This makes a great family trip! Highly recommend the skyway over the rainforest, it's simply amazing!

Unfortunately, it was a cloudy, rainy day and many of the best views were obscured. There was plenty of time in Kuranda, but not quite enough time at the Skyrail stops to walk into the rainforest. The Tjapukai segment was outstanding except for the explanation about the bush foods and medicinal plants which was rushed and not very understandable. Learning to throw the boomerang was a highlight.

The train ride was very scenic and Skyrail had great views out to the ocean. It's so quiet floating above the rainforest canopy. The highlight though was Tjapukai, it was interesting hearing the stories and about the culture of the Aboriginal people of the area.

This was a nice full day of activity. We loved the town of Kuranda, there was good shopping there, and we enjoyed the Koala Gardens! The train ride and sky rail were peaceful and serene, but we found the Tjapuki Tour most interesting!

Had done this trip before but for the two family members I travelled with this was their first time. The Down Under staff were extremely helpful, always there to ensure the whole day ran smoothly and on time. They were courteous and friendly throughout.

Well, without getting 'gushy' I thought the tour was well worth the expense. Everyone involved with the event / tour were pleasant, professional, and efficient. The scenery, the activities made for a most pleasant and enjoyable time. I will recommend this tour to my friends in the USA should they visit Australia, especially the Cairns area.

Kuranda rail and aboriginal park worth the trip. But very disappointed that skyrail was closed just before our go and even more disappointed that viator have still not responded to my email and reimbursed my husband and myself the cost of this part of my tour which . Now in Thailand for next couple of days and had every intention of booking some trips with you but of course that will not be happening now .

We did the Sky, Rainforest and Rail trip. The skyrail was the highlight of the tour. The views were briliiant. However, the train journey was very underwhelming. The views were great in places, but not very interesting for the majority of the trip. Kuranda itself doesn't have much to offer, and the tour didn't give enough free time to allow us to visit the butterfly sanctuary (we had 45 mins in the town altogether and it's a 10 min walk from the skyrail to the main part of the town).

A lot of activities but, poorly organized. You get on a bus from your hotel, handed a voucher and schedule and left to fend for yourself. Multiple connections are needed and very little time for error. I have been traveling for over 25 years and had a problem finding where to go to pick up on connections. Once you make one mistake you will ruin the rest of your day on this one. It would help if they actually had someone to guide you at least at the switch points. Instead you just get dropped off by yourself with a map.

The "scenic" rail was boring. Only one part of the train trip was a nice view - the remaining 50 minutes you really couldn't see anything especially if you were seated on the inner side. The Kuranda village was cute, lots of tourist shops, although we did do a nice little family friendly hike around the outside of the village which got us away from the bulk of the tourists. The Skyrail was the best part of the package, which can also be done on its own - great views over the rainforest and its about a 45 minute ride. The Tjapukai center was a joke, but the boomerang throwing was kind of fun - however you only get 2 throws.
