    Ben was spectacular in his knowledge and care during this tour. He was one of the very best we had. You can't get better. Wonderful in every way.

    Ben was a safe driver and very knowledgeable guide. He spoke with passion about the different locations, people like Gustav W, trees, plants, fauna, etc. His road courtesy is outstanding especially in the winding stretch of road where anyone might be prone to dizziness, and let cars banking up to get ahead of us. Please ensure you provide this feedback to him and his management. This is on behalf of the 7 Crazy Asians. Thank you.

    Overall itinary well organised. Travel guide cum driver Ben is friendly n knowledgeable. Although lunch was included but sandwich n wrap was too cold for winter. Consider to provide warm food or alternative salad, fruits because the bread was hard n wrap skin is cold n thick hence is difficult to swallow.

    Ben, our driver and guide, from McDermott's Speciality Tours and Charters gave us a day to remember. His knowledge of the locality, and especially the flora and fauna, was exceptional with all questions answered willingly and thoroughly. His passion for the environment and indeed Tasmania in general was a delight to encounter.Thank you Ben for giving us a day to remember.

    Tours exploring the untouched and carefully preserved Tasmanian Wilderness are a must for anyone visiting Tasmania. Our tour guide and bus driver Headley was on time and provided terrific commentary. On site, our guide Megan was informative and sympathetic to the abilities of the group by modifying and pacing the walking tours for us.
    It is a long day tour, but the scenery is quite spectacular! A must see for the nature enthusiast.

    Absolutely fabulous! Our guide was so wonderful and knowledgeable. Cradle mountain and Dove Lake are spectacular. Wish I could have stayed there longer. Will definitely do it again.

    A fantastic experience. Bus arrived on schedule. Imogen, our guide for the day gave a commentary which was informative and interesting on a range of topics- places, history, landmarks etc. We stopped at Sheffield briefly, before making the drive to Cradle Mountain. Imogen had everything organised for us which was great. She kept a steady pace for us to walk around Dove Lake, stopping along the way to explain certain features, and giving us time to take photos. Scenery was amazing, plenty of photo opportunities. It was cool and a rain jacket was handy for the showers that occurred. Good walking shoes are a must. Afterwards, we had lunch - wraps/sandwiches, drink in a hut, followed by a visit to Waldheim house. We stopped at Ashgrove Cheese before heading back to Launceston. Overall, the experience exceeded expectations - wealth of information gained by being with an excellent guide and only a small group of about 9, access to the park and facilities, for a first time visit to the area the day was very enjoyable.
