Saw some beautiful buildings, learnt about their history, but missed some of the talk as the guide was talking to the building, not facing the group.

We walked around the harbor and heard about very early settlement in Hobart. The stories were really interesting and gave us an idea of what it might have been like. We were shown older buildings and were able to enter two that were fun for very different reasons. We felt it was good value and a great way to be introduced to early Hobart and her characters.

Hi!. We had the most wonderful 4 days in Hobart and very much enjoyed our Hobart Historic Walking Tour. However, My husband and I were a little surprised that no mention of the original inhabitants of Hobart was made in any context during the 90 minute tour? An acknowledgement/reference during the introduction would have sufficed to alert visitors that the settlers did not arrive to an empty island. This is not political correctness but historical fact.

This 90 minute walking tour, with a group of just 5 of us, was conducted at a sensible pace and gave a good overview of the city's history. The guide was interesting and knowledgeable, also considerate to the needs of the partially sited member of our group. Thoroughly recommended.
