What people are saying about Derwent Valley Council, Australia

Amazing tour with the best highlights of Tassie. A definite must-do! Great stops and good add on options offered. Fair price and we did/saw a lot! My tour guide Gareth was wonderful and since he is from Tasmania he was also very knowledgeable about the culture, landscape, animals etc of Tasmania. He was patient and kind hearted and made individuals feel cared about.

It was such an amazing trip and experience - I learned so much from our fantastic tour guide Tim. He went above and beyond and showed us so many thinks and knew Tassy inside out. I really would recommend this trip for people who want to do Tassy but who don’t want to drive it or do it alone.

It's the best trip that I 've ever been. Stunning coast, rainforests, wild animals everything is so amazing. (we even found the wild platypus!!!) Thanks for the professional tour guides to tell us lots of stories about Tasmania. I will definitely travel again in the future.

It was amazing and I can't still return to the real-life from the Tasmanian dream trip!!

This was the best tour I’ve been on. Good pacing and really fun.
