My boyfriend and I were only in Hobart for two days and this tour was a fantastic way to get a sense of the area and see the highlights. We didn't want to rent a car for such a short time but we still wanted to get to see Mount Wellington and Bonorong also, it's best to have a local drive you up Mount Wellington as the roads can be tricky. The company's owner, Gareth, was our tour guide for the day and he was great he was super nice and knowledgeable! Highly recommend this tour and Tours Around Tasmania as a company as well. And congrats to Gareth and TAT for their award from Viator!

We loved this tour ! The view from Mt wellington was awesome and Richmond was charming. it was great seeing Tasmanian Devils and a wombat up close and patting the sleeping koala. The best part was seeing the emus and feeding the kangaroos out of our hands.

Loved this trip, it was a wonderful day and would certainly do it again. The views from Mt. Wellington on a clear day were spectacular and I can't say enough of the experience at the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. What a fantastic park, the Kangaroos are not fenced in so you walk right up to them, touch and feed from your hand. In addition, other animals native to Australia are there and in close proximity to view. We loved the place and fortunately our guide managed our schedule to give us a full two hours there.

Small group tour from Hobart was absolutely wonderful and a must see! Our driver and guide, David was a wealth of knowledge and answered our questions without hesitation. We saw the wonderful views from Mt Wellington just as the sea mist started to fill the sky's. Just to warn you, although the temperature in the city of Hobart was about 21 degrees C, the temperature on top of the mountain was 8 degrees C and that was cold. We have to say the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary was the highlight of the tour and cannot be missed! The work they are doing here is a must for the animals and it's the people who visit here that allow these animals to be looked after in the manner they deserve. We saw and petted a Wambat, a Koala and watched the feeding of the Tasmanian Devils and fed the Kangaroos. What an experience! Richmond Historic Village is small and the time allotted not really long enough to do much exploring on your own. All in All.......do it.

Our small group consisted of 5 people. The views over Hobart from the top of Mt. Wellington were stunning. I love wildlife, so the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary was my favorite part of the tour. We got to pet a wombat, hug a koala and hand feed kangaroos. The Tasmanian Devil feeding was a strictly hands off affair. It consumed everything including the bone. We had only an our to see the historic village of Richmond and that included getting a bite for lunch. That's doable if you just get a quick bite to go at the bakery. This compact little village features the oldest Catholic Church in Australia, the oldest stone span bridge in Australia and the oldest intact jail in Australia. We liked the small sized group because we were able to visit highlights of the local area in half the time required by larger group tours.

We did not go Mt. Wellington.due to bad weather.

The tour was very disorganized. We were told to meet at a specific time and left quite late. The historic village was not worth seeing. We were dropped off and told to walk around.

This operator was dishonest. He sent us two different sets of directions on where to meet. We stayed where he directed people from the cruise ship to wait. Then he left without us. He lied telling us he waited for us. But he did not call me or try to contact me. I think he had overbooked. I told him to please come back and get us. He referred us to another company but they did not have enough customers. Then he came back and got us. A real sour taste. Never got to Mt Wellington. One star is charity.

Tour was excellent. We had a lot of low hanging clouds so could not get the view from Mt. Wellington so Garreth, the owner and operator of the enterprise, took us to alternate sites to see as much of Hobart as possible. Not enough superlatives can be said about Bonorong. The high light of this tour!

This was an OK tour. The sights were wonderful. Unfortunately, our guide was not a good near raider most of the time he did not have his microphone working. We had to keep asking questions as he gave us no information about the areas that we visited. The town Robinson was absolutely beautiful and quaint! We love the drive up to Mount Wellington Despite the cloud Carberry we did get some good photos.

It was beautiful experience for us. Due to poor weather the road to Mt Wellington was closed but our tour guide ensured that we didn't miss out and took us up Mt Nelson!! Whist on the mountain we had a snow storm :)

Mount Wellington we found very good but had no faith in driver, driving down mountain heavy snow never put on wipers, drove very close to edge even though hardly any other traffic my wife was terrified,e and was diving most of time with one hand as he was complaining of having bad cramp

Awesome tour! The owner of the company, Gareth, was our driver and we had him all to ourselves so this was a very special, personalised tour. We visited Battery Park, Mount Wellington, Richmond, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Gareth was kind enough to also take us to a cheese and wine tasting, so the tour end up being almost 1,5hrs longer than planned. Highly recommendable tour!
