Darcy of Daintree lives up to his name - he embodies the spirit of the daintree-nationalpark. Well relaxed and good-humoured he presents his profound knowledge of the secrets of the rainforest, which will be usually hidden for normal tourists. He is an acute observer who can reveal hidden little treasures and is able to excite the curiosity of his guests.... More

I'd always considered the Daintree as Jungle and not much else. I couldn't have been more wrong. Mike D'Arcy has a captivating knowledge of the place, it's people, history and the flora/fauna of the region and takes you through some vastly different country through the course of a half day or (as ours was) full day tour. His personality is... More

Excellent! This is a must do trip when you visit Cape Tribulation. On 16th Jan 2014 my wife, daughter and I took the day trip to Cooktown with Make Darcy. One could not have asked for a better guide as Mike was so knowledgeable about the land, its oldest inhabitants, the water, rainforest, flora and fauna as well as his... More

Thanks ever so much for the tour. It was fantastic. Your background knowledge (a terrific blend of natural and social history) made for a really informative and well balanced experience of the Daintree region – in fact the best tour (national or international) I have ever been on. I used to teach in ecotourism and for a period was a... More

My boyfriend, cousin and I spent a fantastic morning trip to Wujal Wujal with Mike. The day before it was raining all day, but we were able to complete our trip and arrive to our destination. Crossing the river was exciting and all the trip was perfect, with a lot of explanations about the area, the fauna and the flora... More

I booked a 4WD Tour through the rainforest and up to Cooktown for both my parents and my daughter. It was a full-day drive with Mike, our driver and guide. We discovered some amazing remote sandy beaches full of mangroves, rare eucalyptuses, volcanic formations and delightful waterfalls. We stopped at Wujal Wujal where we had a look at some beautiful...

A full day driving through rain forests, walking on deserted beaches, picnics overlooking rivers spotting crocodiles, historic Cooktown with museum and botanical garden--and absorbing lots of information tailored to the interest of the passengers. Good fun, fantastic scenery and photo opportunities everywhere. Thank you for aa big day. And if you have only 1/2 day: book the Bloomfield trip. It... More

Mike D'Arcy was a great guide on our trip to Wujal Wujal. Nice conversation, with no boring decorated speeches: during all the time, I felt he was flexible and attentive to our interests. We had a very short chat with Francis, in the aboriginal village. But it was very inspiring too, to get to know a little bit more about... More

Mikes knowledge and passion for the Rainforest was inspirational. All our questions were answered, even the ones we hadn't thought to ask. We we're taken to Wujal Wujal, where... More

Thanks Mike for the great day. We enjoyed the trip with you very much. You gave us different and exiting views on the beaches and the rain forest, lots of information on flora and fauna in the area and the way of living with the special weather conditions. Especially the historical part of the aborigines and the development of the... More
