Fantastic memories

My husband Scott and I had a fantastic day on our tour of the Green Island and Great Reef Pontoon 6/6/15. It was a full day creating fantastic memories we will treasure for a lifetime. Highlights were the parasailing at Green Island truley magestic flying above the waves looking as far as you can to the Island itself and beyond. The staff on the pontoon were quick to help make sure we were well decked out with gear for snorkeling and enouraged us to make the most of our visit in swimming with the fish. We always felt safe , the food was delicious the semi sub was awsome...thanks for the memories Cathie and Scott Jeffs

Dear Natalie and Gene,

Thanks for your terrific service. Both my daughter and myself really enjoyed the two trips booked through Travstar.

What I really appreciated, on perusing the so many day tour options on your website, was the very detailed description of each tour plan, with times and features and itinerary all provided. That was of great assistance.

Thanks again
