Aboriginal Culture and the Great Barrier Reef - a Great Experience
Marilyn_J
, Mar 2020
We knew very little about aboriginal culture prior to our visit to Tjapukai. It was a revelation. We were thrilled that we had the opportunity to try things like spear- and boomerang-throwing and dance. The Great Barrier Reef was a once in a lifetime experience. We had a short snorkelling outing, then tried the scooba-doo and finished with the semi sub. Despite the world events happening around us and them, the tour operators did a great job showing us the wonders of Australia. Many thanks to Gail of the Scooba-doos!

G'Day Marilyn_J, Thank you very much for taking the time to review our 4 Day Cairns and Great Barrier Reef tour, and it sounded like you had an amazing time exploring Tropical North Queensland. We are so happy that you enjoyed visiting the Great Barrier Reef as it is truly a special part of the world, and a must-see if visiting Australia. We hope to see you soon on another AAT Kings tour. Thanks, The Team at AAT Kings

Lousy communication form the organising company mars an otherwise pleasant stay. They didn't leave any notes or reminders at the hotel about pick-up times or options on the cruise. I called them and didn't even bother to inform me about the $150 options on the cruise. Carrying no cash when I go snorkeling (who does), I couldn't do them. I'm the customer, I'm the one paying, I'm the one who must be informed about EVERYTHING. It's not up to me to go phoning God knows who to collect information. Don't bother with this tour on Viator. So yeah ZERO COMMUNICATION is what this company provides. On the last day, my plane was leaving at 12.00. So I was expecting them at around 11.00 knowing the airport was like 6-7 minutes from the Hilton. They showed up at 10.15. Pffff, ended up paying for the cab myself. Apart from the disastrous communication, the excursions were good. Those suffering from motion sickness, please keep in mind the trip to the barrier is long and the sea can get rough. Very nice crew onboard, good food. The rainforest was lovely, Daniel was a great guide, excellent BBQ in the forest too.

Het was helemaal naar wens, mooie boottocht en skirail tour!! Als je in Egypte geweest bent valt het koraal bij de Great Barrier reef erg tegen.
