Scotty, our guide, was fun and knowledgeable. We loved Branden, the Aboriginal guide- he knocked mangoes from trees, taught us to find clams and even cook up a fresh turtle for us to try! The rainforest was beautiful! Loved the fresh water swim. It is all day and pricey, but we thought it was worth every penny.

We were picked up on time from our Port Douglas accommodation. This was an excellent well planned day out which gave everything that was promised. Our guide Gary was knowledgeable & interesting. The included morning tea stop was delightful. Lunch at the Lion’s Den was spot on. I was amazed that some of our fellow travellers had room for dinner... More

Can highly recommend this full day trip, our guide Scotty was very informative and knowledgable. Morning tea at a fantastic setting in the daintree, lunch at Lions Den with a nice cold 'beverage' and on to Cooktown, where Scotty took the initiative to switch the order of our visit to Grassy Hill to ensure we got the best view before...

We took this tour in September 2013. After a small glitch in getting picked up for the wrong tour initially, the tour owner made an immediate accommodation so that we could enjoy the full tour on a different day. This tour goes through sugar cane fields and then the Daintree rainforest via the Bloomfield Track to Cooktown. We saw a... More

I had never done a full day Indigenous tour before doing the 1 day Daintree Dreaming tour with our guide Cravel. We started the day by being picked up in our comfortable vehicle and were whisked away to visit the studio of Brian (Binna) at his studio, Janbal. I was introduced to dot painting and took away a key chain... More

As I depart on the one day tour to Cooktown, Cathy, our driver/tour guide announced that she was 'born and bred in the Daintree, so we wouldn't get lost'. A comforting feeling when one sets out to some of Australia's remote areas with opposing landscapes as we cross from the lush coastal rainforest over the mountains of the Great Dividing... More
