    We paid extra for a Double Room. They put us up at the Mews Motel in Launceston because the motel they usually use only had 3 rooms so we were put at the Mews Motel. Worst hotel we ever stayed at. There was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. I took a photo and can prove it. Phil was just Ok as a guide. He found humor in the fact that we lost a Japanese gal at the park and had to spend 40 mins looking for her. Van was super tight and uncomfortable. If I ever do a tour again I would only do 3 days not 5.

    This is a basic (Budget) tour. But if ur happy with budget dorms, food (breakfast), transport, with cool travelers from different countries seeing some beautiful sights, animals, and having a laugh then ull enjoy this tour!

    I seldom go for organized tour and this has far exceeded my expectation. Very action packed 5 days and yet not rushed among stops. Enjoyed the bushwalk and hiking and (definitely need proper hiking shoes) and got into the cold water. And Rachel our guide has made this tour a blast to have. She went extra miles for everyone to be engaged and taken care of, and making the tour festive/family like over the Christmas time. Thank you Rachel.

    This van trip around Tasmania was excellent primarily due to the expert and professional nature of our guide Phil with Down Under Tours operator. His knowledge of Tasmanian/Australian flora, fauna, history, geology, economics and sociopolitical topics brought a fantastic perspective to the tour of this beautiful island. Phil was also a skilled, safe and conscientious driver which made the tour even more enjoyable. The mix of folks on the tour, while random, was a great cross section of ages and world origins which was an extra bonus.

    A very enjoyable holiday. We had a good time despite the cold and rainy weather. The tour leader went out of his way to make us enjoy the tour which was highly commendable.

    First and foremost, you have to up your transportation game! The seating and van size were absolutely unacceptable. Our guide was a little inexperienced but he was a native Tasmanian and had a great energy. Hikes were awesome. Great vistas and incredible views!

    The tour was very well organized. The various sights were amazing and there were enough breaks so that the long stretches of driving were easy to do. The driver/guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating.

    Well we started off in Hobart on 14th feb 2018 visiting New Norfolk,Mt field Nat Park and Russel Fall,all very impressive,Tungatinah Power Station,Lake St Clair,Nelson Falls,Queenstown on our way to Strahan for our first night stay.Day 2 was up early to visit Montezuma Falls and the Metal Suspension Bridge which was very scary for me.All very impressive walking thro the Forest on the way to the Falls. Not vey pleasant in the pouring rain. Then we visited Roseberry,Henty Dunes which was very nice and back to Strahan for our secon night stay with a Barbecue Laid on by our Leader. Accomodation at the Backpackers Lodge was very good. Day 3 we we maide an early start to Cradle Mountain a which was shrouded in mist because of the persistent rain we were experiencing.We all did the Dove Lake Circuit in the Rain but views of the Lake and Scenery made up for it. Then it was off to Ashgove Cheese Factory for tastings and Coffee. Then on to House of Anusers for chocholate tasting etc.Then stopping at shefield for Groceries we arrived in Launceston for our 3 night stop.Up early again on the 4 day to Bay of Fires with mazing Rock Formations.A visit to St Helens was next and then on to the Wild Life Sanctuary to see the Feeding of the Tasman Devils,Quells and Wombats.We then arrived in Bischeno for our nightly stop.An early start was made on the 5th day to Wine Glass Bay Lookout. Some of us went to the beach down below. While others just went to hazards beach. The Climb up to to the Lookout over Wine Glass Bay was exhausting to say the least. It was for me!!!!. Then we went to see the Swansea Lighthouse which was interesting. Then on to Kate Berry Farm to taste the Ice Cream. Passing through Orford we arived back at Hobart around 05:30 pm on 19th Feb 2018. All in all a very interesting trip but far too much walking for my liking. A thoroughly mixed bunch of passengers who got on with each other very well.I must commnd the Driver as weel who was very knowlegeable and drove the Bus well. This is entirely my own opinion.

    My son and I had a fantastic time in Tasmania. Thanks to Kym everything was very well organised and easy. Her sense of humour and outgoing nature has put everyone at ease and our group became like a little family within a day!! So much to see and all the activities vary greatly, never any time to get bored. Thank you so much, would recommend this tour highly. Kym, you were an absolute star!!
