“Memorable Day in North Queensland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Unwilling to risk driving on the left, and yet wanting to see north Queensland beyond the normal tourist areas, we chose to take the Perentie Outback Day tour. It turned out to be the perfect choice. Gary took my wife and I, even though we were the only ones who signed up that mid-October 2013 day, on a trip that we will remember forever. Through a range of ecosystems unique to this area we spent a full and completely satisfying day exploring rainforests, ranch land, historic towns, and remote dirt roads. Just that would have been more than enough, but Gary's knowledge of and love for the area added immensely to our understanding and appreciation of this part of Australia. With lots of stops for animal sightings, for food (why did America lose the "Morning Tea" tradition?) photos and restrooms, we wouldn't change a thing. We especially enjoyed meeting Ian with his amazing knowledge of mining and unrivaled collection of antique military vehicles and other memorabilia. Just a wonderful day all around!

“Diversity in a Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

The full day tour operated by Gary from Perentie Tours was a great snapshop of the diversity seen in AU. Starting on the coast and travelling canefields, tropical Rainforest, farmlands and Savannah country. The historical aspects of the mining of past years was interesting. Plenty of stops and photo ops. Has a bit of everything.

“Excellent all day tour to Daintree Rainforest and Cooktown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

This is an excellent well paced all day tour where the time just flew by thanks to the guides knowledge and personal experience. We drove through the Daintree Rainforest and the Bloomfield Track to Cooktown and returned to Port Douglas. There were several stops to observe native wildlife including crocodiles, termite hills, and birds, as well as scheduled stops for tea and lunch. It was obvious that our guide, Gary, is skilled at finding wildlife and he has a wealth of knowledge about local history and lore. This was a very enjoyable tour and we highly recommend it to anyone, regardless of age.

“THIS is the way to see the outback!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

This was a great and unique tour of the outback in the Cairns area. Our guide, Gary, was VERY knowledgeable and was a true "bush man". We got to see things on our private tour that we never would have found by ourselves or with a big commercial tour. Highly recommended!
