A lovely relaxing day out - very easy way to see a beautiful part of the world. The Skyrail was incredible! Our coach drivers Paul and Tony was awesome - on time and great humour! There was a lot of free time which was lovely but almost too much as it would been nice to head back earlier. While we understand that the other activities were optional - the price of the day trip was experience and then to add food and the optionals as well pushed the budget beyond what was anticipated. Overall a lovely day and a beautiful part of the world to witness.

The skyrail was terrific... stopping to walk in the rain forest. In the heat the train up in the morning would be best as it was uncomfortably hot and sticky on the way down in the train which detracted from the experience. I feel we paid too much as we were not staying in Cairns and didn't require a transfer pick up, we drove our own vehicle to the skyrail. I did ring when booking and spoke to someone to explain that I couldn't finish my booking because it would not take my pick up location. I was not informed to book the drive yourself package and consequently paid $171.00 each which I thought was excessive.

This is a perfect tour of you want your own time to explore the village of Kuranda. We were picked up at our hotel and dropped off at the skyrail. Our tickets were provided and we explored the village at our own leisure. We had about 3 hours to fill, which was enough time to explore the shops and visit the butterfly sanctuary.
