After approx 2 hours in Kuranda it's time for a trip to Cairns on one of the most spectacular rail journeys in Australia. Hi my name is Brett and I'd like to tell you what an afternoon on my Kuranda and Palm Cove tour entails,Leaving at 11am means you can enjoy a quiet morning, a walk on the beach and a lie in before I pick you up and with a maximum of only 12 guests you are guaranteed personal service.

I will show you along the palm fringed Esplanade before leaving you to enjoy a 'Kuranda Rainforest Delights' cocktail overlooking the beautiful beach, take a stroll amongst the shops and galleries or wander along the jetty before returning to Port Douglas at dusk and the end of our afternoon together. << less Hi my name is Brett and I'd like to tell you about my new tasting adventure.

What a great day out - not picked up too early and returned for dinner! Brett is very attentive to his customers and had sorted evrything for us. We did have an add on fee that we choose to go into gold class on our return down on the skyrail train.
We met some great people on our trip and I would recoomend using this company!

We had a very friendly and informed driver. the day was very well organised and a lot of fun I can highly recommend. We had time to shop in the Kuranda Markets and the view from the sky car was breathtaking.

“Bretts Kuranda Half Day Tour”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

I recently had a fabulous day out on Brett's tour. He was a great a guy to have as a tour guide. He was very informative and interesting, giving me a great rap of the local area on our way to Kuranda.. . The tours it self was great.. The sky rail was amazing... so nice to be close to nature as you shimmy across the tree tops. Kuranda it self, a gorgeous little town with heaps of hippie charm. The train ride down was also fabulous with an ongoing commentary to boot. The scenery was just awesome even in the rain which followed us down the mountain. The cocktail at Palm Cove .. a lovely way to unwind.....definitely a must for anyone to do whilst in Port Douglas or Cairns. Thanks so much Brett for a great day!

“Best tour guide EVER!!!!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

My husband and I had the great pleasure of experiencing Brett's tour during our recent Port Douglas stay for our 10th wedding anniversary. Not only was Brett extremely friendly, helpful and incredibly witty, he has an unsurpassed knowledge of the area and is an absolute pleasure to be around. I cannot stress the fantastic value of experiencing this tour. We saw more and learnt more from Brett's half day tour than we could have done by ourselves over our whole 5 day stay. We cannot thank Brett enough. It was by far my favorite memory of our visit to Port Douglas. We will certainly be returning in the future and will definitely be singing Brett's accolades to all our friends and family. Do yourselves a favour people and book with Brett. You won't be disappointed!!!
