5 days in Tassie
Monika
, Apr 2020
Everything was perfect. We had a nice group of 24 people and everything went smoothly. The attractions were great. The guide knew a lot about the area. We had a perfect combination of mountains, wildlife and beach experience. The hostels were okay too. Bring warm clothes, it gets quite cold in Tassie. The only thing I didn't enjoy much was The Gordon River Cruise. It was a rainy day and we had to choose either to walk in the rain the whole day or to pay extra for a boat cruise. Maybe it's beautiful on on sunny day, but this wasn't worth to pay any money.

It’s a Backpacker’s Tour!!
Shirley
, Mar 2020
Booked online based on tour specs in website and opted for single room in motel accommodation. Specs states breakfast provided with the 5 days itinerary. Van transporter was on time for pick ups. The group has 24 pax and was max out in a 24 seater van. For the daily transfers from city to city, it’s pretty uncomfortable squeeze. 22 pax stayed in backpackers hostel while I and another lady choose single motels. Day 1&2 accommodation was unacceptable in cabin type rooms in a caravan park place. Imagine the Tour Guide/Driver tells you for breakfast, find a hole opening at a fence about 100m away and go to the backpackers kitchen for cereals and toast DIY style purchased by the Guide. Luckily Day 3&4 were at proper motels with breakfast provided. As for the tours, expect lots of trekking. Mostly are visits to national parks and lakes to behold nature, floral and fauna. Also went for the optional Gordon River Cruise. Nothing spectacular to me but lunch was good. And everyday, one has to remember to pack their own lunch from the daily supermarket stops. Dinners were at own choice at nearby restaurants near the motels or cook your own at backpackers kitchen. Certainly not my type of holiday tours and NOT value for the money paid.

Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to know that our tour was not your type of holiday. Our tours are described as being active and nature/adventure-oriented. We visit some incredible places throughout Tasmania and while walks for varying fitness levels are offered at most locations, we can understand why you could have been disappointed if hiking is not your cup of tea. Yes, our multi-day tours include some breakfasts while all other meals are self-catered. This information is clearly stated on the description of our tours and in the FAQ section of our website. Best wishes!

Had the best time this week with an amazing guide, Jacob and tons of new friends! Wonderful itinerary highlighting stunning views in Tasmania! I didn't want it to end! Hostels and food were very nice for the package price and it was well organized

Definitely the Best of Tasmania

Our tour guide, Jess, was amazing. She was a fountain of information on Tassie history as well as the flora and fauna of the island. The tour operator, Under Down Under, was very efficient and customer oriented. With one small exception the tour was on time all the time. We had a short delay in the first hour or so at the start of the tour but the company rectified the situation and made it right by buying everyone dinner the first night. There were two hiking situations and Jess was able to make everyone in our group comfortable in choosing an option suited to their abilities. We were on the 5 day tour and we covered the entire island with the exception of Port Arthur an Bruny Island, which I believe were included in the 7 day version. We would highly recommend this tour.

Many thanks for reviewing the tour and recommending us! We are happy you had a wonderful time with Jess, she is awesome, and as you mentioned, very passionate about Tassie. In our multi-day tours we will always endevour to give a moderate walking option as well as a more difficult one. We are thrilled to know we lead you to a trail that suited your ability. Hope to see you again soon. Safe travels!

Tasmania bus boat hike

Enjoyed the youthful camaraderie. Ranged from strenuous hiking to mild walks. Boat trip in the roaring 40's (windy latitude), hikes to high points and hostel living was superbly fun.
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
Many thanks for your review! We are thrilled to know you enjoyed the camaraderie as for us delivering life-long memories and friendships is a priority. Wilderness in Tassie is pretty amazing and one of the best ways of experiencing it is by hiking. We are happy to know you had fun walking with us. Do come back and experience the roaring 40's again soon. Safe travels!

Cradle Mountain was the best part
somerain05
, Jan 2020
We paid extra for a Double Room. They put us up at the Mews Motel in Launceston because the motel they usually use only had 3 rooms so we were put at the Mews Motel. Worst hotel we ever stayed at. There was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. I took a photo and can prove it. Phil was just Ok as a guide. He found humor in the fact that we lost a Japanese gal at the park and had to spend 40 mins looking for her. Van was super tight and uncomfortable. If I ever do a tour again I would only do 3 days not 5.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
Thank you for your comments and we’re glad that you enjoyed Cradle Mountain. Please be advised that we have immediately advised the hotel about the mould. We know they will be keen to resolve that as quickly as possible. Regarding the situation with Japanese guest who took an alternative trail in Freycinet National Park, on behalf of our guide we would like to apologise that you interpreted his behaviour as finding humour at the guest not showing up when expected. We wish to assure you that the safety of our guests is our number one priority at all times, and we have clear procedures in place to follow if we have genuine concern for the welfare of our guests. Thanks again, and we wish you all the best for your future travels.

I seldom go for organized tour and this has far exceeded my expectation. Very action packed 5 days and yet not rushed among stops. Enjoyed the bushwalk and hiking and (definitely need proper hiking shoes) and got into the cold water. And Rachel our guide has made this tour a blast to have. She went extra miles for everyone to be engaged and taken care of, and making the tour festive/family like over the Christmas time. Thank you Rachel.

Phil's Excellent Tasmanian Adventure
Scenic48222
, Nov 2019
This van trip around Tasmania was excellent primarily due to the expert and professional nature of our guide Phil with Down Under Tours operator. His knowledge of Tasmanian/Australian flora, fauna, history, geology, economics and sociopolitical topics brought a fantastic perspective to the tour of this beautiful island. Phil was also a skilled, safe and conscientious driver which made the tour even more enjoyable. The mix of folks on the tour, while random, was a great cross section of ages and world origins which was an extra bonus.
