Really good value,tour guide was great. Suited us perfectly as we were only there for a short time being on a cruise, gives you a bit of time before boarding the ship to do your own thing. Would recommend for anyone who wants a quick rundown and sightseeing of Hobart

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and our guide was most informative. How he managed to drive that bus on those narrow streets was unbelievable. Nigel was a very informative and pleasant man.

The weather in Hobart was torrential rain. Tried to call this office and was put on hold.....No one ever responded to the call and we needed instructions to get to the meeting place......bottom line....No local contacts.....no assistance....no use of this services......very disappointed

We were taken to some unexpected places like historic women's prison. Stopped at botanical garden but due to weddings parts were blocked off. However we also saw some beautiful sights and guide had a good sense of humor.

Three of us took this tour and agreed that the experience could have been better. The commentary seemed hesitant at times, and the tour guide was not always conscious of the fact that some of the participants may not be familiar with Australian expressions. The last stop on the tour was a 45 minute visit to the Botanical Gardens. This was not enough time to see the gardens so it felt more like a filler rather than an informative stop.

The tour itself was very informative and the driver was very friendly and answered all questions. Only issue was we booked specifically to go out on an old tram and instead we were on a regular coach. The driver advised that we saw additional areas as we were on the more manoeuvrable bus but it was still a disappointment. The stops themselves were good and with enough time to look around each.

Trip was ok. It would have been nice to reverse the tour the day we were there as it was raining heavily the later part of the tour and we weren't able to see the botanical gardens or the view from the high point overlooking Hobart.

Boring tour and seating on the tram was the most uncomfortable ride and the roof leaked.

Our guide Greg was a wealth of information. We saw a lot more than if we had just driven around ourselves. Thoroughly enjoyable way to get an intro to Hobart
