5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

This is a must for any tourist or even residents. Wonderful experience to see the beauty of Kuranda rainforest by rail and skyway. So much beauty in every turn. The duck tour was a wonderful experience. We saw native plants, tour guide explaned what they were used for, oh so much information but worth knowing it all. It was also wonderful to visit the different shops. Had to control myself not to buy a lot of things I liked. Thought of my luggage weight. Skyrail was awesome, we were so high up in the air, horizon was beautiful, forest floor was awesome and we had a chance to gey off the gondola to walk in some areas of the rainforest. We had light sweater just in case it gets cool.

This was a very interesting tour. The narrow gauge railway was very scenic, but the duck ride was especially fun! We didn't know those existed, and it was good to see those vehicles from World War II being recycled.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2016

The train ride to the rainforest was not all that spectacular as it was advertised. The rainforest itself was mediocre. We took a duck tour through the rainforest but didn't really see much other than a few types of ferns! Our duck also broke down and we had to change the duck in the middle of a pond. The cable car ride down from the hill top was scenic and was the highlight of our trip. Would not do it again.

There was a lot of time between arriving at Kuranda and being able to return to Cairns. Would rather have been able to leave about two hours sooner

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2016

The Tor by Train and Skyrail was ok. The stop in Kuranda was a boring stay as there is absolutely nothing to do than shopping in expensive tourist shops even the shops at the airport are not so expensive. The Army Duck Tour was very poor: a very short tour with a lot of stops on a prepared road and not a really offroad Rainforest tour i assume this was not more than 2km.
There are other tours which are much better!!
