Cairns Custom Tours is locally owned and operated, is fully insured and is an accredited transport provider in Queensland since September 2019. Join me, Michael, on one of my Kuranda tours. My tours take only 11 passengers so less pick ups and drop offs means less time going in circles doing pickups before heading to Skyrail or the Kuranda Scenic Rail. Passengers arriving on cruise ships into Cairns between 8.30am and 10am please note we may be able to accomodate you with a later start and the 3.30pm train instead of the 2pm train from Kuranda. You would arrive back at the Cruise Liner Terminal about 5.30pm. Please contact me. I now welcome enquiries from small groups coming off ships at Yorkey's Knob. If you have questions please contact me. I use the Farharbour booking system, used by over 20,000 companies worldwide. It's safe and secure.
