Absolutely amazing tour! Only wish it had just been my husband and I... we were surprised to see another couple on the tour with us considering how expensive it was to go.

Great experience, budget list item ticked. Only downside was that it's expensive so couldn't afford a longer trip. Over too quickly

This was an excellent trip, but unfortunately first time round the helicopter had to be aborted as there was a problem with the oil dial rising to a very high level. The pilot acted quickly and professionally and brought us back to base. They tried to repair the helicopter to no avail but late in the afternoon they had sent down a new helicopter and we eventually got on our trip over barrier reef- well worth it. A personal thank you to pilot for bringing us back safely
