    The itinerary is good, with the experienced tour guide, we can reach every scenery point timely and do not have a feeling of rush.
    The early departures and long days were well worth it and meant you could see and do so much.

    Good way to go around Tasmania
    Alicia_F, June 2023
    I really liked the tour cause it’s a good way to go around Tasmania without renting a car. On day two and three it takes more time to go to the nationalparks than staying there. That’s a bit sad but still worth it. The unzoo was a real highlight for me. Haven’t expected to ever recommend a zoo in my life. Apart from this you can also see a lot of wildlife like wild wombats!
    Not a very good experience
    Monique_N, Nov 2022
    Is not active adventure but a tour operator for quite old persons…don’t wait adventure….to avoid for active people
    Best Tour I’ve experienced!
    Jaymee_T, Aug 2022
    All the tour guides (Trevor, Nick, and Graham) were very knowledgeable of the history and current affairs of each area and provided great information. The tour was better than expected and I would definitely recommend for all wanting to experience a great introduction to Tasmania!

    3 out of THREE
    de-EMDI, Apr 2021
    The 3 fabulous days tour with 3 different drivers (David, Nick and Graeme) who have lots of knowledge, friendly and so helpful is a top-notch. Thank you guys, keep up your good work! The historic place of Port Arthur, to see and experience the wildlife from the unzoo, amazing views and walks of Wineglass Bay & Cradle Mountain and extra little stops at some places every morning & afternoon to try locals snacks, this tour is for sure worth for money, worth for visit and worth it all. No complaints for the buses we took, clean & aircon flows, and drivers follow the protocol for the COVID safety too. Thanks to Graeme for some very useful tips and information on our free day in LST. Recommended 3D TASMANIA COMBO TOUR!
    An amazing tour
    Brian, Apr 2020
    This tour did everything we wanted, and more! It was very well organised and excellent value for money. We loved every minute of it. The early departures and long days were well worth it and meant you could see and do so much. Port Arthur was probably the day one highlight (you could easily spend a whole day there!), although the visit to 'Unzoo' was a special experience, where most of the wildlife there simply roam around in a natural environment. The scenic clifftop walks and various viewpoint stops were amazing. And Richmond and the Hobart City Lookout rounded the day off in style. Freycinet National Park and the views of Wineglass Bay were stunning - well worth the 45 minute climb up to and sown from the lookout. Honeymoon Bay provided an ideal contrast for a lunch break - an opportunity to relax in a beautiful, scenic environment surrounded by a calm, turquoise sea. The final day, Cradle Mountain, was probably one of the highlights our entire trip around Australia. Every bit of the day was just wonderful, from the short walks to the hike around Dove Lake, the scenery and the wildlife in their natural environment. The guides were excellent. Dan, (day one), was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and humorous. Rod (day three), shared his enthusiasm and detailed knowledge about every aspect of Cradle Mountain, the environment and its wildlife. The air-conditioned buses were comfortable and the baggage trailer towed on day two meant there was non restrictions on luggage, perfect for us as we on a six week trip around Australia. This trip ticks all the boxes, especially if you are limited for time. Highly recommended.
    A wonderful mix of natural beauty, history, and wildlife!
    Warren_G, Mar 2020
    We had three great days of tours in beautiful locations and with three great job as driver/guides! Clinton, Andy, and Tony all did a great job of making our bus travels and sightseeing visits interesting and they all brought great amounts of personal knowledge of Tasmanian history, local lore, and even plenty of information on plants, trees and wildlife. We were fortunate to see Wallabies, wombats, Tasmanian devils and wild birds during our tours.
    Can't just pick one: Hiking Cradle mountain and petting kangaroos
    olivialafreniere, Feb 2020
    Absolutely amazing experience! If you are short on time in Tasmania but still want to see the biggest spots, this tour is for you! You get to see so many wonderful and beautiful areas, learn about tassie history, see native animals and vegetation in their natural habitat, taste local produce and just have an amazing time. Tassies are incredibly kind in general and this holds true for the guides!
    Highly recommended
    mmj, Feb 2020
    I really enjoyed this 3 day tour. It had the prefect amount of stops, we saw so much. I’d highly recommend this tour it was really money well spent. I travelled solo.
    Great Tour
    gerdko2000, Feb 2020
    The tour covered the essentials of all Tasmania and gave an excellent impression of Tasmanian nature and wildlife. The tour guides did a great job by explaining every detail of anything you saw. Great tour, great tour guides! Highly recommendable for everyone!
    Good tour

    A must join guided tour

    The itinerary is good, with the experienced tour guide, we can reach every scenery point timely and do not have a feeling of rush. The van provided is spacious n made me comfortable!
    Great option for Tassie highlights if you have limited time.
    Olivia_M, Jan 2019
    Positive points: Our guide tours for each day (Dan, Connor and Stephen) where all very friendly, professional and informative. In particular, Connor shared a lot of Australian and Tassie history while driving us, it was Australian day and that was a great plus to the trip and Stephen told us a lot about the plants in Craddle Mountain. Each attraction has different and amazing landscapes and we loved all places. Oysters on the way to Freycinet were amazing and Ashgroove cheese is delicious!Negative points: We had the feeling of always being in a bit of a rush in order not to run out of schedule.In sum, the tour was amazing for us because we did not have a lot of time to spend in Tassie, and still we had a great trip, could see a lot of things and learned a lot about history, plants, animals and life in Tasmania.

    It is a good package that shows you some of the must go places in Tasmania. The guides are nice and helpful. The tour is nicely design with suitable amount of activities. Unfortunately, my tour cannot go to Cradle Mountain due to bad weather. They have arranged a make up tour to other places which are worth visiting as well.

    Elizabeth G, June 2017
    I absolutely loved this tour, our guide on the first 2 days, Dan was super friendly and interesting. Also, our guide to Craddle mountains, Graham, taught us a lot of info ! I find that the number of activities for each day is perfect. A big thumbs up for the un-zoo where we can see devils and feed kangaroos :

    Patrick D, Jan 2017
    Excellent tour and both of the tour guides were very knowledgable and friendly. The arrived on time and delivered us back to our hotel in a timely and safe manner. Port Arthur with its beautiful grounds and buildings was one of the highlights of the trip. The Port Author park guide was exceptional. His reliving of tales of the area and individual convicts was riveting. Taking a guided tour at the park is a must. The hikes in the national parks and along the coast were spectacular. We really enjoyed the hikes around Cradle mountain. We saw Wombats, Tasmanian Devils, kangaroos, wallabies, etc. Would highly recommend this tour.
