Not really a gourmet foodie tour
Rosemary_M, Jun 2022
The oysters and the visit to the cheese company. There were too many unnecessary walks. Stopping at the oyster bar rather than just driving through and being able to have wine at the cheese co and not just beer would have been good
Good but could go further
Simone_M, Jun 2022
Showed us the best of Bruny with good commentary. Lunch was average. Distinct lack of acknowledgment of history, stories and voices of Indigenous peoples of Bruny. This really needs to be woven into the tour in a meaningful way as it is part of the story of Bruny.
Good tour, busy day at a smooth pace
Jasmin_D, Jun 2022
Paul ( driver) was great and super friendly, was a good day of just being taken to A and B, fantastic lunch included and comfortable BUS the ice cream at the honey shop was also devine! We had a great day!
