    To the Summit

    Great tour guide although it was cloudy on Mt Wellington is was an incredible atmosphere. Really worth the trip loved the rock formations. I chose this tour because I only wanted a morning out of my itinerary and it worked well.

    Great bus driver . The mountain was covered in fog so visibility was not great. The driver rounded everyone up who was lagging behind with a final head count. Also stopped for us to see view on way up and down at different spots. Great trip.
    Not worth the money
    Gillian_S, Mar 2023
    We missed the hotel pickup and the driver didn't wait for the 1 minute we were late or call. The tour was a shuttle to the mountain and back with no stops on the way there or on the way back. Don't bother with this tour - book the hop on hop off shuttle to the mountain!

    When we got into the summit, the weather was a bit cloudy but we still enjoy the view. Tim, our bus driver, is very good, told us a lot of interesting stories. Overall, we enjoyed the tour and would recommend to others.
    Good short tour
    Martin_C, Feb 2023
    Nice pleasant drive from the Brooke Street Pier through the Hobart area up to Mount Wellington. Unfortunately, with our tour in the morning, the top of the mountain was clouded in mist badly affecting the highly anticipated view of the landscape from the top. The mist is to blame for our four star rating. Good driving, in challenging conditions, by our guide Peter who also provided an excellent commentary throughout.
    Response from Host, Mar 2023
    Hi Martin, thanks so much for taking the time to review us. So sorry we couldn't turn the weather on for you at the summit, but it is great to hear you enjoyed Peter's local knowledge and commentary. Thanks again
    Mount Wellington day trip worth the visit
    Megan_S, Feb 2023
    Clear view of Hobart, Derwent River and surrounds. Bus was clean, driver very knowledgeable. Very easy trip to fit in to a busy schedule.
    The view was stunning!...
    Scott_J, Jan 2023
    The view was stunning! The drive up and down was expertly handled by driver as he provided history and pointed out interesting facts. Very enjoyable experience, would highly recommend!
    Our Experience
    Shelley_W, Jan 2023
    Fantastic guide Colin was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour so enjoyable thank you. We had always wanted to go upto MT.Wellington what a beautiful sight it was from the top, we will definitely go back again
    Great way to see Mt Wellington/Kunanyi if you are without vehicle!
    Courtney_B, Jan 2023
    Wonderful guide kept us all amused throughout and very knowledgeable. Not just a visit up the Mountain, but also a chance to go part the memorial to the Female Factory and see the original facade of the Cascade brewery as well as hear the stories of significant historical figures that influenced the city and more about the flora and fauna of Tassie. A great experience for the less mobile too; we travelled with an elderly family member and the length of the experience was also perfect at just over 2 hours.
    Snow in summer
    Karen_S, Dec 2022
    Great trip for the short amount of time. Guide very informative and friendly. Saw snow in December which made my day
    Interesting morning
    Margaret_T, Nov 2022
    Very friendly bus driver who went out of his way to explain the native flora and stop for us to take pics of it .

    Fantastic guide & view
    Wendy_G, July 2022
    Tim was the best tour guide. So knowledgeable & passionate about Tassie and made it so interesting. The view was amazing & we had enough time to see everything. He even took us on a little bush walk & again shared his knowledge with us.
    Response from Host, Aug 2022

    Tim was very informative and the tour was excellent. Very safe driver. We had lots of laughs along the way.
    Response from Host, Aug 2022
    Hi Solace_M, thanks for your positive review! It is great to hear you enjoyed your time spent with Tim - he certainly is very passionate about our Island state and thoroughly enjoys showing it to our guests. Thanks again
    Nualnong_W, July 2022
    A guide tour is excellent and knowledgeable. I quite enjoy his story. Love this tour and experience has been received.
    Interesting history facts...
    Deborah_S, July 2022
    Interesting history facts provided however the trip was not what we expected. Unfortunately couldn’t make it to the top of Mt Wellington which was disappointing. Perhaps a smaller bus would have helped. Was looking forward to visiting the female convict factory as advertised but never occurred.
    Response from Host, July 2022
    Thank you for taking the time to review us and we appreciate your honest feedback. Occasionally, the road to the summit is closed due to poor weather conditions by the council. When this occurs, no vehicles are allowed to access the mountain road, so in this case a smaller vehicle wouldn't have made the difference. We do make allowances for this and provide alternate touring to another lookout with stunning views of Hobart and surrounds. We do make mention of this in our tour itineraries. With regard to the Female Factory, they have made some changes recently to their entry and ticketing system which now require a separate tour. We now advertise this as an opportunity to view the remains after the Cascade gardens visit and for the driver/guide to share the history whilst we are in the area. We apologise if you were of the understanding that entry was included. Once again we thank you for your valuable feedback and we are sorry that our tour didn't meet your expectations on this occasion.
    Good morning trip
    Andrew_B, July 2022
    Good host and spectacular views fro my Wellington over Hobart city and surrounding areas. Due to ice we couldn’t go to summit unfortunately
    Response from Host, July 2022
    Thank you Andrew for your 5-star review. Unfortunately, the road to the summit is closed occasionally by the Hobart City Council, due to poor weather. As you say there are other great views on the mountain and surrounding areas though. We are sorry we couldn't get you to the summit on your tour, but great to hear that you enjoyed it all the same. Many thanks again.
    Great experience
    Robert_M, June 2022
    Very competent tour guide giving relevant and interesting information with clear instructions. Would recommend to anyone visiting Hobart.
    Response from Host, July 2022
    Thank you Robert! We really appreciate you taking the time to review us and we greatly appreciate your feedback. Look forward to seeing you when you next visit.
    Great morning
    JoAnne_R, June 2022
    Unfortunately we couldn’t go to the top of the mountain due to icy conditions. But we still saw some amazing views and our driver was amazing and so knowledgeable he improvised and took us to lots of different places. Was a great morning:)
    Response from Host, June 2022
    Hi JoAnne, Thank you for your review. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed our modified version of our Mt Wellington Ultimate Experience Tour. We appreciate your understanding regarding the change to your itinerary. Occasionally a weather event will prevent us from getting to the top, but we do still have some stunning alternative views if the tour has to be modified. Thanks again and we are glad you enjoyed touring with us.
