Prior to our booked tour, Graham was in constant communication with us with updates regarding our trip and the weather. Unfortunately, in the end our Walls of Jerusalem tour had to be cancelled due to extreme weather conditions. Despite the set back, Graham decided to still host us and come up with alternate plans. With three vegans in our group,...

If you want a relaxing walk in excellent company, this is for you. From the minute Graham collects you for the start of your day's hike, you know you're in safe hands and it's going to be a great day. I did the Hartz Peak walk today, and had an awesome time. Walking at your own pace, Graham leads you...

Two years ago, I was unable to complete Frenchman's Cap due to an injury on the trail. Thanks to Graham and my wonderful guide, Joe, I was able to accomplish my goal and finish the walk earlier this month. Graham worked with me to plan the walk I needed, paired me with the perfect guide and thanks to their expertise,...

We spent a day with Graham and Carol. We had a walk in the Mount Field National Park, and then they showed us the wildlife in Australia. It was really amazing! We definitely come back to Tasmania and join their tour again! :)

We had a fantastic holiday at Base Camp Tasmania. For 5 days Graham was our host and guide - taking us on great bush walks (well suited for the kids aged 7 & 10) and other Tassie sites, and making sure we were well fed and comfortable. Highlights were the day trip to Maria Island (loads of wildlife), the giant...
