Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Cairns Super Saver: Great Barrier Reef Cruise plus Kuranda Scenic Railway plus Cape Tribulation Day Trip. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The high point was the marvelous day at the reef with lots of opportunities to see it from various aspects from boat, snorkeling, helicopter, etc. The train and cable car at Kuranda were also excellent to get a sense of the rain forest. The Cape Tribulation beach was paradise, but the day trip was more tiring due to the long distance covered by bus and many sites visited, but certainly worth it to see many things in a relatively short time!
Everything was good., well organized and fun. the down under package for reef was extra ordinary
We were very happy to get this Cairns Super Saver. Specially the Barrier Reef Cruise and Cape Tribulation Day.
When you are short on time this tour is the way to go! It was so nice to have each day planned out and just have to show up to see some of the most amazing things on this earth! From the cruise to the Daintree Rainforest, Crocodile Cruises and gorgeous coastline, this tour gives you a little taste of what the beautiful North QLD of Australia has to offer. I thoroughly enjoyed every tour guide each day and all were very happy to answer any questions and assist in any way that they could. They were full of fascinating information as well and I learned quite a bit!
I also have several food allergies which everyone was more than happy to accomodate for the meals that were included. They're quite tricky too - but I was still easily able to find something or be provided with a delicious meal. One of my favorites was grilled Barramundi and greek salad on the reef cruise!
I highly recommend this experience for anyone looking for a way to pack in a lot in a short amount of time.
I was traveling solo and had a fantastic time meeting so many other people doing these tours!
Highly recommend this package! It was a great way for us to see several of the things we would have had on our top ten list anyway. The great barrier reef cruise and snorkeling was the highlight for me. Great crew, food, and entertainment on the boat, and a fun time diving at two different reef locations!
These three tours were outstanding and should be done by all. The snorkeling on the reef was the best. Our bus did breakdown at Cape Tribulation but we really enjoyed the extra time at the Beach House and we did receive a refund for the part of the tour we did not get to complete. The shopping in Kuranda was good.
Fanstic 3 day tours, couldn't fault it! Cairns Super Saver is brilliant value, and they supplied us with great entertainment and service.
Great, great experience for me and my son. Never had any issues with any of the 3 tours. The guides are excellent and always eager to help.
The Tour was super. A high light snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef. We loved Sydney. A vibrant, friendly atmosphere. Everything works and runs to time. Efficient, beautiful shops, clean streets.
Our drivers were friendly and most informative.
The trip was fantastic. All the guides were amazing, especially the awesome crew!
Don't miss this tour! Great facilities, boat, crew, service. Snorkeling was wonderful - the highlight of the entire 4 week trip was seeing a 4 foot giant clam growing out of the reef (because I didn't believe they existed). One of our traveling companions is a certified diver, but preferred snorkeling to diving because of lighting conditions. Food was good, but line up early for best selection since it is first-come, first serve.
Great trip. Staff on the boat were excellent. They went out of their way to make sure everyone was having a good time and didn't miss out on anything. Would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of going to the reef.
An excellent trip very well-organised. Couldn't fault it in any respect.
Absolutely fabulous! Would highly recommend this trip to anyone! My favourite had to be the Great Barrier Reef Cruise, but going to Kuranda and then the beautiful calm beach of Cape Tribulation was wonderful too!!
We were taken to two sites. Both were excellent with the second being best. Saw many beautiful fish...including Nemo... crew was excellent. All in all this trip is highly recommended.
I am not a good swimmer and made the decision not to snorkel even though the crew gave me a lot of encouragement. Jeff dove but felt that the trip was more for snorkelers than divers. That said, we had a great time. We were taken good care of by the crew (who even gave out sea sickness tablets to those that needed them!) The lunch was cooked fresh, and was really good with enough for everyone. Then "Elvis" a crew member sang reggae and other songs on the trip back. We really enjoyed the trip.
The Kuranda Railway was amazing. Everything from the platform to the train etc. is a must see journey. I do not like heights at all so it was a stretch for me to go on the sky rail. I would have preferred to come down again on the train but Jeff really enjoyed the sky rail and felt it was worth it. Cape Tribulation day the heavens opened and everyone got soaked probably within the first 5 minutes of the trip. That said, it really didn't matter as we just went with the flow. When we stopped at the Wild Life Park in Port Douglas I did not know that you could feed the Kangaroo's so when we walked through the park they would come up and tap our pockets for food. We felt so guilty as they are so cute. I would recommend having $2 AUD handy to buy the food on the way in. We went back 2 times after this trip just to feed the "roo's" One of the Mum's had a baby in her pouch. This to me was the highlight of my trip, just feeding the Kangaroo's!! At Cape Tribulation we saw some of the biggest spiders, as usual our tour guides explained and taught us so much about the eco system and the plant and animal life. I would definitely do this tour again, also the lunch at the Cape T was really good. All the tours turned up on time, everything went really smoothly from beginning to end, and we really relaxed and fun.
We really enjoy the holiday stay in Palm Cove. These package of trips is enable us to see the most beautiful nature
in Cairns , Australia. Kuranda Scenic and Skyrail is the best.
Great trip! Loved the snorkeling! Kuranda Railroad is good but is better for history lovers. Cape Tribulation is beautiful and is worth the long trip.
All three days were fantastic. This is what you imagine australia to be about, friendly people, incredible views and fantastic wild life. Well organised, good value for money and great staff.
This 3 day tour is exceptional value for money. The flexibility of being able to spread each trip out over a number of days was most welcomed as they were all very early starts. The day trip to Cape Tribulation was special - such stunning scenery and our guide Russell was full of loads of interesting facts and history of the region. The stop at the wildlife habitat was so good - beautiful birds and a wonderful set up - no sense at all of the animals being enclosed - very friendly staff too. The lunch at Cape Trib was really nice - had the bbq kangaroo which was tender and moist. A walk along the beautiful beach afterwards was just what we needed. The inclusion of a river cruise as well for a bit of croc spotting only saw a baby one sadly was also very good. Day 2 saw us on the train to Kurunda - loved the train trip! Amazing scenery and so well organized! The best warm scones with jam and cream ever at Kurunda railway too! Enjoyed the wander through the markets but it was much more touristy than I thought it would be - all looked the same after a while. The cable car ride back down was breathtaking if not a little scary! Day 3 - trip to the reef - what a disappointment! Firstly the boat was small compared to the others in the marina and I'm sure this added to the horrendous trip to get to the reef. The seas were so rough about half of the passengers at least 40 people were sick for the whole 2 hour trip to get there! I think they should have warned us as we booked in and given us the option of not going at all. The speed with which the skipper went was quite frankly dangerous to say the least! I didnt go snorkelling as I was too ill but my husband did and he saw some lovely fish. The staff on board, whilst friendly were all VERY young I did wonder how experienced they actually were. The lunch on board was the usual aussie bbq standard fare - great salads too. The only saving grace of the day was the guitarist on the return trip who played some great old rock tunes.
There's not enough details about the first day. Meeting at the Reef Terminal at 7.30 isn't enough. Going from 1 company to another trying to find who we were going with. Once we found them it was a perfect day
We enjoyed all three experiences. If we could have enjoyed the Cape Tribulation Day more if we didn't feel so rushed. The driver had a full schedule, so he was a bit Swiss about time. It is a beautiful part of the world, for sure.
