Wonderful trip and tour by our guides!
Great day, Eileen Smith, organised everything, it all worked like clockwork. Meal in Frog cafe was excellent, couldn't ask for a better day, or a better tour operator. Many thanks Cairns Tableland Tours.
This was an excellent excursion and I highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting Cairns. Eileen and her husband Clive were amazing tour operators. Promptly on time and were very professional and informative during the entire time they were with us. Skyrail, train and visiting Kuranda were very enjoyable and being in a small group compared to other excursion that fill up big buses, made this even more of a special adventure. The lunch in Kuranda was at a nice restaurant and was very tasty. Took my 85 year old parents on this excursion and they love it. Once again, highly recommend this tour to anyone as a fun day trip!
Three stars for the rain forest, but FIVE STARS for the tour operators, Eileen and Clive. Our small group turned out to be just us, so when we really didn't enjoy the rain forest we were able to adjust and not take the train ride back. Eileen was truly disappointed we hadn't enjoyed the trip up. But as we explained, there wasn't much to look at except the tops of trees and the waterfall. There were not bird, butterflies or other wildlife. We asked if she could help us arrange a helicopter ride out to the reef as our plan for the previous day had fallen through. We had a coffee and talked while waiting to here back. We were not optimistic as it was last minute and we were on a cruise and the ship usually gobbles up the limited capacity of small tours. But, Eileen knew someone and came through for us. So, you may or may not like the rainforest. BUT YOU WILL NOT REGRET HIRING TABLELAND TOURS FOR THIS TOUR OR ANY OTHER TOUR. Thanks Eileen and Clive!
Very good and informative tour. Lunch was excellent too.
We were told by others afterwards that the tour is better the other way around, train first and Skyrail to come back down but we enjoyed it anyway.
Had a brillant time, our tour guides gave 100 plenty of information, very friendly and could not be more helpful.
Was a good trip. Owner and husband were at the cruise terminal as we exited and we headed off. One change, however, the Kuranda Rail was out of commission due to a landslide. So we took the cable car up to Kuranda on our own. Lesley meet us in Kuranda as we exited the cable cars. Gave us some info on Kuranda, where to shop, etc. Then we had about an hour to wander before meeting up for lunch. Lesley and Clive were great hosts, lunch was very good as was the conversation. Nothing to do with Lesley and Clive, but I was not impressed with Kuranda nor the shopping.
We drove back to Cairns where a visit to the Cairns aquarium was substituted for the cancelled rail journey. As it turns out, that was a better option the aquarium is dedicated exclusively to the habitats and species of North Queensland and was excellent. The guide led us thru the museum and knew her way around and was knowledgeable.
Good tour. Only issue was that guide told us there wasn't much to do at the village and suggested we leave at an earlier time, so we agreed only to regret that decision.
Operators very keen to please their guests
Stunning scenery as you glide to Kuranda on the Skyrail gondolas, and return to Cairns on the historic narrow gauge Kuranda Scenic Railway. Travel hosts Eileen and Clive are delightful. Only change we would recommend would be to shorten the stay in Kuranda if you're not a shopper.
