Guide very knowledgeable. Would swap the order of the tour to finish at the best pub Hope and Anchor Tavern. Was a great place for a drink and dinner.

John was a very good tour guide, he knew a lot about not just the pub history but also about Tasmania's history. It was a great evening.

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2017

Disappointing, guide obviously knew a lot about the area. Was expecting to actually go into the pubs and hear the history over a beer but instead mostly stood outside in the noisy busy street, hogging the paths and people having to navigate around us.
