I chose this trip because I knew nothing about Hobart or its history. This was the perfect tour to do. Our guide John was very knowledgeable and had a great love for Hobart. The highlight was Battery Point a very interesting and beautiful area of Hobart filled with old seafarers cottages. I learnt things from John on the tour I would have never discovered wandering around on my own. Highly Recommended.

The history of Hobart is wonderful, and the guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. However when he stopped to speak the traffic noise was so loud very little could be heard. The guide did not pick up the verbal clues when there was little interest in what he was saying. Concept and content great, but delivery very poor.

Dear Andrew, We are very sorry to hear that the tour was below your expectations and thank you for clarifying that the issue was that you couldn't hear the guide properly. Generally speaking our guides use microphones for groups with more than 2 people, to ensure that everyone can hear. We are happy to look into this further if you could let us know what day you went on tour. You can reach me us on 03 6234 5550 or info@hobarthistorictours.com.au. Kind regards, Christina and the Hobart Historic Torus Team

This was pretty dull, we attended two pubs and looked at another where we were discouraged from having a drink. Dum de dum!

Hi there, We are sorry to hear you found our Old Hobart Pub Tour boring. The tour is designed to showcase the history of Hobart and some of it's old pubs. A lot of the information provided is about the alcohol history of Hobart and some of the characters that were involved. It is more of a tour than a "pub crawl". If you would like to talk to us in more details, you can reach us on info@hobarthistorictours.com.au or 03 6234 5550. Kind regards, Christina and the Hobart Historic Tours team
