“Best think about our day in Kurunda.”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

We got to the village in the rainforest and to be perfectly honest we weren't very impressed. The shops were filled with cheap touristy things and it wasn't what we were expecting at all. Thank god we sat down to have a look on the internet for other things we could do in the area. The boat trip came up and we thought we would give it a go.
The tour guide DJ was great. He knew loads about the area and was funny and passionate. We saw turtles, fish, birds and even crocs!
It was really great, a must do if you are going to Kurunda and a bargain at only $15.

“An excellent cruise to see the wildlife”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Luckily for us we were the only people aboard the cruise and can't understand why people didn't stop to take the time to enjoy the tour. The only thing I can think is that people don't research what they want to do when they go to Kuranda. The guide was brilliant explaining about crocodiles and naming the different birds and fish found in the river. We thought it was brilliant value for money.

“Kuranda River Cruise”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Best money spent all day in Kuranda, guide was very informative and was excellent at explaining to tourists from other countries about what we were looking at. Recommend doing the trip as soon as you get to Kuranda. Plenty of photo opportunities

“The Best $15 You Will Spend in Kuranda!”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Absolutely blown away by this amazing river boat tour (08/12/13). Brian, the builder/driver/guide of the boat was a very calm, genuine, man who had an abundance of knowledge of the waters that ran underneath him and the forest that surrounded him. Not only that, he had a sense of humor, and didnt make anything seem boring or drag on. He actually took us for a 1 hour ride instead of 45 minutes which seemed to absolutely fly. It was definitely the best $15 we spent in Kuranda and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANYONE to get on board!
