This four was 10/10! It had the perfect amount of guidance vs freedom. Lots of outdoor activity so you were taking in the marvellous views for the entire day. The guide was incredible - didn’t constantly speak so you didn’t have a headache at the end of the day. Just shared stories and information at the perfect time, in the perfect amount. Would 100% recommend this tour.

Overall a good day, though longer than expected. The Get Your Guide sent us to the wrong pick up point but fortunately Clinton, driver/guide, had my mobile and called. The tour includes a walk along the cliff tops as well as some other stops on the way back, so expect to be back in Hobart around 6pm. Clinton was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained with Tassie stories! The Port Arthur site is beautifully kept...our disappointment was that the short guided tour was not longer and did not include a tour of the buildings. (You are left to wander.) The Barracks in Sydney has a wonderful system whereby the audio (headset) is automatically triggered as you enter the rooms...providing a great combination of historical data and personal stories.

The choice of stops and attractions seemed an excellent balance, with enough time at Port Arthur and no sense of rushing things. We liked the clifftop walk, and managed it well despite our age (82), because it was relatively level. The one piece of information we would have liked to have in advance as oldies was the availability of the free go-cart service to get us around when tired. It helped to have only 4 of us in the mini-bus.
