The train ride is very scenic and is an interesting experience. Kuranda is a small town filled with small gift shops and galleries and the time there is well spent looking around. While there it is well worthwhile visiting the koala park where you have chance to hold a koala wow. What an experience. The gondola sky rail is brilliant view and exhilarating experience.
All in all great time not to be missed.

The Kuranda railway is something that shouldn't be missed. We were impressed to be given a 2 seater bench, rather than have to share. Lots of information was provided and the stations are full of interesting material, as well as lots of 'gifts'. Plenty of time to get a nice lunch at Kuranda before the Skyway down. It's a long way down and we were grateful for the stops one can make to walk around. The leaflet presumes you will go up on the Skyway and down on the train and gave helpful hints for things to look out for - I wished we had found this earlier. An excellent trip.

Lovely day out from Cairns : Kuranda is a beautiful village, lots of nice shops and a chance to mix with the locals. Train and cable car were lovely - I personally would have liked to have been booked on a slightly earlier cable car, to let me explore the stops fully, rather than a quick pit-stop, but overall, a great day!

It was a fantastic tour. The Tjapukai Cultural Center was my favorite. The Skyrail gave us great views. The train ride back down to Cairns was really quite slow. Otherwise, it was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this tour.

A very overcast, low hanging clouds morning trip up from Cairns to Karunda diminished our enjoyment of the train ride as scenic views were limited. However, by the afternoon on our return trip the weather had cleared up and we enjoyed great views from the sky train. Be aware, however, that the sky train lines to board in Karunda and the stops on the way down are often long and slow. It took us a long time to get back on the sky train at one of the stops because few were getting off to open up cars for those of us who wanted to get back on. The reforestation add on tour was first class. The included lunch was excellent. Really enjoyed the kangaroo steak on skewers after my wife fed the wallabies!

The tour was organized in an excellent fashion and fully lived up to its promise. Being on a cruise we discovered that the ship provided the same tour but at twice the cost. We will definitely book with Viator in the future.

This was one of the high points of our trip to Australia. If I could have changed one thing, we would have had more time in Kuranda. Other than that, it was great.

A fantastic day out - I am not a poet so cannot find the words to convey what I saw or possibly more importantly, felt about what I saw. It was an experience I shall long remember.

Nice scenic railway train ride up to Small touristy village of Kuranda, beautiful sky ride back with 2 picturesque syops. Lovely day, especially for train fans. And Kuranda has a hidden Mimi golf spot for those who enjoy that! Rainforest Mimi golf. Fun day for entire family.

Absolutely fabulous from start to finish. Very exciting and informative, do take the stops on the way up in the cable car as they are very interesting. Loved Kuranda, a couple of amazing galleries and a great lunch.
