The Helicopter tour was outstanding. The Heli Tour group, Tom, Dave, and Brad , made all aspects of the tour amazing! It was a great experience for my wife and myself. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Cairns area.

Fabulous trip. The staff is funny, friendly and so accommodating. I did not know how to swim and although I think I could have done the snorkeling, I was too scared, so there was an option where one of the staff pulled you around on a life preserver donut. I got great pictures and the feeling of security. The food was fabulous, the helicopter ride was such fun and beautiful. Can't say enough about this!!!

We booked out tour with Viator (this being the first time). The whole day was perfect. We were picked up on time and brought to the marina for our reef snorkelling. What a awesome day and the highlight was being able to hire a underwater camera and have those photos put onto a cd to take home. The buffet lunch was very tasty and lots of food to go around. Morning and afternoon tea was also provided and that was very nice also. You did have to pay for stinger suits though which we highly recommend. The helicopter ride back was very nice and once landed we were brought back to our accomodation. The whole day was perfect and I could not have asked for anymore. Well done to all and highly recommend using Viator for your next booking. Happy travelling.

Absolutely incredible! I'd recommend the helicopter over the reef and you also have to snorkel. We were well looked after on this tour.

The helicopter ride was breathtaking and a memory I will cherish forever! Seeing the reef from the sky was just amazing. We had the perfect amount of time to snorkel and enjoyed a beautiful boat ride back to Cairns. I highly recommend this tour.

This is a MUST. You haven't seen the Great Barrier Reef until you have flown right over it. Awesome views, great snorkling and the ride back on the boat is nice as well. They also feed you pretty well. Got some really great pictures. It was a great price for how much you got.
