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

Booked 2 tours with Down Under. All expectations met. Staff friendly & informative from booking to dropoff. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a professional, friendly tour. Thanks to Brian for a fun, informative day on 20 February. LynFitzgerald

Our driver and guide, Terry, is great. The tour took us to Mossman Gorge, Cape Trib, Port Douglas, Daintree Rain Forest and some other stops in between. The drive does get long, but it is still worth visiting all these places. Terry has great knowledge of the area and the history of the places. We enjoyed ourselves.

Our guide Russell was the best tour guide we have ever had! Sorry that this review has taken us about 2 months to write Russell, but we still remember you from November and think that everyone should know just how awesome you are! We booked our Cape Tribulation, Port Douglas & Daintree Rainforest tour as a couple. We were with... More

Tea, coffee and water the whole day, some fresh fruits, a lunch, the snorkeling stuff including a suit - all was included in one fix price.... More

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 had a lovely journey to Kurunda and their are plenty of shops to browse in and attractions to visit. However we did have... More
