    The 6 day Overland Track trip was my very first full pack trek and I was quite nervous before departure. The guides were absolutely fantastic and supported, encouraged and assisted our group every step of the way. Over 6 days we walked through the heart of Tasmania's most amazing untouched alpine wilderness - experiencing the highs (grazing wombats, spectacular views, walking in a silent still forest) and lows (icy wet socks in the morning) of hiking. In the end I wouldn't have changed any part of the trip - even the rain - as it was my biggest sense of achievement yet and I can't wait for the next adventures to come! Thanks to the team at Tasmanian Expeditions - I will definitely be back for more!!

    I went on the guided 6 day Overland Track trip with Tasmanian Expeditions and loved every minute! We went in May, so the weather was a bit rainy - but the constant encouragement and positivity of our guides made the whole trip so enjoyable - even when it was raining! Food servings were great - large portions and delicious meals, different every night. We had to borrow some gear from Tasmanian Expeditions, and it was all fantastic quality and totally appropriate for the trip. All in all - loved my experience and would definitely recommend going with Tasmanian Expeditions again - they were experienced, knowledgeable, and we felt completely safe and at ease in their capable hands. Big thanks to our guides George and Pip for making this experience unforgettable.

    Amazing trek. Parts were tough, but worth it to get off the beaten track and see the sensational, breathtaking scenery. I was lucky to see a few wombats, a spotted quoll, a pink robin, and someone in the group also saw an echidna! The tour was really well run, lots of information sharing on geology, flora and fauna, the local aboriginal history and the white settler history of the area. Would love to do it again in winter.

    I hiked the overland track on Tasmania with TE. Our two guides were experienced, knowledgeable, patient and supremely friendly. The tour was also very well prepared, and I enjoyed it immensely.

    I have just completed the 6 day trek, a holiday of a lifetime. I feel like it truly changed my outlook of life. I have a new sense of respect for our environment and high level of appreciation of the flora and fauna. I can truly see why it is heritage listed and why people say it is so beautiful. I have made wonderful and hilarious friends that I hope to keep for a lifetime. Our guides Nick and Darren were phenomenal, from their knowledge of the history about Tasmania to their cooking and company - I honestly couldn't fault one thing. They were extremely patient with the first time whingy back at the pack types (aka me). Thank you SO much, I hope to do the Walls of Jerusalem at some stage this year with a few of the people that were of this trip and we have collaborated and will request the same guides and see how many "man points" they can earn.

    This was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a beautiful, unique place with amazing plants and animals unlike anything I have seen in the USA. The group was international and everyone had a good sense of humor and a good attitude in spite of some challenging weather, and the physical challenge of the hike. The guides were cheery and good cooks, and knowledgeable about the natural and human history of Tasmania. I had a great time!

    Very knowledgeable and quick to respond.The prices were good and consistent so once we found the tour we wanted we didn't have to shop the net to see if the price was the best since this was the best price out there. We will definitely recommend TourRadar and will use them again.
