Four of us (early 60s) thoroughly enjoyed our Mt Wellington Winter Walk with Brenton and Daniel. They collected us from our city hotel at 9 on a cool but clear morning. We started about 930 and walked for a couple of hours up gently rising terrain with some steeper parts but all quite manageable with a reasonable degree of fitness (whilst we walk a bit we aren’t experienced hikers). They then whisked us up to the summit where the views are spectacular but be warned that it’s much windier and colder there! We then stopped at The Springs for good hot coffee from the cafe and an excellent picnic lunch produced by the boys of great bread, delicious leg ham, salad and extras. Back at our hotel about 230 after a perfect morning. The guys are engaging, clearly tailor their walks to their clients’ ability and provide some fascinating commentary about the geology, ecology and history of the mountain and its secrets and lots of interesting stuff about Hobart and Tassie history. We loved it!

We spent a number of wonderful days touring with See Tasmania all over - all custom to our interests and abilities
Daniel was enthusiastic and always prompt, knew the right places to take us to as he grow up exploringTasmania, and knew enough facts and history to keep us interested but not buried in facts. We asked about the rules of cricket and he explained it well enough that we’re interested in watching some matches. He was so knowledgeable about Tasmania and flexible that we could quickly change plans with the weather as he could offer new and even better options so we saw what we really hoped to see instead of just what we knew to ask for. He took us to some stunning locations with hardly anyone else around. He also went out of his way for us taking us to the grocery store at the end of the day on more than one occasion. We were well-taken care of.
We knew how hard it was to find a platypus in the wild but still hoped as it had been a lifelong dream. Daniel did not give up on it and found us the Grail of our trip, a platypus sighting.

5 friends went with See Tasmania to Walls of Jerusalem for 3 days 2 night hiking/camping trip. Out 3 guides (for 5 people) were amazing. They carried our tents, food, etc and all we had to carry was our clothes and sleeping bag, which was provided by the company. We had such a great time, and they were very caring for me, the slow walker. We were blessed with great weather and everything was superb and we had a lot of fun. Would go with Daniel and Brenton anytime again. Thanks guys.

From the moment our tour guides Daniel & Brenton picked us up you new the day was going to be a relaxing and enjoyable day!...Our informative and friendly guides walked us around the painted cliffs and many lookouts on the northern tip of Maria Island.. A beautiful lunch provided and regular spotting of native wildlife along the way..

I would highly recommend this tour for a great day trip.

(This is an unprompted write-up, written solely as an appreciation to our tour guides).

Imagine you are tourist guides cooked up for 6 full days in a SUV with 3 demanding, well-travelled, cost conscious Singaporean retirees on their first tour of Tasmania. That’s the challenge facing Daniel and Kurt from See Tasmania. We had always relied on big tour operators. So, it was a gamble, after surveying the net, that we decided on See Tasmania, a small outfit. Their replies to our enquiries suggested sincerity and dedication. They are Tasmania specialists. Strong points - but still a gamble.

But it paid off handsomely.

Five adults (3 travelers, 2 guides) separated by 40 years in age had to live in such a manner. We would be struggling to keep up with running commentaries, however, witty; we needed conversation rather than commentary; engagement rather than orders, laughter, give and take, the blurring of the guide and the guided. In a confined space an uneasy relationship would ruin the whole trip. How did Daniel and Kurt succeed?

The most important thing is that these guys absolutely love Tasmania. They grew up here, worked on the mainland, and returned to the island. In all our conversations, their deep affection of the land shone through. Love deepens and expands oneself and infects others. That love kept us engaged.

The next important thing is that Kurt and Daniel just love what they do. They are intrepid travelers in their own right, so their job is an endless vacation. They will regale you with their adventures in Asia, Europe, little known parts of Asia (Kyrgyzsomething, Assam. Assam? Who goes to Assam? And plans to return!) and the Middle East. They have travelled rough and they have travelled wide. We guess their previous jobs must have educated them on the deficiencies of big operators, so they are attentive to the needs of travelers. A tour guide sipping his coffee in his long bus while his charges wander in the forest is not an uncommon sight. In contrast, Kurt and Daniel are engaged in what you do. They did the entire trek with us at the Freycinet National Park, Dove Lake and the Nelson Falls. This is a tough job to be continually engaged. So, while we marveled at the Bays of Fire and the beach at Strahan, they dipped to refresh themselves in the Indian Ocean. Perfect synergy!

Local knowledge is important. Intimate knowledge more so. By focusing their considerable energies on just one island, and because lovers always want to know more of the object of their desire, they are very well informed. Tasmania is huge and wild and varied so nobody can claim expertise in all or even most of it. But, either Kurt or Daniel, or both, knew the horrors at Port Arthur, the transition of a mining town, the aboriginal settlements, the hardest trek, seasonal weather, how a bush fire destroyed and rejuvenated a small town, flora and fauna in the forest, the little museum, the best local beer (Little River!), best place for a scallop pie, the last ferry back, etc., etc. They are full of surprises but if they didn’t know, they let you know they don’t. No BS.

Small is beautiful. Because they run a tight outfit, their costs are low. You don’t get the waste and hidden cost of a half-filled long bus. Small is flexible. You can change your schedule within reason if the weather took a turn or you were tired. And, so it was with us when we skipped the steam train and wondered at the tessellated pavement at Eaglehawk Neck.

Knowledge, experience and flexibility are all important. But at the end of the day, you need love and sincerity. And when you are on the road for so long in unpredictable weather, careful driving.

See Tasmania is a young, small company in size (we think that’s why they try harder) but big in heart. It is ambitious in the best sense of the word. That means they want to succeed by being very good at what they do; in this case, focusing on giving a very good all-round experience at an affordable price. Catch them before they get big! As for us, we will return next year and enjoy the other bits of Tasmania with these two mates again.

The luxury of being on a smaller.,semi private style tour was not lost on us,we very much appreciated the size and the intimacy of the smaller vehicle and group.
Both boys were on board as they were doing some promotional work the day we went up mt wellinington and home via the cascade brewery. The depth of geological and geographical knowledge combined with local history was very thorough and detailed . A perfect day of weather left us with a great day and good memories of the trip and mountain,,,thank you.

We did the Maria island tour with Brenton and Daniel and had a great time. Brenton and Daniel are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Maria island and provide a wonderful tour (in fact most of Tasmania and gave us some tips on where to go on our travels).

They did hotel pickup, and then on the drive to the ferry provided an interesting history of Tassie and Maria island. The tour of the island was enjoyable with a good mix of information and quiet time to just enjoy the sights, as well as the wombats (so many!!!). The food provided was amazing, with our lunch of crispy skinned salmon maybe the best meal of our trip, and afternoon tea (wine and bushpepper cheese) was great.

Overall a great tour with two knowledgeable and friendly guides (they were so accommodating they even offered to stop by a bakery on the way home to allow us to try a curried scallop pie).

Can't believe I am the first one to review this excellent trip! When I found this tour in my search for a pack-free hike to the Walls of Jerusalem, it all sounded too good to be true - I have done organised treks in many other parts of the world but this was the first in my own country, and I was slightly apprehensive. But everything on this tour turned out to be just as advertised, and sometimes better. On days 1 and 3 you do need to carry all your clothes, rain gear and other personal items you may require during the 3 days, plus the sleeping bag and liner which they provide, but the 2 guides take care of the rest. Brenton and Daniel are true professionals, patiently answered all my questions in great detail before and after booking, and worked tirelessly during the 3 days to ensure we had the best experience possible, including in some rather challenging conditions (eg horizontal rain and snow at the campsite!). Not exactly the Indian princess style camping experience if that's what you are used to, but I do recommend this tour to anyone who doesn't want to 'rough it' too much without needing any of the 5-star luxury offered by big companies.

Day trip from Hobart to Maria Island was wonderful. Had a fabulous day bush walking, learning about MI history, seeing the beautiful wildlife. Lunch was great inside the Mess Hall. Great day out.
