This tour was amazing!

Very interesting day. Learned a great deal about the prison. Driver Jac - short for Jacqueline was caring and very informative. Made several stops to and from Port Arthur which added to the experience. One negative - the van we drove in is past it's prime and should be replaced.

A lovely day that was really well timed. I learnt a lot and saw many beautiful sights. The tour guide was really friendly, positive and accommodating.
