Excellent day - well timed and just enough time to experience everything. Very good value for money.Reviewed by: Grant M, January 2014
What a great day. We took this tour to squeeze Kuranda and the skyrail into the day otherwise couldn't get to see them. Glad we did but ideally would do them separately. The rail ride was nice and relaxing and scenic. We didn't have enough time at Kuranda to be honest and it seemed like a nice town to wander through so on reflection, do this separately. The skyrail (and the stops) were very scenic and one of those you have to do at least once things.
But the helicopter tour and reef experience are MUST do's. We were treated like VIP's with a wonderful lunch provided and would do this part over and over if we could afford it.
Highly rate this trip if you want to tick off these things but would suggest spending at least a full day at each separately or if you had to choose - the helicopter tour and reef swimming win and are musts - even for those that don't like swimming,Reviewed by: sirius, January 2014
Fantastic and relaxing day, the train and cable car were excellent. Our flight over the Barrier Reef will be remembered for life, had a most enjoyable day.Reviewed by: Donald C, November 2013
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 dayReviewed by: Mónica V, February 2013
great way to see everything in a day
The trip was absolutely fantastic. A bit rushed at Kuranda having to go straight from the train to the Skyrail. But overall we would do it again.Reviewed by: Tracey K, December 2012
Great fun-filled day. Railway beautiful and nice for early morning. No real time in Kurunda as need to get skyrail down pretty quick. Helicopter great, only about an hr for snorklingReviewed by: john b, June 2012
