What people are saying about Port Arthur

An exceptional day tour with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, we loved every second! We had a great bus driver, thanks Phil for taking such good care of us. The absolute highlight was the eco cruise with Dammo & Andrew, it was breathtakingly beautiful & it was so obvious how much our guides loved their jobs & the Tasman Peninsula. We enjoyed Port Arthur, but it was a snapshot of the historic site & we rushed around after eating lunch to cram as much of it in as possible. Thanks to everyone involved for a wonderful day!!

This was my third tour with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, and all were excellent. I went on Bruny Island trip last year, and this year Iron Pot Lighthouse and Tasman Peninsula. I would highly recommend these tours.

The guides were very friendly and easygoing. Beautiful tour, relaxing and enjoyable. I loved the boat part at the Tasman Peninsula. The guides were very passionate and accommodating. 5 stars from me!
