    Informative, enjoyable, best day out, would recommend everyone to do,.

    We did the Hobart City Loop and Cascade Brewery tour, the Hobart city loop was very informative and the driver also gave some very good commentary which we all enjoyed, even the young ones on the bus. The Cascade Brewery was excellent, we had the best time, our Guide keep us all memorized by his stories about days gone past. His knowledge was incredible and we didn't want it to end, there was so much interesting facts to take in. We then back to the tasting room and enjoyed some beverages, which we thoroughly enjoyed and we also had lunch at the Restaurant which was very yummy and we all thoroughly enjoyed. It was very enjoyable we had a great day and would recommend anyone to do this. Thank you for a great day.
