Picked up by driver dot on time. The skyrail was great, and the staff 'loading' us into the gondolas did their best to ensure groups stayed together, and individuals/couples got their own gondola (I hate sharing!) The trip up was smooth and we were able to get off to see the rainforest and waterfalls on two occasions. Kuranda is lovely,... More

Down Under was very professional, reliable and efficient. Daniel was the driver and guide to Cape Tribulation - he was excellent - informative, entertaining and a very professional driver.

I usually don't do reviews but I couldn't let this one pass. Down under tours arranged our Kuranda Scenic rail and Kuranda Sky rail day out including coach transfers. I can't think of a way they could do it any better. Coach, booking and coordinating staff are competent, professional and charming. We'll done guys.

I went on a day trip with a small group to the Daintree National Park, including the Mossman Gorge, and Cape Tribulation in May 2015 as part of an organised tour of Australia from the UK. We saw crocodiles, snakes and a variety of birdlife on the Daintree River, and giant stick insects and spiders at Cape Tribulation. Our driver... More

We decided to do the Kuranda Scenic Rail to Kuranda with a return trip on the Sky Rail. We booked through Lake Placid Caravan Park office. Down Under Tours have a very streamlined booking process. The ticketing is printed off from point of purchase and is very self explanatory, all the info you need is laid out plain and simple.... More
