Early morning pickup, then a long ride to Daintree, stopping for coffee. The boat trip on the river was beautiful and the guides were good. we stopped to feed wallabies before eating steaks and salad prepared by our guides. went to a swimming hole, tasted tropical fruits and had Billy Tea. Then a short ferry ride and bus back to our pickup locations. Called Billy Tea Safaris.
Very interesting tour and great way to see the rainforest. Good comprehensive trip with the river cruise, raintree hiking and time at Cape Tribulation. Our tour guide, Neville, WA se trembly knowledgable and entertaining. He definitely made the tour more enjoyable. Great time and highly recommend this trip.
Once again the day was made special by excellent tour guide Matthew. We had a great day, saw some crocodiles and snakes and had the merest glimpse of a cassowary. Well worth doing in the small group.
Fantastic day. Loved everything about it. Great guide. Much knowledge and wonderful sense of humour. Thanks Matt.
BEST DAY EVER!! Billy Tea Rain Forest tour is the best kept secret in Australia. This was the last tour we did on the last day of our trip and it was far and above the BEST. Small, comfortable, attractive 4 wheel drive buses driven by excellent guides we LOVE Uncle Neville. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better it did. Morning stop for coffee, tea and biscuits before the river tour, walks in the rain forest, a swim in a forest pool, tropical fruit tasting with 'billy tea' prepared the traditional way over a camp fire, a walk on the beach, a ferry ride, a stop for ice cream and a beautiful drive there and back. OH...and did I mention the incredible lunch prepared for us on the grill by our guides while we fed and petted wallabies. We cannot say enough about this tour and the tour company. If you are in North Queensland it is well worth the time and money.

Great tour - our guide, Matt, was very knowledgeable. The tour had a lot of enjoyable different parts to it - thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and tasting the different tropical fruits as well as the swim in the freshwater hole.
The intimate nature of this tour combined to the unique route the tour takes combine for a recommended experience. The buses are low-capacity and the guide was friendly. We took multiple photo opportunity stops and the food provided was good and provided opportunities to try new things.

A lovely day trip to Cape Tribulation. Start with the cruise tour, it is excited to find crocodiles hiding under the water and mangroves where they came in different sizes. The naturalist is good enough to brief the group with the life of crocodiles. Afterwards, it is forest broad walk into Cape Tribulation with another naturalist Cathy. It is very amazing to have her introducing the rainforest and wildlife inhabitants. She is v knowledgeable and has great passion for nature. It is also a v memorable experience to watch her imitating a bird calling in the wild and the bird called back (responding to her call). To Chinese, it is like nature and Cathy are united in one. Isn't is amazing!
Excellent trip! Great narration by the guide. A lot packed into one day, but never felt rushed.
This was an amazing day. I liked the variety of things to do and the guide really knew is stuff so we learnt a lot about the area we were visiting. Obviously seeing Cape Tribulation was the best bit but I also really enjoyed swimming in the creek and the delicious BBQ lunch.

This was a brilliant day even though it was raining; it kept stopping each time we were about to get out. Well worth it.
Tour was great, we seen everything in one day that most would spend a week viewing. Only downfall was not very good airconditioning in the tour bus and the 1 hour trips became uncomfortable.
this tour was not described properly on the web site, and likely would not have taken it
This tour was very good.

Well run, well planned and the lunch was a pleasant surprise- did not expect such a feed. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and the scenery was fantastic. Only criticism was that the Daintree river cruise could have been rescheduled for later in the day due to an extremely high tide.

Great tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Good time to spend with family as kids will learn a lot about the rainforest. Would have been a lot better to do after the stinger season so you can swim in the sea.
Not the trips fault really as it was the wrong time of year but unfortunately we did not see any crocs which we were looking forward to. The trip also included a walk into the Rain Forest and a swim in a natural river. Access to the river was quite rough, it would have been nice to have had some warning of that.
We didnt really see much, I dont think anyone does... as the crocodiles each have a large territory there isnt much to see . We seen 1 small crocodile called "Forest Gump" he was 2.5 Meters long. He was in the water and hard to see. They give a big lunch and You get to feed and pet a couple kangroos, its a long day for what you actually see.

Friendly staff, but lots of time spent bumping around in the vehicle. Lunch was OK but nothing to rave about. To me too much driving and not enough in the outdoors.
