  • Thoroughly enjoyed this trip - Nick the driver was informative and friendly. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone thinking of going.

  • Pennicotts day tour to Bruny Island far exceeded my expectations. An idyllic location not far from Hobart, and generous tastings everywhere: cheeses, amazing local oysters, baked scones or berry muffin or fresh berries at the berry farm, wine tasting and delicious salmon or lamb lunch, chocolates, honey tastings and a sample jar to take away, whiskey or gin from the distillery. Very well organised and our driver/guide Rio made it a fun and memorable day for all, with his local knowledge and jokes. I would highly recommend this tour.

  • A wonderfully organised tour! Bruny Island is such an amazing place to see and the food was just incredible. Such a fun day - eating our way around Bruny Island. Highly recommend!

  • Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Great part of the country. My goodness, the best oysters I have ever eaten. The only suggestion for improvement is to stay at Get Shucked and keep eating oysters.

  • A great way to sample the best of Bruny Island. From White Wallaby viewing to enjoying fresh oysters, cheese, chocolate topped off with a lovely lunch and a whisky/gin tasting to send us on our way. Michael our driver/guide was very informative.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Excellent tour. Good food, great guide and well worth the money.

  • This Tour is Fantastic!!! Mark our tour guide and driver pick me up at 0730hrs is so knowledgeable and friendly from the get go.
    The mini bus take up to 20 passenger but we only have 18. The first stop was Oysters farm where you can see how the guys shuck the oyster like a pro, We all have half a dozen each . Then we went to the honey stand where we had the pleasure to samples 6 kind of honeys which is all delicious and we got a small jar to take home. After that part of the package is wine tasting and lunch. The lunch it self was AMAZING and you got to do the wine tasting and which one of the wine tasting you like you can have a free glass with your lunch. The last stop was whiskey bar and that just like icing on the cake.

    This is one of the best tour that i have been. Looking forward to come back again next year.

  • Great experience and sight, residents here are really blessed with such serenity. We have a great time with an informative guide.

  • Oh my goodness!!! There are insufficient words to tell you how great this day is. Just do it!!!!
