Absolutely fantastic! It was very informative and fun. The driver (sorry cannot remember his name ) was fabulous. He knew the area well xnd provided us with ideal commentary. He was not over the top or intrusive...very well done and we want to commend him. I have recommended your tours to all.

Thank you for a great trip to Port Arthur. Port Arthur was beautiful, eerie and awe-inspiring. It showed the strength of human character from convict settlement to the most recent tragedy. Your Driver was very knowledgeable with a great sense of humour which added to the tour. Highly recommended.

This tour was definitely worthwhile. The driver was very knowledgeable about the history of Port Arthur, giving us lots of facts while riding on the bus. There was plenty of time to tour Port Arthur to discover what it was like to be a convict or prison official during that time.

I highly recommend this historical visit to anyone who visits Hobart. It was chilly and rainy, but we still found it enjoyable and educational.

Excellent tour - bus trip interesting and informative, Port Arthur tour excellent, plenty of time to explore on your own. ! didn't expect Port Arthur to be so beautiful - some lovely gardens and impressive buildings. I learnt a great deal - there were 'horrors, but there was also a rehabilitation program of training in trades. Very interesting and enjoyable day.

The bus trip to Port Arthur was very informative and relaxing. Port Arthur is a national treasure. After the initial talk by the guide we were left to explore on our own. What a memorable and beautiful place. Thank you Tasmania for looking after our heritage so well. I think schools should send their classes there to to appreciate our own history.

Mostly self-guided but a gorgeous setting, so much history and the terrific weather was a nice benefit!
