Brilliant tram tour of Hobart with very informative and funny driver. A must if it's your first time in Hobart and have limited time but purchase on the day rather than pre book as it is cheaper.

This was a great Hobart tour.
The botanic gardens were amazing. They gave 45 minutes to visit the gardens. We could have spent the whole day there.
