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.
My wife and I had a great experience during this cruise, from the friendly & courteous receptionist to Graeme, who manned the cruise. He was professional throughout, relating notable historical facts to us as we (and others) went through the cruise.
The boat is clean and new, and the staff are friendly and helpful. We learned an enormous amount about the early settlement days and the river, both from videos on the boat and our stops on the way. A delicious and well presented lunch was served.
Well organised, very friendly crew & beautiful scenery. Commentary was difficult to hear over the engine noise, but the bits I heard were very informative. Overall a most enjoyable day and highly recommended.
It was great to take the River cruise before going to walk around Cataract Gorge as its a different view from the river. The guide and the booking office were exceptionally helpful with great Aussie service.
