This was the highlight of my holiday to Hobart Tasmania. The tour was on time, the operator was very good and friendly and being a small bus there was 18 of us she made us feel very relaxed. The falls are easy to get to for any type of ability wheelchair , walking stick/frame etc however the falls above Russell Falls which are called Horseshoe Falls are only accessible via a steep but safe series of rock and wooden steps, but well worth the effort if you can. When you first reach Russell Falls I was lucky as they were in full flow just takes ones breath away at their sheer majesty, same for Horseshoe Falls . You get plenty of time to explore and have a lovely lunch at the café on site at the park entrance. Morning tea is provided at a salmon hatchery with lovely English style gardens with loads of exotic trees . It is a whole day tour and takes you via scenic valleys on both sides of the Derwent River. Again my luck held out as it was a most beautiful and warm day but come prepared as the weather can change in an instant. My booking with viator was flawless and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. A magic day to remember forever along with many photos. DO THIS TOUR you will never regret it.

Very relaxing and beautiful scenic tour on Derwent Valley and Mt Field National Park. Rod did a great job! He provided very informative tour especially the history of the New Norfolk Tasmania. Really enjoy this tour. Thanks, Rod!
A great day, informative, friendly driver/guide, lots to see, unhurried and not crowded. The park itself is amazing with some fabulously tall eucalypts, wildlife and a very pretty and impressive waterfall at the end of a pleasant forest walk.
The trout farm we visited on the way was very interesting backed up with coffee and crepes, who could ask for more!
Wonderful trip, we have plenty of time to enjoy the forest walk, experienced the primitive atmosphere while walking under big tall trees, being surrounded by fallen trees and the unforgettable view of Russell Falls.
Great degree of freedom, no rush during the tour and excellent morning tea
A very pleasant trip. Lovely walk downhill through the national park - some interesting commentary and two waterfalls along the way. Saw trout being reared at the salmon ponds on the way up and a trout in the creek at the park.
It was a great trip, only 3 of us, so a nice clean mini-bus to travel in. When we got to Russell Falls and started walking, the guide (driver) Phil, took the mini-bus down so we only walked to the falls and down to meet the bus. This was fine, no issues, however, Phil's partner who was coming along to take photo's for a brochure was not as educated on the rain forest so I believe we missed out on learning a lot. She was really nice and easy to talk to, but i'd have preferred someone with more knowledge about the falls, rain forest, animals etc. Having said that, it was well organised, easy to book on line and enjoyable!
Guide was great, but the falls weren't that spectacular.
