Brilliant Tour - a must do
Court_M
, Jan 2022
Amazing Tour - the guide, Rick did an exceptional job with what was (at times) a challenging group. The lighthouse tour is fabulous with once-in-a-lifetime views; it’s all pre-booked and ready to go (eg no lining up). Everything else is exceptional - my favourite part was the cheese and oysters for morning tea. A few notes - it’s more suited to teens and up (not little kids) and make sure you rug up as it’s cold and windy on the walk around the lighthouse!!

Great tour, friendly & knowledgeable driver. Well planned out. Lunch was great. Plenty of time at each stop. Not worth doing on your own.

A good Tour

A very good tour with our excellent tour guide Rick. He gave us lots of information about the island without talking all the time, giving us time to take in the scenery. Very good with his timings and taking us to all the venues with plenty of time at each one. Liked that he lives on the island. Quality of all the food was excellent. Only drawback was wildlife wasn't a focus of this trip and we didn't see much at all. But this is no reflection on Rick.

A Bucket List Tour

Michael, our local guide brought the history, flora and fauna to life as we travelled in our small group. Morning tea and lunch were derived from local products that were deliciously cooked. Several stops to other locally produced food goods like oysters, cheese, honey and chocolate. To see Bruny Island for its ruggedness and nature is a trip not to be missed.

Too Rushed, Driver Rude
Lesley_N
, Dec 2021
It was a pity the driver’s racial comments, bigotry views and sheer disrespect for his customers, spoilt what should have been a great value for money, wonderful experience. Spectacular views with breathtaking scenery. Yet, Grant rushed at every location. One hour really meant 45 mins, chased us down each time, at one point asking my friend,‘where’s the other one’. Finding me asking, ‘what’s going on’! No time to finish our seafood platter for two lunch, which would have been spectacular. No time to take photos of the pub/hotel edge of the ocean views. A truly fabulous adventure spoilt by being rushed and not allowed to breathe and relax. His comments about the Chinese governments impact, in front of his Australian Chinese guest was embarrassing. At one point he joked about Tasmanian school children being ‘a rare commodity’! Extremely insensitive after the recent Davenport jumping castle tragedy. The whole day, Grant made comments about us being slow, being in my sixties I don’t move or climb up to lighthouses as quick as I used to. Comments were made about my friend’s fear of heights and inability to climb up the lighthouse steps. His snide comments within the group were unnecessary and unacceptable. Time should be allowed for the elderly and compassion shown to paying guests. Checking in requirements, queues for toilets, etc. if compassion can not be shown then the number of venues visited should be reduced to allow for any sort of enjoyment. On the note of precautions, besides from being asked to check in on the bus, nothing else was mentioned. No masks were worn by the other 12 visitors from NSW, Vic, SA on the tour minibus. Our wait in line for the return ferry was longer than the time spent at the honey, cheese and chocolate places. Not acceptable. A beautiful day spoilt.

A wonderful day for all the senses. Our driver Rick was a Bruny local and was so knowledgeable about all aspects of the island. A excellent escape day.
