Phil our guide was excellent. Unfortunately the weather didn't allow us to go to the top of Mt Wellington but Phil took us to other sites. The views were just as good. Would highly recommend this tour.

A good trip, particularly if you don't have much time. Had enough time at the peak to take photos and enjoy the views. We were also taken to see the Women's prison which although interesting unfortunately is just a shell.

I was flying out at night so this tour was perfect. It allowed me to see the spectacular view of Mount Wellington. It was very windy so do bring a jacket. I've taken a lot of great pictures. It departed and finished on time.

We had a lovely morning driving to and from Hobart up to Mt Wellington. We had the perfect weather, clear blue sky and -1 on top of the mountain. Sue was our driver and guide and a lovely lady and excellent driver, would recommend this trip but you would need to take your chances on the weather, we were so lucky

An excellent half-day tour. We were lucky to have an exceptionally clear day, with relatively little wind and warm temperature. The guide was excellent, the mini-bus comfortable, thoroughly recommend.

The tour was most enjoyable and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and amicable. We were blessed with a picture perfect view from the summit of Mt Wellington. I would recommend this tour to anyone with limited time, it gives you a nice 'snapshot' of Hobart.
