  • Great tour except for having to wait for the usual slow inconsiderant people who appear on most tours. The driver was awesome. The Musuem was amazing. I'm just not a big fan of organised tours because I have to deal with stupid inconsiderate people :-

  • Zorren has done a great job to show us around the city and some of the top spots. The cruise to and from MONA is good. Some interesting and unique settings within the museum.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • great city tour to give me first hand information of this beautiful city. The driver Jim is excellent. He told me the products in female factory is the cheapest compare with other gift shops. I regret I didn't buy more. I found the same products sold in airport is double in price.

  • Amazing well worth going ,need at least 4 hours at the art exhibitions.

  • enjoyed thoroughly

  • Overall, this was a good tour. However, Hobart itself is somewhat small. MONA itself is worth the price. Great ferry ride to MONA.

  • Great informative tour botanical gardens were beautiful. MONA art gallery is really worth visiting!

  • Unfortunately it was a very wet day that I took this tour but in saying that it was very good and informative and tour guide Elise was very good. The ferry ride to Mona was excellent though I was not impressed by the gallery at all. The structure and the idea is excellent but the exhibits were not to my liking nor understanding. This is no reflection on the tour provider just my personal opinion of the gallery.

  • The driver on the city tour bus was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. Loved both this tour and Mona. Thanx heaps
