Terrific day out! Very professional but friendly guide who gave us all the information we needed to enjoy and understand the places we visited. Tasty lunch was most appreciated. So glad I chose this small group tour.


Keith Mills

William Taylor

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour into Daintree Rain Forest.
Very well organised and fascinating and informative commentary on route.

I just recently travelled with Billy Tea and had a wonderful time exploring the magnificent Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation. The guides, Matthew and Mick were fantastic and very passionate about the area. We even saw a Cassowary and a chick, Boyd's Forest Dragon, a 4 metre crocodile and lots more. The tropical fruit, damper and billy tea was a nice touch by Emmagen Creek. Will definately recommend others to do this tour if you are thinking of travelling to the Daintree and only have a day to do it!


Frances Katsaras

Very well organised, very informative and enjoyable experience. Our driver/guide was great - he shared his extensive knowledge about the area in a very interesting narrative during the trip. Learned a lot about the Daintree trees and loved the tropical fruit and billy tea with damper at the freshwater pool. Our river trip was also interesting and our driver was most considerate and experienced. Plenty of good food at our lunch stop too.
