“Fantastic day in the jungle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

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 earth was amazing. You found an answer to each and every question. Thanks for the photos and the possibility to see the wujal wujal falls.
We travelled just with our grown up daughters and enjoyed cakes and tea with you very much.

“A fantastic tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Mike's tour was one of the highlights of our time in FNQ. We had a ball chasing and catching soldier crabs, eating fresh mangos, learning about traditional medicines and were lucky to spot a huge crocodile in the Bloomfield River. Mike was very obliging and looked after us all so well. A great tour for children and adults. Thanks Mike!!

“Best Value 4 x 4 Trip to Cooktown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

We did this tour with our three little ones and found it to be a brilliant trip. We did look at other trips and concluded that this one had by far the best reviews and to us seemed the best value. Incredibly interesting, the only draw back we found was the amount of sealed road was much greater than we thought. - though I cant say we would have fancied doing the 4x4 section by ourselves and we would have missed so much without Mike's knowledge. Thank you for a very memorable trip.

“Wonderful day trip with Mike Darcy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

My husband and I recently went with Mike for a day trip up through the Daintree Rainforest. Mike was a terrific guide who is not only fun to spend a day with, but he showed us all the very interesting and cool spots along the route. His knowledge of the flora and fauna is vast and he shared his love of this area with us for the day. Mike also gave us tips on the spots to stop on our way back that turned out to be very special nature walks in the rainforest. We would recommend Mike's tours to anyone interested in exploring the area in depth. We were so glad we heard about Mike and could spend the day with him.

“Mike D'Arcys 4WD tour one highlight of our stay in the Daintree”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Our full day tour with Mike tracking Captain Cook was full of sights and information that we would otherwise not have got. Mike is very knowledgable and fun to talk to. He quizzed us on what we had already learnt about the rainforest after a two day stay in the Daintree. He knew everything about the Bloomfield track which even had a traffic light at the time of our trip. We thoroughly enjoyed Keatings Lagoon before we reached Cooktown. It was full of water lilies and Jacanas (jesus birds) hopping from leaf to leaf - very impressive and a magical place. The Coral Trout fish and chips we had upon Mike's recommendation in Cooktown were the best we had on our 7-weeks trip to Australia. The spectacular landscape at Archer Point as well as Wujal Wujal falls (no swimming because of crocodiles) will stay in our memories long after our return to Germany. And finally Mike's recommendation of the book "Into the Blue" by Tony Horwitz was a great read giving a more detailed insight of Captain Cook and his travels.
