Beautiful Bruny
Jenny_F, Mar 2023
This was an excellent day trip. Worth every cent. To explore Bruny island with a local was the only way to go. Rick was a great guide. Informative, funny, well organised and friendly. The lookouts were a decent climb but time is allowed to catch your breath and get to the top, because the views are really worth the effort. The lighthouse was beautiful and the guide there was friendly and informative. The lunch included was delicious and well organised so not a long wait and guaranteed seat in busy hotel. I would recommend this day trip and company to anyone visiting Hobart.
Awesome day on Bruny Island
Kirsten_T, Mar 2023
Rick our guide was very personable and fun when sharing his extensive insider knowledge of the island. It was a fabulous visit, and the tastings and lunch were superb. I have just completed my Master's degree in Sustainable practice so I was impressed with Rick's passion for sustainability and his concerns for the island. I recommend this tour to anyone and considered it excellent value. The lighthouse visit was fabulous and our lovely guide was very interesting.

Thank you Kirsten :)
Julie_F, Mar 2023
Waste of a precious day. A LOT of time in a van just driving from one point commercial (buy this, buy that) stop to commercial stop; minimally interactive guide. Very disappointed.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Julie, Are you reviewing the correct company? We are definitely not a shopping tour. Thats why we collect the produce and present it to you. Happy to chat about your experience and guide further.
Amazing way to see Bruny Island
Steven_W, Mar 2023
Fun, friendly & informative tour with knowledgable and local guide Rick. Saw amazing sites, learned about the Island's history & facts. Tasted local produce plus a great lunch, you must try the cherry & apple cider. Highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great way to see Bruny Island.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Steven, Thank you for your great review. Rick must be getting close, if not passed 2000 tours for Bruny Island Safaris. He's been with us from the start and loves his island.
Have a great day oit on Brunt Island
Helen_S, Mar 2023
Was a great day trip from beginning to end. Grant our tour guide was so informative , nothing was too much trouble.Great day out.......great trip. Won't disappoint
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you Helen. We are glad you enjoyed your day out with Grant.
Drive a hire car if you have 2 or more people.
Deborah_R, Mar 2023
If you are travelling with a group of friends you might want to look into just hiring a car in Hobart and driving yourself around. Definitely be cheaper then just go to the lighthouse, the neck and either the pub for fish chowder or try the cheese place for lunch.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Deborah, Thank you for your review. Our itineraries will get you to so much more than what you mention above. We prebook all of our venues and operate 4 different tour itineraries to make your visit to Bruny island memorable and productive. Our guides are a wealth of knowledge, which you won't get on your own. The lighthouse tour is guaranteed as we have it all pre-booked and the public can't book during the times we are there. We have been operating these tours for 11 years and know which ferries to catch and which venues to visit when it's not too busy, to avoid the crowds. Thank you
Diverse island
Helen_H, Mar 2023
Climbing the lighthouse not so much the getting up to the lighthouse. Lots of interesting little businesses and landscapes

7 Stars - Rick does read all the reviews and will be over the moon for your words. As our longest serving guide he loves nothing better then guiding our amazing guests to go see the beautiful Island.
Grant_E, Mar 2023
Operator Grant was friendly & informative. Food and scenery beautiful, thanks Would receive to friends
Unbelievable tour.
Elaine_S, Mar 2023
Oh what can I say? I have so many positive feedbacks to write about. The only Bruny island tour with the light house guide. The tour driver was magnificent, just polite, proffessional in all aspects, knowledgeable about everything, the light house guide was very proffessional and patient. The tour was great. lots of different food tasting along the way like honey, cheese, chocolate, the choices of lunch were so many and very delicious. It was such a beautiful, breathtaking view in at Bruny Island. I will do this again, if I get the opportunity to be in tasmania. This tour is worth the amount we paid for.
Great stuff
Shane_R, Feb 2023
The entire experience was great, a massive thumbs up to the tour operator and our driver/guide young Jeff, he was fantastic. I would highly recommend the Bruny Island day out.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Hello Shane, Thank you for your fantastic review and recommendation. We hope to see you again one day.
Irene_E, Feb 2023
What a fabulous day! Grant was an excellent guide/driver! He was a wealth of history and information. The lighthouse tour was magnificent. Grant was very organized and kept the tour moving smoothly. Highly recommend.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you Irene. Grant loves his early island history and a smooth operator.
Coach driver could of been more informative and complementary water should have been available on coach.
Greg_C, Feb 2023
Lighthouse visit and surrounding scenery amazing.Oysters were so fresh and Bruny pub lunch was nice.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Hi Greg, Thank you for your review. The buses have complimentary water. I'll chase the day up and see who your guide was. Our apologies if you were not informed about the water.
Too rushed
Duncan_F, Feb 2023
Too rushed. To much time going to lighthouse rather than on opportunities to sample more local produce
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Hello Duncan, Thank you for your review. Our tours are structured in a way that we get to see all of Bruny rather than just the food. In saying that you experienced all of the local produce available. Bruny Island is a big island, half the size of Singapore in landmass and hard to keep all pallets satisfied.
Enjoyable and informative
Jenni_H, Feb 2023
Despite the wet, cold and windy conditions, our tour guide made our trip very enjoyable and memorable. He was extremely informative on the history and social issues of the area.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Great feedback. Ta Muchly.

Jeff was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Just the right amount of commentary along the way. The morning stop for fresh oysters and local cheese was great. Lunch was great too as were the afternoon tastings. Lots of stops for photo opportunities and comfort breaks. Well done Jeff, a highly recommended tour!
Response from Host, Feb 2023
