    Great day trip from Hobart
    Kieren_S, Jun 2022
    This is a great tour. Zach was willing to make a few extra stops based on the interest of the people on board. He's also a wealth of knowledge and made the trip very informative but also entertaining. I would recommend the extra to head to the Isle of the Dead, fascinating place.

    Hi Kieren, Thank you for a fantastic review. Zach will also be delighted to read your comments. We agree, Port Arthur Historic Site (inc the Isle of the Dead) is a fascinating place and we are so pleased you enjoyed you day spent with us, and Zach in particular!
    Excellent experience, great day!

    Port Arthur is very interesting and the time available is enough for an almost complete tour. While getting to/from there, the bus memes several short stops at beautiful lookouts. The guide/driver is incredibly knowledgeable and makes the bus ride very pleasant
    An interesting must do!!!

    From pick up with our tour guide/driver Colin to the drop off, it was a fantastic day. Colin was extremely knowledgable on all the areas we travelled through which was a highlight as was unexpected. Port Arthur is a treasure that has been preserved as best possible. Isle of the dead tour was informative thanks to Caitlin’s knowledge. A must do when in tassie!!
    Very good tour but check pick up point

    Our tour guide and driver was Mark. Absolutely lovely man and very adaptive and informative. There were changes to the schedule due to it being an incredibility busy day for Port Arthur (Easter long weekend) but he did a great job accommodating everything. I did the additional Isle of the Dead tour which I strongly recommend. Fascinating location to visit and explore. I wish we had spent more time in beautiful Richmond - it looked just gorgeous. Please be careful when booking a hotel pick up for this tour - I did and was told to wait outside the Movenpick, Elizabeth Street. The time and location was on my booking form. After waiting 30 minutes I called and was told they don't pick up from there and to head quickly to the Mona Ferry wharf. I got there in time but it wasn't a great start to the day. I think Greys Line do pick up from 3 or 4 locations but NOTHING like the number on the Viator drop down list on the booking page. The tour itself is highly recommended though - Port Arthur has astonishing history.

    The tour was quite interesting as were the stopping points. A bit hard to hear the operator at the rear of the bus, with the motor noise. Lovely part of the world. Hadn’t even heard of the Tasman Arch, but glad we saw it.
