What people are saying about Hobart
We only had a day in Tasmania and couldn’t be happier to have taken this day trip. We visited big tree country, taking a short hike through the trees with wildlife (pademelons, birds, a platypus) and waterfalls. We hand fed kangaroos, took pictures with a koala and a wombat, and watched a Tassie devil feeding at Bonorong. Bonorong is amazing! Lunch was at the quaint town of Richmond which had gin/whiskey tastings, a candy shop, scallop pie, and a beautiful park near the water with the oldest active bridge in Australia. The day ended on Mt Wellington with a gorgeous view of Hobart and Tassie. We loved learning so much about Tassie while experiencing it. I would recommend this trip to anyone.
We were not able to get a pick up confirmation about time or location, (calls not answered emails not replied too) fortunately the hotel staff knew about the tour and told us they did indeed pick up at our hotel. So we only had to wait for about 30 minutes. Other than that it was great. The ride was broken down with several stops for snacks and restroom breaks. The walk to the overlook isn’t terrible, but it isn’t a leisurely stroll either, so bring water and wear sneakers.
We had a great day with Jarrod as our guide. He knows so much about the history, geography, wildlife, farming practices and people of Tasmania. He is thoughtful; for example, ensuring that we were able to walk down to the falls instead of climbing up. He helped us discover great Tasmanian scallop pie! We highly recommend this tour!
The whole trip was fabulous from start to finish. Our guide was really informative and the neck and the lighthouse were well worth the visit. We had some impressive food along the way. the pub food was huge and delicious. Highly recommend this company.
Guides were friendly and very knowledgeable. They made our journey a lot of fun and a very interesting and beautiful experience. High recommend to anyone wishing to see Tasmania with a guide.
