What people are saying about Port Arthur

Great tour guide but Port Arthur overrated

Adeline, our tour guide was brilliant, friendly, very personable, extremely helpful and very informative, she went out of her way to do everything we could have wanted. Port Arthur itself was interesting but, like most of the Tasmanian convict heritage stuff, the Female Factory, for instance, or Sarah Island, it made the most of the horrors of the worst aspects of transportation but really gave very little of the context and of the convict experience of the majority of those transported who were not serial offenders but who were assigned to farmers and householders in the community. The cruise round the bay was brief but pretty.

Great site to visit- not enough time with this tour though

The tour was run very well by Phil with interesting commentary provided. Really not enough time to see everything though. Shame about that. Didn’t feel the stops on way there and back were worth it as they took away from time at the historical site. No time for lunch or to go to the souvenir shop.

Very good tour, needed more time at Port Arthur

We were not told that the Salamanca Markets were at your own time, would have liked to have known that as we were staying near there, we waited at the meeting point for the 9:00 time we were given then was told to just do your own thing and meet back there at 11:00 for the trip to Port Arthur

A very informative and interesting trip with a knowledgable driver

The trip was highly interesting from the early history of Richmond and the coastal scenery of the Tasman Peninsular. Port Arthur has been preserved in an amazing fashion truly depicting the history and cruelty of the convict era.

Very interesting & enjoyable tour. History was fascinating.

I would have liked more time in Richmond on the way to Port Arthur, but overall the day was really packed full with interesting history & amazing scenery, Tasmania certainly is a magnificent corner of the world.
