Well organised tour with an engaging and informative operator with FABULOUS views from the Pinnacle. You’ll be colder than a brass monkey’s proverbial up that high 1270m above sea level, but it is SO worth it. Great fun to clamber up to the very top and the ancient rock formations from dolorite are like prehistoric landscape- you can clamber over them as you like. Next time we will be more intrepid and walk part way down and get picked up by a later bus; the operators were great at communicating with each other to make sure you can jump on and off. In winter, probably best to do this in the mid- morning then hit up a warm lunch.

Very nice and comfortable bus trip to Mt Wellington. The bus arrived on time, driver gave us a history & info abt suburbs on the mountain. There was very low visibility on the day we travelled due to fog. It was a good decision to go by bus rather than drive on our own. However we could not see the city view. but overall a nice and safe experience taking the bus

A charming and very entertaining bus ride from Hobart CBD to the visitor centre at the top of Mt Wellington, with commentary from our tour guide who was hilarious, informative and a great driver (which is important when you’re winding up and down that mountain). The bus was clean and comfortable and we had a ripper time. Highly recommend this bus tour.
