I recently enjoyed a private tour with my girlfriend through the Daintree rainforest and Cape Tribulation, led by Pete, the best tour guide you'll ever meet. The day started early beginning our journey by being picked up by Pete in his authentic all wheel drive Land Rover. During the short journey to Daintree, he kept us entertained with his knowledge of the area and it's history.
Upon arriving we stepped into the first of Pete's many "picture studios" for a scenic photograph and had a quick morning tea/coffee with cookies (which were delicious by the way). Shortly after he took us down a path through the rainforest known only to him. It was quite an "off the beaten trail" type of experience. Along the way he shared his extensive knowledge of the local plants and wildlife. We learned a great deal about falling out of the sky and still surviving, about different bush food, and hazards. Our feet got wet and muddy, but we were having a great time. He shared with us his personal experiences and his unique history. And then we drove some more fording streams in his off road vehicle until we got to "Pete's Restaurant". You can't beat this place for atmosphere as he takes you to have lunch at an unknown picturesque fresh water swimming hole in a quiet stream. An experience that must be rare because it is my understanding that much of the streams and rivers in Australia are full of crocodiles. There it is not so, and I enjoyed a dip in the refreshing waters with my girlfriend which is something I'll always remember. We finished the day on the beach at Cape Tribulation learning a lot about washing ashore and surviving and getting one more photo in the last of Pete's "studios". This is a highly unique experience which I highly recommend. Thanks, Pete, for the experiences, and for memories I'll always cherish.
