  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    Fabulous exploring day trip from Hobart. We are travelling from NZ and wanted a fun & informative tour. Our guides of Phil, Emma & Lily really treated us on with great weather assisting. Top notch day that is busy, great lunch, fun on the sea and historical Port Arthur penal site. Book a guided tour to understand the background is a must and our driver Phil had done that.

    After this trip my face hurt from grinning ear to ear the entire day - the scenery of Bruny Island and its coast were jaw dropping, the wildlife was incredible and the tour guides (Jordan and Hamish) were fantastic. I do recommend topping up the sunscreen before getting on the boat and also wearing sunglasses and a hat. Absolutely magic experience.

    A small and intimate cruise. Lunch was provided the staff and skipper were amazing and could not do enough for you to make you comfortable and safe. Lunch was delicious. The views from the boat and wildlife during the guided walk on the island was fantastic.

    An absolutely beautiful afternoon spent with Mark and crew, we would highly recommend this experience when in Hobart. From start to finish Mark was very accomodating and informative over the course of the afternoon. We want to do an overnight experience now !!!

    Lunch cruise was great with a good meal and excellent commentary as we travelled round the river and many sights were well explained in regard to the history of the place.

    If I could give this 6 stars, I would. Easily the highlight of our Tasmania trip. Sam was a great tour guide and skipper. He was very energetic and polite, ensuring everyones comfort, safety and enjoyment on the boat. Sites were incredible and the view was even better. Boat was clean and toilets provided. 11/10, would recommend.

    It is the most amazing 360 degree views. We were very lucky because the morning started off cloudy but by the time we arrived at the top it had all cleared and Hobart was spread out below us, it was just an amazing, you can't beat the view from that height.

    Michael and his crew gave us a wonderful experience of the sea life, geology and history of Maria Island and more! In particular, they made sure that all passengers had what they needed and were very attentive to that.

    A great way to spend a day , a cruise and a very nice lunch in an amazing restaurant.
    At first glance this might seem a little expensive, but once experienced you will be extremely satisfied.
    Full half day excursion, south from Hobart to Peppermint Bay , enjoying lunch looking towards Bruny Island. Along the way the captain points out some interesting natural wonders. The bait has a bar , tea and coffee .
    The restaurant and the food are a surprise. A very good surprise. Highly recommended.

    Small tour of 9 in modern bus around the the highlights areas of Hobart plus ….those back streets where large buses can’t go. Took my mother and our Guide, Peter Warren, went above and beyond to cater for the whole group. Having a mature local guide who has lived in Hobart for over 30 years gave us the opportunity to gain a more in-depth knowledge of the city and its deep rich history. Having a passionate guide was a real bonus. Thanks -Sharon and Sandra

    It was an amazing day at Mona, that all (adults) should experience. Museum is world class with provocative modern and informative historical pieces. The culinary fine dining and exquisite wines topped the day.

    An experience of awe. The plane trip over was breathtaking, even though there was cloud cover. The cruise was stunning. The staff were really friendly, the lunch was delicious and the scenery was gorgeous. As it was a lovely day we’re got to go out to sea. The tour of Sarah Island was a highlight. Our guide was funny and yet conveyed the cruelty the convicts endured. I had wanted to do the trip for many years. It lived up to all my expectations.
