WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY ABOUT DAINTREE SAFARIS TOURS
My husband and I were fortunate to spend the day touring this magical place with guide Nicholas. Nicholas experience, kindness, passion and knowledge made this the most memorable day of our trip. We highly recommend this tour to anyone. Morning tea, lunch and the daintree icecream were all as wonderful as were the settings. The boat trip was fantastic and we saw a huge male croc called scar face and a few juveniles.
Thanks again Nicholas for a fantastic day.
As per other reviews, Nicholas is a walking encyclopedia! One of the trip highlights was seeing a cassowary with three chicks... very special. The secluded rock pool was awesome to swim in. I was reluctant at first but was so pleased that I had a swim.
My husband and I highly recommend this tour... forget about the larger tour groups... Everything from the home made muffins to fresh fruit for morning tea and lunch was fantastic. A 'must do' tour.
Nick was a encyclopaedia of information on all of the flora and fauna of the daintree and surrounds. We enjoyed a beautiful morning tea at cape tribulation (with the BEST apple muffins) and a fantastic lunch at a tea house (the most amazing barramundi was served there).
We were so lucky to see a male cassowary and his three chicks. It was an amazing day with so many inclusions for the price and time spent.
The restaurant food was just perfect with a choice of fish or steak as the main wow dishes with some other choices.
The tours are limited to six people max. Watch out for the wait a while! Nicholas will explain.
Some highlights include seeing some local reptiles we’d never have seen on our own, an amazing swimming hole we’d never have found and seeing the effect aboriginal tool making had on the root systems of the rainforest in places. Something we would never have worked out for ourselves.
Lunch was amazing, the croc cruise provided plenty of opportunities for seeing crocs in the wild and the vehicle is very comfortable. Thanks again!
We too, saw the beauty in the rainforest and learnt so many new and interesting quirks about the Daintree. Not only this, but also where the only two world heritage sites (the coral sea and the Daintree rainforest) meet - it was magnificent.
We can’t thank you enough for such a genuine and intimate experience. It will be one we forever remember and cherish.
We swam in a stream that was definitely invigorating and learnt about “wait a while” along with so many other things in the Daintree.
Nick is a walking wikipedia, google, and almost David Attenborough rolled into one, with a touch of humour. Also learnt about native fruits at our lunch and the difference between farm and wild barramundi. Great value, a memorable experience.
