What a fabulous experience! Kevin is pure joy and nonstop fun! All his personal touches made us feel like one big family. From the pick up and drop off right at our front door to the homemade (thanks to his wife) lunch off the beaten path, we felt totally cared for while learning all at the same time. My husband sat shotgun and loved the friendly banter with Kevin all day. We will look forward to a return trip!

Went on the trip with our two twenty something daughters. We all loved the trip. An excellent way to see the rainforest without being in a long line of tourists. Kevin was entertaining and very informative. A great day out.

We were looking for a rain forest experience that didn't include sitting in an air conditioned bus. Kevin was great. He drove as through some amazing country and was knowledgeable about most things. Kevin could even laugh at himself. Being farmers we asked a lot of farming questions and Kevin admitted he wasn't so knowledgeable in that area yet he still tried to take us to areas we would be interested in and spend time there. We had three teenage children with us and they also enjoyed the trip. Kevin was not in a rush and took his time, we did not feel like we were on a time schedule. The views were spectacular and it was great for my husband to be able to sit back and enjoy the ride rather than concentrate on the driving. Being in a small 4wd meant we could go places with narrower roads and Im sure it would have been amazing to take this trip during the wet season across all the stream crossings. The food provided was plentiful, fresh and delicious. Kevin also checked to make sure we made enough toilet stops to satify all the family. A great day and worth the money

We signed up for Kevin's tour on the advice of the Hilton Hotel. They described the tour as "Cairns own crocodile Dundee. Quite honestly Kevin has got the real Dundee beat by a mile. He gave us a guided tour through the rain forest for nine solid hours. Every question was answered with great humor and amazing insight. Kevin has sole access into many areas in the rain forest. For almost seven hours we never saw another human or even a sign of civilization. I recommend this tour highly. You will not be disappointed. On a side note, we witnessed his love for nature first hand when a tragic accident took place right in front of us. While on a small road, three wallabies jumped up from the bush and crossed the road suddenly

Three big cheers for Kevin Simpson! Our trip was “tree”mendous! Kevin's knowledge of the Daintree, Cairns, & Australia is vast, his wit and stories kept us laughing & interested, & his driving skills are superb. He is so welcoming he took a car load of strangers ages 4 to 59 including a teenager & at the end of the day dropped us off at our hotel door as friends. He provided a delicious homemade tea, lunch & ice cream snack. We appreciated plenty of opportunities to walk about and see, hear and touch things up close, his willingness to snap photo's of the whole family & the clean restroom facilities. We wholeheartedly recommend this tour.
