“APT Tasman Templation”
- Australia Dec 2015 1 Helpful Vote

Really enjoyed Port Arthur, would have liked an extra day there. When booking twin accommodation often we had a king or queen bed and a single. When paying a fair amount for a tour would have been good not to have had to sleep in a single bed.

“Beginning to end was a fantastic experience”
- SA, Australia Mar 2015

The entire trip from beginning to end was a fantastic experience. All we had to do was enjoy ourselves, which we certainly did. Both the tour guide and coach driver were very easy to get along with and their knowledge of the area had us listening intently, which made the trip even more interesting. The itinerary was very well organised and the accommodation and food was excellent. The trip was faultless. Would we do it again.....definitely yes!
