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.

Amazing. Learned so much and the guides were brilliant.

The site is very spread out,but there are courtesy vehicles that can drop you at each one. Powerful history and you learn a lot. Would recommend it to all. There are a few different tours to enjoy we visited the site for about 5 hours then went back at night for the ghost tour which was really good. The site entry allows you two days if needed to see it all. Staff are very knowledgeable and ready to answer any questions you have. We enjoyed a nice lunch. Would suggest getting there early as it gets very busy.

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.

Excellent day trip - good value for money

Thoroughly enjoyed our day. Was 11 hours from pick up to drop off, so a long day, but lots to see and do. Our driver Simon was a top guy and we would certainly recommend this trip.
