Hobart tram tour
, 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.

Hobart Highlights
, Feb 2020
Excellent introduction to Hobart - Nigel the driver was very informative - there's not much he doesn't know about Hobart...His great personality and sense of humour was very welcome. Nigel went out of his way to ensure that everyone was well catered for. Would highly recommend this tour.

Great if time is limited in Hobart

Good narrated tour of Hobart. Only problem was this half day tour started at 9.45 and ended at 1 pm. Just not enough time to spend in places of interest.

The driver was friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. It was a perfect day for sightseeing. The weather was warm and the sun made every thing look brighter.
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.
