Must do!
ToniW, Mar 2023
Getting picked up at 6 AM!! But well worth it. To see this much of Tasmania in one day was spectacular. Our guide was wonderful, knowledgeable and so friendly. We learned so much about Tas. and it’s history and culture, not to mention the beauty of Cradle Mt. A must do

We had a great time spent at the Cradle Mountain today. Sam was a very nice and attentive tour guide. We were lucky to have great weather today so we decided to hike up to the Marion’s lookout. The view from there was breathtaking and well-worth it. Highly recommended!!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you Ahn for your 5 star review and great summary. It sure was a beautiful day, and I am so glad that you both were able to experience it with us.

Sam was a friendly, safe, and patient tour guide. This tour was the highlight of my trip to Tanzania!

Big day out with awesome rewards

Enjoyed a good amount of time walking along the tracks near Cradle Mountain. Sam brought along snacks and we could grab a drink afterwards at Peppers before heading off for dinner at Deloraine (good selection). The Cafe stop in the morning was OK and there were plenty of toilet stops along the way. Thanks Sam for getting us to Cradle Mountain safely - has been a highlight of our Tassie trip!
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you, both of you, for coming with us to Cradle Mountain. And thank you for your very kind review and 5 stars. All the best with your busy lives in our Nation's Capital for the year ahead.
Only tour to cradle...
DiAn_D, Nov 2022
Only tour to cradle mountain from hobart, long day but well organised that you get plenty of time there to do the hikes Sam also breaks up the journey to and back well so that you don’t feel it, plus the bus/van is very comfy and roomy with charging ports
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you DiAn for your 5 star review and constructive feedback. All the best Mate.
Absolutely extraordinary!

Wow! What a fantastic day out to cradle Mountain! Absolutely well worth the long trip to get there but many many stops along the way to see some of what the little historic towns along the drive have to offer. We were lucky enough to get some snow fall on our walk which made it that much more special. Our guide Sam from derwent experiences was great and very friendly making it a very relaxing trip from beginning to end. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tasmania. Its a must do!
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you so much Katherine, such a lovely review...and what about the wombats!!
A great find and one that I would recommend

We were really lucky to have found this your as every other one to cradle mountain was booked out. This is also the only tour departing from Hobart if you are spending most of your time there and planning to do other tours from Hobart like we were. It truly was a big day requiring a bit of stamina but absolutely worth it. We had perfect weather on our day and the views were stunning. Great option if you want to check off cradle mountain amongst the many other attractions if you only have limited period of time in Tasmania.
Response from Host, Sept 2022
Thank you for leaving a great review, we sure did get some great weather for the day. Yes, it is a big day, but well worth it..just as you described
Day trip not to be missed
Nandhu_N, July 2022
Sam is a great guide, he's very responsive and prompt. The bus that we travelled in was comfortable for the long journey. The circuit walk around the Dove Lake was incredible and the Enchanting Walk was as the name suggests, quite enchanting. The weather was perfect for the walks and photographs. The day trip was well planned to allow for adequate time at Cradle Mountain - it didn't feel rushed at all despite the long distance we travelled to and back. It alleviated the need for a stay at Launceston just to cover the Cradle Mountain. Thank you Sam for the wonderful trip!
Response from Host, July 2022
Thank you Nandhu. It was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with you and your Family. You summed up the essence of the day and my objectives beautifully
