Spent an enjoyable full day with James our experienced, knowledgeable and good natured tour guide and driver. Toured the Wildlife Habitat in Port Douglas to introduce us to native wildlife. Good lunch in Cape Tribulation and had a chance to stretch our legs on the Cape Trib beach and on the boardwalk tours through the rainforest.

This was a great tour that gave us a feel for the different animal species in and around Cairns and the Daintree Rainforest was beautiful. However, I was a little disappointed in the zip lining. It was very safe, but there wasn't much "adventure" to it. The lines are fairly close together and we had a large group so there... More

Having never been to Kuranda before was unsure what to expect but was such a good day! So much there to see - heaps of different wildlife places which I loved and the train + skyrail were both so interesting! Even got to stroke a baby dingo whilst there which was the highlight of the day!

We went on the Daintree / Cape Tribulation Tour. Stopped off for Jungle Surfing. Our Tour Guide George was amazing; our 2 Boys had the best day with him riding in the Front. George gave them the best education about the land. The day was faultless; a must do. If you are considering; book with this group & do the... More

A good tour train, sky rail, kuranda, butterfly sanctuary, Rainforestation and the aboriginal village. It all felt very rushed though, as we were herded around. Tour needed to be a couple of hours longer

We went Gold Class up on the train and it was worth it. With better seating, snacks and wine was served by very pleasent staff. We came down by Skyrail and the views were great. Kuranda is for the tourist in a nice way. This is a "MUST DO" day out for anyone visiting Cairns. There is a shuttle bus... More
