Our group was fortunate to have highly experienced tour director Carolyn and excellent driver Tom.
For me the highlights were Cradle Mountain, Sarah Island, Launceston's Cataract Gorge, Freycinet National Park, Port Arthur, the Bruny Island boat cruise, and crossing the Tasman Bridge on foot, in addition to the excellent dinners. I now miss Tasmania ...read more and would do the Trafalgar/ AAT Kings tour again in 12 months' time.
The accommodation was excellent throughout, but we learnt that a couple of places will double their rates from April 2023 so different venues will be used. Going at the end of January 2023 the weather was cooler than the mainland but fortunately it only rained half a day over the 13 day tour. The tour was crowded with 47 passengers, with most over 70. Apart from Australians and New Zealanders, there were also Canadians and Americans. I was fortunate to have Hannah as my Global Journeys travel advisor since she kept me informed throughout the booking process, and I have already booked subsequest tours with Hannah and GJ.
