Our experience in Hobart and the trip to Port Arthur were wonderful! Our tour guide/bus driver, Adam, was personable and relayed so much interesting history of the city to us in a way that you could tell how much he loved his home city of Hobart. The day trip to Port Arthur was also interesting and enjoyable as was the 90 minute bus drive to Port Arthur and the trip back. Our driver served us with lots of interesting information as well. We really would have stayed in Hobart/Tasmania longer had our schedule allowed for it. I would rate our tour 5 out of 5!
This tour was wonderful! We learned some very interesting things about Port Arthur. The guides were very knowledgeable and had stories to make the history come alive! I would recommend this tour for anyone!
The tours were easy to book, efficient and well worth the price. The tours were great and were completed over two days, on the first day we were shown the sites of Hobart and on Day two we were taken to Port Arthur, both tours were very informative and enjoyable, both coach drivers, one on each day, were also our guides on each day, both were pleasant, very knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful where necessary. Definitely worth the price and would gladly book using viator in the future.
Excellent. Half day Hobart tram tour was a little rushed. Having said this we saw and learned much more of Hobart than expected if we had done on our own. We returned to several sites later in our own time. Port Arthur tour is a full day. We didn't rush around, visiting only half the site before sitting down for an awesome lunch in the cafe before boat and Isle of the dead tours. Looking forward to return visit to complete tour.
Both drivers were also our tour guides and where knowledgeable and informative with both history and local topics providing excellent commentary. Both captains cannot praise enough. Highly recommend both bus tours.
Hobart half day sightseeing tour was very good value. We had enough time at each sight to see everything that the tour director/bus driver had mentioned in his preview.
Port Arthur Tour was a great day trip. Sue our tour director was very friendly and helpful with lots of information, this added to our enjoyment of the day. AG

FANTASTIC TRIP - GREAT BUS DRIVER COLIN - GRAYLINE BUSES ARE THE BEST. GOOD TOUR GUIDE ON A REALLY BEAUTIFUL HISTORICAL SITE. HAD A FANTASTIC TIME. CHRIS and SCOTT BRYSON
Really enjoyed both of these tours, the Tram Tour gave a great insight to what Hobart has to offer and the Port Arthur Tour was very educational and a 'must see' tour for all visitors to Tasmania
Value for money, highly enjoyable, easiest way to do it.
Great sighting seeing! The driver / guide was funny, knowledgeable and responsible. I will recommend this tour to my friends.
Excellent! Friendly, informative and comprehensive. Far more than i could have seen on my own and a great way to see Hobart and orientate yourself quickly. Well worth it.
I will highly recommend this tour. The driver/tour guide was very knowledgeable and articulate. Thanks viator! You're the best!
very enjoyable and informative
Great tour, both drivers/guides we had were very knowledgeable about the areas we visited great tours.
Both tours were very entertaining and informative. Will recommend to anyone. The Hobart Coach Tram tour was great as it gave an overview to the city which then allowed us to go to the places that interested us.
The Tram trip was interesting and showed far more of Hobart than we expected. The driver was knowledgeable and fun and we enjoyed the experience.
Port Arthur was also a really interesting day out. We had an initial talk by a Guide before being let loose to make our own way round the larger than anticipated site. A bit spooky in places but certainly worth a visit with lots of photo opportunities.
What a fun day and the driver was very informative and knew the history well. He was on time to collect us in a very clean small bus.
It went all as stated.we had agreat time
The tour was really good, there's lots to see and are given ample time to fit it all in.
This was a fantastic opportunity to experience the history of a place like Port Arthur. The tour from the moment of pickup through to delivery back to the hotel was professional and courteous. The tour driver was A being both knowledgeable and friendly.
Port Arthur itself is wonderful. So much to see and experience. If history is your thing then this is the one tour you must take
These tours were fantastic, very informative and relaxed..
Had a great time, both the city tour and Port Arthur tour were great. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Great value, definitely recommend this company and tour.
Both my tours were excellent. Everything happened when it should have. THe tram tour was lovely as there were only a few of us on the bus so it felt very personal. The driver's (Kevin) knowledge was very in depth, so I learnt a lot in a short time.
The driver on the Port Arthur tour (Kim) was also very good. I like the fact that we were left to our own devices to look wherever we wanted. Hope to come back to Hobart again one day to do more sightseeing. Thank you for a lovely time.
An excellent tour, with great tour commentary, around a lovely city. A great way to get a sense of Hobart. Port Arthur Tour was also excellent. Great commentary, plenty of time at the site to explore and understand the history. Port Arthur is a beautiful spot, contrasted with some serious and grim history. A lovely bus tour there and back, with some stops along the way at points of interest. A gret tour for those on a short time frame, or wanting to get a quick sense of what else to see in Hobart.
Great way to start your visit. Good overview of things to do. Driver great
I really enjoyed this tour, it's a great way to see Port Arthur. The bus driver was informative on the drive down and gave advice on the 'must sees' which helped to work out where to go first. Don't miss the Separate Prison and the Commandants House which have restored and give a good example the life at Port Arthur. The walking tour of the Isle of the Dead was also a great way to hear more about the convicts and their lives.
