Sauce is the man. You couldn't wish for a better tour guide at all. He knows all the animals on a first name basis, can show you the bests spots and knows the background facts to make the trip really educational. Add to that the lush wildlife of Daintree with all kinds of birds and reptiles and you've got a... More

Returned to this trip again after 5 years because it was so fantastic the first time around. We were not dissapointed. Unlike many of the other river trips, this one allows you the time to really focus on and learn to understand the river and it's environs at a micro level. While you're still likely to see a croc, the... More

We loved every minute of this trip and saw all the species that we expected to see. Wonderful birds including 4 species of kingfisher as well as close up views of both male and female Saltwater Crocodile. Sauce was and excellent guide and knew much about every species we saw including the plants and history of the area. I would... More

Superb trips up and down the river. I was so impressed, I took a second trip. Amazing sights, so many birds and even a croc sleeping off its recent meal on the banks. Ian’s knowledge of local fauna and flora is awesome. His anecdotes make for a very interesting and humorous trip. I will certainly come again.

Both my wife and I are keen birders and Sauce was recommended by good friends of ours, and we really weren't disappointed. Sauce has great patience, calm temperament and a vast knowledge of birds, as well as other flora and fauna. We were lucky enough to have the whole boat to ourselves, and Sauce as our private guide. After 4... More

We took the morning cruise with Ian. It started out as a foggy cold morning, but luckily the fog lifted quickly as we got on the water. We saw a large variety of birdlife, snakes and some crocodiles, many of which would have been impossible to spot without Ian's sharp eye and familiarity with the area. Definitely worth getting up...

I managed to get an afternoon run with Ian (Sauce) Worcester on the Daintree. It was an eye-opener and I also captured some great photos... Ian knows the area covered extremely well and can ferret out hard to spot birds and other creatures. We saw a juvenile Frogmouth in amongst dense foliage after Ian pointed it out. So you will...

I could not recommend Ian's early morning Bird watching cruise highly enough. You will see so many species of beautiful birds. As the sun slowly makes its way into the sky, the birds sing and frolic in the glory of the morning. Ian has an amazing intuitive knowing of which birds will be found where. Through years of observation this... More

Nooope, but luckily for us you had your pointer to show us the animals. You are a magician in spotting! Keep up the good work, i'll defenitly recommand you. Sincerely, Tess... More

Our trip on the Daintree River with Ian "Sauce" Worcester was so amazing we did it twice. This was one of the highlights of our first visit to Australia. We saw 4 Great Billed Herons, 4 or 5 Little Kingfishers, Frogmouths and many other riverside birds. He also introduced us to a monster Saltie and a Green Tree Snake. Best... More
