One of the best tours I have ever done! Dave is a great host and it's just great fun! We had 9 people at max and it was very personalised.
Anyone looking for a day out this is it!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

My family took the Daintree rainforest excursion with Dave and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. From the very moment we met Dave at our pick up point to the very end, there was always a feeling of excitement and enthusiasm. Dave told us all about the Mossman Gorge, the rainforest, Cape Tribulation and stories of Captian Cook. He is a great story teller and so knowledgeable about the plants and animals of the rainforest! We had snacktime and a delicious sit down meal during the day. The group of 9 strangers had become good friends by the end of the tour. This is an event you don't want to miss.

“Daintree Wonder Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

What an amazing tour. My sister and my niece flew in from Dallas, TX and I was looking for a "kid friendly tour" of the Daintree Rainforest for them to see. Daintree Wonder Tours was one of the only providers of a tour for a younger audience. Man, what a great trip. Even though there were showers throughout the day, it ended up being GREAT. We didn't get to swim in the forest due to the amount of run off water, nor did we see any crocodiles, but the rest of our adventure was awesome. Dave was a great guide and very knowledgeable and all of our companions on the trip were great as well and very attentive of our little one!!! The food on the trip was excellent as well!!! Overall, it was a great day for our last day in Port Douglas!!!

“Simply amazing trip with a superb guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

From early morning pick up this day was just fantastic. Dave our guide / driver/ teller of stories was full of incurious enthusiasm and obvious passion for the Daintree forest. We stopped for walks at Mossman gorge, Cape Trib beach (also tea and homemade cakes) and a boardwalk through the rainforest. Everywhere we went Dave was there to point out things we would never have seen as sole travellers. Then we had lunch in a rainforest lodge hotel, and some had a swim in the nearby river. Off back on the road with a short stop for a tropical fruit ice cream before an afternoon cruise on the Daintree river where we saw crocs, tree frogs and other wildlife. Absolutely exhausted by end of a glorious day and full of admiration for Dave and all the others working to protect this wonderful and precious environment. Go on this tour if you get the chance.
