Our guide, Mark, was excellent! He was personable and very knowledgeable. Our tour was a small group, only 6 people, so we got very personal attention. Our Bonorong Wildlife Reserve experience was amazing. We got to walk among the kangaroos and hand feed them. We would highly recommend this tour.

Excellent. Our guide is the right person for this job. He was very nice, friendly and he had a lot of patience for everyone. He took us to many places and eventhough our tour was set for 5h30 it took longer because he wanted to be sure we had enough time to enjoy each place we visited. Unforgettable tour for sure! Thank you!

Visited Tasmania last year and one of the attractions that I wanted to see was Mount Wellington. Public transportation wasn't an option since the buses won't take you to the top. They will drop you off at a lower level and you need to trek up.the mountain. My only options were to rent a car or book a tour. I decided on the latter since it was easier and saved me the trouble of driving in Australia.

I looked through tours available on Viator and decided to book a package consisted of a tour of Mount Wellington and admission to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Once the tour was confirmed, I received instructions from the operator regarding pickup for the tour.

On my tour, it was just me and an Indonesian family so I learned plenty of tidbits about Tasmania. My tour guide was very knowledgeable about world affairs ex. US election which was impressive and even talked about his travels to Seattle.

Mount Wellington was definitely worth the visit. My guide made stops at the summit as well as down the mountain, so I could get views of the area at different altitudes. After the visit to Mount Wellington, we headed over to Bonorong. The tour guide checked us in to the sanctuary and then picked us up to drive back to Hobart to conclude the tour.

I would recommend this itinerary if you are interested. Though make sure to bring a jacket or windbreaker as it is cold on Mount Wellington, particularly during the winter. Also I would pack a lunch and bring some water since the tour is all day. My tour guide did make a pit stop so I could pick up a couple meat pies at a bakery for lunch on our way to Bonorong.

For the price, I was very satisfied with the tour. Primarily attribute this to my tour guide who was very knowledgeable about the area. This is something that you wouldn't get if you decide to do the journey on your own.

The guide was unprofessional too many personal opinions. The sanctuary was outstanding; we loved it. It was going to be another 2 hours at Mt Wellington and we had already been away 4 hours so we asked to be dropped off at the ship. Time management was not his strong suit.

Despite the cloudy cool and windy day our tour guide was quite warm! The views of Mt Wellington were well worth the effort. The sanctuary was nice, The kiwi was interesting! Our guide was very knowledgeable and involved all 6 of us on his van. His tour was comprehensive and I would recommend this to any traveler to Hobart.
