I did the Kuranda tour with this company. It consisted of the scenic train ride up and the cable car back down. And the rest of day I was left to my own devices. Firstly, I called up to confirm my attendance and was given the pick up time of 9:00am. Then I got a note from the hostel saying... More

Irene and i give Roy 5 stars as a great and frieldky tour leader. We highly recommend a visit to the Skyrail and experience the freshness in the air. Kuranda is a fantastic place to look around . Good places to eat and good quality shops.

This was a very full day from Cairns. Our driver Rory was friendly, helpful, and provided some interesting information along the way. Our first stop at the Wildlife Habitat was wonderful. There were lots of wallabies and small kangaroos that you could get close to and feed, an upclose look at Cassowary birds (which Rory had some stories about why... More

The ONLY thing I loved about this tour was the Port Douglas Raintree Wildlife Sanctuary and getting to hold a koala bear... The rest of the tour was boring and TOO much time was spent on the bus; this was like a 12 hour tour and just painful since I couldn't get off. This was supposed to be small personalized... More

In short, yes I was picked up on time etc but the activities I completed were not great. The animal sanctuary was pretty average, you can get the usual staged pictures with some animals (for a price of course) The jungle tour / walk took less than 12 minutes, not that I was too bothered as I had 2 whole...

The whole tour was such a great experience. Such an incredible opportunity to throw a boomerang, cuddle koalas and kangaroos and experience some true Indigenous Culture at the Rain Forest station. The food was also amazing and came in the plenty, the buffet got constantly refilled and went down nicely! Kuranda was also incredible. The Butterfly Sanctuary was simply beautiful!... More

From cairns to kauranda on a beautiful old train. As you travel along the tracks up into the mountians. You are told of the hardship and history of building a rail line high up into the mountains on high edges and slopes. All done with pick and shovel. Lovely old train with decor of its era. Stopping at a look... More

What a fantastic day from start to finish, so well organised and packed full with exciting things to do! Our driver/guide was Adrian and he was so cheerful and informative.
