We had 3 consecutive days of touring out of Cairns with this 3 day Super Saver. The beautiful boat ride to the Great Barrier Reef to snorkel in 2 separate spots can now be struck of my bucket list. Fabulous snorkeling, clear 28 degree waters and an abundance of beautiful fish and turtles. Lunch was generous and delicious. Crew was attentive and made sure everyone was comfortable and safe - even first time snorkelers.
The next day we enjoyed the train to Kuranda, our time in Kuranda where you can add on all kinds of adventures and wildlife viewing and walks and the Gondola Ride back down. Highlight was visiting the Fruit Bat wildlife refuge. Absolutely fascinating and I went from hating and fearing bats to knowing all about their importance and intelligence.
Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge was a 12 hours tour. Our bus driver made the day knowledgeable, interesting funny and an excellent driver. Enjoyed the stop at the wildlife refuge where we saw crocodiles and koalas and were able to feed and pet the wallabies and koalas. Lunch at the beach was wonderful, the river cruise to find some crocs in the wild was lovely, interesting and successful. Really a day packed full of so many different elements as we saw a lot and learned a lot and had a fabulous time.
Excellent trip - very well organised and great tour guides.
A well organised trip with amazing destinations!! If you want to do all the main things in Cairns in a short space of time this is the trip to do!!
Very good value for money, the reef tour was very well organised a great boat, food and staff could not fault, Kuranda we enjoyed but would have preferred the driver organising a collection of tickets for us as we had to wait over half an hour to pick them up. Daniel our driver for the Cape tribulation tour was fantatastic very well organised and worked hard to give us a brilliant day, food at lunch was the best out of all 6 excursions, defiantly recommend package.
Everything was wonderful: wildlife parks, the crew, transportation etc.
This was a fabulous tour package. Down Under Dive was outstanding in their professionalism, friendliness, organization and their diligence to our safety. The Great Barrier Reef was the highlight of our trip to Australia. The trip to Kuranda was excellent and loved the train but loved the Sky train even more. Excellent day. The rain forest and Cape Tribulation was equally pleasing. Great package. Love it.
Who doesnt like a Super Saver? This was a good value for three days of snorkeling and diving, visiting a mountain village via train for some hiking, shopping, and Australia meat pies or any other cuisine that may interest you, and visiting a wildlife sanctuary and the Daintree National Park. Talk about diversity!
The snorkeling and diving adventure was on board the beautiful Evolution that had 60 to 70 clients on board. Be sure to take your sea sick pills as the trip out to the reef and back was very challenging for many on the boat. We anchored at two locations for diving and/or snorkeling for 2 to 2 ½ hours at each reef. Make sure you bring or rent an underwater camera, as the coral and fish were too fabulous not to be captured. A nice seafood lunch was served and there was plenty of room to move between decks. We took an optional helicopter ride along the Great Barrier Reef. If a helicopter ride is on your bucket list, this is definitely the place to do it. Just WOW!
We took the 2-hour Kuranda Scenic Railway to the rainforest village of Kuranda. It was a train journey that will take you back to Australias past. This was an unguided day, so aside from your departure times, you will be on your own to explore. Kuranda is extremely tourist oriented with shops, galleries, and restaurants. We opted to hike for 2 hours, and spent an hour in the village for lunch. We caught the Sky Tram back which facilitated a birds eye view of the rainforest canopy. Take the opportunity to take a walk at each of the transfer stations going down stunning views of the waterfall.
The last tour took us to Port Douglas Wildlife Habitat where we saw birds, koalas, kangaroos, and so much more! This alone was worth the price. We visited Mossman Gorge lots of beautiful photo opportunities and journeyed up to Cape Tribulation for lunch and time on one of the most beautiful beaches. Another highlight was the boat trip on the Daintree River for crocodile spotting.
It was a fantastic and amazing tour. The knowledgeable tour guide was friendly and awesome. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
We skipped the first part as the weather was a bit touchy and we were tired after the flight from Sydney. Kuranda trip was all day and very enjoyable. It's worth the time. A stop at Rainforest Station was great and was reasonable. Sky Rail ride was very nice. Cape Tribulation makes for a very long day and our driver/guide was first rate. The stop near Port Douglas at the bird station was very good. Again, it's a long day but enjoyable.
Worth every dollar. What stood out the most was the story telling by the guides from Down Under that made for rich sightseeing. Met a lot of new people from different countries and enjoyed exchanging stories. The tour was well organized. No delays. Have already recommended to a couple of colleagues.
The reef gets 7 stars out of 5! lovely cruise, good lunch although veggie options could be more accessible, friendly crew, spectacular snorkelling...the kuranda day was slightly do-it-yourself kind but we enjoyed the aboriginal centre in Kuranda and the cable ride Kuranda is a commercial venture though and day 3 was again 7 stars out of 5 daintree, mossman gorge. The number of crocs we saw and the boat trip to see them will be lasting memories. Also loved the conservation attitude of the boat guide. Our guide for the day Daniel was super cool. Friendly and informative. Thank you all.
Highly highly recommend this trip barrier reef diving class, train ride and cable car thought this cannot be beat third day rain forest saw loads of wildlife and a river sail to see crocs live brilliant thank you.

This trip was incredible. The savings booking the three events together was very significient. The entire experience from the beginning to the end was professional, enjoyable, and certainly woth the money.
Brilliant. Everything ran smoothly and on time. Tours were super organised, fun and interesting. A truly wonderful experience, could not have asked for better!
Fantastic trip to Cairns! Fantastic Experiences! Fantastic Value!
We started our package with the reef trip. We travelled in style in an almost-new ship to the Great Barrier Reef with friendly staff and good food. Our two dives had us seeing an abundance of reef fish plus sharks and rays! Our ride back was entertaining and, again, we were well-fed.
Our second day was the scenic railway trip to Kuranda. We were whisked up into the mountains on a beautiful old train with beautiful scenery to the quaint town of Kuranda. We decided to spend the extra money to go into the Koala gardens and it was worth every penny to have the experience to hold and cuddle our little koala, Hazel! She was very cute! We returned from Kuranda on the Sky Rail and, even for this height averse person, the views were breathtaking. Take the time to get off on the two trnasfers and walk around. The views of the falls are worth the extra time!
The last day was packed with fun and excitement! There is a LOT to see on this day so do not expect to dawdle! Our guide, Russell was very good about keeping us on schedule without being intrusive and I never felt rushed. We knew from previous reviews to expect to be through the Port Douglas Wildlife Habitat by 9:15am. While it sounds early we had plenty of time to experience some amazing animals. We got to pet wallabies and kangaroos while giant storks and emus waddled past. We got to see the oddly entrancing cassowary and, I have to say, you will never see anything quite like it and I still have a hard time believing it actually exists. We then toured Mossman's Gorge before having lunch in the Daintree Rainforest. The food was surprisingly well prepared I had a perfectly grilled steak. After lunch we strolled on Capr Tribulation beach for a short time before heading back to a crocodile river cruise where we saw several crocodiles and all the beauty of Daintree!
It was a magical day that capped off an amazing experience for our family!
Perfect. Staff were great. Vessel was lovely. Food was amazing. Snorkelling and scuba diving was amazing. A very well organised event.
5 out of 5. The best bang for your buck, WITHOUT a doubt!!! The service was excellent - friendly and informative...and on time. This tour provided such a range of experiences...something for everyone. I didn't feel I had to see anything else. The boat, chopper and buses were in new and excellent condition. The food was unexpectedly delicious. Soooo glad I clicked 'Buy now'. One of the best packages EVER. Absolutely no good reason to book with anyone else.

This was the best money I spent in Australia! We had 3 very long full days of tours, but we really got a true tour of the Australian countryside, Great Barrier Reef, river cruise to see crocks, Rain Forrest tour with a native ranger.
We had a wonderful time! The weather, the water and snorkeling, the crew and the food couldn't have been any better. Everyone was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed Tom T Bone singing and playing guitar as we cruised back in..
