    Really enjoyed first 5 days of 8 day group tour. Cradle mountain and Gordon River cruise were exceptional. Did not enjoy last 3 days of day trips based from Hobart as much.

    The ultimate 8 was absolutely amazing, and up there as one of the best tours I've ever done anywhere in the world (and I have been on around 15group tours). The tour was very organized and fast paced, be prepared for early starts every day in order to make the most of the jam-packed itinerary. You truly see the best of Tasi, the incredible scenery and variety of nature is unbelievable. James is the best tour guide I've had, he was extremely knowledgeable, flexible and I felt very safe with his great driving skills. The majority of passengers on my tour did the 5day portion, but value wise it is worth upgrading to the 8 days to have Bruny Island, Port Arthur,Mona and Mount Wellington all taken care of too. Highly recommend,could not fault this company,thank you for an amazing trip I will never forget!

    The Ultimate 8 Tassie tour was really great because we had a fantastic guide in Justin. He went well out of his way to make our experience exceptional and has a real love for nature and passes on his enthusiasm. The motels were really good on the motel upgrade option. The tour bus wasn't full and we had ample space but may have been cramped if fully loaded. The seats by the wheels have restricted leg room so awkward for anyone tall or with back issues. The tour was well organised and really packs alot in so early starts each day. Good value for money. The first 5 days are a set tour then the last 3 days are day trips out of Hobart so new people join the group. Justin was our guide for the bulk of the tour(first 5 days) thankfully as he was superb. We had Adelene for day 6 who was also very good. Then we had another guide for days 7 and 8 and here comes the only real criticism of the trip. This guide would have ruined the trip for me if he had been the guide for most of the tour and would not give a good impression of the company to those just doing the day trips at the end of the tour. This guide had a massive chip on his shoulder and I suspect self esteem issues! Among other things he regularly criticised other guides saying things like 'aren't you pleased you have got me as your guide because the others don't know what they are talking about'. He openly contradicted the poor girl giving the honey demonstration on the Bruny Island trip which was cringeworthy. He constantly referred to this or that good friend of his that was famous in some way which was a bore after several hours! He was rude to some walkers in an attempt at being funny. He wasn't as well organised as the other 2 guides confusing pick up points, timings and also forgot to order the cheese whilst on the Bruny island trip. He was also unhelpful to one of the girls on the MONA & the mountain day trip- she had a suitcase and he just left her stranded with it when she had to board the ferry and visit the art gallery even though he had cut the morning mountain section of the day short due to poor weather conditions. At least he could have dropped her off at the hostel which would have taken him a few minutes! The walking mentioned in the MONA & the mountain and Bruny island day trip itineraries was minimal especially compared to what we had experienced on previous days with the other 2 guides. He was also an erractic driver constantly turning round to look at us. The tour was great but would not have been if we had the guide used on the last 2 days of the tour for the whole tour. Check which guides are going to be used!

    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
