Enjoyed a great experience completing The Overland Track with tour company Tasmanian Hikes. Organizing the tour during covid-19 uncertainty was easy thanks to the communication skills of Senna at head office. Tasmanian Hikes provide a gear check to ensure equipment/clothing is suitable. Our guides were Benny and Paul. There professionalism and experience ensured our group of eight were safe and well informed at all times. Briefings on each days duration and terrain were extremely helpful. Tent and sleeping bag provided by Tasmanian Hikes were of the highest standard. The food was fantastic.

We had a great experience with this guided hike on beautiful Maria Island despite a record downpour in the middle of it . Our two guides, Steve and Jack were excellent; resourceful and good humoured, and full of insights into the natural and cultural history of the island which made it come alive for us. The food they produced was wholesome and tasty, washed down with lovely local wine. The packs, sleeping bags etc provided were good quality. While our tents unfortunately leaked in the downpour Steve and Jack were able to set us up instead in one of the old farm buildings at the site enabling a dry sleep. A wonderful walk expertly guided which we thoroughly recommend.

Wonderful week of walking around Freycinet, Maria Island, Cape Hauy, Cape Raoul and Port Arthur. Our guide Stan was excellent, organising and catering for a group of 10, with ages ranging from 57 to 87! Thanks Stan, it was a great trip!

An expertly organised guided walk that went smoothly like a well-oiled machine. We only had to carry our packs on 2 days, which contained our clothes and personal belongings (enough for 4 days) and a few things provided by the company including a liner to go inside the sleeping bag (which was already in the tent when we arrived), a couple of towels and soap, and a head torch. No shower while camping of course, but we were provided with warm water for cleaning, which did help. I was looking forward to a proper shower in Darlington, but unfortunately the showers were closed for renovation at the moment. That said, there was plenty of (cold) running water for personal hygiene at the penitentiary, so no big deal. I was particularly looking forward to seeing the famous Maria Island wombats, and wombats I did see! We happened to be an all-girls team, including 3 of us on the tour, and our guide young Lucy was delightful. Stan was busy working behind the scenes to take care of all the logistics including transportation, accommodation, meals etc, and even found time to take me on a 'grand tour' of the island while my more energetic tour mates climbed up Mt Bishop with Lucy. Senna was industrious 'further behind' the scenes (we didn't get to meet her in person) producing our daily supply of homemade goodies in the form of baked goods, chutneys, desserts etc. Our 3-course dinner each night consisted of pre-dinner drinks and snacks, a sumptuous main course and dessert. The only thing they 'failed' to deliver was Tasmanian devils... :)

We had an AMAZING holiday on the Overland Track, starting 17th Feb this year. We have so many happy memories and we both had a wonderful time, including the friendship, hiking experiences and amazing food Stan prepared each day for us. Big thank you! And of course the views and scenery was abdolutely stunning. We will always remember our Overland Track experience as a treasured and unique opportunity to visit a World Herirage area. Because of Stan's expertise, he could explain so many of the special features of the area. His knowkedge is outstanding. We would strongly recommend this unique holiday.
