funny stories somehow connected with our trip, history, landscape, animals, people,... Cathedral fig tree, walk through the rainy rainforest, Kuranda with waterfall, ... picturesque... More

This is a great tour if you want to have a one-day impression of Queensland, Australian lifestyle and nature. I would call it more of a scenic cruise (you spend most of the day in the car) than a Eco Tour, but because of the variety and Kev's great insight into the local life time passes in a breeze. You...

My friend and I spent a whole day exploring the wilderness of the Tablelands with Kevin and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We learnt lots and the day was nicely paced too... including treats like an ice cream parlour with the most fabulous and unusual flavours, a scrumptious and healthy picnic by a forest stream, fig trees that are hundreds (if...

We had a great day out with Kevin. He is a fun, friendly and very well informed driver and guide - a huge character who made the day truly enjoyable. After seeing the suburban wallabies near Cairns, it was off up to the Tablelands to lovely Lake Barrine where we had tea and a short walk - we were lucky... More

Picked Kevin from Tripadvisor. Knows his stuff and gives you a constant narration about the rainforest and local area and very entertaining guy. Meals were simple but good picnics. When Kevin said "I had to clear that tree out of the way last month" we thought yeah, right. Until near the end of our tour and high on a mountainside... More

Great things about this tour were Kevin the owner/guide and the small group. Fun hanging out with a comical Aussie and hearing his stories. Truck is very spacious and comfortable. Not so great, didn't seem like you see much. Starts with Rainforest which is cool for a bit. But after that it's just kind of countryside unless you're into the... More
