Michael was an excellent guide who provided informative and entertaining commentary along the way. You spend most of the day on your own in Kuranda and on the Skyrail and Scenic Rail. It’s not a full guided tour. You could buy the tickets on your own, but for a little extra, you have a guide who arranges everything for you, and picks you up and drops you off at your hotel right on time as promised. This was perfect for tourists like us that aren’t familiar with the area. He made an effort to get know everyone in the group and after learning that we were American, he even included miles and Fahrenheit conversions for us in his commentary. Really appreciate small things like that! There are other similar packages that included more activities for more money, but I really having those 2 1/2 hours (really almost 3) on our own in Kuranda. It was plenty of time to select and food and activities of our choice.

Our guide Chris is really entertaining and helpful. It’s a great day trip for everyone and we are able to use the shuttle to move from Port Douglas hotel to Cairns at the end of the trip to avoid the Ironman road closure the following day. Providers also very responsive via WhatsApp and email. Great time. Thanks guys.

Excellent commentary by Michael on route to the destination and return with a bit of witty humour. The vehicle was new and in excellent condition and very clean. Pickup was on time. I would recommend Cairns Custom Tours to anyone.

The skyrail was amazing but the train ride was a bit boring. But Michael was a good guide who picked and delivered us to and from our hotel. He was also very informative and told us about the cairns and what to do.

Nice and relaxing thanks to Michael who took all the stress away. The door to door service was so convenient.
