We had a super day with Juan, touring the Daintree rain forest and a number of other places, including a suprise stop at his home where we met his brother, and enjoyed some snacks. We were picked up and dropped off in Port Douglas. Juan had plenty of water in the vehicle. We learned a great deal from him and... More

A recommendation from our tour agent, Aspire Down Under, was to take a personalized small tour with a local Kuku Yalanji Aborigininal tour guide. So four of us were picked up in Port Douglas for a private tour. Hardy was great, we learned history, viewed spectacular country, threw spears, walked in muck to look for sea creatures and cooled off... More

My two daughters and I spent a full day with Juan Walker and his cousin, Hardy. They picked us up at our apartment in Port Douglas, started us off with the best coffee in town and helped us understand more of the Aboriginal experience through the experience of his own family. We came to appreciate the intimate ties to nature... More

He taught us all about the aboriginal history and culture in Australia. We visited the small town of Daintree and saw the Daintree River, then we headed down... More

Our day with Juan on Walkabout was exactly what we had hoped for. We learned about Aboriginal culture and the history of the land, plants, and animals from an indigenous guide in a small group setting. We hunted for pippis barefoot in the sea, practiced “spear hunting”, and enjoyed lunch with homemade damper in our guide’s family home. And of... More

We had two weeks of amazing adventures with my family across Australia - hands down this was THE best day out of all of them! Juan is wonderful, funny, kind, sweet, informative, fun, adventurous and such a genuine nice guy. My family learned so much as we drove with him, walked with him, and swam with him.

This is one of the best Tours we have ever taken -and we have taken quite a few all over the world. Our guide, Juan, was quite knowledgeable and personable, and gave us an insight into his Aboriginal culture that you can't get from a museum or literature. He allowed us into his home, to have lunch in his parents'... More
