        The Derwent Experience… so worth it with Sam!
        Great day with our guide Sam, from The Derwent Experience; from the New Norfolk Distillery where we sampled a variety of rums, gins and liqueurs, then a visit to Salmon Ponds, the oldest trout and salmon hatchery in the southern hemisphere where we enjoyed plump Tassie cherries and a soft sparkling wine, to a tasty cheese platter and selection of 6 wines at Stefano Lubiana estate, a sixth generation of family farmers. We then visited Richmond (quaint country town) and walked the oldest working stone bridge in Australia (built by convicts in 1823), then experienced the distillery flavours at the Charles Reuben estate who also produce three wines and we loved their Riesling and finished with a paddle of craft beers at the Last Rites Brewing Company (ps: only open on Fridays at this time). There was also little bits in between that added to the experience (like good local coffee to start the day, antiques and shops) plus Sam has good local knowledge, is friendly, easy, and great company. So totally recommend ; an unforgettable day… you must do it!

        Wine, cider cheese experience not to be missed
        A wonderful experience led by our knowledgable and personable tour guide Sam. Nice mix of wine, cider, and cheese snacks all put together in a 6 to 7 hour ride through the Derwent river area. Sam provided just the right combination of interesting commentary while also allowing enough quiet time for our group to chat and get to enjoy each other's company. Highly recommend.

        Great day out
        Great day getting to taste a variety of drinks in smaller and more unique distilleries and wineries. Sam is very knowledgeable and made the day fantastic. At all the tastings we got to learn a lot about the place and the hosts were very welcoming. A nice cheese platter was also enjoyed. Ensure you have a good breakfast before heading off.

      We had a wonderful and memorable day tour with Sam from Derwent Experience at the Cradle Mountain today. The tour was enjoyable and the sceneries were breathtaking at this world heritage site. Sam is very professional in his business, and we strongly recommend travellers to book this tour with him.

      The tour is just amazing and totally worth it. When you really wanna see one of Tasmania's jewels of nature, do the tour. Sam tells you many informative and interesting facts and you can spend so much time doing hikes and enjoying the beauty of nature at Mount Cradle wich is just stunning. The day ends with a lovely dinner and you'll get home exhausted but totally happy. So if you really wanna see what Tassie is really like, I can really recommend doing the Mount Cradle Tour with Sam.

      WOW.
      This a great day trip from Hobart.
      The drive was great. Sam our tour guide and owner of the business was very friendly Stops on the way there and on return made the trip seem shorter.
      Stops for breakfast and Dinner were excellent.
      This is the only day trip from Hobart to Cradle Mountain and it was so enjoyable.
      I highly recommend this day with Derwent Experience.

      This has been my best tour in my entire life, Sam is really lovely taking care of every detail. It’s admirable that he does this tour from Hobart because it’s very far away, I think it’s excellent value for money, it’s an intense day, it must be tiring for Sam to arrive late every night after the tour, but with all his effort he makes it possible for all of us to enjoy.
      Even being far away Sam left us enough time to enjoy that wonderful mountain and its landscapes. I also met wonderful people on this tour with very good vibes. I will never forget this day, thank you Sam for making me and many other people happy, I will be eternally grateful to you.

      It was a blast! The almost 400 km drive absolutely has been worth it! Sam was an excellent guide and gave a lot of hints for the Cradle mountain hike up to Marion’s Lookout. We were hiking in a group of 3 which was awesome.
      I also loved the stops for breakfast and dinner where a table was reserved and we got in touch and exchanged our experiences.
      I absolutely recommend this trip with Sam out from Hobart.

      This was an amazing tour from Hobart to Cradle Mountain (UNESCO). This tour offers the unique experience to visit and hike Cradle Mountain all the way from Hobart without me having to rent and drive on the other side of the road myself. Our guide Sam is knowledgeable about all things Tasmania and maintained a good balance of taking rest stops and getting us to where we wanted to be. Highly recommend The Derwent Experience!

      Sam is the best driver in Tasmania and his van is absolutely comfortable. Although the tour was started at 6am, we slept very well while he drove the car for us.

      He knew lots of interesting photo spots like great lake and ox farm. He was very friendly and explained everything about the tour(ETA, route, what's good at there) and answered every question we asked.
      We were not native English speakers so we're not used to Aussie accents, but Sam spoke to us with clear accent and slowly so that we can understand well. The cradle mountain was so beautiful and wombats were so cute!

      Thanks a lot, Sam. It was really lucky to meet you as our tour guide. 😀😀

      The driver Sam was very engaging and caring about having a successful excursion. The travel time to a from Hobart and back is a strain but not to be avoided for one-day trip. The music and commentary on the bus was great. Highly recommend.

      Lucky enough we have Sam's trip to make my sister's dream come true to visit Cradle Mountain from Hobart (he said he was the only one :)). Despite its exclusive, Sam is such a fantastic tour guide, very caring. He prepare us very yummy Tassie apples, sunscreen, etc. This is my second time to Cradle Mountain. Last time I took the shuttle bus right from the first station and thanks to Sam, I know I made a big mistake! Sam ignored the first station and led us passing by the stream and even drink it! Really exotic! The trip is also remarkable by the food together with the team at breakfast and dinner. Really really cozy and yummy!!! Sam is the point :)
