Nice tour of local sights in Hobart. It was on a mini bus even though it was advertised as a tour by tram, so a bit disappointing there. We got a phone call on the way there advising the tour needed to preferably start earlier which did cause a bit of stress given we had left with what we thought was plenty of time to arrive for the advertised start time.

This tour was an excellent choice for us. Just to grab a taste of Hobart and surroundings. The highlight of the tour was our Tour Guide Tim who was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He went above and beyond to make this experience great for everyone on the tour. We have no hesitation in recommending this tour to everyone and a special thanks to Tim.

We enjoyed our tour very much. Our guide/driver had to change our route due to a foot-race in Hobart. I really appreciated his patience with a few passengers who kept talking during the tour. He politely asked them several time to be quiet. I would have lost my patients with these rude ladies. He handled them very well.
