What You Can Expect
Your tour takes in other sights during the drive between Hobart and the summit of Mt Wellington, including St David’s Park, Arthur’s Circus and the mountain town of Ferntree. Pass by the boutiques of Battery Point; see Anglesea Barracks, one of Australia’s oldest army facilities; admire fine examples of early Hobart homes in South Hobart; drive through Cascade Valley; pass through the different coastal and alpine ecosystems as you ascend the mountain; visit the remnants of the Female Factory, a one-time female prison; and see Macquarie Street.
An excellent half-day tour. We were lucky to have an exceptionally clear day, with relatively little wind and warm temperature. The guide was excellent, the mini-bus comfortable, thoroughly recommend.
The tour was most enjoyable and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and amicable. We were blessed with a picture perfect view from the summit of Mt Wellington. I would recommend this tour to anyone with limited time, it gives you a nice 'snapshot' of Hobart.

GREAT MORNING TRIP UP A REALLY HIGH ALPINE MOUNTAIN THAT IS CLOSE TO THE CBD!
DEFINITELY WEAR WARM COATS AS THE TEMP WAS FREEZING. IT WAS APPROX 1 DEGREES CELSIUS CONSTANT WIND CHILL FACTOR WHEN IT WAS 11 DEGREES IN THE CITY. SPECTACULAR SCENERY! CHRIS and SCOTT BRYSON

Magnificent views......when the mist doesn't come over. You do take your chances with the weather on this one. It also gets very cold on top of the mountain so take warmer clothes. The rest of the tour was very good and the tour guide was interesting.
The views from Mt Welllington was beautiful. And having the clouds go through you was surreal. Thank you to the Driver Guide for arranging the additional trip to see the Tasmanian Devils and the city tour.
We had an amazing time on this tour, even though it was not the best view from the top of Mt. Wellington,due to the weather, the view half way up was still incredible. Very informative driver/guide, was a lot of fun.
We would certainly recommend this tour.
Brilliant!. There were a couple of stops on the way back that were a complete surprise, probably places we would never have visited ourselves. The commentary on the way to Mount Wellington was very informative and there was ample time to look around and take photos. There were no hiccups with our booking at all.
We enjoyed being driven up Mt Wellington. Very lucky to have a clear day. Spectacular views and very informative guide. Thanks.

We wrer really lucky to have a beautiful day weather wise, so our trip up to Mt. Wellington was amazing, great views and the drivers were very fun to travel with.
Outstanding! Lots of snow and gale force winds at the summit which was not entirely expected. It was quite an experience! Calling in at the beautiful Cascade Brewery on the way back to Hobart in bright sun, was a real contrast.
