We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour walking tour. Our guide, Lisa, was so passionate about the history of Hobart, we felt immersed in the whole history. The stories about the history were absolutely fascinating and we learnt so much.

A very enjoyable and informative walk discovering the early convict history of Hobart. Lisa was a great host- thanks Lisa. We went back to St David's cathedral and it's just beautiful inside.
