What people are saying about Richmond, Tasmania

This all day tour to the Tasman peninsula and Port Arthur was fabulous. Our guide Justin was amazing, hilarious and very knowledgeable. There was a long bush walk to one site on the way which we weren’t expecting but still very well worthwhile. Very much recommend this tour and company. Great communication.

The bus picked us up on time and drove to Richmond for a coffee and snacks.The whole journey,Garth gave a very interesting talk about the landscape and the history. Port Arthur wonderful,despite the weather. I would highly recommend this tour.

Excellent trip. We went for a very nice walk to see the Tasman Arch and Blow Hole. Port Arthur is worth the visit. The cruise is a bit of waste of time unless you have a ticket to see the Island of the dead. This was not included in this trip.

Excellent tour, brilliant guide who was v informative and funny keeping energy levels up all the way. Weather was rain but even so tour was worth it. Learning about convict life was both fascinating and disturbing.

A great experience. The guide is excellent, knowledgeable and humorous. Would love to come back again. Highly recommend.
