We got to snorkel two reefs on an all day boating adventure. My husband does not swim but they gave him a lifevest and a personal guide pulling a life preserver in the water. He also rented a goggle with a stronger lense to be able to see everything under water a bit better. Food that was supplied was very good and a glass of wine with cheese and crackers was a nice end to our day.

We loved the Daintree rainforest and our guide was very informative.

Kuranda train trip was spectacular considering how this railway was built on the side of a steep mountain. We will have great memories of our trip to Cairns.

If you want the top notch experience, make sure that you do Rainforeststation (not to be confused with just Kuranda). I also thought Top Deck was truly worth it. I would skip Daintree if doing Rainforeststation in Kuranda. Two days would have been just fine for me. March is not the best time to visit the Great Barrier Reef. I found Grand Cayman much better to my surprise.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our area and that you enjoyed your tours. There are multiple options to upgrade your tour packages and the Top Deck upgrade is a great way to add value to your reef tour and certainly upgrading to include Rainforestation adds a lot of extra inclusions in your day. We appreciate your feedback. Regards, Jenny

Felt I got a lot for my money. Great barrier reef was amazing. Went with the Reef Experience. Crew was amazing. Breakfast and lunch were great. Got the option of a second dive for an additional charge. We were the only 2 certified divers so we got our own little tour and saw a couple sharks and a turtle. Had Jean from Discovery tours for Daintree rainforest and he was awesome. He was funny and very knowledgeable. Kept us entertained fhe entire time. Kuranda was ok. The train and the skyrail both had gorgeous views. There was a hand full of little attractions to see but all were separate costs. Got expensive if you wanted to do everything. You are also left up there for 4 hours, to probably encourage spending more money.

Hi Kiara, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am pleased to hear that the Reef Experience crew took such good care of you on your Great Barrier Reef tour. It's great to hear that Jean helped you enjoy your tour of the Daintree Rainforest,Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge. Kuranda has a lot to offer and there are some great free walks around the village and to the waterfalls that are available. I will make a note to have our drivers mention this to our customers for future. I appreciate your feedback. Regards, Jenny

Our guide Warren for the Daintree National Park was excellent. He was a fountain of information. We really enjoyed the Mossman Gorge and the ice cream stop.The Great Barrier Reef snorkeling with Reef Experience was one of the best snorkeling I’ve ever done. The crew was helpful and food was good.We were disappointed in the Kuranda trip because the weather closed the sky rail and we were not able to enjoy the ride.

The Cairns area of Eastern Australia offers many special experiences, two of which we were lucky to see. The Great Barrier Reef if astounding! The Skyrail trip over the rainforest with a scenic return railway journey on the Kuaranda railway is another amazing day out
