It was a very intimate tour, very well organized, the established schedules were met. The pick-up in Hobart was on time, the bus was very good, the guide was excellent. The stopping places along the way (chocolate shop and lavander place) are very nice. Arrival at Porth Arthur on time, and then a descent to the beach with spectacular views. It is an unmissable tour. Spectacular.

JADE WAS UNREAL!!! We had the best time ever on this tour, this facts were spooky and were delivered fantastically from Jade. She spoke clearly, directly and was a fantastic host. It is so great to have a walking tour around the back streets of Sydney around the harbour. Highly recommend to those in to Crime and gore! Thanks again!

A ride along the river in Launceston, through the truly spectacular Gorge waterfall. A quiet ride, to see very beautiful landscapes. Communication with the company is excellent. They are supremely responsible. An unmissable tour. I congratulate you and thank you.

Port Arthur is a spectacular site, historically well preserved, the ride along the bay is beautiful, the guide is very good. I think it is an unmissable tour. The area is beautiful.
