A very beautiful historical site that you must travel to learn about the history of Tasmania.
The tour was brilliant! The bus driver/guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, I am unable to climb steep surfaces, but received assistance from the Trolley/Cart driver who roams the site assisting where required. He was able to drive us to the top of Port Arthur where I was able to really get a good view of the ruins. Only downside was I felt the tour could have been a little shorter as it felt like a very long day. Overall a wonderful experience
Excellent. On time, comfortable (even though full) with enough time at all stops. Competent driver with entertaining commentary.
Beautiful landscape over the area, so it was a bit hard to imagine the horror once existed here. Partly rainy day, but it didn't matter, because you can hide inside the buildings and explore them during the rain. It was also nice to stop to take some photos during the way to Port Arthur. Knowledgeable guide.
A bit pricey for what you get, but well organised and hassle free.
Would have been great if the weather had not been so miserable.
Everything is the same as the rating.
We missed the bus....but grey line gave us another tour to russel fall
Bad service from the tour guide! He arrived at the hotel about 15 mins before pick up time and rang the bell a hundred times! My mum and I lived in Elms of Hobart, which is a very old but fabulous house and we were embarrassed becasue the tour guide woke up everyone in the house! He made me feel he is angry with us. I think he does not love his job at all. For the whole day, he did not talk with customers, careless, cold and sometimes impolite. The worst thing is he asked for tips at the end of the day. To those who gave him a dollar or more, he behaved like their old brother who did not want to say goodbye. To those who gave him nothing, like me,he behaved like we were totally invisible in his eyes. I do not think his performance deserves any tip. Anyway, this day tour disappointed me very much. Although Port Arthur is a fabulous place, our mood was ruined by the guide from the beginning of the day. I have to say WE HAD A BAD DAY!!!
