We went on the Kuranda scenic train and palm cove tour. Even though it was an enjoyable day, and our guide Hillary was great. I believe the cost of $125pp for a return bus ride to Kuranda, a train trip and 30 minutes at palm cove was far too much.

This tour ably led by Steve filled the bill for the final day of our stay at Port Douglas. Seriously consider the train upgrade, a most enjoyable experience. The "Hippy Markets", Steve's description, should be explored for special treats.

Turned up on time, Steve's commentary on local things, people, and events as well as lots more. we enjoyed the train and then to the skyrail, he was there to meet us and tell us a few thing about the area, including restaurant's cafes and bars for lunch, he made the whole day very enjoyable for all.

The tour was well thought out & planned. Steve was an informative guide, with jokes thrown in for free. I felt well looked after & thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

Our early morning tour to Kuranda was a great day! Brett was right on schedule throughout the day... he peppered us with delightful facts and witticisms which made the trip to and from the train and sky rail departure and arrivals pass by! the side excursion to Palm Cove added to the overall enjoyment!

My wife and three young kids went on this tour with another family. Our guide, Mark, was an absolute champion who was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating - he really made the day! The scenery and landscape was phenomenal and the sky rail itself was breathtaking. This tour is a must

Thanks Brett for a great tour. We booked the 11:00 tour and were picked up at our hotel at the stated time. A little cozy as the van was full with 12 people. Brett stopped several times on the way to the cablecar to point out views or items of interest. We took the Diamond View cablecar up and the... More
