We recommend this tour. Port Arthur is a must see and this tour includes stops at Sorrel, Eaglehawk Neck and the dog line statue. The coastline views of Tasman Arch and Devils rock formations are great photo opportunities. The walk along Waterfall Bay clifftop was enjoyable with lots of photo opportunities. You had a choice to go to Unzoo or spend extra time at Port Arthur. We had seen the devils already so we opted for an extra hour at Port Arthur, which we needed. We stopped in Richmond on the way back and had the famous curry scallop pie and a delicious fruit tart from the bakery. Our tour guide David was excellent.
