    It was an amazing day! Very informative and interesting history provided by our tour guide, Jarrod. He spoke clearly and did a very good job in looking after his group. He gave us rich information about Hobart. We had ample time at each stops. Highly recommended trip. The mini van was very comfortable and clean. I liked the small group tour, no dramas.

  • Hobart: Best of Tasmanian Wine Day Tour

    2. Hobart: Best of Tasmanian Wine Day Tour

    Your full-day wine tour begins as you depart from the Brooke Street Pier. From there, begin your visit to 5 of Southern Tasmania’s best wine producers, all within a short drive of Hobart. Have the opportunity to meet some of the winemakers and taste a wide range of award-winning, hand-crafted, cool climate wines. Taste world-class sparkling wines, crisp cool-climate white wines, and velvety, seductive reds. See grapes being processed, wines being fermented in the wineries, grapes growing in the vineyard, and wines maturing in barrel rooms. You may even be lucky enough to try wine direct from the tanks, or even from the barrels. Expect a day packed full of wine tasting, tours, conversations, and even some local cheese thrown in for good measure. At the conclusion of your experience, return to the Hobart Brewing Company to continue your evening.

    Was a jam-packed day with lots of variety! The Tasman National Park walk and views were lovely. The Lavender Farm is quite small, so only had 30 minutes there. The tour included entry into the Port Arthur Historic Site and a boat ride. My guide Andrew, and the other travellers in my tour group made the experience even more enjoyable. Would highly recommend for a great day out!
