Recommend highly.

Very well put together tour. Despite visiting a number of different places, we were never rushed and I felt that the time management was spot on. Really impressed with our 3 guides. Chris (?) Connor and Stephen who were very approachable and put the group at ease. Each of them provided more than enough information on the various sites we visited, and were knowledgeable without feeling the need to drone on and on. The perfect tour if you want to quickly cover some of the most interesting places on Tasmania without hiring a car..
