    Hobart tram tour
    George_O
    , Mar 2020
    The tour was supposed to be on a tram converted to a bus but a converted van arrived, the driver gave no apology when I questioned him. We were not informed prior to the tour which we booked on line. The visibility out of the van was poor the windows were too small. The tour itinerary would have been good if not for the mode of transport.

    No tram seem to be a regular

    , Apr 2019
    Only booked this tour as was going to be on a tram. It seems to be a regular that a bus is substituted for the tram. This put a downer on the whole tour. The only positive was the driver - very nice and knew his history and knowledge of the area.

    Rocky start to a good tour.
    Trail09986249170
    , Feb 2019
    Our tour started out a bit rocky as there were no directions on how to get to the loading zone from the cruise ship terminal. Further there was very little coordination once we found out where we needed to be. We milled about with a couple dozen other equally bewildered travelers and watched several buses load and leave without us. Finally, we were welcomed aboard the bus by our driver Zac who did a fine job narrating Hobart and its history. However, given the late start, each stop felt rushed, especially at the Royal Gardens. So rocky delayed start, good driver, limited time at any one stop equals three stars in our book.

    Really good value,tour guide was great. Suited us perfectly as we were only there for a short time being on a cruise, gives you a bit of time before boarding the ship to do your own thing. Would recommend for anyone who wants a quick rundown and sightseeing of Hobart

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and our guide was most informative. How he managed to drive that bus on those narrow streets was unbelievable. Nigel was a very informative and pleasant man.
