Explaination was great but lot of time on the drive only

It was from Billy Tea Safaris company. Vegetarian food option can be improved. The Rainforest explanation was great & instead of ice cream pick, we could have gone for some rainforest activity or BBQ/famous Billy Tea. Andriyas was good at his skills.

The Daintree Rainforest tour is so beautiful and the tour guide Yannick was very helpful and he explained everything so well and he look after us all the time, if you like nature this is a tour to do.

I strongly recommend to do a tour with this company. The tour guide knows so much about Daintree rainforest and he was very friendly and helpful, the ice cream was delicious, I tried chai with chocolate chips and coffee with cardamom and it was so good. If you like nature, and long day trips this tour is great.

Excellent day out, would highly recommend, great for families.

Pick up was on time and very easy for us as a traveling family of 5. Our guide, Nev, was excellent and pointed out various historic landmarks and pieces of information on the drive. We stopped regularly at points of interest and for beautiful scenery and photo opportunities. The River Cruise was really interesting, our guide on the river was really knowledgeable and we saw a few crocs, plus other wildlife. The rainforest walk on the boardwalk was easy and Nev provided lots of information about all the different parts of the rainforest. Cape Tribulation lunch was delicious and the beach was beautiful, again lots of opportunities for photos. The Bloomfield Track and swimming at the creek was delightful. The kids enjoyed the cool water after a warm day. Our final stop at Daintree Ice Cream was a nice way to end the day before heading back into Cairns. The whole tour was great! We saw lots of animals including crocodiles, a cassowary, white heron, kingfisher, lace monitor, peppermint stick insects, elysium butterflies, crabs, crayfish and even a little rescue wallaby. Although it was a big day, our kids - 12, 11 and 10, enjoyed it all. Would highly recommend!
