Whitsunday boats on TripAdvisor
When planning your vacation, it can be a great idea to get a second opinion, especially if you don't know any locals. Advertisements, salespeople and great photography only go so far, and it’s nice to hear from someone firsthand what they thought about a particular boat or tour.
TripAdvisor is a great forum for guests to leave their opinions and feedback, giving each an authentic critique uninfluenced by marketing, sales or agendas. TripAdvisor is a highly respected forum for this kind of feedback, and definitely a good place to check before booking your trip. It allows you to get a bit more insight about the boat, the crew and the food when you’re researching which boat might be right for you.
While getting a second opinion can be good when deciding on which boat trip is right for you, reviews can be misleading and it can be difficult to tell whether someone leaving a negative review indeed had a poor experience and whether that was any fault of the tour operator. While TripAdvisor can be a good tool to get honest feedback, you may not get all the sides of the story out. For example, if you see a negative review and the issue was poor weather prevented them from flying to the region, and they aren’t issued a refund by the tour operator, you have to ask why they didn’t prepare with travel insurance and read the fine print on the company’s refund policy.
Booking with a local agent is your best bet
