Mark "I had a fantastic time on the tour. Tasmania is beautiful!! The memories of the people I met and the places I saw will last a lifetime. I selected the 8 day option, with the last 3 based from Hobart and was glad I did. The 5 day overland was fast paced and met or exceeded my expectations. Be mindful that this tour is a sampler of Tasmania where you visit many sites, so don't expect long visit..."

    Lots of options for walks and hikes of various challenge levels. Could opt out if we wanted. Our guides were informative and friendly. I would have liked an option to stay an extra day in Launceston and Bicheno.

    I had a really great time doing the Ultimate 8 tour! We had John as our guide for the 3 days in Hobart and he was super knowledgeable about the all the areas we visited. Pick-ups were a bit late on our Port Arthur day (these things happen) so John kindly... Read more

    The 'out of city' sector of the 8 day tour was excellent. Town/city tour guides left a little to be desired..Not entertaining in the least.. Just glad we had a great guide in James and an exceptional and diverse group of travellers who got along extremely well
