Owner description: Daintree Wonder Tours is passionate about providing you with the best rainforest experience possible! We are 100% locally owned and operated and specialise in small group tours in the Daintree National Park (including the Mossman Gorge, Daintree River and Cape Tribulation). The tour starts with a breathtaking walk around the Mossman Gorge and includes other iconic destinations such as Cape Tribulation Beach, the Daintree cable ferry crossing and Alexandrea Lookout . A cooked lunch in a beautiful rainforest setting precedes a swim in pristine freshwater pools of Cooper Creek. We finish our day with an awesome cruise along the Daintree River in search of the elusive estuarine crocodile. Your owner/operators are dedicated to conservation and wildlife care and look forward to sharing the magic of the Daintree with you.

We enjoyed a private charter with Dave and Daintree Wonder Tours. The whole experience was a pleasure. When we booked we told them about our daughter's severe food allergy, and they accommodated for it to make sure she didn't miss out on anything. They were also able to cater the day around our schedule and abilities. Dave passion and knowledge for the area is infectious: he quickly had the girls on the lookout for the rare and mysterious Cassowary. His understanding of the area also meant we were able to visit places at times when they weren't busy and at their most optimum: mossman gorge and crocodile river tours in particular. Lunch was held in a lovely restaurant which served very fresh barramundi, followed by the opportunity for a refreshing swim. The kids loved the bushwalk through the daintree forest the most and all the great info they learned along the way. And yes, we did get to see a Cassowary too.

Dave does an excellent job showing the highlights of the Daintree. His morning tea was very good (ask about a "Tim-tam slam"). We were fortunate to see a good number of Cassowaries and a very large crocodile. Dave is informative and entertaining. We picked this tour based on other reviews and are very satisfied with our choice. On top of Dave's passion for the environment, he and his girlfriend rescue and help raise baby kangaroos. You have to like a guy (and gal) like that! Highly recommend this tour!

Dave took us out on an amazing tour which including numerous stops and we covered a lot of miles. This was one of the only tours which included small numbers visiting numerous natural attractions in the one day including a great lunch in the price. As soon as we were collected from our resort I knew I had made the right choice. Dave himself is very personable, relaxed, funny, only takes a maximum of ten guests out at a time and as he picks up each person/group, he introduces everybody on the mini bus by name, remembers your name for the whole day, but is providing a tour which is not only outstanding value for money, but is a small personalized tour and he truly gets into the day with his great energy, funny wit and is so happy to share his wealth of knowledge about the area. This is only a newer company and a small business owner, please book this great tour and support this man. I studied numerous tours before booking this one and I was completely on the mark with my choice 100%. Includes Mossman Gorge, Daintree National Park, Cape Trib, a great lunch and morning tea, swimming time, Daintree Boat Cruise, many other stops along the way including the Daintree Ice Cream Co. A long day but definately worth it. Thanks Dave :)

This tour is amazing and a must for anyone visiting far north Queensland! The Daintree rainforest, Cape Tribulation and Mossman gorge are beautiful. Dave, the very knowledgable and very entertaining tour guide, makes the day even more special especially with his witty humour and passion for his job. A well organized tour providing the best of far north Queensland's sights. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Looking forward to taking friends and family next time I'm in Port Douglas.

On a long weekend in Port Douglas we took a day tour of the Rainforest with Dave.
It was a truly amazing day, spent exploring a truly wonderful corner of Australia.
Dave is great, taking the group to many of the top spots but somehow seeming to miss the crowds.
Day includes a couple of walk tours in the rainforest and mangroves, Cape Tribulation and a croc cruise down the Daintree River. A very nice lunch and side stop for ice cream provided some interesting flavour :)
A long day passed all to quickly.
This tour was recommended to us as one of the best and I can fully understand why.
We were lucky to have a small group on the day, just four of us and this helped make the day even better. Thanks Dave so much for a trip never to be forgotten.
