We cannot praise Mike and Trish D'Arcy enough for the wonderful experience they laid on for us. From their eternal patience and good humour in dealing with our seemingly ever-changing travel plans to the superb tailormade tour of the rainforest (which suited everyone in our group from 80 year old, mobility impaired grandmother to superfit 18 year old grandson!)and not...

What a great way to experience the Daintree and Cape tribulation. Mike personalised our tour so that we saw everything we were hoping to see. He quickly recognised our interest in photography and took us to the best spots at the right times so we were able to capture all the great shots we were hoping for plus more. Mike... More

My dad and I had been planning a trip to Australia for over 6 years. Our trip with Mike was one of our highlights. He had so much local knowledge and really ensured that we had a great trip through the amazing rainforest and coast. Going to the Wijal waterfall was a truly great experience and we would highly recommend... More

We did the half-day tour from Cape Trib up the Bloomfield Track to the Wujal Wujal Falls. The tour was great and Mike is really friendly and ready to share all the knowledge he has about the rainforest. Really recommended.

Mike is warm, friendly, well informed and well connected to the local environment, so able to provide excellent commentary and information on many aspects of the rainforest and coast. We went with him up to the Wijal Wijal falls, where we met Francis Walker, one of the local family who manage the area - the falls are spectacular, even when... More

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Cape Tribulation. On holiday as a family of 6 (aged between 12 and 79) we took a full day tour to Cooktown - Mike picked us up from our accommodation in Cow Bay. He is an outstanding host - relaxed,friendly and very knowledgeable. The trip lasted almost 12 hours - we... More

We did the half-day tour from Cape Trib up the Bloomfield Track to the Wujal Wujal Falls. It was a hugely enjoyable trip with Mike fulfilling the roles of both expert guide and considerate host. The Daintree is so overwhelming in the breadth of its flora and fauna that, had we tried to explore it on our own, I am... More

I know he's' just doing his job' but I felt more like I was on a day out with a relative than on a paid tour. Mike has an easy manner and knows masses about the area, not just from living here but also from writing about it as a journalist. WE had a trip up just as far as... More

The trip with Mike was one of the last attraction we did during our 4 weeks trip down under and Mike made it unforgettable. It starting with a guided walk through the rainforest and continued on the Bloomfield Track with a nice ride up to the falls. We were able to stop crocks and later in the day went for... More

This tour with Mike was honestly the best tour I’ve ever had!!! Already before the booking we felt really comfortable with this company as we wrote friendly emails. The booking was really easy and we were picked up at our accommodation on time. After 5 mins on the road my father and me felt totally great with the group. We... More
