Our guide Bridgette was very knowledgeable throughout our Daintree forest walk. We enjoyed a swim in the fresh water river which helped cool us off. We had hoped that more of the "specialized cultural knowledge" of the fellow doing the smoking ceremony, would have been shared with our group (we just got the Readers Digest version). Time was pressed as... More

Parts of this trip are great and parts pretty boring. My opinion is probably coloured by the fact that on the best part of the trip, the drive up through the Daintree National forest on the Bloomfield track we were the only two passengers. Our guide and driver Greg was very knowledgable about the fauna and flora and full of... More

Fantastic trip! Our guides' (Kathy) knowledge of the area was fantastic as she explained the history of the many spots of interest that we visited. Overall a very enjoyable days outing without getting boring as some other tour's we've been on previously do. Plenty of stops for photos etc. Would highly recommend doing this.

Adventure North Australia Tours appear to use relatively small vans, which limits the size of the groups and make the interaction with the guide more personal; and Greg, our guide for the day, was great. He was informative, patient and down to earth. The fact that it was only one other couple and us made the whole trip even more... More
