The surprise highlight of this experience was being taken to Wudjal Wudjal waterfall by Kathleen Walker, one of the (both) traditional and legal owners. While there was mention of that made in the reviews I read on Trip Advisor, it actually formed a major part of the experience. I was surprisingly moved when she brought us to the edge of... More

Mike D'Arcy is a wonderful tour guide. He went above and beyond and showed us allot we would have never seen on our own. He was really gracious and never rushed my family when we were interested in a site. Booking with his wife was very easy and great communication!!!! Yes, we highly recommend his tour!!!

My husband and I have been to far north QLD before, however on this trip we wanted to immerse ourselves in the 'real' Daintree. We love the popular tourist spots, but sometimes you don't get to really experience what's 'behind the scenes' and in such a beautiful and amazing place as far north QLD, that's exactly what you want to...

Mike is one of the most knowledgeable and interesting people I've ever met. This, coupled with the most spectacular rainforest and beaches, made it a day to remember. If you have a 4x4 you could drive to Cooktown yourself, but you'd miss so much. Can't believe how much Mike managed to pack into the day, without making it feel rushed.

This tour is fabulous, if you only have time to do one thing in Daintree you should do this. We did the half day tour to Wugal Wugal and back. Mike is super-friendly and so knowledgeable about the wildlife and forest/beach. There is a lot to see and both forest & beaches are beautiful. The vehicle is comfortable even when... More

We had a fantastic day touring with Mike on Bloomfield Track from Cape Tribulation to Cooktown and back. The group was small (he only takes six) so there were four in our family and a lovely couple. It was immediately clear that Mike knew exactly what he was doing and had planned the itinerary and attractions so that we would... More

Had a great day touring with Mike and the other guests. Mike was a wealth of information and tailored the trip to suit our small group. We were picked up and returned back to accommodation at Cape Tribulation. A relaxing way to do the Bloomfield Track!

Our family met Mike D'Arcy at a restaurant in the town of Cape Tribulation 1PM for our half day tour of the Bloomfield Track. Mike made a real effort to connect with all of us, including our two teenage kids, suggesting that we rotate position in his 4WD vehicle so that we could all get turns in the front seat.... More

We had the best day! Bumping along the rocky Bloomfield Track with Mike D'Arcy on our Daintree Tour. From the moment he met our family of 7, he called us by name and tailored the tour to suit the interest of all. He kept us captivated with his interesting commentary and extensive local knowledge. He drove carefully, with stops of... More
