This was so much fun. Our tour guides taught us so much in a fun way. I was bitten head to toe though out the trip in Auz by mosquitoes. When we went for a swim in the special pool, Dean, one of our guides saw the extent of the damage to my body. He then ground up some leaves, mixed it with water and proceeded to let me wash myself in it. The plant mixture makes an antiseptic so that I would not get ill from the bites and it stopped the itching. Next day the bites were nearly gone! We ate freshly cooked crab caught by the group and cooked by our guide and hunter "Link" he also gave us a didgeridoo lesson and interesting facts on his tribe. It was great to be on a tour where you could get down and dirty with the locals. We were allowed to keep the paintings that we did with our art lesson and they now grace our wall. This is a kicked back, must do.

This was an amazing tour. We had Darryl as our tour guide--can not imagine anyone better. He was raised with the aboriginal culture and knew both our artist and our spear fisherman personally. The tour through the rainforest was fascinating,Link taught us about medicinal plants

Spear-hunting was really great! Though we did not get to catch anything, Brandon did catch a reef shark and a stingray. It was amazing to see his fishing skills, and how easy he made it look! Going through the mangroves, we picked up some shells and he showed us which ones were good to eat or not. It was really interesting to learn about traditional hunting and way of live. Definitely recommended! You'll get wet but you'll love it!

The mangrove walk was so much fun, everyone ended up covered in mud from slipping and sliding over the tree roots. The brothers were funny and welcoming and it was interesting to see how they have combined modern life with the old traditions of the tribe. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat, but make sure I wear shorts next time not a sundress!

Enjoyed this tour a lot and would recommend it to anyone going to Cairns. We went to places the other big tours don't go so we hardly saw another person all day. Walking in the mangroves was messy but lots of fun. The swim at the falls at the end was a great way to cool down and relax at the end of the day.

This tour is a definite. Whether you are an Aussie who thinks they know a thing or two about the Aboriginal culture or whether you are a full blood tourist. My tour favoutrite parts of the tour where the art class at Janbal and the hunting with Brandon (I do hope I spelt this right) in the mangroves. The things I learnt made me realize just how different each group of Aboriginals are from each other.
Just be careful that you read and ring to confirm the itinerary. What I read on the net via viator and what actually happened were a little different but still a great and worth while day.

Very nice experience. We caught mud crabs and found mussels - we had a lot of fun in the mud. Beeing in the art galery and painting by our own was good as well. I would have love to spent a bit more time with the Aboriginals.

I found the Aboriginal Daintree Rainforest Tour to be very interesting. The guide was terrific - it was just a pity that us 'city slickers' didn't do much crab catching. I began to wonder if they just waited for the guide!! We would have starved if it had been up to us!! The tasting of our catch was great - and the damper and muffins were the best. I will be trying damper and golden syrup from now on! Was all very worthwhile.
