A Recent Review of this tour

If anyone is needing a guide while in Hobart, Tasmania, contact Rosie, she is a amazing guide! She took time to explain Hobart and its surroundings. 8 seniors doing what we wanted and at our pace, not rushed or shopped to death, like tours on the cruise ship arranges. Can't say enough about how wonderful Rosie and her bus Izzy made our two days in Tasmania. Best tour days ever, and we all have been on many tours over the past years!
