Domenic and I were very impressed with all of the tour but felt it was not long enough though. The 1st day that it supposed to have started, it was a get to know you time and the last day was breakfast and leave so really it was only 4 days of touring. The Tour Director Dave was excellent very caring with all of us and very knowledgeable as well as Brett our driver. The places we stayed at were great and the tour was great very pretty. Only one criticism the modern Art Gallery in Mona we were not impressed and we stayed there too long. Maybe a younger group would like it. We just loved the ducks, lizards and peacocks that were roaming the grounds.

A great tour, of the east coast of Tasmania. Our tour guide, Greg was excellent, knowledgable and took care of all our travel arrangements with ease and in an organised manner. Global journeys were prompt in replying to email requests and organised the trip well. I will definitely travel with AAT Kings again.

Thought the tour was great but somewhat hurried. Perhaps this was because we joined the tour midway. This was our first bus tour so we were not familiar with the processes. We will be in the know next time! In my view the tour leader, Carolyn, was the difference in making this tour so enjoyable. Her personality, knowledge and wherewithal was just great. She is certainly an asset to AAT Kings. Further the skills of the driver were superb getting that huge vehicle through not so good roads was no mean feat and he, too, was great. Hope these comments are helpful.
