OMG! Was the most amazing trip, Phil and the other guides were Superb! I can't imagine not having done this trip! Trust me the views, the aquatic life and the guides made this trip one I will cherish for the rest of my life!
With our short stay in Tasmania we really appreciated how we where taken care of
I love this trip! It's intimate and exciting; the Tasman Peninsula and Island are amazing!!! We also had a close encounter with the dolphins, albatross and fur seals, including the Comanche - sailboat from Sydney. Port Arthur is interesting. Definitely this is a lot better than Milford Sound!!!
What a fantastic day. The group was small being a Saturday due to the usual attraction of the Salamanca markets. Morning tea and lunch were both provided and beyond what was expected. The driver for the day 'Phil' was friendly and warm. The boat ride is the best experience and port Arthur beautiful.
Excellent tour, and much more adrenalin than I had expected (particularly if the sea is a choppy). Scenery is amazing and team running the trip were entertaining and professional - thoroughly recommended
Loved the tour, all the guides were so well informed and take great pride in their work. We had a memorable day and would recommend to all.
Great day well worth the trip awsome coast line with great crew Ange and Damo on fantastic boat
This is one of the best tours I have taken. The scenery and wildlife of the Tasman Peninsula speak for themselves, but what made this tour so good were the knowledgable, capable, and friendly staff, especially on the boat portion. One got the idea that the boat crew were truly interested in the subject themselves, and wanted to share their passion with the visitors, making sure to enter the most interesting caves and pointing out the tiniest of wildlife. The Port Arthur site is very interesting and worth a visit; any suggestions I have are for the PA folks themselves, as we were left to the PA guides for the walk-around; there were 70 people in our group at that point and we didn't stay with them. However, we found that on our own, the historical site itself suffers from very poor signage (OK once a person reaches a building, but it's very hard to keep checkiing the rough sketch map instead of reading road signs, even when one knows where one wants to go). This is not viator's fault, but perhaps could pass this on to PA. The PA museum is great; overall, the PA portion was also worth the visit.
It was amazing, best boat trip we have ever taken, spectacular scenery, brilliant crew..... Just amazing .
My trip to the Tasman Peninsula and Port Arthur Historic Site was an excellent introduction to my time in Tasmania. The staff were very friendly and efficient and helped immensely in making the day a very memorable one for me to start my Tasmanian experience.
