We spent our last day in FNQ on a tour of The Daintree area and were able to tick an item off "The bucket list". Matthew our guide for the day, was informative and hilarious! The 4 wheel drive truck was quite a different way to travel but comfortable and air conditioned! Thanks for a terrific day out.

We did the Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation tour in January while we were there. The tour was good we saw a lot. Best part was petting the Kangaroo, I had never touched one before. Our guide was good and knowledgeable, the bus was comfortable, the steak they fixed us was great. It was a long day and we did enjoy... More

Came to Cairns to see the Great Barrier Reef but Mother Nature had other plans. We changed our trip to include a Billy Teas rain forest trip. We had such a great time on this adventure. We knew we were coming to Cairns in the wet season so a ran forest trip seemed planned. We saw crocs, birds, wallabies, snakes... More

The ride will make you nauseous. If you don't get nauseous from the twists and turns the pot holes and dirt rut roads will kill you. The boat ride was hot and we saw very little. Swimming in the creek was cool and refreshing. That and the steak lunch were the only good parts of the day.

While staying in Palm Cove, we really wanted to experience the Daintree Rainforest. This was the best tour, without a doubt! We were very lucky with the weather, since we toured in January, the wet season, you never know...but the sun was out the entire time! The bus picked us up right outside our hotel, which was great!

Hi and thank you for taking the time to write a review for Billy Tea Safaris. We are so pleased the wildlife was out showing off for you. The Cassowary is an amazing bird and as it is endangered it can be difficult to spot. Once again thank you for choosing Billy Tea Safaris and we wish you a safe... More

I dare say that a guided tour like this depends on the guide you're with, but Matthew was the most entertaining and informative guide I've encountered. Whether it was WWII history, Gondwana pre-history, tea brewing, the name of Nelson's botanist or anything in between, our man had it covered. That and jokes - he certainly has his schtick and timing... More

We took the tour up through the Daintree and Cape Tribulation. The guide had great knowledge of the area and was willing to share all that he knew. Very friendly as well. While the drive was long the bus was comfortable. Favourite part of the tour was eating the ice cream on the way home.

Really nice tour of Daintree Forest and Cape Tribulation. Unfortunately we didn't spot the Cassowary and no crocodiles either, but it was still very good. You really get a sense of the area and the forest is stunning. The food is great!

Hi Valentina, Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. We are very pleased you enjoyed your day out. It is unfortunate the wildlife were quiet on your day of travel. That's the element of surprise and unpredictability of any nature/wildlife tour. We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels. More

We did 2 tours with Billy Tea - the 1 day Chillagoe Caves/Outback and the 1 day Daintree/Cape Tribulation/Bloomfield Track. They were both very different, unique tours which were amazing and insightful. They cram a lot in - from what you see, how far you travel, what you do at each stop and what you hear from the tour guides... More
