I had a great day on Bruny Island, enjoying the beautiful views, food and wine tasting. A very nice lunch was included too. Keegan was the guide accompanying us that day. He was informative, humorous and very friendly. He took good care of each of us, making the tour delightful and comfortable. Thank you so much! :
Great day on Bruny Island with a wonderful guide. We really enjoyed our tour and all of the food samples. Our Guide, Ben was very passionate and knowledgeable about this special part of Australia. Was a relatively small tour with only a group of 10. We got lucky with the weather and got some beautiful views from the lighthouse in particular. Each of our food stops appears to have been carefully chosen as each of them was very proud of their produce and eager to share it with our group. Would definitely recommend to fellow travellers.
Rick was very informative and the day was just great! Definitely is a must do when you go to Tasmania!
Fantastic tour and such a beautiful picturesque place . Rick the tour guide made it very interesting and informative . Would definitely recommend it to anyone . - Mark
A delightful day with a small group of fellow tourists and an enthusiastic and knowledgable guide. Difficult to imagine how it could be bettered.
What a wonderful way to see Bruny Island. Thank you Aaron for your amazing knowledge and delightful way of imparting that to us. We loved every minute of it.We would highly recommend this tour to anyone thinking about visiting Bruny Island.
Thank you Ben for your guidance around Bruny Island. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
I didn't expect the weather to hold up for us, but it did. It started magnificently with a view of the sunrise from the departing feery wharf. The tour guide Ben was awesome, so enthusiastic and chilled out at the same time. He gave us great stories along the way and made the experience amazing!
Really beautiful trip and lovely lunch and oysters. Great guide. Could go the rest of my life without the cheese though.
It was an unforgettable trip. Tim was awesome and v. caring. Mixed of gourmet and nice scenery. Lunch was fabulous I had a seafood chowder at the hotel, 5-star menu I'd say. Oyster, wine, cheese and more...Good value. The experience was priceless!!! I was a solo traveller. Highly recommended
Value for money - excellent. Our tour guide was excellent, knowledgeable, had a clear speaking voice, polite, friendly, all one would wish for from a guide. The tastings were interesting, lunch at the hotel tasty, and loved the chocolate tasting to finish the tour. A very pleasant day for our group.
Great day, sight seeing, a great tour guide and local produce combined to make this a must do tour
This was a wonderful tour led by our amazingly knowledgeable and friendly guide Tim. There was a good mix of sightseeing and food, The day started with an early morning ferry crossing followed by morning tea at Berry Farm. A couple of hours sightseeing included a lot of historical interest a well as the natural beauty of Bruny Island. The gourmet part started around 11.30 with a wine tasting, followed by a delicious lunch and visits to local specialists - chocolate and fudge, cheeses, oysters, ice cream, relishes and pates, more chocolate and whisky. I couldn't have managed another morsel. This tour really is a must
A great day. The pick up was easy to arrange and on time, it was a small group of 9. The places visited were interesting and the food sampled on the trip was first rate.
I highly recommend this tour as it is a great way to appreciate the variety that a trip to Hobart has to offer. Driving out of Hobart and passing the beautiful suburbs of Hobart and listening to the commentary of Tim, our very knowledgeable driver/guide, one can feel the pride that residents have on their island and community. Learning about the history and prominent features of the small towns even before experiencing the ferry ride was already a treat. The ferry trip itself was orderly, short and picturesque.
Then we get to the island and we learn of the indigenous people that used to occupy the twin islands. Interesting story but sad as well. A lot of lessons for visitors.
The relatively flat North Island contrasted with the rugged South Island. The isthmus connecting them is something to behold and the lookout point is worth the many steps it takes to reach it. Be prepared for windy and chilly conditions. Take the iconic pictures and move on. There are more treats to follow.
Driving on the gravel and sandy roads of the islands was not really as expected. There were no potholes and it was as smooth as driving on paved roads. Going over the mountain from the East to the West side of the island was interesting. No signs of civilisation for many kilometres on single lane gravel roads could be unnerving but it was exciting and expertly and safely managed by Tim. Along the way, we spied wallabies, including the albino ones.
Continuing the trip, we were treated to fantastic bays and coves, picturesque towns and, of course the old light station. All worth taking out the big cameras for wide and tele shots. We were lucky with the weather, but in poor conditions, it would probably be very windy and chilly.
After the feast for the eyes, it was time for the feast for the stomach, and the tour did not disappoint. The lunch at the Bruny Hotel was superb and the various tasting stops in the afternoon, particularly the oysters, completed the tour. Excellent!
excellent organisation and fabulous stops taking in breathtaking sights and amazing food. Our guide Ben was a wealth of knowledge and his passion for Bruny Island was contagious. I thoroughly recommend this day out for everyone.
Great day, very nice tourguide, perfect organisation, wonderful island and awesome food!! We definitely recommend the tour!
Our guide, Andy, was really friendly and helpful. The tour was well planned and went very smoothly. The places are all worth visiting and we love Bruny Island
My only frustration was all the 'reminder emails' from Viator, which I could not process/print (I was travelling in the days immediately ahead of this day trip). After I made telephone contact with the operator, there was no further need for these frustrating emails.
