Ruth is a treasure. A multi-generational Tasmanian, she has a vast knowledge of Hobart and Port Arthur, as well as the historical realities that make Australia's smallest state such a fascinating -- and often poignant -- place to visit. Incredibly gracious, her narrative was nothing less that "the truth well told": the 19th century convict past, the aboriginal tragedies, the contemporary concerns for the environment and much, much more. We're long-time and loyal TbL-ers, and Ruth is the best guide ever.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: David, I am blushing!! There is nothing I can really say in response to your generosity, except to add that it is 5-star clients who make a 5-star guide, and you and Barbara were exemplary clients! I wish you many more years of enjoyable travels to far-flung corners of the world...
