What people are saying about Queenstown, Tasmania

For me this was one of the best trip I have ever had in my life. Everything for was well organized and the tour guide (Nathalie) was amazing. Tasmania in itself is amazing and the places covered in this tour are also amazing. But what made this trip exceptional was Nathalie the guide. So thanks for Under down under and a special thanks for our guide Nathalie :)

Natalie, our guide/driver, was great in getting us through all itineraries on this 7 days tour. My wife & I enjoyed the 2nd night group cook-in organised by her. All motels were very good with full amenities.

Our tourguide Josh was the best! Met the most amazing people and we were very lucky with the weather. Every time I thought the sight could get more stunning they got more beautiful!

It was perfect as it was, enough time for hikes, new highlights every day. Would choose the motel option next time.

Natalie was amazing. The trip was action packed and a good value for the dollar.
