A fantastic experience
Mar 2020
Day 1 - The weather on the day of the tour was not ideal, lightly raining nearly the entire day, but I still had a lot of fun. The day started early picking everyone up from their hotels before making a quick stop shortly outside on Hobart for anyone wanting to grab a quick coffee/snack and use the restroom before getting on with the day. We made our way to the Waterfall Bay Cliff Top Walk and seeing the Tasman National Park highlights including the Devil's Kitchen and Tasman Arch. The walk itself was pretty easy. From there, we made our way to the Unzoo where we got to feed kangaroos and see a Tasmanian Devil being fed. We then went to the Port Arthur Historic Site which had two small cafes to purchase lunch from and much to see. You are free to roam about and explore as you want. The tour also included a short cruise through the bay. I personally enjoyed a glass of wine and snacks while listening to the commentary from the guide. After leaving Port Arthur, we made a stop at the Federation Chocolate Factory where we tried unique flavors of chocolates. Last stop on the trip was Richmond where we were able to walk around and explore the various shops on our own.

Day 2 - The weather on the day of the tour was again not ideal, still lightly raining nearly the entire day. However, similar to the prior day, this did not detract from the overall experience much. The day started early picking everyone up from their hotels before making a quick stop shortly outside of Hobart for anyone needing to purchase lunch to take with them for the day. We made one additional stop along a beach before getting to the Freycinet National Park. From there, we had three options of walks, a short walk to a cafe/lunch spot, a walk to Wineglass Bay Lookout (a 45-minute uphill walk), or the option to extend your walk to the actual sands of Wineglass Bay (approximately 2.5 hours). Normally, I would have chosen the longer walk, but given the weather was rainy, and the guide advised there were a couple of sections of the walk to be careful on, our group of four opted for the walk to the lookout. Two of the members of the group stopped halfway to the lookout before turning to head towards the van as it was an uphill climb and a bit too much for them. After taking in the views overlooking Wineglass Bay, we headed to Honeymoon Bay and did the Cape Tourville Lighthouse Walk. The description says you stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for oysters, but we did not, so maybe that is a seasonal thing. We did make a stop for coffee/snacks/ice cream, though before heading to Launceston.

Day 3 - Again, the day started early picking everyone up from their hotels and heading to the first stop, a place offering coffee and all sort of breakfast/lunch options for eat-in or takeaway. After purchasing our breakfast/lunch for the day, we headed towards Cradle Mountain. The first walk was a short but peaceful walk inside the national park. We then hopped back into the van to drive deeper into the national park and closer to Cradle Mountain. We parked by Dove Lake where the guide explained the various options for trails before we all parted ways. A girl I had met on the bus and myself opted for the hike up to Marion's Lookout together. It was a difficult upward climb, especially since we were moving at a fairly quick pace. It took us approximately an hour to reach the top, but once we got up there the views were spectacular. Because we had made such good time, we were able to relax and have lunch without being rushed. Once finished, we headed down towards Dove Lake. The climb down was steeper than expected, but they have a chain rope most of the way you can hold onto. I was grateful for this when my foot slipped a couple of times on the loose stone. We were good on time so we were also able to do the walk around Dove Lake (counter-clockwise from the parking lot). There were a couple of spots with an uphill climb, but this was much easier than the hike up to Marion's lookout. Once we all met back at the van, we drove to another area of the park for a brief chance to roam around and try to spot wombats. Last stop on the tour was to the Ashgrove Cheese Factory to sample cheeses and purchase goodies or ice cream.

Overall, the days were long and tiring. By the end of my trip, I was exhausted. However, I would do it all again. I was able to see and do so much, and the guides were friendly, knowledgeable and experienced, making every day more enjoyable and run smoothly.

An amazing tour - not to be missed!!
Feb 2020
This tour did everything we wanted, and more. It was very well organised and excellent value for money. We loved every minute of it. The early departures and long days enabled you to see and do so much. Historic Port Arthur was probably the highlight of the first day, although the visit to 'Unzoo" - where most animals simply roam in the natural environment - was a very special place. The scenic walk clifftop walk and various viewpoint stops were simply stunning. And Richmond and the Hobart City Lookout rounded the day off in style. Freycinet National Park and the views of Wineglass Bay from the lookout were stunning - well worth the climb up and down. Lunch at Honeymoon Bay provided an opportunity to relax in a calm and scenic environment. The final day, Cradle Mountain, was probably one of the highlights of our entire trip round Australia. All aspects of the day were simply wonderful, from the short walks to the hike around Dove Lake, where we were able to see several examples of wildlife. The guides were excellent. Day one - Dan. knowledgeable, enthusiastic and humorous. Day three - Rod. Again, knowledgeable and quietly enthusiastic about all aspects of Cradle Mountain, the environment and its wildlife. The air conditioned buses were comfortable and the baggage trailer they towed on day 2 meant there was no restrictions on luggage, ideal for us as we were on a six week trip around Australia. This trip ticks all the boxes, especially if you are limited for time. Highly recommended.

Active Tour in Scenic Destinations
Dec 2019
This tour is very good value for money. There are several stops each day and all the entrance fees are included in the full cost of the tour. Pick-up and drop-off are very prompt, and the tour guides are friendly, knowledgeable and very efficient. We were three seniors travelling on this tour and the each of the tour guides were flexible in allowing us to do as much or as little active participation as we wanted or could. Even if we did not take all the walks, we still took some beautiful photographs.
Wear sensible walking shoes, hats, water, sunscreen and light jacket as it can get cold in some areas you will visit.

Not too bad of a tour, just some things to watch out for
Oct 2019
The 3 day tour managed to cover most of the tourist area that you would want to visit while in Tasmania. Being on a tour, the timing would sure be really tight and you would have to quickly complete what you want to do before moving on to the next place. The tour guides were all very knowledgeable, and the guide that brought us on the cradle mountain tour explained to us in detail about the history of the plants and the place which you would not be able to know of if you did not follow him.

One thing to note, we were brought to the "Federation Chocolate" on the second day of the tour if I'm not wrong, and the samples were really nice so we bought over 10 packs of chocolates. However upon flying home and trying the chocolates, it tasted so different from the samples that we had tried, in a bad way, that we've decided to throw them all away as it was really inedible. Not sure if the samples are different from the products that were sold, I really hope not. But maybe you would like to buy one pack there to taste it first before buying more. Do note that the time you have there to buy is very tight too, so you would have to buy it quick to taste it.
The other pit stops had good ice creams, so that was nice!

If you are travelling with a person who would need the toilet frequently, do note that the vehicle is a small van/bus which does not have a restroom, and the journeys can be quite long (1-2 hours), thus it can be stressful for that person.

Excellent tour with helpful tour guides
Oct 2019 • Couples
Thanks so much to Connor, Andrew and Rod (our tour guides) for going out of their way to help me get back the stuff I had left behind in the tour bus mistakenly on two consecutive days (first day, chocolates and second day, my camera), and for not throwing us out of the tour for being so negligent. Overall, an excellent tour of a beautiful place.

Brilliant Big 3!
Mar 2018 • Couples
This tour was a fantastic way to cover lots of Tasmanian highlights & also a great way to combine visiting both Hobart & Launceston. On this tour we saw & did so much - stunning scenery, fascinating history & getting closer to the native wildlife. Plenty of walking too but always options to suit different requirements eg hard, medium & easy walks at Cradle Mountsin & plenty of guidance on which would be best for you. My personal favourites were feeding roos & wallabies at the Unzoo & the visit to Port Arthur.
We had great guides for our tour - Clint, Dan, Graeme & Steve - they work so hard combining giving commentary with a lot of driving & making sure we all got the best out of the tour - thank you to you all!

Best tour I did in Australia
Feb 2018 • Solo
I did the 3-day Hobart to Launceston tour including Port Arthur, Freycinet National Park, and Cradle Mountain National Park. A different guide each day -- Nick, David, and Graeme were all fantastic and organized. The Dove Lake Circuit the 3rd day was very rainy but they provided raincoats. I recommend bringing an extra sweatshirt and socks to change into if you get wet. The Unzoo was fantastic (day 1), and Graeme on the 3rd day made sure we saw a wombat. There were lots of stops to use the toilet and grab food. I highly recommend this tour!

Great itinerary and great guide Greyam
We took this tour because we wanted to cover the best destinations in Tasmania in 3 days and it did just that. The tour is very well planned and our Guide from Launceston - Greyam was a star. He explained everything so well, answered all questions and made sure we did everything we wanted to by keeping time. His sense of humor and level of fitness is also quite amazing. He kept the tour very flexible for us. 2-3 options in each place to choose from (depending on your level of fitness) as this trip can involve quite a few hikes and mountain climbing if you are up for it. Overall, wonderful experience and I would highly recommend - especially if you like outdoor activities such as hiking.

Great views & super guides
Oct 2017 • Solo
This tour offered a great introduction to Tasmania. We travelled to several important and interesting places, while learning about the history of the state and the country. The tour worked for me because it featured a small group (10-12 people) travelling in a van. With this size of group, the tour guide was able to interact with all of the group. A shout out to the 3 guides, Nick, Clint and Graeme. All were personable, knowledgable and passionate about their Tasmanian roots.
