One more on the Reef -- If you could pick just ONE...

by AlisonMT Online Now Oct 24, 2006 at 6:15 PM

I've been reading through some of the previous posts and think I can relate most to the one entitled "ARGH - too many options!" :-) My head is spinning!! Hubby and I are about to journey to Australia next month, with 4 days in Cairs. Our hotel (the Hilton) has directed us to a company called The Tour Specialists that offers tours of the Great Barrier Reef. Has anyone had any experience with this company? Their website is

What we REALLY want is advice on the best tour we can take without breaking the bank that allows us to snorkel with a guide and preferably does not have hundreds of people on the boat...the smaller ones appeal much more to us, but we like some of the amenities of the larger ones. I feel so clueless. If you could pick just one, what would it be??

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Also -- the Hilton recommended we book in advance but I read a lot of posts saying we should wait til we arrive. Is it a risk if we don't have anything booked upon arrival??

I look forward to your responses!
