Great tour guide - Tom.
Visited Cascade Gardens, female prison, Battery Point, Rosny Hill lookout, Botanical gardens. Adam was our guide and he was excellent because he was very knowledgeable, helpful and obviously loved Hobart and sharing it with others.

Great informative tour botanical gardens were beautiful. MONA art gallery is really worth visiting!
Great tour. Friendly, knowledgeable and humourous guide with a passion for his profession and Tasmania. Comfy mini coach. Lots of interesting stops along the way. Amazing food, cheese, honey and chocolate. This area of Tassie is a must see location with lots of photo opportunities. Saw a massive pod of dolphins frolicking in the crystal clear waters. Could not fault this tour.
Absolutely awesome boat tour of the South East coastline, unforgettable scenery.

Excellent tour - recommended as a must-do if you're visiting Hobart.
We were lucky in that the weather was quite pleasant. It does get quite cold and occasionally bumpy on the cruise, but full-length rain jackets and even ginger tablets to help with seasickness are provided. Got to see seals, seabirds, dolphins and whales. Lots of opportunities to take photos no matter where on the boat you're sitting at.
Morning tea and lunch simple but filling is included with the tour, had a few snacks on the boat as well.
The time spent at Port Arthur was also sufficient - there's a walking tour and a boat cruise good for a short rest after the earlier exciting cruise. We got back to Hobart around 6:30pm the Tasman Peninsula went overtime as we spotted whales
A good trip to take to see more than just the city sights. The drive through Battery Park was great. Going into the Anglesea Barracks and wandering around to see all the memorials to past conflicts was excellent. The gardens at the Cascade Brewery were lovely and it was good to see the Brewery but I would have liked to have been able to tour the brewery. The Female Factory was very interesting, disappointing we were not allowed to go into the cottage but it was very interesting anyway. The drive over the Tasman bridge and then to the lookout was lovely and wandering around the Botanical Gardens was a treat just would have liked a little more time to wander the gardens.

Great day out.
Wonderful day full of delicious food, wonderful views and lots of yarns! Highly recommend this full day experience!
Our trip to Tasman Peninsula and Port Arthur was a very enjoyable day.
The day began with Phil our Bus Driver who filled us in on what would be seeing during the day and the local information as we made our way to Pirates Cove where we would stop for a morning tea break .After the morning tea stop we boarded the bus for a short journey to the wharf where we meet the boat .
The boat was crewed by Tim Skipper and Damien they were very professional in the way they made sure everyone was aware of all things related to safety whilst on the journey. On our way to Tasman Island we made various stops along the way for photo's of places of interest the boat was manovered so every one mad a chance to get some photo's . As we moved further down the coast towards Tasman Island we were told to look out for Whales sure enough there was Whales ,Seals and Dolphins spotted plus a mixture of different seabirds.
When we arrived at Tasman Island we stopped for sort time to take photo's and to get some history on the Island before heading back to Pirates Cove along the way the crew handed out some snacks .
On arrival back at Pirates Cove we boarded the bus for the journey to Port Arthur on arrival we had a very nice lunch which was part of the tour before joining a 45 minute guided tour of the Historical Site .We could then stroll through the site for the remainder of our three hours making sure to leave time to shop for souvenirs before rejoining the bus for the return to Hobart. A very enjoyable day and many thanks to Phil ,Tim and Damien
Our guide, Michael was knowledgable and very enthusiastic about all on Bruny Island. He gave us a wonderful day.
Great day out on Bruny Island. Ben, our guide was excellent. The lunch at Hotel Bruny was fantastic. The view from the top of the lighthouse was amazing. Would have liked a few more tastings as we only visited a couple of places.
Absolutely amazing experience!! Breath taking! The coat was great since it was sooo cold! Definitely the highlight of our Tasmanian vacation.
Unfortunately it was a very wet day that I took this tour but in saying that it was very good and informative and tour guide Elise was very good. The ferry ride to Mona was excellent though I was not impressed by the gallery at all. The structure and the idea is excellent but the exhibits were not to my liking nor understanding. This is no reflection on the tour provider just my personal opinion of the gallery.
Fantastic tour made even better by our wonderful tour guide, Michael. Great food, great trip and a beautiful island to explore with Bruny Island Sightseeing and Gourmet Tour. Picked up from our Hotel on time and dropped back after a wonderful day exploring and eating!
The boat trip was amazing. All staff were so friendly and informative. I'd recommend this tour operator and do another trip with them if I ever come back to Hobart. Fantastic day!
fantastic, knowledgeable, local guide. Interesting history, beautiful scenery, fabulous food.
A must do tour on any trip to Tassie
This was an excellent tour with lots of colour ,great hosts and beautiful scenery. The day could not have been better.
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 exceptional and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this adventure. We had a really great tour guide who took the time to learn the name of every one on the bus. When he discovered that someone was excited about a particular Aussie thing he made sure to try and incorporate that into the trip. I upgraded to the Devil Sanctuary trip and was delighted at how up and close we got to get with the animals in the Unzoo. It was evident that the people working there were passionate about preservation and even stood in the rain to talk to guests about the animals and their experiences.

Well worth the money. Really great and enjoyable day, rate it up there with one of the best day tours we have done. Just the right amount of time and got us back into Hobart by 5:00pm. Keegan the guide very knowledgeable and went out of his way to please. All the food and cider tastings lived up to expectations. Would not hesitate to recommend to everyone.
