Very pleasant day spent on Green Island. Transfer to and from island very comfortable and well organised. Glass bottom boat included in price and optional snorkelling tour available for an extra $40 which I did and was well worth it!

Tjapukai is the typical tourist show you don't want waste your time. By the other hand, Kuranda is a nice shopping town. The train trip back last 1 hour, it's old and the noise of the brakes are scaring. The sky rail is better to come back

We were picked up from our hotel for this tour and driven to the station for the Scenic Rail journey. We received our itinerary off the driver with times we should adhere to for our day. We had a lovely journey to Kurunda and their are plenty of shops to browse in and attractions to visit. However we did have... More

We had one of the down under tours coaches as a courtesy bus from the skyrail to cairns CBD. The coach was lovely, Russel the bus driver was great and had a good sense of humour

We took the Daintree Rainforest and Mossman Gorge tour. Our guide, Russell, was very informative and fun as well as patient with questions. We were very appreciative of the information about Aboriginal culture that was provided by Rodney. The lunch and teas were delightful. The time in the rainforest was restorative. Only downside was not a lot of time for... More

My group of 30 pax enjoyed a really great day with a privately arranged coach ride to Kuranda with time in the village and Sky rail back down. The humour, general and botanical knowledge provided by Kelvin our on time driver was outstanding. As was his patience to cheerfully wait for members of the group who were caught up in... More

We did not enjoy this tour, it was basically a bus to tjapukai aboriginal cultural park and a ride back to Cairns from the scenic rail. And you didn't have to Que for any tickets. We had no guide other than our bus driver and everyone was left to their own devices! It should be advertised as such, bad communication!

My first question would be to ask you how was this tour sold to you by your agent? The reason I ask is that this tour is exactly as... More

We took a day trip from Cairns to Cape Tribulation, Daintree Rain Forest and Mossman Gorge. Our driver, Joanne, was great. She arrived on time at our apartment in Cairns, and provided a bit of the history of the area as we went along. She even tried to locate a cassowary for us, but no luck. Very nice lunch at... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our whirlwind trip to the Daintree Rain Forest, Mossman Gorge, Cape Tribulation and of course visit to try and see a crocodile which unfortunately we didn't. Driver Daniel was very well informed and kept us thoroughly entertained and on time. Good lunch and great fun. Thank you for a great day.
