My husband and I went on a 1- day tour to Burney Island with Robe on 28 January 2018.

What a fantastic trip it was, well organised and executed.

Our driver and guide was Robe, he was fantastic. We are in semi-retirement age and he helped everybody with due care as needed. For example, when climbing the light house, we noticed him giving confidence to some visitors who were scared of heights. He prepared meals for the group in an immaculate and hygienic way.

Any employer should be proud to have somebody like Robe in his work place especially when dealing with people from all walks of life

I would highly recommend doing this tour. Our guide Nigel was friendly and full of knowledge. It gave us a good tour of Bruny Island and the tastings were great! It took us too all the locations that may have been missed if we did it ourselves. It was a stress free fun day.

A really exceptional day tour with stunning scenery, food tastings - cheese, chocolate, berries, oysters, cider plus an amazing lunch at the local Hotel. The lighthouse tour was another highlight - the climb to the lighthouse, the internal stairs and the details of its history - so interesting AND the views! WOW !! Our tour guide/bus driver, Nigel was just so friendly and accommodating and shared his knowledge of the area with lots of interesting facts and information. .We had a wonderful day - great value for money ... highly recommended.
