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.

A very wonderful experience in Tasmania (Cradle Mountain, Wineglass Bay, Ross Village, Bay of Fire). The local tour (Discover Tasmania Tour) is wonderful.

A once in a lifetime experience delievered in a professional manner! Bays of fire is a must do when visiting the region and trust me you will not regret it. You will be guided through the turquoise and blue waters of the bay by an amazing guide whom we are so grateful to have met . John is a guide like no other! John had a wealth of information about the Bays and terrestrial wildlife and "hot tips" on what to do around the area . He also did a custom tour and added lavender farm which we wanted to visit .I found John has fantastic knowledge of the History of Tasmania, and places along this part of the coast, and the industries that support the area.etc
John was very pleasant and made the day very enjoyable, and comfortable trip I thoroughly recommend Discover Tasmania Tours.

We spent a wonderful day with John. John was very informative with good historical knowledge of the area. Enjoyed conversations about work/travel/life. We visited excellent wineries and included a final stop at Rosevears Tavern for a cleansing ale. We would recommend John for his tours and look forward to another tour with him when we return to Tasmania for another visit.

John is an amazing knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humour. We visited the wildlife sanctuary, King Solomon cave and Cataract Gorge, also did a bush walk and a riverside walk. John was very attentive to my slightly injured knee while making sure I could see the sights by choosing the right paths and the perfect pace. He even prepared fresh strawberries, grapes and bananas for us. We wanted to book another tour with him again but we had a very short stay in Launceston. Highly recommended!

John's tour of Cradle Mountain ticked all the boxes. He was informative, humorous and his knowledge of the region was first class. He took some great photographs of us and shared them at the end of the day. The lunch was superb and he topped the day off with an ice cream for everyone. Highly recommended tour!!

John was extremely knowledgeable about Tasmania and was very accomodating to both me and my partner, he had a great sense of humor and facilitated everything we wanted to do and then some. We would love to come back to Tassie and check out more under John's wing!

Thanks so much for your great review and I trust you enjoyed some of our local wines and can find some at your local bottle shop or order them online of course. It was great to share some scenic and historic sites with you both also and share some Tas history with you. Until next time.

I was the only one on ths trip to Bay of Fires with John so it was abit pricey ,but so glad I did it . John picked me up from the Grand Chancellor Launcestonat 8.15 am . Very chatty and full of info about the area. Stop at Ledgewood to view the amazing chainsaw craving in honor of the fallen soldiers 1914 -18 war .,excellent.
On to Colombo Fall really nice walk and falls lovely. Then another short bush walk. Had a beautiful lunch at Pub in a Paddock.
On to Bay of fires rocks and sand amazing, also went for a paddle in the Tasman sea . Then it was a drive back to hotel past small villages and farm land . Arrived back at 5.30 pm .
Great day glad I did it .

Hi there and it was an absolute pleasure to take you on our solo exploration of the Bay of Fires area on the East coast of Tasmania. There is so much to see and do that I am sure you feel the need to return in the near future and I hope we can meet again.

We spent 3 amazing days with John seeing Cradle Mountain, the Bay of Fires and Bicheno areas. John was patient and flexible catering to our specific interests and pace. He is also a wealth of information about Tasmania and full of enthusiasm to share these beautiful places with you. A great guide. We also loved each of the places he picked for lunch - delicious food and great atmosphere!
