A Recent Review of this tour

Thank You Darrin! Booked the two day tour for my Norwegian Jewel port days at Yorkey's Knob. Darrin was the best. He kept in constant touch as we prepped for the tour. He was waiting at Yorky's Knob to pick our group for both days. Day 1 Darrin drove us over to Cairns and we were off to the Reef for Snorkeling and Glass bottom boat tour. Day 2 was also a full day visiting the sights around Cairns and the Tablelands. This 2-day tour was the high point of my cruise! Thx again Darrin for a great tour!
