We did the Daintree Dreaming with Ngadiku Walk tour. Our guide Bridgette was very sweet and knowledgeable. For the first part of the tour, we visited the Daintree Rainforest where we met Dingo, our Aboriginal guide for our walk. He was incredible! He was kind, friendly, engaging, knowledgeable, and was a wonderful teacher. Before entering the forest, we participated in... More

The driver was great, very friendly and knowledgeable. The bus seats were also fairly comfy, which is important on a day trip that starts at 6.30am and finishes after 9pm. The morning tea stop was lovely. The lunch was a bit odd though. Apparently the pub where they used to stop at 12ish has gone downhill, so instead of having... More

Thank you for your review. We are looking into a new lunch stop this year but as you would have seen we are in a remote area and there are limited choices. Looks like the guide forgot to take water on this day, my apologies. Enjoy the remainder of your holiday and stay in Australia Regards Maryanne More

Fantastic day in Daintree forest and exploring beaches searching crabs and shells, hearing the stories told by the aboriginal people. Compliments to our guide, Bridget who could answer to all our questions, very prepared, patient, very nice person who made our trip very pleasant!

Booked on the one day tour to Cooktown. It was a long day but great value for money and I would definitely recommend. The 4wd vehicle is relatively comfortable which is good as you are in it a lot. You see a lot on this tour but a lot is on the move. Nicely air conditioned though. Morning tea at... More

We did the three day tour from Cairns to Cooktown via the Bloomfield Track. It was an excellent taste of the far north. Day 1 was through the Daintree to Cape Tribulation. and included short cruise on the river and walk through ancient forest. The guide was excellent with good knowledge of the forest. It was a very full day.... More

We went on this trip to Cooktown because we don't have a 4WD, it was amazing. The knowledge of the area that the guide had was amazing, something you wouldn't get if you did it yourself. Loads of fun and very interesting. Recommend to anyone

I went on the Daintree dreaming day tour with a friend (we are in our early 20's) and I am so impressed with all the guides we had! They were very friendly but still professional and looked after everyone without making us feel like kids on a school excursion. We had the most lovely lady driving our bus who explained... More

Our tour took us up the Bloomfield track to Cooktown and back to Port Douglas via the inland route, and we got to see some amazing scenery.
