What people are saying about Hobart

Highly recommended for the first time in Bruny Island! Our guide/driver Jeff is so nice and knowledgeable. It’s a good choice who doesn’t have experience in Tasmania. Lighthouse is the best part. And also the lunch in Hotel Bruny is fantastic. Must try the homemade brewery!

We were on this tour with Alex as our tour guide. We enjoyed our day thoroughly, the itinerary didn't feel rushed, and Alex peppered the trip with stories and his humour. Will recommend.

Very enjoyable..The guide was entertaining, very pleasant and the atmosphere was great throughout the day tour.

10/10 experience, so much fun and met a lot of interesting people on the tour.
