I was a little bit disappointed the tour is pretty much a shuttle service between Hobart and Richmond.Many other day tours spend time in Richmond which would be adequate.Also I found the bus driver difficult to hear.

Thanks Tim,for a very special afternoon.Your knowledge on the local histoty was amazing,i was hanging on every word.What a lovely little township Richmond turned out to be.Lots of convict stories and buildings that were built by their own hands still remain there.From the local gaol to the haunted bridge.We didnt escape without an encounter from one of the local gaol spirit s either,which i found to be very intreguing.Many thanks for some great memories.

I tried to book online but the online form refused to accept my Australian telephone number, although I tried it in every format I could think of. I then phoned Viator to query this and the operator would not answer my specific question. He insisted on going through a load of ad in questions, so I hung up. I then tried the online form again using my UK telephone number (for which I had turned off roaming). The booking succeeded. The confirmation said it was a 1.15pm start and to confirm further with the actual company doing the tour. When I did this I was told that there was no 1.15pm tour and that it left at 12.30!!!!

This is not a Hobart tour.The description of the tour is completely inaccurate. This is merely a ride to Richmond, where you are dropped off and left to yourself for a couple of hours. No Hobart, no historic information, nothing. If you are looking for an expensive ride to Richmond, then this is your tour. I do not recommend.
