We were picked up on time from our hotel and immediately put at ease by Brett introducing us to everyone on the bus. We were taken to places a little off the beaten track so to speak which was great as we learned a bit of local history and the places we were taken to were just magical! The food and wine were local and delicious and we learned so much about them. The views were spectacular. Varied venues, no lack of food and we met a great group of people. No pressure to purchase anything. This is a full day excursion, bring your hat and sunnies and comfortable shoes. We highly recommend this tour. Brett the guide is so knowledgeable and enjoyed sharing it with us. We appreciated his passion for the region.

We had a wonderful and educated afternoon with Eric. He was fantastic, gave us a great insight to the city of Cairns, as well as a very knowledgeable tour. The places he took us were exactly why we booked the tour in the first place. Everything was well timed and planned. The only sad part was saying goodbye to Eric at the end of the day, as we both felt like we'd met a friend. If he is ever down the G-Coast way, tell him to hit us up and it will be our turn to show him the sites...

We enjoyed the Mamu Tropical Skywalk and the audio tour was very good. It is an easy walk and a must to climb the tower at the end to see awesome views across the rainforest and valley below. The walk takes approx an hour. We also enjoyed Paronella Park. Take the free guided tour as you hear about the history of the Paronella family, the castles and Park. A good experience you will not find anywhere else.

Staff throughout the journey were consistently friendly and helpful. With a fear of heights the Skyrail was terrifying but staff consistently provided assurance and advice of what was part of each sector of the journey up to Kuranda which was helpful. The train journey was awesome.

It was magical to be in the rainforest, especially in the night, although it was tiring. I loved seeing the unusual animals, especially the tree kangaroo. I loved the dinner in the old-world hotel restaurant, and the food was good.
