09 Nov 2018

Passions of Paradise is the only Cairns tour to receive a 2018 GetYourGuide award for excellence. CEO and co-founder of online travel agent GetYourGuide Johannes Reck said an internal team of destination experts analysed and ranked GetYourGuide's global inventory of 31,000 products in 7500 destinations in key categories and regions.

The ranking took into account the number and quality of reviews and the volume of bookings made through the site. “Travel activities create the long-lasting vacation memories travellers remember most fondly and talk about years later,” Mr Reck said. “The tours recognised in the first annual GetYourGuide Awards for incredible travel experiences have enhanced millions of vacations worldwide, and we are pleased to recognise their contribution in helping travellers truly love where they’re going.”

Passions of Paradise Chief Executive Officer Scotty Garden said the locally-owned company was excited to be one of 200 winners worldwide, with just 22 winning products in Oceania. “Knowing that we scored highly with passenger reviews of our Great Barrier Reef tour is especially gratifying as Passions of Paradise prides itself on excellent personalised customer service,” he said. Passions of Paradise visits the outer Great Barrier Reef daily where passengers can dive and snorkel with diverse marine life in coral gardens before sailing back to Cairns.
