Great day ran by Nick. Just prepare yourself as it’s a long day in the bus from Hobart. Everyone had a say when it came to stop off selection and duration or stops . All ran really smoothly and the tour guide did his best to ensure every person was tended to throughout the day for that personal feel in a group tour

Our day trip with Alex and a few others was one of the highlights of our trip to Tassie! We were picked up on time and given a detailed, fun and memorable trip with a lot of spots on the way and local information which only someone as experienced, caring and understanding as Alex would provide. Weather wasn't the best but Alex moved a few pieces here and there to ensure we made best use of our time and overall made it a memorable and well spent day!
