Please watch out for the weather before booking your trip

Please watch out for the weather before booking your trip. We couldn’t go up al the way to Mt Wellington due to bad weather. Richmond Village was close to zero tourist activity due to the same weather reason. Overall, Tim our tour guide was super helpful, I would definitely come back to Hobart again, perhaps second time lucky.

We enjoyed our tour with your company

We enjoyed our tour with your company, but was a bit disappointed that some of the Hobart component that we were supposed to do had already been done before we were transferred to the tram. The rest was fine, drivers were good and very informative.
