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

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 :-)

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
