Would definitely recommend this package. 2 days was just right and we didn't feel rushed doing the tour. The helicopter trip was fantastic and worth the added extra. The crew on board the Osprey V were excellent and we felt looked after. If you are a fit time snorkneller they do an introductory session with a crew member which was very good and helped show you the highlights of the reef.
Kuranda village is beautiful. I went for the Rainforestation tour, (while it was a very nice nature reserve, with fantastic guides and a delicious buffet), you might want to look into what you can do in Kuranda, there are quite a few nature reserves, such as Kuala Garden that you might prefer. I still had an hour to wonder Kuranda, more than enough time if you don't want to go into any of the Gardens.
The Train up was indeed scenic and the Skyrail back was calm and beutiful.
The reef was the best thing I did in Cairns. If I could go back again, I would go on the reef at the beginning of the week and again at the end. Snorkeling above the reef with all the different fish is Majestic, Amazing and Beautiful, and seeing two massive turtles gracefully swim in front of me has become my go to place when work gets a little stressful.
The staff were friendly and the buffet served had good variety. For the love of god take a ginger pill like the staff suggest, such a shame when people get sea sickness, (but funny too).
I did have a helicopter ride booked on the way back, but the weather canceled it. Viator gave me a fair proportionate refund.
Bottom line, if your going to Queensland, you have to do the reef and this package was great value.
my son and I were in Cairns for 3 days. The 2-Day Best of cairns was a great way to see the sites. First day at Kuranda and Rainforestation was very picturesque ride in train and countryside. Cruise to barrier reef and snorkeling was spectacular. Very clear water (and safe!- I was worried about potential dangers in water). Best way to spend a short stay!
Simply Awsome. Grat experience
The best tour we've been. First class. Will use viator again in the future.
2 fab days
From the very beginning this was an awesome experience. Loved the Kuranda train and village particularly the fresh devonshire tea at the quaint railway station. The butterfly farm was beautiful but trying to photograph the elusive Ulysses butterfly nearly sent us crazy! Then we finished with the skyrail- WOW is that fantastic. Baron falls were beautiful
Day 2 The trip to the outer reef was excellent, the snorkelling was fantastic but even better at the second reef. Then came the wonderful trip home on the helicopter. Just a fantastic day.
Overall, these two days were extremely good value and a must for anyone visiting or even for the locals!
I would love to do this all over again!
It was a beautiful experience! The train ride allowed to enjoy the scenery but the sky rail was more exciting. In Kuranda was available buses to take us and bring us very good lunch and a ride on the amphibious Excellent!! Translated from Spanish.
We took the railway up, and we returned by the sky tram. Kuranda has many tourist shops. The wildlife/cultural park offered by the Viator package is well worth the money.
My husband and I found the tour a great pleasure to go on and we have recommended it to all our friends and family. We have the greatest respect for the drivers and we could not fault them at all. I will say it again it was the best time we ever had and we will be doing it again when we go back up there.
Every thing went to plan, all aspects good, from pick-up to drop-off. Thanks.
Amazing way to see the rainforest in Cairns. By doing the sky rail and train you get to see so much more.
Would have liked more time in Kuranda. Went on a river boat ride and loved it. Thank you.
An experience and a half. The Sky Rail was very good. If you're in Kuranda, don't miss this. The Butterfly Museum we visited for very little cost was fantastic. The guide who conducted the tour was the most knowledgeable we had met, and was very passionate about the butterflies. The people of Kuranda were very friendly and warm.
All was well working, also the weather was fine.
