Great tour but too many things to see and do in one day. Also did not expect to have to use a shuttle bus to go to different places instead of an assigned bus and tour guide. Did not like riding shuttle bus with people standing
Would recommend. You cover a lot in one day which makes it worth it!

Despite how hot it was (February 2020), we had an amazing time! Everything was so well planned, and had an itinerary to go with it. The bus driver was so helpful and provided instructions on how everything would work. We paid for the butterfly exhibit separately and we were glad we went to it, so we probably should have bought the package that included that. Not sure if it is always like this, but we had a smaller groups so all the shows, and tours felt more like private tours which was great. Staff was so friendly. BBQ lunch was great.
At the Rainforest Station and the skyrail

Enjoyable trip up on the train with great views. Karunda is good for a body’s with activities to keep you busy all day. Cable car down provides different views of the rain forest & is fun. Make sure you get off at the 2 stations to look at the views.
Don’t miss this one!

If you find yourself in this part of the world, I highly recommend this tour. It was enlightening, fun, efficiently run and we had a fabulous guide.

loved the train ride ; the wildlife park; the koala picture opportunity keep in mind that you will be at the train station early until everyone arrives for the departure also i was not keen on the 1 and 1/4 hr shopping time in the little village i did not need all that time.
So much fun! Great learning experience!

Scenic train ride was fun. Village was nice with authentic shops. Rainforestation was fascinating. Pamagirri members were friendly and patient in sharing thei culture. Could pet and feed kangaroos that were not caged. Fed us a good hardy lunch. Skyrail ride is long and stunning. Most worthwhile. Bus driver Mohammed was friendly, entertaining and informative. Great experience altogether.
Worth the money paid

All the activities during this trip were amazing. I especially enjoyed the skyrail cableway ride over the rainforest. The view was breathtaking. The train ride was wonderful, the Kuranda village is interesting, the food was sumptuous and everything was done according to plan. Our driver and our guide were very accomplished and friendly. I will definitely recommend this to my friends.
Excellent day full of animals & scenic views!

Had a great day taking the train up the mountain and through the forest, then got a surprisingly good bbq lunch at the wildlife park. This was followed by a koala viewing, aboriginal experience (including throwing boomerangs!) and then hanging out with some wildlife including some kangaroos and wallabies! We ended the day with a beautiful rude on the skyrail and was able to see all of Cairns. It was so beautiful!
Great scenery, a little rushed
, Aug 2019
A great tour and day, fantastic information provided on where to be when, however there’s a lot fitted in and it did feel quite rushed at times. The Aboriginal Pamagirri Experience felt a little poorly planned, we had about 45 people in our group for the demonstration whilst the other group was about 10. If you want a photo taken with a Koala then rush lunch and go straight there or you won’t get another chance, if you want until the time they say the queues are too long and you’ll have to decide to miss that or your next tour. The SkyRail is an amazing experience, however make sure you have a head for heights! Overall a fantastic tour, great for all ages and would definitely recommend.
