What people are saying about Richmond, Tasmania

It was a beautiful trip with Jarred and a small group of visitors. Informative and enjoyable. The only problem was we didn't have breakfast before and mount field didn't have much to offer for a good breakfast. So have your breakfast before you start if you need some fuel before lunch. Jarred was friendly and helpful. We had fun.

A great trip with the best guide Jarrod even the weather was terrible. The guide was professional and drove safely up the narrow road to Mt Wellington. Informative and enjoyable. Would love come back again. Highly recommended.

Great guides & itinerary was perfect for the day. Catered to my 80yr old mother through to my 12yr old daughter. Amazing.
