The experience was amazing, the Skyrail ride was long and we enjoyed every minute of it. The bus drivers were very funny. The down part was that it was very hot inside the train, even if they were prepared with paper fans and cold refreshing towels, maybe some vent systems will help.

The tour would have been canceled due to the weather, as it poured all night into the late morning, including lightning and thunder. If we hadn't started it, we would have got the money back. Nevertheless, we took the organized shuttle to the station and then looked at it there. The bus would have been an alternative, but we didn't want that. After two hours of waiting and a top organization, we sat in the gondola :) Rebooking for the train later was no problem either. The trip with the gondola actually takes about 1.5 hours including stops and waiting times for the gondola to board. In Kuranda itself we only had a good hour before the train drove back. We used these for a late lunch. The train ride back was relaxed and relaxing. All in all recommendable, but not necessarily via getyourguide. There are cheaper local suppliers

I think it would be cheaper if you come on your own. You always have to want to drive on the left ... Nevertheless, the transport is very satisfactory, on time and picked up at the hotel. I booked the previous evening at the end of the afternoon and received a transport confirmation very early in the morning by SMS. So everything is well organized. I will highly recommend your site
