Very well organised experience from start to finish. Lots of interesting information and facts about the Tassie devil and amazing close up viewing of these often misunderstood marsupials. Also pleased that part of the cost of the tour will help assist with Tasmanian devil research.

From being picked up and having Leon welcome us and then he was a non stop vessel of information until we were dropped back off. He really was everything and more that you would want in a guide. Watching the devils feed is a surreal...More

Although it feels a bit bizarre to have wine and cheese while you watch the tasmanian devil feed on a dead wallabee or some other dead animal, it’s a great way to get close to these unique animals. The tour is very well organised and...More
