One of my bucket list trips
Joseph_L, Dec 2022
Love the trip to the outer great barrier reef. Boat ride was smooth. Staff was very kind and helpful. Food was also good. But the helicopter ride view was the highlight of the trip
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Hi Joseph I am thrilled that we were able to assist you to tick one off the bucket list, a Heli over our glorious Great Barrier Reef would have been delightful. Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review, it is really appreciated. Kind regards Kel
