My partner and I absolutely loved this tour! Our tour guide Dale was extremely knowledgable and made the overall experience very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this as a must do tour for anyone visiting Cairns/Port Douglas!

beautiful day in rainforest, encounters with wild animals and just Aboriginals, super successful Aussue BBQ, only driver was not clear and program sweet delay, everything mixed up

Brett was a funny character with lots of knowledge about the areas visited. Skyrail and Kuranda Railway was better than I expected.
