Superb tour! Our group saw and learned so much thanks to our tour guide Justin’s passion and logistical ability. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking to explore the beauty and wildlife of Tasmania. 7 days is ideal but the 5 day tour allows you to experience the best parts of Tasmania as well.

This was a stunning trip. We visited all the best parts of Tasmania. Keygan was an excellent tour leader who made the trip come alive and we had lots of fun along the way. Highlights for me were the Macquarie harbour trip, Cradle mountain and Wineglass bay. There was a good mix of history, scenery and wildlife.

Loved it! The tour is packed to make sure you see all highlights of the island. Our guide Keygan was funny and made sure everyone had a great trip. The tour has options for those who want to do the more difficult hikes and those who don’t. The hostels are all good!
