"I booked a day tour to the Great Barrier Reef with Travel Freedom, and I honestly can't believe how amazing it was! I was snorkelling with Nemo, next to turtles, and I went diving for the first time! I never thought I would see the reef, and it was so cheap to do so! Thanks to Travel Freedom for their service, which was fast, helpful, and easy!"

Laura Taylor (UK)

"I went to see the Daintree rainforest for a day with Travel Freedom and it was beautiful. It was a very relaxing day and I saw a crocodile. I recommend this tour to anyone with some time in Cairns."

Neke Den Boer (NL)
