Brilliant ! The scenery was breathtaking, the Skyride rates as one of the most exciting experiences I have had. The organisation of the trip was executed with military precision, which helped the day to run smoothly allowing time for me to take full advantage of every minute. A must do for everyone visiting The area.
Unfortunately the weather was not on our side the day we did this trip, view from the sky rail because of this was impaired, the so called barbecue was like a feast excellent food.
Breathtaking, especially the sky rail and railway.
The tour guide was excellent.
Excellent day especially enjoyed the Sky Rail over the forest. Lots to do at the Rainforestation Park including an excellent lunch!
This was such a marvellous experience. I didn't expect to have so much included in the day trip. Aboriginee Dancing, cable car ride through the rain forest and wonderful scenic railway trip back down from village of Kuranda. Coped with everything in spite of being disabled. Good value trip!
This was just the best, the staff was informative and smiley the scene was fantastic the market was just great and i loved the town of Kuranda
Good day out, scenic railway has some great scenery and the butterfly, birds and other animals are good fun. Cable car make down is very high but offers amazing views!
Wonderfully organised trip as different choices as to what you want to do on trip. Guide relly informative on route - stopped at scenic points including trres full of fruit bats! The railway and sky rail were fantastic also the Rainforestation Park we visited. Thoroughly enjoyed this worthwhile trip!
A good day with lots of things to see and do. Efficient pickup and drop-off. Friendly helpful driver and guide. Very well organised. The train and Skyrail were stunning journeys. Tjapukai was well structured, with plenty of things to do and see. Perhaps a little too long in Kuranda. It's a fairly interesting place, but you can 'do' it in 1.5 hours. I would recommend doing this tour; it was run by a very reputable company, and I felt that it was a quality event.
Brilliant, and great views. Best to do the one with the train ride first. I paid extra to have GOLD CLASS. Viator doesn't offer this, but I asked when I arrived as I saw it advertised. It may be worth ringing ahead in case it is full. The extras were complimentary drinks--champagne, wine, beer, soft drinks--snacks, and a souvenir pen. Main thing: You had an armchair to sit in, a guaranteed window seat, and room to move from side to side to get the best views.
The train and rail ride is a great way to take in the beautiful scenes, the stop at Kuranda Village had plenty of shops. The Tjapukai Aboriginal Park is a must, great way to learn about the indigenous people of Australia. You also get to learn and actually throw the spear and boomerang.
This was a wonderful "no pressure" trip. We were picked up at our hotel and returned at the end of the day. We did everything on our own time. We also got a chance to talk with Aboriginal people at the Cultural Center, which was enlightening.
I thought this tour was excellent.
This day trip was fab. After being picked up we were firstly up in the gondolas high above the forest, felt very priviledged. Walking through the village then to the 'duck' was great, knowledgable guide,then the very good buffet lunch.Welcoming guide directed us to everywhere, Koalas, Maori presentation through dance etc and then we had a go at throwing the boomerang! Returned by scenic railway (lovely station) back down to reality! Highlight, the gondola.
