An exceptional day tour with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, we loved every second! We had a great bus driver, thanks Phil for taking such good care of us. The absolute highlight was the eco cruise with Dammo & Andrew, it was breathtakingly beautiful & it was so obvious how much our guides loved their jobs & the Tasman Peninsula. We enjoyed Port Arthur, but it was a snapshot of the historic site & we rushed around after eating lunch to cram as much of it in as possible. Thanks to everyone involved for a wonderful day!!

The tour was amazing! From the start to finish! The marine tour in the boat is very interesting, we got to see wild seals and birds nesting on the formations of the rocks. Saw amazing rocks along the shore! Then travelled to port Arthur where we got to spent 2,5 hours with tour guide walk and ferry tour as well. Overall I will recommend to enjoy it while you in Hobart! Big thanks to tour guide!

Love the cruise ride!

Very attentive and patience guides and counter staff. Although it's a big group, the guys in charge of the cruise ride make sure everybody was well taken care of (gone through all the safety procedures with us and also offered us biscuits in case we were hungry). So overall a very nice experience.
