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.

Ben was an outstanding tour guide. The combination of his history of the island and the city, combined with his excellent knowledge of where to go to see the best of the area, created an outstanding visit and day. We always book private guides as we travel, and Ben ranks among the best. Our only regret -- we wish we had more time! We can't wait to return to Hobart and explore the city and region further ... and Ben will be the first person we call.

We very much enjoyed a day trip with Ben, who has a very thorough knowledge and close connection to Bruny Island. Would highly recommend Ben and this tour - the morning tea and the location he chose for it is a real highlight.

Ben is the best local tour guide that you can find for Bruny Island, he grew in the Island and showed us the best kept secrets of Bruny Island, places for surfing, fishing and the best views. (where he used to go with his dad, and where he takes his kids now)
We also went to the usual places, the neck, hiking, etc.
Ben is really easy-going with an excellent sense of humor. He was very accommodating to our requests and he knows EVERYONE in the Island. He got us a private tour of the Bruny Lighthouse for 20 minutes with the guard, they even took us to the top of the lighthouse and we were able to get outside at the top of the lighthouse to see the views and feel the strong winds. We had a lovely lunch at the Winery. If you want a private tour of Bruny Island or any part of Tasmania we highly recommend Ben, you cannot go wrong with him. I wish there were more than 5 stars !!!!!

Glowing praise for this tour provider. Ben Andrews of Adventure Trails Tasmania provided us with 5 days of customized, personalized tours for 6 of us Canadians recently in Tasmania. He was an expert at anticipating our needs and wants, making our experience a one of a kind, memorable event in our trip down under. Our time with Ben was the highlight of our 31 day trip. He was efficient, organized, knowledgeable and most of all thoughtful of his guests. His bus was extremely well maintained and immaculate. Ben was a thoughtful host and incredible ambassador for Tasmanian culture and tourism. He packed in all the highlights of the South Island he could in the time we had. We are extremely grateful for this experience. Amazing value for the money!!!

We are three Canadian couples. We hired Ben to guide us on 5 day tours out of Hobart. From the time Ben picked us up from the airport to the point he dropped us back off for our return flight, Ben was amazing. He coordinated our arrival with the rental house owner and stocked our kitchen with wine, fruit, cheese and chocolate. His knowledge of nature, culture, and history combined with his passion for sharing his experience provided us with an unbeatable and unforgettable vacation. Ben tailored each day based on our preferences and his extensive knowledge of Tasmania. Every day included special "Ben" touches, from homemade picnic lunches, to great cafes and restaurants, to surprise hikes, as well as connections to other fascinating people who could enhance a tour or experience. Ben was always ready to add or change a destination based on time or weather conditions. We have taken private tours in many places around the world, and we all agreed that Ben was the best guide we have ever met.

We did an overnight tour on Bruny Island with Ben/Adventure Trails Tasmania, and it was fantastic in every respect. Ben communicated with us extensively before our tour to make sure we'd see everything we wanted to see and to get an idea of how we wanted to pace our time on Bruny Island. He planned a complete range of experiences for us, from oysters to trails to time on the coast. He was a pleasure to work with and a complete delight as a tour guide and traveling companion. Ben is knowledgeable and efficient and thoughtful--truly everything about our time on Bruny was top notch. I can't recommend this experience highly enough.
