What people are saying about Hobart

When driver Neil picked me up on Saturday, I knew it was going to be a great day. I'd had him 3 times during my visit here to Tasmania. His customer service is A1 and I thoroughly enjoyed Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Thank you once again for making my holiday so special. Kind regards Renee Martin

It was great. I would like the tour to be a little longer, as I did not have much time to feed the kangaroos. And also I felt it was a bit rushed in Richmond. But overall it was great, and the driver/guide is an amazing friendly person. Totally recommend it!
