        Pay By Card - Cash does not exist??
        We write about the cafeteria at the base of the sky rail - very hot day - an icecream was what we wanted - made our selection - handed over the cash and the response was a big NO !!! Pay by card only or put it back in the freezer. So we had to!! Has our way of life stooped to such a disgusting level?? Shape up Sky rail ~ surely you can do better than that?

        Amazing day
        Was collected by Beaches Meet & Greet for transfer on time from my hotel. I never usually give 5 stars but I had an amazing day saw all I wanted to see arrived about 1.30 pm in time to get a picture with a koala before the snake show then a quick wander round before the crocodile Attack show then a cruise round the lagoon to see how croc feed. A totally amazing afternoon would recommend

        Best tour company in Cairns!
        My teenage son and I went on the Cape Tribulation tour on Tuesday 23 January 2024. It was fantastic! Our tour leader and guide, Scott, was friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was well organised, we visited Mossman Gorge, walked through the Daintree tropical rainforest, saw a crocodile on the Daintree river cruise, enjoyed delicious barramundi and locally made ice cream for lunch, enjoyed time at Thornton beach, and even stopped on the Captain Cook Hwy to see wild wallabies. Overall, a great tour - highly recommend! Thank you Scott and Down Under Tours :)

        Beautiful trip over rainforest. Visit Kuranda
        Excellent trip over rainforest. Got a real appreciation of the environment. Sadly the return train wasn’t working following cyclone damage. Spent a few hours in Kuranda. The Skyrail had excellent staff and excellent facilities. Good value.

        A must do while in Cairns
        Great day out while in Cairns. The rainforest is massive and breathtaking views from the sky rails . Informative talk and small boardwalk tour by a guide was well worth doing after you get off the first gondola . Plenty of places to eat at the Kuranda markets at the top . Train wasn’t working cause tracks washed out with cyclone late December so back down in the gondola. Well worth doing for everyone.

        We went on a great tour to the daintree rainforrest, river and cape tripulation. We saw a cassowary, crocodiles and the wait-a-while-lead that our awesome guide Scott told us about. Scott was a blessing to have with us as he had many stories about the place, which gave us a deeper appreciation of the forrest roads when went on

        Michael was a great guide, was very friendly and had great knowledge of the area and its history. If looking for a tour of Karanda definitely book the shuttle tour with Michael. Very quick and excellent communication about bus pickups, tickets and times. Would do this again.

        An Interesting Day
        The Sky Rail was great and each stop had interesting information. Kuranda itself was a bit disappointing as although it offered a variety of refreshments other shops were just boring tourist stuff. A bit sad. However the train trip back was excellent with a great commentary for all English speaking visitors. A treat although expensive for families.

        Excellent trip with a knowledgable guide
        Thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Our guide, Greg, was really knowledgable and friendly and kept us entertained with jokes the whole day. The lunch was delicious. The cruise on the Daintree river with our guide Jack was amazing and we were lucky enough to spot both a really young and an adult male crocodile. The views were stunning and it was lovely to see such an untouched and natural environment. Couldn’t finish without mentioning the gorgeous ice cream too! Highly recommend.

        Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation Day Tour
        We were a bit unsure about taking this trip but are so glad we did, an amazing, enjoyable and very informative trip. Our guide Daniel was so knowledgeable about the natural world, professional and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Although not cheap we think this was good value for money as we saw all the key highlights, plus several additional stops,and there were morning and afternoon refreshments plus a delicious lunch. Any dietary requirements were asked at the start, I am coeliac and my gluten free requirements were very well catered for, with no need to take my own food! Would highly recommend.

        Awesome sights, comprehensive and even delicious tour! Highly recommended!
        Really enjoyed this tour. Being new locals, we wanted to experience the Daintree and Cape Tribulation with an experienced tour guide for tips and the best attractions. We learnt so much about the flora, fauna and all the wildlife! Scott was a fantastic tour guide and gave us some awesome local information as well! Really enjoyed the sights, the food was fantastic- everything was so well organised - I highly recommend this tour for tourists and locals alike!!

      Booked a tour and was supposed to be picked up at 8:30am. Bus 40mins late with no notification for my friend and I who both listed valid mobile numbers and emails. When speaking to our hotel staff, they said it was a frequent occurrence with this tour company. You're better off buying your train and sky tram tickets and getting an Uber or taxi to/from the train stations.

      What a fabulous way to enjoy a luxury train journey through fabulous landscapes. Starting with a mocktail at Freshwater Station and then boarding the train was simple, seamless and enjoyable.
      Once on board, Aiko, our carriage guide served drinks and lovely hot food while making sure we knew where the next view was. We missed nothing.
      The lounge chairs are comfortable and the delightful heritage carriages are spotlessly clean. Drop down windows provide a cooling breeze and photo access. The stop at Barron Falls is long enough to take the pics you want.
      Access to the carriage is via steep narrow steps.

      Wow, wow, wow! This trip was amazing and we would highly recommend that if you can, upgrade to Gold Class. It was well and truly worth it! The skysail was fantastic and our boys aged 6 and 10 loved it. The two stops along the way to look at the fall were great and Luke was very knowledgable. The scenic railway home was fantastic. Gold class meant that we had our own quiet carriage with only a few others, comfortable, individual arm chair seating and a lovely and attentive host, Aikito, looking after our every needs. Included in gold class was unlimited wine, beer and soft drink, and Aikito kept our drink well topped up for the duration of the trip. We also received macadamia nuts, mango sorbet and an individual cheese and dip platter. Yum! I would highly recommend this tour and upgrade to gold class if you can!
      We booked though DownUnder Tours and found them to be professional and great deal wth!

      We walked from Double Tree by Hilton to the Cairns Railway Station to begin our journey to Kuranda on the Scenic Railway. It was a 20 minute walk to the station on a rather humid day. They were very helpful at the station and we finally boarded the train to find our set seats. The Gold Class section was almost full. We had very comfortable seats by the window to catch the beautiful views. The staff came around at took our drink orders of which you could have sparking wine, beer or cool drinks. We could have as much as we wanted. We also had a tray of food each which consisted of cream cheese & spinach pastry roll, savoury muffin and an enormous Anzac biscuit which was lovely. We finished off with a lovely Mango sorbet. On the trip you get to stop and stretch your legs and take a few photos of Barron Falls before heading off to the final stop at Kuranda. The train station at Kuranda is so beautiful that I took many photos. We headed of to check out the beautiful town of Kuranda. There is a lot to see and do here so allow some time to have a look around. We did the return journey by Skyrail so we could see the ocean on the way back.

      We called to confirm, as per instructions, and were told that the skyrail was closed because of the weather. As we had a rental car, we drove to Kuranda and the skyrail was operating. Not sure if they hadn't made arrangements to pick us up or if there was a change between our call and our arrival. We had attempted to call the day before and, even though the recording said we were calling during open hours, the rest of the message said they were closed.

      Booked on this trip for Tuesday 4th October through Trailfinders.
      Our Trailfinders voucher advised pick up time at 07:45. We contactedDown under Tours for confirmation of pick up details which was given as 11:05. With many pick ups on the way - arrived at Kuranda sky train at approx 13;45. On reaching village told to be back at railway station for train departing 15:30. We were not seated in comfortable gold class carriage, did not receive any tea or coffee or snacks and insufficient time from arrival to explore Kuranda village. Restaurants, bars etc were all closing before our train departed. This Tour did not deliver our expectations- basically a total waste of money and time. Down under tours did not provide the tour we paid for, so can only rate our experience as terrible on the basis of this and poor customer service (note not Trailfinders fault ). Would seriously consider never booking a trip with this company,

      An absolutely amazing trip. The little extra paid for gold class ticket with wine beer and canopes and bucket seats was def worth it. Barron falls were spectacular and if you do return on cable car as we did then you get to stop at photo point from both sides of it. Also did the Koala animal world in Karunda great value at $20 each but lots to see and then little village shops are not even rip off for tourist place. All in all great day out.

      It was a pleasant, easy experience and everyone was helpful. We enjoyed it very much and would recommend Skip the Line for Skyrail and for the Kuranda Train Gold Class trip. Really we didn't need dinner after the afternoon tea on the train. We had drinks, almonds to nibble on, cheese platters, drinks and mango sorbet.

      Cannot fault the Skyrail experience going up to Kuranda, or the Gold Class experience on the train coming back to Freshwater Station. The staff in our carriage on the train were lovely and the wine and cheeses excellent.
      However, we were looking forward to spending free time in Kuranda, which didn't really eventuate. If doing this tour again, we would make sure that it was for a full day in order to enjoy not only the Skyrail and train journeys, but to make sure that there was ample time given to that lovely village and the attractions there.
      Our pick-up time in Port Douglas was 11.15am and Tony our driver was prompt.
      We didn't expect the extra number of pick-ups on the way down to Cairns from Port. Because of the inexcusable tardiness of a couple of people at a resort along the way, our time-table was right out the window. We all waited over 20 minutes for these two to show up and board the bus. As they were only going a short distance to a crocodile and wildlife centre, we wondered why they were picked up on this tour anyway. Not only that, but once at the centre, our driver again had to leave us in the bus while they were shepherded to the entrance, taking even more of our time. By the time we reached the Skyrail we didn't have time to step off at any stage but went on directly to the Kuranda stop. There was little time to walk up the hill and get to the market so decided instead to stop at the Kuranda Hotel for something to eat. They had run out of food except for a bowl of hot chips and a drink.
      All credit to Tony our driver as this situation was not his doing. He was polite at all times.

      Thank you for your review. I am pleased you spoiled yourselves in Gold Class on the Kuranda Train and that you really enjoyed your experience on Skyrail Cableway. The transfer option from Port Douglas does make this tour an afternoon half day tour. This gives you the opportunity to sleep in, have a leisurely breakfast and then be picked up for your tour, roughly 11:00 - 11:15 am. The Skyrail up is at 12:45 and the train leaves Kuranda at 3:30pm, giving you about 1 hour -1.5 hour in Kuranda. The transfer is set up to pick up passengers for the Hartley's Crocodile Adventure, as well as for the Kuranda tour, as Hartley's is only 15 minutes out of Port Douglas in the same direction. There are other options if you have your own vehicle and want to self drive, but that isn't an option for a lot of people. Having the transfers is a great, cost effective alternative. Our coaches are comfortable, airconditioned and well appointed, with large windows for sightseeing along the coastal road. Transfers are also great for the trip home if you have sampled a few local beverages after travelling on Gold Class. I'm sorry your day didn't live up to your expectations.

      An amazing day! Very well organised from pick up to drop off. The Kuranda train ride was great. We loved the morning tea and champagne in the Gold Class carriage! Lovely scenery and commentary.
      We had lunch in Kuranda and then took the Skyrail back. We allowed ourselves plenty of time for the two stops on the way down. The waterfall on the partly glassed bridge gave lots of photo opportunies and the the forest boardwalk was relaxing. Scenery was amazing, great to see the tops of trees and ferns, a beautiful sight. Once down into Smithfield we enjoyed coffee and cake in the Skyrail cafe whilst waiting for our bus. One of the best days I've had here in Cairns!
