My parents and I attended the Cradle Mountain tour from Launceston on the 23rd February
Firstly the tour was incredible! The views were stunning, the tour guide was a great guy - very friendly, polite, knowledgeable and passionate about the Cradle Valley
The items I wanted to raise however is regarding the itinerary:
The tour description says approx. 12-hrs
Our tour was approx. 9-hrs
The stop in Sheffield was extremely short - 15-mins - this left no time to view the murals, have breakfast, and see the things that we actually visited Sheffield for!
I'd suggest 30-45-mins here
We were fortunate to have great weather which allowed Dove Lake to be fully accessible...however the guide advised we only had approx. 1hr 15-mins at this location. So half of us rushed around the lake walk and the other half walked only a quarter of the way around - as they were concerned that they would not be able to keep the pace as the guide said it was essential we were back by 12:30pm
The people in the group were more than able to walk around the entire lake however and extra 1-hr would have been sufficient to enjoy the entire lake walk and a reasonable pace........instead of rushing people to be back by 12:30pm
The extra 1-hr at Dove Lake and the Extra 30-mins in Sheffield would have meant the tour length would have been 10.5-hrs - so well within the time allowed for the tour, still returning back at a reasonable hour and actually would have meant that the group felt less rushed and had more time at the actual locations
