Despite unseasonably hot weather, we had an amazing day touring with Careena in Port Arthur. Her knowledge and commentary helped us get so much more out of this historic site than we ever could have gotten wandering around on our own. In addition, she took us to many beautiful coastline features on our full-day tour and it was such a treat to ride in her room, ultra-clean and comfy vehicle. Like many other guides she really helps you get the most out of your holiday. Highly highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you James, it was a pleasure to share some of Tasmania's history, scenery and natural environment with you - indeed a wonderful day spent with you both. Best wishes for the rest of your travels. ~Coreena~
We had a thoroughly enjoyable and informative day. Coreena is thoroughly professional, well travelled herself and very comfortably empathises with her guests. We had a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kerry, it was my pleasure to spend the day with you and your family, sharing Tasmania's history and heritage throughout. It was wonderful to listen to your insights along the way too. Thank you for choosing me as your guide in Tasmania and I maybe one day our paths will cross again. Stay well & healthy, and all the best for your future travels. Coreena :-)

Coreena could not have been a better guide! She was flexible, courteous and very enthusiastic! Fun to be with! Very knowledgeable. We would rate her 10+
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aww thank you Jamie for your wonderful comments. I truly had a wonderful time with you both too. It was an absolute pleasure to personalise a combination of experiences over the two days you had in Tasmania. I'm thrilled that it was all that you hoped for and more. Thanks again and best wishes, Coreena :-) PS. I might just have to go back our roadside blackberry stop! Yum!!

If there was a 10 to fill in we would! What can you say when you have a day from 8- 6 with a guide like Coreena! She delivered everything we hoped for and more! From Port Arthur penal colony to history of Tasmania to stopping at special sites along the way home to see some beautiful natural ateas. Her expertise was amazing. Her ancestors date back to the beginning which have us extra insight. Suggesting we stop for a glass of wine and try the oysters! Coreena thank you ! Larry and Ellen
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Larry & Ellen, it truly was wonderful to spend the day with you both. It was certainly a great day exploring the historic and natural sights, ending with a taste of Tassie's oysters and wine. I'm absolutely thrilled that you enjoyed everything so much. Safe travels for the rest of your trip. Coreena :-)

Coreena's deep knowledge of geography, history, and economic issues was amazing. Her awareness of viewpoints of natural wonders, the history of Port Arthur (the formal penal colony) and a great lavender cafe for lunch, as well as the many birds and fauna unique to Tasmania was impressive. Coreena's great sense of humor, willingness to answer questions, and her adaptability were great. Her guide knowhow bypassed long lines, facilitated a quick sail, avoided many tour buses. She is highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nancy and Walter for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you both. I'm so pleased that you had such a wonderful day. Thank you for your generosity at lunch too. Enjoy the rest of your travels; I'm sure you will love your experience at Uluru. Happy travellin' - Coreena

We enjoyed a fabulous day with Coreena on our recent Hobart-based tour. Traveling via ship we had only 1 day to visit & a wish list of must-see places & experiences. Coreena made certain our day was exciting & we saw everything we desired. She is pleasant, very knowledgeable, good humored & kept us on track. Mike's nose-to-nose with a Tassie devil is priceless! The Tessellated Pavement was a must; DooTown included lunch & geology. Port Arthur was amazing; she's very knowledgeable. Such a memorable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely review Mike & Mary-Jane... it is such a pleasure to have been part of your experience and to have shared with you the long-lasting memories of a wonderful journey enjoyed. It may have been just one day but that’s one of the many great things about a private tour - you get to do more of what most interests you, at your own pace with a local guide to share it with. It was a pleasure to have met you both during your recent cruise... Best wishes, Coreena :-)

Coreena was the perfect guide, managing to cover all the important points of our tour out of Hobart despite our very late arrival. Her flexibility and ready willingness to accommodated the individual needs of our party were deeply appreciated and led to a successful trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you kind Sir! :-) Better late than never! It was certainly a great afternoon/evening out and about with you all; I'm so pleased that you enjoyed see all that you did. Safe travels for the rest of your journey. Cheers, Coreena
Marilyn BarnettUnited States
Coreena is a wonderful guide. She was quite knowledgeable about local Tasmania and Port Arthur history. In addition to an extensive tour at Port Arthur, she showed up some beautiful spots along the Tasmanian coast. I particularly appreciated also her attentiveness to following up before the trip to make sure we were all set to go. I highly recommend her to anyone visiting Tasmania.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely words Marilyn :-) The day was such a wonderful one with you and Judi and I'm so pleased you enjoyed hearing about the stark history of Port Arthur and Tasmania's convict era combined with seeing the stunning scenery of our coast. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with others by leaving this review. Coreena :-)
Larry K.alpharetta, GA, United States
What a Find! Corona is knowledgeable, personable and easy to be with and learn from. Not only does she know all the relevant history of the area/island/country but communicates this in a easy to understand manner. She was a pleasure to be with. But wait there is an extra bonus not contributed by other guides- that is, she is a major photographer . It's hard to say whether I learned more about picture taking or the history ofTasmania.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such an amazing review Larry. I'm thrilled that you had such a wonderful day and that you got so much from the Tasmanian stories and photography guidance I shared with you. I'm sure you have some great memories of the day to look back on and just maybe you'll return for another visit in the future. Cheers, Coreena
