Excellent trip. The guide has extensive knowledge about the history of the city. A must visit for travel enthusiasts. The entire trip was very close to nature.

This is a fantastic introduction to Hobart and its surrounds. The days are varied with activities that are enjoyable and memorable, some I wouldn’t have organised myself but am glad I participated as I was surprised by how interesting they were! Most evenings are free for you to do what you want. The included meals are delicious, there are 3+ hours of driving some days but the scenery along the way and hiking destinations make it worthwhile.

This was a very interesting trip to discover the parts of Tasmania accessible in a day from Hobart. It was great not having to pack and unpack every day.

Quite nice tour with some amazing sceneries. However get ready to take out more money for all your lunches and diners. Also keep in mind that there is a lot of driving and do not except long walks.
