“Perfect Tasmaina”
- QLD, Australia Jan 2019 1 Helpful Vote View Photo

I would highly recommend this tour and already have to a close friend. I was happy that the tour included the Mt Field National Park and Cradle Mountain. It was a well paced tour and I felt I was accommodated well. I enjoyed the Freycinet Lodge and all the accommodation was of a high standard. I chose this tour because I had the option to visit MONA within the timeline of the tour.
The food everywhere was a highlight of this tour particularly at the Josef more

“Tasmanian Trip”
- Singapore Nov 2017 1 Helpful Vote

Well organised. Would have liked rooms with a good view in Hobart ( Grand chancellor very noisy) to start the holiday. We did the alcohol history of Hobart tour which was quite a disappointment - tastings were so stingy you could hardly taste the whisky or gin. Food was good, however prefer the set meals rather than the buffets.

“Great Trip!”
- NSW, Australia Mar 2017

We had a great trip, could not have been better. Our tour guide Carolyn Tipper was just the best, very helpful and caring, has a wonderful knowledge of the history of Tasmania and was happy to impart it to the tour as we travelled around. Our driver Tom, must be your best driver, he was fantastic - we knew we were safe with him. The other people on the tour were very friendly and we all got on just great. I would recommend this trip to anyone, but I think we were very lucky to have Carolyn more

As a new tour traveller the holiday lived up to everything I had hoped for. Tasmania offered beautiful contrasting scenery and historical sites. Tasmanian's understand the contribution of tourism to their economy and were interested in making our holiday enjoyable and informative. Our Tour Guide Margaret was well organised and ready to help with any issues while managing to create a friendly atmosphere amongst the travelling group. Always felt safe in the hands of Tom our very capable more
