I really enjoyed my trip to green island, however, a glitch on my booking on your behalf, as it wasn’t technically a booking although I paid, so when doing the exchange before we left was highly stressful and took over held hour to find then rebook as it wasn’t anywhere to be found. Even with my booking reference abs payment details, no where. So that was highly stressful and embarrassing. How will your company compensate this mistake on your behalf? As I was very disappointed and won’t be booking under your company in the future unless you show some compensation for my stress not to mention my parents aswell, who were visiting Cairns/port douglas Vanessa

Had a fantastic day A lot of people had told me you could use the pool at resort....maybe specify that your patrons cannot. Not all food kiosks open Loved the glass bottom boat Enjoyed the beach... beautiful Cooled off in the little cove by the jetty Very affordable prices at the bar on the boat x

Great day, snorkeling then Snuba with Ben was amazing!! We did the crocodile feeding too (separate to this tour but on green island) if we did it again would pay the extra to do the glass bottom boat as well. Boat was clean, all the crew were wonderful and helpful. Only thing we didn’t really like was the lunch - next time would grab something on the island as the lunch was expensive and only had chicken pieces or beef casserole with a couple of salads. Other than that we couldn’t fault the trip
