Just returned from Brett's trip to Kuranda - what an excellent experience! Brett collected us from our hotel and we joined a small friendly group in the bus . Brett gave us a running commentary all the way to the railway - informative and amusing. The cable car is fabulous and the hippy village unique. The return journey on the train was wonderful. Brett picked us up at the station and the finishing touch was a cocktail at Palm Cove as the sun was setting. Highly recommended.

My husband, myself & our 2 1/2 year old daughter embarked on Bretts half day Kuranda tour.
Brett was so friendly and cheerful from the minute we met him and we were pleased to find out that there were only 6 of us on the tour.
Brett is a wealth of knowledge and provides lots of commentry along the way about the sites and scenery but always keeping it lighthearted and funny.
The sky rail was great fun and we hopped off a couple of times along the way to go for a short walk and see the views which are amazing. Once at the top Brett collected us and drove us a couple of kms down the road to Kuranda a quaint hippy like township with markets and shops. After that we headed for the railway to hop on the scenic train to Cairns. Brett offered us the opportunity to upgrade our standard tickets to gold class for an extra fee which provided us with lovely comfortable chair, drinks on demand and a cheese, dried fruit and biscuit platter which made the trip even more pleasant!
Once in Cairns, Brett picked us up and drove us to Palm Cove where we all go out (including Brett) and enjoyed a cocktail at one of the pubs.
It was a sensational day with a lovely group of people.
Thanks Brett! We would highly recommend your to any of our friends/family.

Brett was very welcoming and we had a great group of people, really enjoyed the sky rail and train. Kuranda markets were very spread out but were nice to look around, delicious lunch at the kuranda cafe. Pine cove was a nice end to the day, enjoying a cocktail by the sea. Brett was very informative about local area and would highly recommend this tour:-)

Brett sure knows how to make people laugh!!! A skill that helps you get through the day... We like the small group and the fact that we didnt have to get up at 6am (this trip starts at 11, enuf time for the beach, a swim or a jog, and a nice brekkie). You have plenty of time to enjoy the skyrail, train trip and explore kuranda. And a quick stop at a cafe in Palm Cove for a sunset drink (at your expense, discounted rate) at the end of the trip... Half day is enough indeed ;-)
