Loved everything about this tour. Whilst it was a long day, it was broken up with different stops and the bus was comfortable. Uta, our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge of the area and had a great sense of humour. Mossman Gorge was stunning and I loved meeting all the crocs along the Daintree River. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone wanting to explore these areas.…

If you Holiday in Cairns then you must do The Kuranda rail journey, the commentary provided on the journey up to Kuranda puts into perspective the immense task it would have been to build this railway. Many individuals lost their lives & toiled with handtools to get the job done.

great experience till we got to Kuranda. Arrived just before 2pm to find no food available to eat as stores were out of food could not go on boat tour as cableway ceased operation same time boat tour ended. Clearly not a well organised operation between cableway and Kuranda businesses. Got to the cableway at Kuranda to make our way back. Noted Covid social distancing in your group signage in the queue which was great to see. Though my husband and myself were force to share gondola with another couple in the same closed environment no 1.5 m distancing no masks offered. my husband and I got off only to be told by the staff member “ now you will have to wait till the end of the queue” like naughty children we waited for all the other people to get on before we could get back on. Certainly not worth the money or the demoralising way we were treated. I spoke to the manager when we got off only to be told that the Queensland Government approved for them to able to mix groups. As a healthcare worker this doesn’t make sense, socially distance in groups outside but we can put you in a gondola (closed environment) with a couple from a different household within touching distance and breathe onto each other with no masks offered (approved by the Queensland Government apparently).…
