“Great rainforest education”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a day spent with Kevin Simpson on his eco safari. The trip through the rain forest adjacent to Cairns was very enlightening as Kevin has a wealth of knowledge which he conveys clearly and entertainingly along with a good dash of Aussie humour. The afternoon section where the Clohesy River is forded several times, adds some extra excitement to the proceedings. There were four Chinese tourists in our party and Kevin went out of his way to ensure maximum sightings of kangaroos and other wildlife much to the delight of us all. Highly recommended.

“Brilliant day out with a great guide.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Excellent day out started off with our on time pick-up by Kevin our guide for the day. Kevin's great fun, really interesting and very knowledgeable. You can ask him practically anything (except winning Lotto numbers) and he'll be able to give you a good answer. The safari covers quite a bit of ground but there's plenty of comfort breaks and a good lunch. Would recommend this tour for anyone of any age who's interested in the natural history of the rainforest and surrounding flood planes. Thanks Kevin!

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Our family of four recently joined Kevin on a wilderness Eco Safari adventure. We loved being able to go off road and see some areas of the rainforest that are rarely visited. Our kids enjoyed playing in the streams and rivers and we all felt like we learned so much about the area. Kevin is very funny and engaging, which was great for our 12 and 14 year olds kids. The lunch was delicious and we enjoyed having a laid back day away from the crowds. Definitely recommend.

“Amazing Day!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

We (my husband and I) recently spent the day with Kevin on his safari tour and it was a truly memorable day. He took us through the beautiful rain forest in his awesome 4x4. We had a lovely cup of tea & biscuits near a river, saw many beautiful trees, insects, wildlife, had a wonderful lunch, learned so many interesting facts, and overall just spent a fantastic day with a small group of people. He even treats you to some unforgettable ice cream at the end of the day! Kevin makes you feel very welcome and comfortable, and his great sense of humor makes for a truly entertaining day and you really get to experience the Aussie way. We would definitely recommend this experience to others!!

“Kevin Simpson, owner/driver/guide, is outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

March 10, 2014, just completed his 10 hour tour of the rain-forest. Kevin really knows the territory. Let him guide you to the local rain-forest near Cairns rather than Daintree, which is two hours wasted just getting there and back. His back road selection is superb, His Toyota 4-wheel drive will get you in places, and out, that no one else is likely to see, or know about. The food is good, and the good humor will get you through the day without a dull moment.
Kevin took care of me, with my newly broken collar-bone, in 4-star fashion.
