Response From Barrier Reef Australia
We are so glad to hear you had a fantastic time on the 3 Day Combo Package, experiencing the Great Barrier Reef, Kuranda Train & Skyrail and Daintree Rainforest - the 3 most popular things to do when visiting Cairns! We look forward to helping you with your travel plans again on your next trip to Australia!
It was a great 3 days. From the first day when we got on Down Under reef and dive the crew were great. JC and Aaron took us throug the skills to learn to dive and we had a great day. Tommy was a great cook and the music at the end of the day was a great way to return from the reef. The whole crew were helpful and it was great. The next day on the train was educational and again the crew were so helpful walking around helping with family photos and the like. Going up the Daintree, Daniel was an exceptional guide and was willing and able to answer every question everyone asked him. He was also helpful in giving advice as to where to go and what to see.
