Kev the tour guide is very knowledgeable and very humorous, a real bush man. His wife made us a delicious lunch which was enjoyed by the river. The sights were amazing, and the tour was private (just the two of us). An incredible day!

For our Rainforest adventure trip we chose Kevin and his Wilderness Eco Safari and it was the best choice ever. Kevin, the owner who runs the business alone, is an expert of flora and fauna of the Rainforest. He picked us up from our hotel and drove us on remote streets through the Rainforest until we reached Mareeba were we... More

A very high quality tour. Kevin is friendly, keen and knowledgeable. The tour is well planned to give a good experience of the wide variety of life, ecology and economy of the area without it being a study tour. Plenty of good ventures into the more remote areas through gated roads accessible only with the key. Good conversation, excellent picnic,... More

A wonderful day touring with the owner/operator, Kevin. The tour alone would have been a great experience but Kevin takes it over the top. He is a wonderful guide and all-around pleasure to be with. We got to see the wide variety of climates that exist in a relatively compact area in the Cairns region, much of it on trail... More

Above all he is such a fun guy to be around. Definitely recommend this authentic tour for those who want to get away from the... More

Kevin picked us up from Redlynch Valley,which is not exactly a central location, and the day got off to a bright and cheerful start. He's a good-natured, knowledgeable guide and very good at including everyone in the group. We agree with all the other comments in the Five Star Ratings and consider this trip to be worth every penny. He... More

We had a fantastic day with Kevin to see the different landscapes of northern Queensland. We were lucky to be in such a small and private tour. Kevin is definitely the highlight of the trip. He has this really natural and smart Aussie jokes along with a great biology knowledges. We drove past a home-made ice-cream shop and get to... More

We have just returned from our day trip with Kevin. 8am pickup in a proper 4x4 which in definately required for a large part of the trip. Dropped back at 5pm. We had a fantastic time. Kevin is both knowledgable and easy to get along with, spotting and showing us many things which we would have just driven past by... More

Kevin is an awesome guide and he has to be as the business is owned by him so it is a very personal attitude. He was cracking jokes all the time and at the same time giving very interesting and useful comments about animals (that we saw a lot) and plants in the forests. So totally enjoyable tour to see...
