        She should be sacked
        The lady at the pier counter , where you check in for the tour was very unfriendly, I would say even rude, unforgivable in the tour industry, so got off to a very bad start. She should be sacked.

        FUN AND INFORMATIVE
        We had an amazing time on the Port Arthur tour. Our tour guide Mark was exceptionally well informed about Port Arthur and its surrounds. He told numerous factual and fictional stories to keep us entertained throughout our trip. I felt as though I really learnt some great history of this amazing place. Thank you!

        The tour was amazing and surpassed expectations. I would recommend this to anyone. Phil was our guide who kept us well informed of the history of the different areas we passed through. His jokes were great!

        Historical and Amazing!
        We got on our bus with our driver, Collin and we lefty right on time. Collin drove well, was filled with information, and was quite humorous. We arrived in Richmond for a quick stop (bathroom break, quick photo with bridge) and the registers our bus to head to Port Arthur. Once we arrived at Port Arthur, Collin got our tickets, gave us the low down on activities and times, and then walked us in and gave a brief directional this is where this is at talk. We were on our own to enjoy this massive site. There are golf carts to help shuttle folks around who might need a lift. There are docent lead timed tours that are free but tours you need to pay extra for. The food was easy to get and quite good. Their gift shop has wonderful Tasmanian products as well as great Port Arthur items. Bathrooms around area are nice and clean. I would definitely recommend this tour.

        A Must.
        Phil kept up a running commentary with natural history, history of the whole place. He told us of the two centuries old times (a a little of the more recent. He also has some the worst puns I have heard. At the Port Arthur sits he got us inside and gave us a brief orientation, the set us loose. He also helped me get an add-on for the Isle of the Dead. The site is HUGE. I maybe saw a third. The buildings and the site are beautiful but he stories are not. But it is importamnt to understand our history. On the way back we drove through Doo Town (!), stopped at the Tasman Arch and a chocolate outlet. Close to Hobart he detoured to a lookout over the city.

        Light
        Not so good organisation, enough light in spite of the beauty of the nature which is really impressive. It would be great to fulfill l’excursion to fill it with really impressive places to visite

        What a great "Doo Day"
        From the pickup from our hotel to the drop off our driver Colin was the star of the day, with his witty jokes he made the journey to Port Arthur fun fun fun, :-) with lots of historical comment along the way. The whole tour was worth every penny, from time in Port Arthur (lots of history), trip on a boat around Port Arthur to a quick stop in Richmond (beautiful) to another quick stop for ice cream on the way back. I would totally recommend the full day tour. Have fun/enjoy!! Thanks again Colin!

        A very informative journey with beautiful scenery
        Very good day. Port Arthur is very Serene and looks very peaceful. Seeing the buildings you can only imagine what it used to be like. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Would definitely recommend going.

        Nature's artistic work
        Tasmania Arch, Devil's Kitchen and Port Arthur - very interesting sites. But my highlight of the day was the Remarkable Cave, seeing how nature sculptured the landscape. It was windy and drizzling but our guide Jodi did a great job guiding us senior travellers on our private tour. Totally enjoyed my tour.

        Outstanding Experience.
        This is a longer day, but so well worth it. Colin drove the bus and his side gig of being in Music Theater productions certainly added to his ability to make this trip fun! We went several places where we had been the day before, but the information we received had very little repetition. He gave us several hints about things to do and see, and the Port Arthur site was interesting. We did not book the Isle of the Dead, but several who did said it was really interesting. We opted not to go to the Remarkable Cave because we were so enthralled with Port Arthur. I know the cave was pretty, but we couldn't drag ourselves away from the site. Either way, you will not regret this tour, and if you happen to get Colin as your guide, you will love it!

        Loved Richmond and Mt. Wellington
        Evan (rhymes with Heaven) drove our bus to Mt. Wellington, Richmond, and several other sites. He was funny, knowledgeable, and nice. We stopped for hot chocolate at a little eatery and went to an overlook, we thoroughly enjoyed Richmond, and would book this tour again in a heartbeat!

        Self drive rather than bus tour.
        Best recommendation is to not take the bus tour. Drive to the parking area and use the blue shuttle service which is regular and comfortable. Bus tour uses cramped mini buses, uncomfortable, and of little knowledge sharing. 4 hours in a sardine can is not the way to travel.

        We booked tickets to visit Port Arthur Historic Site but due to the port being cancelled by the cruise line we were unable to attend. We contacted Port Arthur Historic site by email and communicated with a lady called Jennifer I found her very helpful she replied very properly letting us know they would provide us with a full refund the money was back on my card within two days. We were very disappointed not to be able to go but have to say the costume service was excellent

      Our cruise ship was diverted from Port Arthur to Hobart and we found this tour on-line. When we arrived at 12:00 the 1:00 tour was sold out but Tim found an additional vehicle and we were off. Tim was a great tour guide throughout. The Richmond gaol, bridge, and town were great from a historical perspective. The sanctuary was a real jewel. We went to see Tasmanian Devils which we saw in great numbers, but we also saw wombats, rare birds, emus, snakes, and were able to feed and touch the kangaroos that were roaming free. It was also good to know that the facility was staffed with volunteers and all the money was being used for animal rescue and rehabilitation.

      Thank you for taking the time to review us. It is great to hear that Tim was able to accommodate you and provide a great experience on our afternoon Bonorong Wildlife with Richmond Tour. We have been taking our guests to Bonorong for many years and it has certainly become one of our favourites!

      We took the excursion from the Holland America Noordam Cruise ship. We were so looking forward to seeing Australian animals. We were however disappointed that many of these species are nocturnal. There were a couple of cages with nice looking birds in them but it was not possible to get good photos. The large cages had very heavy large black wire screens with perhaps one inch squares to look through! No doubt some of these birds could be a danger to humans, but perhpas they could replace the screens in some areas with plexiglass so that we could see and photograph the birds. They provided food which one could feed the wallabies, but they were really lazy and didn't appear too hungry! I did get some photos of a wombat, rabbits, and of course the Tasmanian Devils. The facility is located on a hillside and was difficult to navigate for older folks.

      Thank you for your review and for providing some valuable feedback on Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Bonorong has always been a favourite amongst our guests for many years, notably for their leadership in Wildlife rescue, seabird rehabilitation and for the first in Tas, a purpose built wildlife only veterinary hospital. I can understand you point regarding the photography and we will certainly pass on your suggestions to Bonorong. Unfortunately, the wallabies and kangaroos can be very well fed on busy cruise ship days. Thank you again for taking the time to review us.

      Small bus, so not a massive group, which was good and a chatty driver. An hour or so exploring Richmond, a quaint town with a good ice cream shop! Then, to the wildlife sanctuary to see Tasmanian Devils and echidna. Sadly, the wombats were asleep after a hard day of being looked at. Lots of kangaroos to hand feed and knowledgable guide for the included talk. Worth the trip.

      Very basic service and tour. Always running late. Did not stop or even drive pass the Richmond Bridge. Basically just dropped at Richmond car park and had an hour there. Then taken to sanctuary which was nice. Then taken back to Richmond to pick up others then back to Hobart. Driver friendly and accommodating.

      The wildlife sanctuary was incredible, the passion the staff had was inspirational and it was wonderful to see the animals being treated so well. The sanctuary was the highlight of my time in Tasmania. I bought lots of stuff in the gift shop because I wanted to make sure the sanctuary gets money to keep doing what it is doing.
