Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just finished a 4 night 5 day Walls of Jerusalem hike. While the hiking circuit is half the distance of the Overland you make up for it by being able to do all the side hikes. Best yet we did not have the hordes of the OT on this hike. TH guides Jack and Louis did a great job. Very knowledgeable on flora and fauna. Pace was just right. The food fantastic with a great blend of fresh and dehydrated. Stop off for the pub lunch topped it off. Great job Tasmania Hikes.

HI Tony, I am so glad that you had a great time in the Walls and thank you for your review. It is truly, a magical place. Our extended tour version gets you into those wilder places that few tread! Regards Stan.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable multi-day hike on Maria Island. Our very lovely guide, Lucy, provided a couple of different itinerary options and we decided as a group (of six) where we’d hike/the route we’d take each day.
Haunted Bay was gorgeous and well worth the steep climb to get there. We swam in Reidle Bay’s crystal blue water. There was a ridiculous amount of tame wildlife. (Kangaroos, wallabies, bandicoots, echidnas, and lots of wombats.) Darlington is picturesque and has layers of history. Painted Cliffs and Fossil Cliffs/quarry worth a side track.
Of note, the meals are not gourmet but they are served directly to your lap. The website reads; “Your meals are of fresh local produce with 3 course dinners.” however “Your 2-course meals will be simple, but filling.” would be a more accurate description. Our evening meals were pasta with a whiff of salmon, cheesy risotto, and BBQ (salads, snags, and burger patties). Lunches were tuna and cheese wraps. Desserts were excellent. Sampson’s signature morning tea/coffee in bed was highly appreciated. BYO tipple. The bagnum of wine was a good volume and minimised weight and rubbish.
A couple of the walks were very challenging in parts requiring greater than average fitness/dexterity and as there’s only one guide, there isn’t an option for the group to split into hikes for different fitness/injury levels.
There are no showers at French’s Farm. Darlington has one cold water outdoor (ie not private) shower.
The safari tents with stretcher beds were basic but cosy. Unfortunately we didn’t get to stay in the Penitentiary Cell in Darlington.
Four days seemed like a long time but on the ferry on the way home, we wished we were staying longer.
Thanks for a memorable and fun trip Lucy, Sampson, Jack, Ester, and Stan.

Brilliant trip with Tasmanian Hikes on their Overland Track walk in Dec 2023z Communication was excellent in the lead up to the trip with Senna and Stan being so helpful and informative. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly, they added to the experience in such a memorable way. Both Fraser and Louie were extremely professional and their knowledge of the track was much appreciated. Food was excellent and nourishing, and it was lovely to finish the trip with a lunch with Senna. The guides catered to the needs of the group at all times and the sights on the track are unmatched. Memories to last a lifetime and Tas Hikes is highly recommended for a Tasmanian adventure!

In January I marked my 50th birthday with a solo, guided Overland tour with Tasmanian Hikes.
It was perfect for me to circuit break my life and routine as a mum.
My guides were fantastic they allowed me the independence I needed to feel accomplished, and the support I needed to feel safe. Josh and Charlotte brought experience and humour with a maturity that respected the landscape and the surrounds.I loved getting to connect with my fellow travellers and the guides alike.
The group size was small which suited my needs to walk independently and have space for myself.
Tasmanian hikes are a brilliantly run company with personal touches that make you feel like they are invested in your experience.
The food was delicious, and all prepared lovingly to meet energy and nutrition requirements.
It may take me another 10 years before I embark on another adventure but I will not hesitate to book with Tasmanian Hikes.

Awesome experience with Tasmanian Hikes for the Overland Track. Everything well organized and made my experience so enjoyable. The hired equipment was without fault. Food was delicious and amazing every day and every effort made to have it piping hot and ready to eat pronto fast. Never went hungry! My guides were patient, kind, fun and knowledgeable about the geological history, the cultural history, the different habitats experienced and the native plant and animals. I enjoyed every single moment of my journey and am so grateful to Tasmanian Hikes for this great experience and for the extreme generosity and integrity they showed me as I ended up being the only client and they chose not to cancel this tour. So grateful. So many amazing, impactful and memorable moments lead by the guides. Not enough words to describe the joy it was.

My daughter and I did the overland track with Tasmanian hikes in November 22 with Jack and Josh as our guides. We had a great time. As new hikers we were looked after superbly. Senna helped make sure we had the right gear and went above and beyond to accommodate our flight arrivals. The food was amazing too! Thanks Senna! Jack and Josh were both knowledgeable and made sure we were all ok as we navigated the track. We were lucky to enough to be there during snow which was fantastic to see.

Thanks for making our holiday so special.

Just completed the Maria Island 3 night walk with Tasmania Hikes. Our guide was Stan and base support from Esther. We had four days of great weather, well supported and planned out. Plenty of local and historic insights and stops along the way. Stan very knowledgeable and experienced, even gave us a quiz on the last night to see how much information we could remember! No fuss, basic accommodation and simple food is provided, but very comfortable and no need to carry. The group was given a few options and the right balance of freedom of movement versus structured time was achieved. A great way to relax, meet others in a beautiful environment and take in amazing scenery in a stunning world heritage environment. Highly recommend.

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.
