We booked the Billy Tea Safari to Daintree and Cape Tribulation after researching many of the competitors. We made the right choice. Pick up was on time from our apartment and the guide for the day was Neville, who also doubled up as Chef and resident comedian. There were just 10 people on the vehicle and we joined up with...

This is by far the best way to experience the Daintree National Park and Cape Tribulation. We nearly opted to jump in the car and drive ourselves around, but chose Billy Tea Safaris instead. The tour includes a river cruise. Unfortunately the crocodiles weren't to be spotted, however we did learn a lot about how they live and behave, Once... More

Entertaining tour all throughout. Fin our tour guide was very amusing. You get to see beautiful sights and appreciate Mother Nature up close. It would have been perfect if you could go deeper into the rainforest but unfortunately a lot of it is on private land and sanctuary. Great value for money.

Billy Tea Safari was a great way to see the area north of Cairns up to Cape Tribulation. We were staying in Cairns for the last day of a holiday after a wonderful week on Ftizroy Island resort (highly recommend it) and wanted to go up to Cape Tribulation and see the Daintree River and forest area and Billy Tea...

We took the Billy Tea Daintree Rainforest Cape Tribulation 4WD day tour while visiting Port Douglas. It was definitely an all-day adventure that started with our hotel pick-up in a van for about 10-12 of us. They started with a quick break for us to pick up tea/coffee and use the facilities before we began our crocodile cruise. Before the... More

Well planned day that packs a huge amount in without feeling rushed. Time at each location is limited however the relaxed approach of the the guide, Uncle Nev, on visit meant the day was smooth and feature packed with great local knowledge and sights. Recommended

Although we weren't lucky enough to see a croc on the river or a Cassowary in the wild, this was a great tour. Our driver, Fin, was very knowledgeable and answered all questions we had about the rainforest and animals. Really enjoyed meeting the kangaroos and wallaby up close, lunch was great and the swim topped the day off. Highly... More

Hi Scott, Thanks very much for your review. Oh it is a shame neither of the elusive wildlife was out to play on your tour date. Unfortunately its like the weather you just cant control it! We are very pleased you enjoyed your day out regardless and the swim is also my favourite part. Thanks for choosing Billy Tea Safaris. More

picked up by Uncle Nev, in their custom 4wd bus, essential for later parts of the trip. As we made our way from port Douglas to the daintree river we were lectured on what we were seeing and the history of the region, making what could have been a dull drive through farm land much more interesting.
