My friend and I went on the Daintree Adventure Day tour and could not be more delighted with our experience. Backcountry Bliss was very accommodating – we chatted them up on their website asking to be picked up and dropped off from our accommodation in Palm Cove, and they got that taken care for us immediately. Jason, who drove us to and from Palm Cove, was very positive, conversational, and receptive to us (taking us to a nearby suburb to look for wallabies, and even stopping on the side of the road as we were making a phone call to avoid bad reception!).

Glenn, our main tour guide, was excellent. We had a small group (which was perfect) and kept the atmosphere friendly and interactive. On the drive, he demonstrated an incredible knowledge of the region, kept us comfortable with snacks, towels, bug spray, etc., and really tried to get to know us. This tour is not one of those "sit on a big bus with 30 other people and get chauffered place to place" kind of tours. We all got to know each other, and the drives to different locations which just as enjoyable as the locations themselves.

We felt like we got the most out of the Daintree Rainforest with this all-day tour, as we experienced it from the knowledge side (Glenn's wonderful commentary and bush walk), activity side (with the ziplining), observing side (wildlife cruise), relax side (refreshing, beautiful swim in a nearby watering hole after lunch!), and everything in between (delicious ice cream, short stops at lookouts).

I would recommend bug spray (though Glenn has tons) and some PawPaw ointment, because I definitely got bitten alive at the rainforest. A go-pro is recommended at the ziplining location! You can also take out your phone and do some amazing pics/videos while ziplining, the people working the zipline can slow the zipline down for you and they are very nice as well.

Overall amazing experience, truly a highlight for us while we were on break in the area.

Hi there Rong, great to hear from you! Thanks so much for taking the time to write and share your experience with us! And we're likewise appreciative of such a wonderful, detailed review, as we really do strive to deliver a personalised adventure. We find that by keeping groups small, we're able to provide a more one-on-one experience, while staying away from big crowds. Glenn loved showing you guys our neck of the woods, and though our Daintree Adventure Day does entail thrills like Jungle Surfing through the tree-tops, and swimming in crystal rainforest waterholes, it's really people like you who make the day. The whole team at Back Country Bliss sincerely hope you're able to visit the region again someday to try another of our adventures :)

My partner and I had such an amazing day in the Daintree Rainforest.
Glen our tour guide was fantastic and with a small group of 8, it was personal, informative, fun and relaxing. We had a lot of fun Jungle Surfing and loved the swim in the the fresh waterhole after lunch.
The beauty of nature at it's best! Anybody going to Port Douglas should definitely not miss this! We loved it!

My girlfriend and I had a great day out with Back Country Bliss. Josh our guide was friendly passionate and extremely knowledgeable. We had a great small group that mixed well.

Highlights were the swim in Coopers creek, getting up close and personal with a cassowary, homemade ice cream and of course all of the great information from our guide Josh.

I highly recommend Back Country Bliss for a great day out from Port Douglas.

We have been traveling in Australia for over 2 months and have been on many tours. This one ranked up near the top of the tours we have been on. The small size of the group (10 people), and our wonderful tour guide Glenn helped make this tour informative and personal. Not only did it meet our expectations, our interaction with Glenn created a memory that we will long remember. He is knowledgeable, personable, considerate of the group, and engaging. He did his best to create an environment that brought the group together, and he checked in with the group often to make sure that everyone's needs were being met. Daintree is a special place and this was a special tour.
