    Decent way to get from Launceston to Hobart and the big 3, guides were friendly and knowledgeable. It was raining pretty much constantly during our first two days (cradle mountain and wineglass bay) but we still had a good time, the views were awesome despite the rain and fog. We also got to see lots of wombats which are really cute. The third day to Port Arthur is the only reason we didn't want to give the tour five stars. I wish we could spend more time in Port Arthur instead of the Unzoo (which was okay but unremarkable) and Richmond (lovely town but by the time we got there most shops have already closed). The Port Arthur ferry was also really underwhelming.

    The staff were wonderful,so much knowledge on history,flora and fauna and the locations we travelled to were spectacular

  • 18-Jan-2021

    Some good organisation has gone.into these tours and some options offered. Our tour guides.were all very good, had good knowledge of the places. Tour guides were laid back and good company on tour. Lunch was reasonably organised and gave opportunity to buy food for later or advised where we could buy something. Catered for a wide range of people.

    A great 3-day tour to cover off some of the main outdoor attractions in Tasmania , in a hassle-free way. Both guides on the tour were fantastic - Graeme, who was the guide for the first two days starting out from Launceston was very knowledgeable and was able to give us additional / extended hiking routes that we were still able to finish on time, based on our walking pace. Beth, who was the guide on the third day, brought a quirky sense of humour to the trip and made the day a really fun experience. Would definitely recommend this tour.

    A big thumb to this tour! We had three guides who brought us to different places each day. We went to Cradle Mountain on Day 1, the guide (should be Graeme) provided us with plenty of time to walk around, we were also able to spot adorable wild wombats and wallaby! We were reminded by the guide that we should not touch any wildlife there, and I really appreciated this a lot since it showed his love to the nature. Jackets, socks and gloves were available to lend if you need them. Day 2 was an easier day, views from Wineglass Bay was spectacular and we had our lunch at Honeymoon Bay where the water is so calm and clear. We met up with another guide Nick who drove us to Hobart with our luggage. Nick also took us to a Berry Farm and I should say the ice-cream was super delicious! Day 3 was great because of Nick, our guide. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgable that he introduced a lot of histories of Tassie and Port Arthur to us. He had also given us a playcard of Port Arthur for a little game, which was an interesting process to learn more about Port Arthur. The part where we visited Pirate’s Bay Lookout, Tasman Arch, Devils Kitchen was lovely and Nick would recommend some nice spots for photo taking. Doo Town was very interesting too, we slowly drove through the town to find words with "Doo" on the houses. But the best thing is the asmanian Devil Unzoo where you can see the Tasmanian Devil and feed Kangaroos!!!!! I did not meant to mention Nick only.... please forgive my poor memory and all guides should be praised for their professionalism. Thank you so much for making our Tassie trip so unforgettable!

    The tour was really worth it! Love the service for picking up and dropping off. Covered the key places with additional lookouts. Though covered alot of place, the schedule was not packed and forced. Just what I was looking for.

    We did the big3 from launceston to hobart. First 1.5 days with Greame and next 1.5 with Rick. Fantastic guides I must say. Thoroughly enjoyed their passion for tasmania which reflected in their knowledge about the landscape, flora and faunna. Having such amazing guides makes the trip extra special. A must do tour.

    Knowledgeable and professional tour guides. Loved the main highlights of course, but also enjoyed the stops on the way to the main attractions.

    The parts of the trip in Launceston were great but the guides were quite average. Loved the experience with Clint in Hobart.
