Amazing tour with the best highlights of Tassie. A definite must-do! Great stops and good add on options offered. Fair price and we did/saw a lot! My tour guide Gareth was wonderful and since he is from Tasmania he was also very knowledgeable about the culture, landscape, animals etc of Tasmania. He was patient and kind hearted and made individuals feel cared about.

It's the best trip that I 've ever been. Stunning coast, rainforests, wild animals everything is so amazing. (we even found the wild platypus!!!) Thanks for the professional tour guides to tell us lots of stories about Tasmania. I will definitely travel again in the future.

I saw sooo much in 5 days . Tasmania is beautiful, even with shity weather. It rained most of the time while I was there and I even had snow on the cradle mountains ( it was Nov/Summer) but it was still beautiful and kinda mysterious in it own way.

Enjoy the strenuous activities with the group and the excellent tour guide/driver.

This was the best tour I’ve been on. Good pacing and really fun.
