    A true 'taste of Tasmania': a well chosen selection of 'must see' locations without the pace feeling hurried. Our excellent guide, Evan, and the happy, international, intergenerational group made for a memorable time.

    A wonderful introduction to Tasmania with just the right combination of driving and walking. Highlights were cradle mountain, wineglass bay and Maria island but all delightful. Lovely group and thanks to our guide Ringer.

    Great not to have to worry about transport or logistics over such a short time period.Saw loads in the time available, so it was inevitable that it felt a bit rushed on occasions.

    • Can your team help me with visa arrangements?

      Unfortunately we are unable to give visa advice due to the vast number of nationalities which our customers represent. Some nationalities can travel freely over borders, where others require advance permission to enter. There are also changes in requirements from time to time. We recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.

    • We want to travel Melbourne and Tasmania. Any thoughts?

      To cover both Melbourne and Tasmania, you would need to take 2 separate trips. You would need to also arrange your own flights between Melbourne and Tasmania.
