I think whoever wants to visit Tasmania for a short period of time and want to make the best out of it, I recommend this tour. Tasmania is indeed very beautiful and the tour was well planned. Sometimes we would have to rush while walking and couldn’t spend enough time in some places but I guess otherwise we wouldn’t be able to see as many... Hostels that we have stayed varied in quality. I personally liked the one in Strahan the most and the good thing is that we stayed there two nights. I wish the tour guide in the beginning of the tour let us introduce ourselves like we did in Melbourne “go west-great ocean road tour”. Even on the fifth day we wouldn’t know each others names whereas in a day tour that I spend in Melbourne everybody had an idea who is who. I just recommend that to the tour company. All and all, I do recommend this tour especially if you are traveling alone or make the most out of Tasmania in restricted amount of time.
It was fun being on the water but I wouldn’t say it was an eco tour (although I understand it is run as carbon neutral) too much emphasis on the rock minerals and being very close to the rocks. Would have preferred to see more of the island than close ups of some of the rocks. Take note checkin is at 07:45 and whilst the itinerary says ferry at 09:00 what it doesn’t say is that the coach to the ferry leaves at 08:00. We thought we could check in then get breakfast. It would be good if the company amended the timetable to say 08:00 bus departs for ferry terminal. So it’s clear! All up a good day but could be better.
Was a jam-packed day with lots of variety! The Tasman National Park walk and views were lovely. The Lavender Farm is quite small, so only had 30 minutes there. The tour included entry into the Port Arthur Historic Site and a boat ride. My guide Andrew, and the other travellers in my tour group made the experience even more enjoyable. Would highly recommend for a great day out!
Enjoyable day out. Lavender farm is small but has LOTS of lavender products to buy and eat. Pt Arthur site is huge, lots of walking to see it all, and the included boat trip is pleasant. My guide, Connor was great, shared lots of info during the day. Shorter drive distances than some day trips, which I liked.
A brilliant trip. Short drive, ferry trip, short drive and stop, coffee, boat trip, lunch, short drive, ferry, short drive. Engaging guide Grant, who kept us amused and informed as we passed sights of interest. The chance to see both common and bottle nose dolphins.
