Island Intrigue

Great food, great landscape, and interesting history at lighthouse. Everything is organised for you.
Excellent value for money trip

Jeff was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Just the right amount of commentary along the way. The morning stop for fresh oysters and local cheese was great. Lunch was great too as were the afternoon tastings. Lots of stops for photo opportunities and comfort breaks. Well done Jeff, a highly recommended tour!

Agnes_L, Jan 2023
I am a solo person. It was good to have all tasting included, otherwise I am not able to taste those beautiful oysters, cheese and chocolate. Interactive tour guide.
A great whirlwind tour of Bruny Island - packed a lot into the day!
David_G, Jan 2023
The tour company was really responsive in our request for child seats as we have a 2 and a 5 year old. Overall a great summary of Bruny island, a bit of history, and some lovely scenery and food along the way. We weren't super impressed by the food at the lunch, but I think it was a bit of a busy day there with multiple groups going through the venue.

Cecilia_W, Jan 2023
The guide gave ample time for sight seeing and food tasting. Overall, it was great experience in Bruny island.
Great day out
Louise_B, Jan 2023
The day was filled with many good experiences and was well paced. We were fortunate with beatiful weather and the views at the lighthouse were spectacular.
Excellent full day tour into nature
MichelleP_M, Dec 2022
Beautiful scenery, great food and a knowledgeable tour guide. It’s a long day and you’re on the bus a lot but seeing the Lighthouse is worth it. The lighthouse history tour was excellent and it’s a short climb to the top with great 360 degree views. Bruny island pub meal was one of the best we’ve had. Local apple and cherry cider was delicious. Guide squeezed a lot into the day.
Bruny Island Safaris are the best

A really excellent tour that you could never do on your own. The oysters were the best ever and the leatherwood honey is a treat.

Shane_M, Dec 2022
Rick was an awesome guide. His knowledge of Bruny Island was extremely good. Although this tour was a long day, I wouldn’t have wanted to miss anything that was in the tour. The entire group was friendly and interactive. Thanks Rick for an incredible day. I’d recommend it to anyone.
Top notch service and attractions
MARK_W, Dec 2022
We did the tour on Sunday 11th Dec with Phil as our tour bus driver. He did an exceptionally outstanding job with his local knowledge as well as keeping us entertained throughout the course of the day. There were many places we visited along with the taste samples of local delicacies on offer. Oysters were super fresh it melts in the house. Couldn't resist the offer of purchasing honey after the array of taste testing. We enjoyed a nice lovely morning tea picnic with an eye opening scenic view with the taste of local cheese and bread. The walk leading up towards the lighthouse sure gave my legs a good work out, but the end result was phenomenal. Once inside we made our way up the steps of the lighthouse with a breathtaking 360c view. It sure was windy. We stopped over for lunch at the Bruny Hotel, the seafood platter was exquisite all sourced from the locals. Overall, we enjoyed this experience and it's a must for those who wish to visit Bruny Island. Once again, hats off to Phil for making this experience an enjoyable and entertaining trip.
Great day out in a terrific place

Rebecca_H, Dec 2022
The lighthouse tour - tour guide informative and amazing views up the top. Steep stairs to walk up. We saw lots of rabbits & wallabies … windy so bring a wind/raincoat jacket… a nice drive up.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Hi, Thank you for your review. Are you reviewing the lighthouse tour or the weather? You have also reviewed the full day tour and not just the lighthouse tour which you joined. Strange

Loved the scenery. Great...
Dianne_B, Nov 2022
Loved the scenery. Great guide. Good group of people. Lovely lunch. Clean comfortable bus. Disappointed that the road to the lighthouse was closed as that was the main reason we took the tour. However I understand that you can't control the weather.
Absolutely amazing, loved it ❤️
