Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Cadbury Chocolate Factory Tour and Derwent River Cruise from Hobart. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
This was a great tour by bus and river cruise, and all questions were answered. They both had lots of knowledge of Hobart. It was a bit disappointing that at Cadburys we weren't able to walk through the Factory while they were making chocolate. However, apparently they are looking at reopening it so that we can walk through the factory again when safety measures have been implemented. When this happens I will definitely rebook. The bus tour guide very friendly and helpful, and the cruise staff were very friendly also.
A fantastic day. The luncheon was a little sparse with little choice, but was filling and healthy. The staff both in the office and on the cruise were first rate!
This was most enjoyable. Unfortunately workplace health and safety laws forbade us from seeing the process, but we were shown an informative video with a live presenter on hand to answer any questions. The staff at Cadbury were friendly and helpful which added to the enjoyment.
This was a great day out with plenty to see. Take a camera, as the boat trip goes past plenty of historic landmarks!
The coach trip and the tour of the factory was excellent, however, we were very upset when on the return boat cruise our children were not given lunch as we had paid for and it clearly stated on our ticket voucher. The hostess was most unhelpful and other families with children were treated the same. Luckily for us other travellers who had seen what was going on offered their lunch to our children. We were going to complain when we got to the dock at Hobart but could not find anyone.
Wonderful! What a great way to do things, being picked up then taking a cruise back to where you started from with lunch provided was fabulous.
Loved the tour, but the voucher times were confusing. The factory tour was very informative and as soon as we were off the bus the aroma of chocolate hit our olfactory nerves and we were off to chocolate heaven. Free samples before and after and just the sight of chocolates on the conveyor belts was fantastic. It was great to get there, with my 11 year old daughter, as this has been an ambition of mine since I was about 11!! Very good.
The overall trip was excellent. Our bus driver was great, the trip in the factory was a little bit of a let down though.
The tour of the factory was very interesting and enjoyable. Time spent in waiting room was a disappointment - merchandise not varied or different.
We had a ball, but we're disappointed we didn't get to see many working areas of the factory. Bus and boat trip were wonderful. Bus tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
The cruise was very interesting and good fun!
The trip was well worth doing. Coaches were very reliable and comfortable. We were well informed along the way on all the highlights of Hobart and the history behind the attractions. The Cadbury factory was interesting.
Definitely worthwhile. We enjoyed it, and would definitely do it again.
I thought the Cadbury tour was very disappointing as you only got to watch a video you didn't get to see them actually making any of the chocolate. A good idea to overcome all the Work Health and Safety aspects would be to have tours but with viewing windows at least that way it is safe and you can still see the chocolate being made and probably have a sample bin where everyone could have one sample of either "seconds" or broken chocolate that they cannot sell. Other than that all our bookings were great. Thank you for your assistance. Will definitely use you again next time, just have to save up some more money.
