We enjoyed both days of tours with Down Under Tours. The first was Cape Tribulation and The Daintree Forest. It was well organized and very enjoyable but was overshadowed by the full day Kuranda tour which we loved. The first stop, Tjapukai was extremely interesting...More

This tour clearly states its "around" 10 hours on its website and on your printouts in actuality it is 6 hours and 30 minutes. They also tell you that you can get to rainforest station and back when in actuality on rainforest stations limited shuttle...More

Hi Irish311, Thank you for your review. I am however a little confused and also very worried that you think we have lied about the times and options. We only have two tours listed on our website that include Rainforestation; both tours pick up around...More

Kuranda itself? Ok, it seems to be a bit of a tourist area. But it provided a spot to buy the souvenirs I wanted for my Australia trip. And at least they weren't terribly low-quality or high-priced like some vacations I've gone on. The railway?...More

What are the options available in the Kuranda tour? I have read about the skyrail, the train, the aqua duck. Are these all included? Are there other options too?
