The train ride was very nice and the skyrail was excellent. Each person on the train may not have the same 'tour' for that day so here are some comments on this specific tour. When you get off the train, the shuttlebus to the Wildlife Park is outside the Butterfly Sanctuary, which is up the hill past the village and... More

I had 2 tours arranged with this company. There was a mix up when the driver didn't have my pick up on his schedule. Quickly, activities were re arranged, including contacting another mop any to see if they could alter the day I was spending with them I ended up having a great day with my own private transfers between...

We took the day tour few weeks ago and has a wonderful time! They are perfect in term of safety and making a really really got atmosphere. The spots they took you at are beautiful and you really have plenty of time (almost up to 2 hours at both locations) to snorkel around. Elvis is definitely making the return trip... More

We were picked up at hotel and 8.35 promptly, and pickup more passengers, arrived at train station in about 25 minutes from pickup. The driver gave excellent instructions on the procedures to board train, visit Kuranda and sky rail. The train was fun and had great scenic views. We had 3 hours in Kuranda which gave us time to shop,... More

Down Under Cruise dive and snorkel tours is a great way to spend a day on the Great barrier Reef. They take the boat out to two different locations: one in the morning and another after the buffet lunch they serve on board the boat. Both locations were great and the staff is very friendly and helpful for people new... More

Though it's not a tour per se, my day including the Scenic Railway, Kuranda and the Skyrail was booked through Down Unders tours. And it was a big mistake. The Scenic Railway departs at roughly 8:30 from Cairns Central and before 9 from Freshwater. Our driver picked us up at 7 am, driving around Cairns for an hour for the... More

Hi Josephine, Thank you for your review. I am sorry you did not enjoy your day with us. Can I please address some of the concerns raised in your review. You are quite correct when you say that Cairns Central is close to a lot of Accommodation in the city. Not 5 minutes walk, but yes it is relatively central.... More

This was a great way to experience Cape Tribulation, the Daintree and Mossman Gorge when we had a limited amount of time. We were picked up in Cairns and had a very comfortable ride in the mini bus (yay for airconditioning!). We saw lots of the coastline, and had a walk in Mossman Gorge and along the beach at Cape...

The day was well-organized and semi-personalized with a schedule to meet the next activity. I'd have preferred taking the scenic railroad from the Cairns city station instead of a 35 minute coach ride, but the whole day was memorable, particularly the skyrail back.

My husband and I only had two days in Cairns. We spent our first day on the great barrier reef, and our second journeying on a small coach with Jason from Down Under Tours. Jason, our fantastic guide, made this very long day tour well worth the time spent. We were picked up from our hotel-right on time- at 7:20... More
