Matt was our guide and he was very informative an easy going. The 4wd buses only carry approx. 12 people so it is a good size of a group for a single guide. We saw crocodiles, a cassowary, a green tree frog and kangaroos. Lunch was great, it was much better than we had expected, we got big rump steaks... More

We had a great day with Billy Tea, our driver Matt was just great and we could not have asked for a better final full day in Australia. I would definitely recommend this as a great informative day out. The old 4X4 just added to the day, the lunch was great, must have been a 12oz steak and as much... More

Educational from start to finish including the touring vehicle! Very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. Daintree rainforest is a fascinating area to explore for its flora, fauna and wildlife. A highlight was a stop at a swimming hole, array of local fruits presented and explained plus billy tea! A unique all day excursion. Highly recommended.

We went on the day tour of the Daintree and loved every minute of it. We were a large group and from the time we were picked up our guide Neville was great, it was like we had known him for years. He was a great tour guide and really made the experience special. The boat ride on the Daintree... More

Today, our group took a trip to the Daintree rainforest with Cathy as our guide. We found ourselves in the oldest rainforest in the world, surrounded by the modt beautiful trees, plants and shrubs, accompanied by the most glorious singing of birds.

We were recommended this operator from our hotel tour guide and we were certainly happy with this company. The driver was friendly and easy to talk with. Very keen to tell us about the areas we visited and its history. There were only 12 in our tour group so it was very personalised and relaxed. Rainforest walk was interesting, the... More

We wanted to see further up the coast but didn't want to drive ourselves as one road was a bit rough. Our driver Jan (from memory) was wonderful. Friendly, helpful and informative. Included was a very good bbq lunch, a chance to swim in some rock pools, exotic fruits tasting and some great views and a walk along the beach.
