Sally took a group of us including my husband and our son and daughter in law around Tasmania for the day. We arrived by cruise ship and only had the day. She did a super job and we couldn't have been happier. We thought we were going to see Richmond and the Wild Life preserve(110 kangaroos!!) which we did but... More

We just spent two days with Sally and couldn't have had a better time. We communicated by e-mail in advance of our arrival and I gave here an idea of the goals of our days and what we liked and didn't like. She put together the perfect two days of tours for us. We learned quite a lot about Tasmania...its... More

We docked in Hobart and looked for a tour that would be both affordable and enjoyable. The ship tours had prohibitive costs!! We went to the Information Center near the dock and spoke with a young clerk there. We told her what we had in mind and she placed a call to Herbaceous Tours. My wife and I have been... More
