          A must do experience
          This trip was amazing. The scenery was breathtaking and the food was delicious. If I’d have known how good the chocolate was I’d have bought more. The day was incredible value for money, so many highlights. It is a must do if visiting Hobart.

          Full on and excellent programme. Our guide Mark was excellent. My friend left her jacket on the bus but upon tracking them down early next morning, they delivered the jacket back to our hotel in time before we left for the airport. 10/10 for customer care. Highly recommended indeed.

          Incredible Bruny Island - Tasmania
          Truly enjoyable tour. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, fun and patient. He customised our tour with a balanced mix of breathtaking landscapes, as outdoor activities, and tasting of the local produces of Bruny Island (fresh oysters, local honey, local cheeses). This great balance allowed our 4-years old son to be fully involved and enjoy together with us the nature (including spotting the white wallabies) and the food. Highly recommended for any age brackets.

          Beautiful Bruny with Tassie Tours Tasmania and Andrew!!
          Amazing day out with Tassie Tours Tasmania! We had done Port Arthur the day before with Andrew and did Bruny on the back of that because Andrew was fantastic!! Most incredibly delicious seafood chowder we have ever had from Hotel Bruny. Best oysters ever with wasabi cream from Get Shucked! Amazing cheese from Cheese and Beer Co. Picked up some Black Pudding beer as well!! I could survive on Bruny with just these 2 places! And of course the scenery was breathtaking as you would expect. Thanks again Andrew you are awesome!!

          Thanks to our tour guide Alex for a terrific day. We were provided with a lovely mixture of outdoor activity and the history background of many of the places we visited with lots of laughter along the way. 😀

          Bruny Island day trip
          Andrew was amazing. Other than some scenic spots, he showed us historical sights, choclate, wine, beer, oyster farms. He managed people and time well and along with his excellent commentary (he spent his summer holidays and long weekends here growing up) the trip was a breeze.

          Bruny, a great day
          The trip with Andrew was excellent. I don’t think you can beat a driver with passion for the area and local knowledge. Andrew had plenty and ran the day smoothly. Also Lachlan provided very useful advice which assisted with the choice of Tassie Tours.

          Awesome experience with them
          I highly recommend this company. The customer experience they provide is exceptional. They prioritize customer satisfaction over financial gain. I have participated in four tours in Hobart, three of which were with this company. I had an extremely enjoyable time on these tours. I would particularly like to commend their outstanding tour guide, Mark. He consistently goes above and beyond to ensure that everyone has a memorable experience. He is passionate about his job and takes the time to interact with each participant individually. His extensive knowledge extends beyond Tasmania and encompasses a wide range of global topics. Furthermore, the customer service provided by the office staff is exceptional. They are understanding, thoughtful, and always willing to assist.

          Beautiful Bruny Island highlights in a day.
          Lovely full day tour - covered all the highlights on this small island with an informative and educational talk. Great to arrive at the pub for lunch having pre-booked our meals, so no wait time. Bus got us back into Hobart before real peak hour hit (despite many late to the bus - not only for morning pickup but also on the island).

          Our tour guide (Jodi) was amazing, knowledgeable and friendly. We had a wonderful day in Bruny island and saw lots of wallabies and white wallabies as well as breathtaking scenery of Bruny. Lunch at pub was delicious and super filling. Thanks Jodi for the amazing day. I highly recommend this tour! 🖤

        Excellent service at a great price. Pickup at several locations, mine being at Battery Point. On time, very comfortable minibus, great driver / guide who pointed out the notable landmarks and history as we were heading to Port Arthur . I was going directly to Hobart airport after Port Arthur, asked the driver, no issues at all l, dropped off right at the terminal. This shuttle service had an add-on at no charge which was a highlight, Tasman National Park lookouts and BlowHole. Highly recommend to anyone looking to go to Port Arthur from Hobart 👍

        The tour itself was great, we were able to see so many beautiful places on our way to Port Arthur and learnt the stories behind them. Our tour guide Mark was on time, and I can tell he is a very passionate person.

        However, I don't feel I was welcomed during this trip. From the beginning of the trip, our tour guide was friendly to everyone, knowing their names and having conversations. I was ignored from the beginning till the end of the trip. To be honest, I don't really care. What frustrated me is he never responded to my 'thank you', 'hi', 'bye', but having chat with my friend only. I just wonder if there's anything he doesn't like about me.

        During the trip, as I mentioned earlier that he is a very passionate person who wants to know about the world and cultures. I wasn't following his conversations with other passengers the whole time but what he said about Chinese tourists caught my attention every time. Because I'm also Chinese.

        I heard from him about how Chinese can't drive, and Chinese tourists are always late, and I think he probably thinks all Chinese are like that (at least from how I processed his words). Nowadays, discussing this with other people (white) at work/in public is inappropriate. Especially if there's an Eastern Asian-looking tourist on your tour who can clearly hear what you say and understands English.

        Mark was a fantastic tour guide to Port Arthur. He was entertaining and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Port Arthur. He also had an amazing gift of narrating the historical events and engaging everyone on our tour bus in a way I have not seen from other tour guides. In addition to the historic site, the side trip to the Remarkable Cave really added something different and very interesting to tour.

        This was a great day out. Very informative driver. Great spots to stop along the way. You really need 3-4 hours to see everything and go on the River cruise at Port Arthur.
        However! The ride back was not pleasant..
        The driver was driving 10klm over the speed limit, swerving over the road and around the bends. He had the music turned up very load and fist pumping to the music. He seemed more concerned about himself having a good time than the safety of the bus load of passengers.
        This was needless to say a very stressful drive back being thrown from side to side the entire way.

        Tassie Tours were on time for our pick up. We were warmly welcomed onto the bus by our Driver Guide. Ally is a very enthusiastic ambassador for Tassie Tours and passed her knowledge onto the passengers on the bus. We were asked if we wanted a "comfort stop". She is very well versed in the local history and that of Port Arthur. She was a pleasure to listen to. I really enjoyed the day and 4 hours was ample time to look around Port Arthur and get something to eat.

        This is a day trip I had booked over the internet with Tassie Tours. For pickup can be selected 8 different points. Mine was the second one at a hotel in Battery Point. I was there early, but so was the driver of the minibus, friendly Maddy. I was also the only customer by then, but more got on at another hotel and most came on board at the Information Centre. By 10.30 we had left Hobart, arriving in Port Arthur at noon.

        All in all we had 4 hours at the former convict colony, before returning at 4pm. Maddy, who told us that this were her first day in this job, was a safe driver and gave us interesting informations on the way, often interspersed with personal experiences, having grown up in this part of the world.

        Bus was on time for departure from Hobart and arrived back as scheduled. The driver Anni was friendly, patient and informative. Stopped at the lookouts as listed in the tour. Shuttle was convenient as it departed a little later than the organised tours, but note you need to buy your own ticket to the Port Arthur historic site.

        Very welcoming. A safe bus trip with a good driver. It was very informative with extra little side stops to make the day more enjoyable. Kept exactly to time. A good weather day made the day just delightful strolling around this historical place. Food was expensive however that’s nothing to do with the bus company - you can bring your own if you want to. A good day all round, Thank you

        We booked a day trip with Tassie Tours and our guide was the lovely Jordi. She explained a lot about convicts life on the way to Port Island. Port Island has beautiful old buildings and sad stories behind many of them. The site is well maintained with colorful trees and flowers. We thoroughly enjoyed the ferry ride which was included in the entrance fee. After our site visit Jordi took us to the remarkable cave.
        I love the taste of Lavender lush milk chocolate bought from Port Arthur Lavender cafe.
        I recommend Tassie Tours for a hassle free touring experience in Hobart. We wouldn't know much details if we did our own trip.

        I thoroughly enjoyed the shuttle ride to and from Port Arthur. The commentary was exceptional, with lots of history facts I would not of learnt if I had driven from Hobart to Port Arthur. The driver remembered everyone by name and interacted with everyone. I 100% recommend using this service.
