'Big Day Out' - Two Cruise Special

"I was very impressed that Murray was not only a professional nature guide, able to pin-point birds and identify them, but also able to entertain my children giving appropriate information in Japanese. I'd like to highly recommend Murray to my friends when they come to the Cairns area."
Vance MacCracken, USA, March 2012

'Big Day Out' - Cruise & Day Tour

"Our day out with Murray was the highlight of our month Down Under.  Murray is expert at identification, and he knew where to take us for productive birding.  Not only is Murray a wonderful guide in the field, but he also has a thoughtful approach to conservation issues.  When we return, we will certainly go out again with the Daintree Boatman".
Marijanne Johansson, Sweden, Dec 2011

7 Day Birdwatching Road-tour

"Thank you for our great trip together to the Iron Range. And I need to include my wife here, both she and I felt as if we were on a trip with a friend and not a tour guide. I donít want to make too many words, but we have enjoyed every minute of a really outstanding experience!"

Andrew Digby, New Zealand, Sept 2011
