We really enjoyed our tour with Pete. He has a wealth of knowledge and a love of nature. He grew up in Africa and then lived 20 years in Papau New Guinea. He has lived near the Daintree National Forest for nearly 20 years. He really helped us get to know the rainforest and have a unique experience. He took us in his Range Rover, which holds six tourists comfortably. He uses a headset in the vehicle, so it is easy for everyone to hear. His wife made excellent cookies for our morning snack and a great lunch. We ate very well on the tour. If you want a tour that can move at your leisure from someone who has a great passion for nature and deep knowledge of Daintree, I highly recommend you arrange a tour with Daintree Outback Tours.

We met Pete by his Airbnb and we decided to do a tour the next day with him. He accepted on short notice. We were really surprised of his knowledge, he knows so much and he is so passionate by what he is doing. We had fun and learn a lot,I would recommend his tour to people who want to see the rainforest. Thanks Pete

Well, I want to start off positive so I will say that Pete knows a lot about the plants and animals of this ancient forest. He was filled with amazing facts and we got a hands on activity as well as several tastes of the bush. I would definitely recommend this tour with ONE EXCEPTION. Make sure you stay on the marked paths with him. No path, don't go! We did get lost in the bush for 2 hours and poor Pete with his replaced knees and hip fell over 10 times. Luckily, my hubby and I were in good shape to help him. (We are both in our 60's) He never told us he was lost but we eventually figured it out as we were not getting back to the marked path. We could have gotten to the path or road much sooner if only he told us he was lost. Luckily again, my phone was able to help us get to the road which took 2 hours after we took pics of the strangle fig which is a spot he has stopped at often. While lost we encountered lots of mud, swamp conditions, thorny plants, fallen trees and I got over 50 bites and many cuts and bruises. Pete got the worst of it with several bloody cuts. He suggested that the tour continue to a swimming hole and a few more nature spots and beach. So, yes on knowledge, NO on going off the path with Pete. The lunch and cookies were amazing. The other name for his company is Daintree Specialised Tours.

After driving through and round floods to Port Douglas we thought our aim of reaching Cooktown would not be reached but Pete came to the rescue and got us there even though he had to move a tree and drive across quite fast moving water. What a brilliant day we had especially as we shared the experience with an old friend from the UK (Pete's wife). Thanks Pete we enjoyed the whole day immensely.

Thank you Pete for such a great day discovering the daintree rainforest. Pete is such an amazing, passionate and knowledgeable guide with an extra-ordinary journey. He can answer any questions you might have about insects, animals, plants, trees or history. He really is keen on showing you anything interesting you might come across on the journey. To top it all up Pete‘s wife makes a delicious packed lunch and morning tea. You definitely won’t go hungry! I can only recommend this extremely personable tour to anyone also to families with small kids. Our girls 3 and 5 enjoyed every bit of the adventure and adopted Pete straight away. Pete truly is that kind of person you feel blessed to have met in your lifetime.
