Nick was the guide on our walking tour. The weather wasn’t good, but he made the best of the situation. He’s very knowledgeable and I learned a lot about Battery Point and Hobart in general. I would definitely recommend this tour.

We had an excellent 2 hours with Judy. Very informative and entertaining. Well worth it. Fast pace but saw a good portion of Hobart close to the docks. Heard about some of the history of the area.
