We had an excellent day. Our driver Rick went above and beyond to make our day interesting and enjoyable. He took us to places I’m sure other tours don’t cover and, as a resident of Bruny, his local knowledge is outstanding. When you visit Hobart, this tour is a must do. Thanks for a great day Rick. Liz and Peter.

It was a wonderful day spent tasting the fresh produce of Bruny Island - oysters, cheese, sour dough, honey and chocolate - and breathing in the fresh air. The lighthouse tour was a highlight, the views were spectacular.
