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

We saw a croc in the river! Not too close though. This is an awesome day to the Daintree and Cape Tribulation. Very informative was our host Kath, she had a wealth of experience that she shared with us. Thanks Kath for a wonderful day!

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. The fun starts... More

Our tour went to Daintree and Cape Tribulation. It also had a very short river cruise; the river guide was great but the tour was too short to really appreciate much. They picked us up at our hotel in a brand new vehicle. After the river cruise we went into Daintree and stopped to walk. Our guide seemed pretty knowledgeable.... More

Thankyou for taking the time to write a review for Billy Tea. The Daintree River is an amazing eco system and one could loose days exploring its complex river systems and flora and fauna. Unfortunately due to the distance between attractions in Cape Tribulation and the itinerary set to show you the best of what the region has to offer... More

This tour packs a lot into one day, and the group is pretty small (around 11 people). The tour includes a river cruise to spot crocs, and a great lunch of steak! I enjoyed my day, and the tour guide was great, but it's probably for older/quieter people as I found it a little reserved for my taste. I'm 25... More

I've traveled all over Australia but missed Daintree. I was picky about how to do it. I wanted a tour that spent time in the forest and up close and personal with the river, trees and wildlife. Billy Tea delivers just that. The all day tour is just excellent. It starts with an hour's boat ride on the Daintree River,... More

Picked up from our hotel with a great scenic tour up to the Daintree Rainforest / Cape Tribulation. A tour of the rainforest with a bit of wildlfie to see too. Down the pool for a dip if you were brave enough and some educational fruit tasting. Cape Tribulation Bay was absolutely stunning and we could have easily spent the... More

in fact the most dangerous bit was not tripping over some tree roots. This packs a huge amount into the day and by the drive back we were pretty shattered. Very good value, fun for all ages. Saw crocs and other wildlife, fed kangas and wallabies and stroked them, ate too much, tried loads of amazing tropical fruits, saw some... More

Cathy was our educational and very knowledgeable tour guide. You could feel her passion for sharing her "backyard" with us. The day started with a short riverboat tour where we saw 3 local crocs. We walked through the Daintree Rainforest and learned about the local flora, visited the kangaroo sanctuary where we were able to feed them, had a fantastic... More

In my imagination the Bloomfield should be much more than just a small pond. So I was a little disappointed when we traveled a long way to get there. The rainforest is good and the guide is informative which is nice especially to my 11 year old boy who is a nature lover. Crocodile watching tour is good although we... More
