We started out early with pick up from our Hotel. It was a little cloudy but a nice day. Our tour manager was young, polite and enthusiastic and so informative. The tour to Port Arthur and other sights were really great and we saw a lot along the way including a quick detour to the Port Arthur Lavender Farm which was really nice. The historic and natural wonders of the area were really interesting. The walk along the cliffs on the Peninsula was a good exercise with lots of photos taken of the scenery. It was good to stop off at historic Richmond on way back too. The bus was full and it was a little bit squashy at the front of the bus as I did not have much leg room but managed to put one leg up on the middle console. The bus air conditioner was not very good so may need a service. Other than that we had a great day and saw a lot.

From beginning to the end of the day, our guide and driver never ceased to amaze us with his in depth knowledge of the State and local knowledge both past and present. A really awesome full and fun day.

We had a fabulous day with Dave being our guide for the day. He was very knowledgeable and nothing was too hard for him. He gave us a lot of information about the places we visited. I would highly recommend this tour.

Lancy Tam | 1 year ago

The trip was amazing. David, the driver was very inviting and caring. He gave us lots of explanation and information on the way which made us know Hobart a lot more. The scenery in the peninsula was gorgeous and the visit to the lavender farm was beautiful. The time in Port Arthur could be longer as it was a bit rush to cover the tour guide's introductory session and the cruise and our own stroll. But David told us what to do first so we didn't miss a lot. Definitely a tour that first time visitors to Hobart should do. We love the last stop up in the hill for a great view of Hobart as a fulfilling finale to the trip.
