Australia trip with Go Beyond

My son, Rex went to Australia with Go Beyond. He had an amazing time. Excellent staff and service. I can't say enough good things about this company. Everything was very well planned and organized, starting with booking the flight through them.
An unforgettable trip! The kids spent time in Sidney and then flew to Whitsunday islands.
The summer before, my son went to the Caribbean with their sister company Action Quest, and spent time on Tortola.
Your child will get memories to last a lifetime.

Quite a Lot

Australia is such a unique place, so it is really hard to actually see it all, but we practically did. Go Beyond's 3 week trip (Reef to Rainforest) showed me both the aboriginal side (The Tjapukai) and the more modern side (things such as the Sydney Opera House), so it was nice and well rounded. The diving was also amazing, the reefs were quite vibrant in the places we went to and there were plenty of sea turtles and sharks. The staff were really nice and would share stories of their other trips and some of the cultures they have experienced. The food was a bit lacking though for the days on land, since we were traveling around all we could really have were sandwiches and other bread related foods. But overall, the food is my only complaint, we had unique activities every day, and that is exactly what I came for.

What would you improve about this program?
Most meals were based on bread (toast, sandwiches, etc), so perhaps a new portable meal could be used.
