The guides were friendly and helpful and they made sure that the passengers were well taken care of! The landscape on the way up to Mount Wellington was beautiful and if you have some time to spare, it's good to do some bush walking. Do be prepared that you might not get a view of Hobart at the peak as it might be cloudy. And be prepared for the cold and strong winds!
