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.

I am so glad we did this walk, our guide was informative and had interesting anecdotes.
We were shown buildings that we wouldn't have been able to see on our own.

We loved our end of year work tour. Easy to book, and great customer service. Our guide was fun and very knowledgeable. The walking was broken up into easy sections and followed a nice easy walking route. Would definitely recommend for visitors and locals alike.

What a fantastic experience this was. Di was our tour guide and she was so much fun and a wealth of knowledge.
We had access to some magnificent homes that the public would not be able to access. My wife and i thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It gave us a real appreciation of the city of Hobart. Thanks again!

Diane was outstanding. Her knowledge of the architecture and the history of the city was amazing. It was our first day in Tasmania and the education we received on the tour helped to set the scene for the rest of our visit to this beautiful island.

We did the Old Hobart Pub Tour, and our guide Maggie was absolutely fabulous. My friend and I were lucky enough to have Maggie all to ourselves, and as we walked and talked, she kept pointing out pubs and bars and cafes that she thought would peak our interest for us to come back to.

You could tell she really knew her history and was passionate about the city as well. She kept sharing fun and interesting stories and kept us engaged the whole time.

A good tour guide can make or break your experience, and Maggie definitely made this for us. This is a definite 10/10

Our guide Diane was a spritely and entertaining character who told the story of Hobart in an interesting way. The stories are an excellent introduction for first time visitors to Hobart. We did the 1 1/2 hour tour that took us from the wharf area, past the older buildings in the CBD and finished in Salamanca Place. We loved viewing the lovely sandstone facades of the buildings and would have enjoyed seeing inside some of them. Would recommend doing.

It was very informative but at times hard to hear what was being said. A little bit more about the pubs we were in would have been interesting.
