This was an excellent tour. Small group so very personalised. John has a wealth of knowledge to share and delivers it in a very interesting and entertaining way. The walking tour was well-paced and thoroughly enjoyable. The light dinner and drink in the heart of the Gorge was a lovely touch. Absolutely beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife, excellent tour!

Personalized tour from Launceston. I wanted to visit Bridestowe Lavender farm & Lilydale falls, and John tailored the trip to include these plus other hidden gems like Brady's lookout & Cataract gorge. Also threw in some local boutique retails. John was an excellent & knowledgeable guide. He made sure the trip was fun & laid-back but still informative with facts & history. Definite value for money. Would highly recommend this trip.

Thanks Joben for your kind words and I was so pleased I could share both the Bay of Fires and Freycinet areas with you. The colours and contrasts of the beaches, sand and rocks are exceptional and even better on a cloud free day of course. I wish you the safest of travels, the best of health and a great 2021.

We went to the Bay of Fires with Discover Tasmania Tours. John, our tour guide, was amazing. Firstly, communication was excellent. Secondly, he was prompt in picking us up. Thirdly, he catered to our needs, as i desperately wanted to go to the lavender farm, so he included that in our tour. We stopped at various places - wooden carvings made out of old dead trees, a myrtle forest, and of course Binnalong Bay with the amazing red fire rocks and glorious beach. I would highly recommend Discover Tasmania Tours as they cater for everyone.

Many thanks Gail for your kind review and it was an absolute pleasure to show you and your family both the Bay of Fires and the Mole Creek King Solomons limestone caves recently. There is so much to see and do around this great island that I am sure you will return to explore further afield. I hope that the weather is kinder for the next planned hot air ballon ride. Wishing you all a great 2021 with good health and safe travels.

John, the business owner is absolutely amazing! He keeps the atmosphere lively and joyful. His knowledge about the areas is impeccable. We requested for a personalised tour and he fit multiple places in an 8 hour trip, which seemed almost impossible. He also provided us with an opportunity to pluck fresh strawberries and blueberries from a farm! He also had snacks, mentos, water and sanitiser in his car for us. I would 100% recommend John at Discover Tasmania Tours! He makes the trip well worth it for a very reasonable price.
