Phil the bus driver was excellent, with a dry sense of humour and just the right number of bad jokes for the day. He is extremely knowledgeable about many points of interest along the way, including stops at amazing lookouts. Plenty of bottled water available free on the bus. One day in Port Arthur isn't quite enough ONLY if you... More

My wife and i used Gray Line bus to travel from Hobart to Port Arthur on a day trip. The seats on the bus are very comfortable and the driver gave a commentary during the trip that was both informative and entertaining.

We took this trip from Launceston and we had a wonderful time visiting, Sheffield, Dover Lake and Cradle Mountain surrounds as well as cheese tasting at Ashgrove. This trip is highly recommended.

It's fun to experience your home state through the eyes of a tourist. I did this last week by booking a day tour to Port Arthur and it was a very enjoyable experience. Our bus driver/guide Sue was very upbeat and full of interesting information. It is a totally different experience when you do not have to drive (you miss... More

We took two tours with this company. The half day one to bonorong and Richmond was a waste of money as we only had an hour in each place, which was way too short, particularly for bonorong. The driver/guide was very good. We had a much better experience on our full day tour to port Arthur. We decided to take... More

I did the half-day tour and found that it was a great tour to do when you have limited time. I was visiting Hobart during a cruise ship stop and wanted something that would give me a good overview of the city.

We've taken a half day tour to Bonorong and Richmond. The tour was great especially thanks to Greg, the bus driver, who told us so many interesting things about Tasmania in such a funny but extremely exhaustive way that the almost two hours on the bus flew away so fast. Bonorong is great to get in touch (literally) with the... More

We booked this tour while we were Hobart during a cruise ship port stop. The bus was very nice and clean, and very comfortable. The bus driver provided nice commentary on history and current events.

I did the "Bonorong Wildlife Park and Richmond Afternoon Tour from Hobart" tour, which is a half-day tour, and I greatly enjoyed it. My favorite part was going to Bonorong, which I will review separately (if it's possible to review it on here). Those of us that opted to go to Bonorong had about 1 1/4 hours there, including a...
