The D’arcy of the Daintree 4WD tour was recommended to us by the Saltwater Apartments in Port Douglas. We were picked up from Port Douglas and wound our way north to the Wujal Wujal Waterfall. Mike lives and breathes the Daintree. You see the Daintree through the eyes of someone who loves this country and this made our trip a wonderful experience. Mike has great knowledge of this area the flora and fauna and knows the best spots to stop. He knows all the locals and this adds to the experience. The rain forest, unspoilt beaches, fan palm gallery, Bloomfield Track and the Art Centre where the indigenous artists were working were just a few highlights of the tour. Lots to eat as well, delicious ice cream, lunch at the Whet Restaurant, afternoon tea, coffee, cake and ginger biscuits at his rainforest home and if you dare you can taste an ant as well. Hope to get back and do the Cooktown tour.
Thank for a great day, John and Diane Anderson

A great morning out with a friendly and very knowledgeable guide for whom nothing is too much. Excellent value and fully recommended for anybody who wants to visit the area in a relaxed manner and yet still experience a lot.

The Darcy of Daintree 4wd tour is an absolute thrill and definitely a must do trip. If you ever find yourself up north and in the Daintree for the first time i definitely recommend this trip. Besides the fun and energetic drive with beautiful and unique sights, our guide Mike has an amazing knowledge of the of the area, so if you are lucky enough to spot a cassowary or tree kangaroo, then you will be provided with all the need to know facts. He also has great relationships with other tour operators for the barrier reef, native foods and other great experiences. Both thumbs up for this 5 star tour.

My daughter Pip and I had a personalized tour of Mike's favourite places in the Cape Trib area and up the famous Bloomfield track. His knowledge of local history, flora and fauna (and a to die for local ice-cream shop) is unparalleled, and he was a great mate to spend a couple of days with.
