Whitsundays and Fraser tour

Had a great time on the freight train, Kev and crew were great hosts and also had a fantastic time on Fraser Island with the dingo tag along tour. I would recommend both trips to anyone loved it.

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME

Freight Train made viewing the Whitsundays incredible. Wonderfully funny and great crew, meals were outstanding, and of course the reef was beautiful. Would highly recommend to anyone wishing to view the islands! Thanks Kev, Ji, and Jodi!

Super Touren

Für den Preis sind es echt mega Touren. Fraser war mega gut, super organisiert und der Guide Scott wusste echt von was er redet. Auch das Essen war immer frisch und gut. Auch die Whitsundays waren echt cool, das Essen war nicht so frisch zubereitet aber das ist auf einem Segelboot natürlich auch nicht so leicht, außerdem eine sehr coole Segelerfahrung, wäre nur cool gewesen noch mehr über die Inseln zu erfahren. Schnorchel Stopps waren top.
