    I think whoever wants to visit Tasmania for a short period of time and want to make the best out of it, I recommend this tour. Tasmania is indeed very beautiful and the tour was well planned. Sometimes we would have to rush while walking and couldn’t spend enough time in some places but I guess otherwise we wouldn’t be able to see as many... Hostels that we have stayed varied in quality. I personally liked the one in Strahan the most and the good thing is that we stayed there two nights. I wish the tour guide in the beginning of the tour let us introduce ourselves like we did in Melbourne “go west-great ocean road tour”. Even on the fifth day we wouldn’t know each others names whereas in a day tour that I spend in Melbourne everybody had an idea who is who. I just recommend that to the tour company. All and all, I do recommend this tour especially if you are traveling alone or make the most out of Tasmania in restricted amount of time.

    Absolutely LOVED this tour. So much to see, and our driver Ben, was a wealth of information. We can highly recommend this tour and would definitely do it again. The Waldheim Chalet and park was the biggest suprise. The moss forest was breathtaking. We had the best time, even as it was a drizzling most of the day. The only unfortunate thing was the Cheese factory was closed (due to renovations) but Ben our driver took us to a Raspberry farm which was just as wonderful.
