This would be by far the best guided tour we have ever participated in. There was so much to see and do all in the space of a day. Spectacular scenery, crocodile spotting on a beautiful river cruise and a swim in a rainforest pool, to name just some. An excellent BBQ lunch. What really made it, was our top... More

How much of the rainforest can you see in 1-day? A lot! Six crocs (including the Big Daddy) on the 45-minute river cruise; wallabies, Cape Tribulation, rainforest hike, creek swim; including meals (and dessert of mixed fruits). Very knowledgeable guides!

Last week I was fortunate enough to take a day trip to Cape Tribulation and The Daintree with Billy Tea Safaris. The tour was fantastic! We explored the Daintree Rainforest with our knowledgable guide, went croc spotting on the huge Daintree River, ate a delicious BBQ lunch with wallabies at Lync Haven Rainforest Retreat, swam in the crystal clear waters...

My partner and I really enjoyed the Billy Tea Safari. The day was jammed packed with activities and we saw so much wildlife - crocodiles, lizards and cassowaries. The tour guide Matthew was particularly good especially his broad spectrum of knowledge regarding the area, the wildlife, Indigenous people and the environments' history was fascinating. The food was very good as... More

Took their forest excursion, north of Cairns, includes river trip and jungle. Serious day long excursion. Great guide, knowledgable, friendly and a good driver. We did see one wild croc in the river, but the forest is mainly of botanical interest. Stop for lunch with tame kanaroo and wallabies. Recommended.

This tour was recommended to us by the owner of our hotel (Il Palazzo- see separate review) as she had had good feedback from all her guests who had been on it. We had one of their smaller 4 wheel drive vehicles as there were only 5 of us (6 with driver). The higher wheelbase of the vehicle did make... More

Took the full day tour from Cairns north to the Daintree River and as far as the first serious river crossing the road. The Daintree River boat tour was lovely, but since it was high tide there was virtually no wildlife except for a couple of snakes in the riverside bushes. Disappointing. A walk-and-talk along a boardwalk in part of... More

We did the Daintree, Bloomfield track etc tour. The guide was full of information - its hard to imagine anyone can keep talking for that long and without talking rubbish! Learnt heaps. Bus was comfortable. Program was jam packed with things to do, eat and see. Overall excellent value for money and great fun. Thanks Fin!

Billy Tea Safari was very convenient for us since we were staying on one of Cairn's northern beaches and they picked us up on the way to Daintree. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of cool information about the area. We start with a cruise up the Daintree river to spot crocodiles. It was a cooler... More
