Matter for the organisers.

Had a wonderful long day. Everything was well organised by the tour planner. It would have been good, if the passengers on the train, were asked to wear a mask. I was seated in front of a man, who coughed loud, all the way, without any concern about the the others, and not wearing a mask. Everyone knows that Covid is still not under control. So precautions should be taken.

A must-do expedition!
Aiden_A
, Jul 2022
Michael was an amazing tour guide, conviniently picking me up and dropping me off at my hotel. Michael's commentary on the trip was very detailed and thorough. Starting off at Cairns Station, the train journey was full of stunning views and traveled at a great pace to see the tropics. Two hours of time in Kuranda was more than ample to explore the old railway station, the local township, and the markets. Afterward, Michael was in contact with personalised information for the Skyrail expedition. Definitely recommend disembarking the Skyrail at each opportunity to stretch the legs and explore the amazing rainforest. Overall, an amazing tour, led by a great tour guide.

We had a beautiful time spent in Kuranda village via scenic rail and skyrail. Michael was very informative and helpful in every way. It was a well spent Saturday with a child. I would highly recommend his service, he is on time, accomodating and friendly. We would definitely come back and book with him in the future.

Ticketing and timing of events for the day all oragnised
Annabelle_M

Easily organised - sent regular SMS reminders during the day by tour leader Michael.All ticketing and timing of activities conveniently organised. could sit back and enjoy! Would not recommend Barron Falls Hotel for lunch as waited 45mins and order was not placed which then limited our time to enjoy visiting places in Kuranda.

An amazing day. Michael was excellent from initial booking to hotel drop off. Maintained contact through the day. Pick ups on time and great commentary and service. All tickets sorted without issue. The whole trip up to Kuranda on the train, 2 1/2 hours in Kuranda and the Skyrail with 2 stops on the way down, was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and highly recommend Michael. Thank you

Big Day out
Jacki_W
, Jun 2022
It is worth seeing but train ride way too long giving you hardly any time to see things in Kuranda. S. Things to see in the town is eccellent, just choose wisely as I said, only time to do one activity before you have to leave. Skyrail fantastic
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
How was my service Jacki? Your original itinerary was changed to allow more time in Kuranda. Your updated itinerary allowed 2.5 hours in Kuranda as you arrived in the train at 1130 and were booking on Skyrail at 2pm. For many people this is sufficient time. The Viator and Tripadvisor listing clearly states how much time is allowed in Kuranda. If you wanted more time, why didn't you book with an operator that offers that itinerary?

Good but time poor and no train
Glenn_B
, Jun 2022
Most memorable was Bird world, Butterfly World, Gondola and street shopping, only do the original markets if you enjoy hippies and that 70s vibe. We found the street store shopping was much better Sadly the train was again kffli E due to mechanical issues and the 2hrs 15 in Kuranda was not long enough before we had to get the cable car back to the bottom station, it just felt a bit rushed
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
I'm pleased you enjoyed the tour Glenn. It's unfortunate the trains operated by Queensland Rail were not running. One trains locomotive had mechanical issues and the other was damaged in a level crossing incident on 13 June. I have no control over these things and clearly explained it on the day. All passengers were given the choice of cancelation or do the tour by bus one way with a part refund. I processed all of the part refunds that day. What else can I can do?

Overall good. But if we can get more free time it must be the best. Thank you Michael for the service.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Thanks for the review Kenny. I am exploring a way to allow more time on this tour. On the day you travelled I understand the train left Cairns about 20 minutes late and that reduced your time in Kuranda. I'm sorry about that.

A well worth tour thanks Michael for a great Day.

It was my Birthday and Michael picked us up on time and everything was well organised. We grabbed a coffee at the train station boarded and sat back and peacefully listened to the commentary and observed the beautiful sites. Had a lovely stroll around Kuranda, ate lunch, bought a few items and then popped on the Skyrail to be met by Michael at the other end. It was a lovely, organised tour and everything ran to clock work. Saturday 4/6/2022 Heather Vidler
