      A very nice day out
      A very enjoyable trip, in a small group. A minivan ride from Launceston to Cradle Mountain, and then a choice of hikes. The walks were a little challenging in places, but manageable for most people of reasonable fitness. It was nice to meet people in a small group, and it was a very enjoyable day.

      Not designed for people over 55yo or those with restricted mobility.
      Wasn't happy with the tour, couldn't manage the walk to the lookout. Thought the National Park was poorly maintained and the walking track up to the lookout was very unsafe, with no railings. We ended up turning back halfway up due to this & then had to wait some time for everyone to return. The stop at Honeymoon Bay toveat lunch was shabby, limited seating. Wouldn't recommend this tour. Tour bus was also a little shabby & in need of some repair

      Hobart has a lot of experiences to have a whole day tour is well worth your time as you get to know about the history and see so
      The trip was excellent and our driver was really informed and caring . The boat trip at Port Arthur was good and learned about Port Arthur's history by the driver and on site

      Great scenery, but local produce was dearly missed!
      We hiked through incredible scenery, with knowledgeable information from our tour guide, Nick. However, after that, we were really disappointed to find out that going to Freycinet Marine Farm to sample local seafood, and going to Kate's Berry Farm had both been dropped and instead we were taken to an expensive wine tasting venue.

      Nice hike for nice view
      It is quite tiring for someone who does not hike a lot, however the view is worth the hike for sure. The tour guide was knowledgeable, loved all the local information provided by Heather.

      Great Guide
      Great tourist guide very informative on time and very happy. Port Arthur was very beautifully maintained with lovely gardens. I however did not get the hush condition the prisoners were living under. The lavender farm was very nice but we were too early for the full bloom of the flower.

      A must do in Tasmania.
      It was well worth the visit. Our tour guide, Heather is very knowledgeable and enjoyed showing us around the island. We were fortunate enough to spot lots of wombats and wallabies on our trip.

      I was always going to go to Port Arthur on a trip to Hobart and this was a great way to do it.
      This was a great way to get to see Port Arthur and soak up some extra into on the way. I wasn’t particularly excited about the clifftop walk that was on the agenda but actually I loved it . Port Arthur is amazing but be aware it is a big site with a lot to read so give yourself plenty of time. One version of this tour includes a visit to the devils - this is a good option if you aren’t super interested in convict history. If you are a nerd like me though you need lots of time at Port Arthur! Save the furry devils for a different day. Our guide was Heather and she was exceptional - very knowledgeable and efficient.

      Poor customer service on phone
      Very rude female customer service agent on the phone. Had asked about free cancellation and was told to look up the terms and conditions myself as she wasn’t going to read them out to me. I didn’t expect her to, but didn’t appreciate being spoken to in that tone. Not a good way to get customers!

      Fantastic day tour to Wineglass Bay
      Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about everything from the areas we visited, Wineglass Bay & the Freycinet National Park, to animals & plants. Fantastic day, stopping in all the right places for our convenience. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

      Highlight trip of my time in Hobart
      This day trip was the highlight of my time in Hobart. The bus was very comfortable, and the driver/tour guide Trevor was so knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. There was plenty of time to spend at all the stops along the way to Port Arthur and back again to Hobart. We were able to pet and feed kangaroos, amazing! The Unzoo was wonderful, and seeing a Tasmanian devil was so interesting. I definitely recommend taking this trip. The sights in the Devil's Kitchen was spectacular as well.

    A very long bus drive which was broken up by a waste of time 20 min stop at Huonville at the start of the day which could have been added to time spent at the spots you paid money to go to.
    Tahune has nowhere near recovered from the 2019 bushfires so the vegetation was sparse and the airwalk very disappointing. I would advise people not to bother going there for some years. Insufficient time spent at location to enable all activities to be completed.
    The Hastings cases was a good tour with an informative guide, The Thermal Pool is average considering the thermal pool is basically a heated pool. The short walk from the pool was ok but nothing special.
    Long drive back to Hobart was broken by the driver stopping to buy some apples whilst indicating you would not be able to take them home with you due to border restrictions but indicated perhaps someone could buy a bag for everyone to share. Perhaps the tour company could fork out the measly $3 a bag to facilitate such an option.
    Other issues was it was the only time in our week in Hobart that we had to wear masks.

    This was such a fun day! Our tour guide Nick was amazing, knowledgeable and you could tell he loves what he does! We felt safe and taken care of the entire day and learnt so much about Tasmania’s history as well as the native flora and wild life. Well worth the money and was a terrific experience!

    This tour was an unexpected day in Tasmania (booked just two days before). Huw was an energetic and informative guide with a great sense of humor. The caves were spectacular and the air walk was a fun adventure! Huw kept us engaged with local history and practical information about Tasmania. He clearly loves his home! It was a fine way to spend a day outside of Hobart.

    My partner and I have been to a lot of caves in our time and we rate this one quite highly with well formed stalactites and some stalagmites. Yes this is a long trip from Hobart but is broken up with the sky walk and a lunch stop before the caves. Our guide was very informative and friendly. I rate this as a must do if you like caves.

    It was a long day and lots of driving but well worth it. I have some mobility issues and chose not to do the sky walk but still had a lovely walk down the the river and a very nice coffee at the information centre.
    My adult nieces did do the walks and said that they were fantastic. Nicholas the guide was very knowledgeable and looked after us well, except for feeding us pepper berries lol.
    The Hasting caves were what I came for and they were excellent. The tour guide was so patient with me and even got me out a chair to sit for a minute mid cave tour, so lovely of her.
    Such a beautiful cave system well worth all the steps.

    This was an excellent full day tour of three great events. It's a fairly long drive to the Huon Valley through Kingston but very lovely, lots to see. Keep in mind that the Skywalk is about a 2 hour walk on this tour and that there is a lot of steps. You need to be fairly fit and a regular walker. It was a brisk walk but you don't have to do all of it , you could sit in the cozy kiosk and enjoy bush views or just do a short walk and go up to the canterlever part. There are also two suspension bridges as well and the skywalk is very high up. All very safe.

    The thermal pool is a fun swim. 28 degrees, so warm in but cold underfoot. Very hot showers when changing and open fires for warming up, great fun. Be brave!

    The Caves are close by and magnificent. Lots of steps but absolutely worth the trip. Very safe and talented tour guide.
    A really fun active day, we'll worth the money. Take a packed lunch and plenty of nibbles. 😁

    Small groups, great guide/driver, lovely day out walking in nature, crossing high bridges and rivers. Hastings cave guide very knowledgeable and great to see so many different formations. A nice treat at end, passing by to get apples from a local farm (bring some coins). Thank you!

    A 35 minute drive inland from Geeveston brings you to the Tahune Air Walk and other adventures. We started with the Airwalk that takes you across the treetops ending with a Cantilever hanging out towards the Huon River for a lovely view, even on a rainy day and with the cantilever moving it's well worth a visit. Can also recommend the Swinging Bridges Walk and Huon Pine Walk.

    This is such a fantastic place to visit. It is so well worth the drive. The staff are so welcoming and helpful. I was unable to walk the 100 steps to the entrance and then 70 steps back. So, one of the staff drove me to the entrance on the buggy. The walk was so wonderful, and it is elevated so high from the ground. The different vantage points are so great, and they offer unforgettable panoramic views. Well worth the entrance fee. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
