A look at Hobart's first English settlement
, Jan 2022
I was part of a small group tour, probably due to recent rainy weather. Lisa was there when I arrived, immediately engaging and friendly. As we explored each site, Lisa's presentation was informative and easily understood. She was interested in each person's views; and answered all questions in a way that we felt part of a group discussion. As it was my first time to hear about Hobart's early history, the tour gave me a context to understand what I'm seeing in the present.
Wonderful and informative

An amazing way to learn about Hobart history, would 100% recommend for visitors. Lisa was a fantastic guide who knew her history with lots of quirky stories.
A decent introduction to Hobart
, May 2021
Lisa was an excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable of the history of the area. The tour was a bit long for one area and could have been covered in an hour. I would like to have seen other areas of Hobart e.g. Battery Point included in the tour.

Hi Keith, Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the tour with Lisa. As there are such a large amount of stories through Battery Point as well, we do have this as a seperate tour to ensure that we can cover as much as we can for visitors. We hope that next time you are in Hobart we can take you on a tour of Battery Point as well. Thank you, The team at Hobart Walking Tours
Informative tour about Hobart and Tas history.

Very informative tour about Hobart history connecting it to the many historic buildings. A very accessible walk. The tour guide was prepared to run the tour for one person when 4 people pulled out due to the weather.

Deb, our guide, was fantastic with dates, and able to go in and out if sequence to keep the information relevant to the group's interest.
Heavy on history, low on walking
, Apr 2021
The guide was lovely and very knowledgeable. However if you are expecting a good walk, this is not the tour for you. In the first hour we covered about 300m. The first half an hour was spent giving us a very interesting lesson in history but we didn’t move from the start point. I would have liked to move around more and see more.

Hi Natalie, Thank you for leaving a review for us and we are glad you enjoyed the knowledge and information shared. We try to ensure that our walks are accessible for everyone, including those who may not be able to cover a lot of ground, but I completely understand your want in having a more physical walk. We hope next time you come back to Hobart, you get in touch and we can customise a walk to cover more ground. Thank you, The team at Hobart Walking Tours
A fantastic history tour.

We would definitely recommend this tour. There wasn't that much walking and most of the time is spent hearing lots of interesting stories about Hobart. Our guide Lisa was amazing. Thanks for a great morning :)
