Definitely recommend this trip especially if your short of time. You can see a lot of things in one day which leaves you time to see other things on your list. The helicopter flight is def the highlight, just make sure you have your camera with you.Reviewed by: Tim John P, September 2013
This is a trip worth doing, whether or not you have limited time. It is a great way of exploring the hinterland and the reef on the one day. The only problem we had with the day was the bus transport company (they were late, but this has minimal impact). The rail ride up to Kuranda is spectacular. Magnificent views; amazing engineering. Kuranda is worth a short stroll (there is about 45 minutes allotted to this (walk quickle up to the top and come back at a more leisurely pace). The sky-rail back is sensational. Stop at the two break points and look at the rain forest (particularly the Kauri trees). Then helicopter to the reef, snorkel or scuba, then lunch and a quick trip back.Reviewed by: David V, June 2013
great experience !Reviewed by: Rainer F, August 2013
The tour was good. All transfers (from hotel to Kuranda station, from station to Bottom of Sky rail, then to Helepad and back to hotel via the cruise ship) were very smooth. The staff everywhere was very cordial. In general we enjoyed the trip.
However, we were looking forward to the glass bottom tour in the cruise. We were informed that the glass bottom tour was cancelled when we arrived at the ship. Although they appologised, it was very disappointing for us. We had been looking forward to view the barrier reef through the glass bottom as a once in a lifetime opportunity. I and my wife were both very upset about it.
Thak you very much for your effort in organising the trip for us.
Not enough time on top of Kuranda. Food on boat was poor.Reviewed by: Juliann T, October 2013
