Our guide was very informative giving us detailed history of Hobart's early settlement. She showed us various maps,pictures etc. This tour is highly recommended
In depth understands of Tasmania harbour city
, Feb 2022
The tour guide has a very in depth historical knowledge of Hobart city and harbour. From her professional presentations, we knew the 3 monuments in the city centre are not really "great persons", the central park was a cemetery, the history and stories of convicts and the big buildings. A great Tasmania history experience.
Fantastic tour - well worth doing
, Feb 2022
Our tour guide was really knowledgeable of the history of Hobart and showed us things that we had walked past without thinking of the significance. Our guide was friendly and professional and I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Hobart - even if you have been there before
Hobart 2 hour tour

Lisa’s enthusiasm for history! She clearly enjoys history, convict past and sharing her knowledge about Hobart!
A look at Hobart's first English settlement
, Jan 2022
I was part of a small group tour, probably due to recent rainy weather. Lisa was there when I arrived, immediately engaging and friendly. As we explored each site, Lisa's presentation was informative and easily understood. She was interested in each person's views; and answered all questions in a way that we felt part of a group discussion. As it was my first time to hear about Hobart's early history, the tour gave me a context to understand what I'm seeing in the present.
Wonderful and informative

A decent introduction to Hobart
, May 2021
Lisa was an excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable of the history of the area. The tour was a bit long for one area and could have been covered in an hour. I would like to have seen other areas of Hobart e.g. Battery Point included in the tour.
icon Response from Host , May 2021
Hi Keith, Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the tour with Lisa. As there are such a large amount of stories through Battery Point as well, we do have this as a seperate tour to ensure that we can cover as much as we can for visitors. We hope that next time you are in Hobart we can take you on a tour of Battery Point as well. Thank you, The team at Hobart Walking Tours
Informative tour about Hobart and Tas history.

Very informative tour about Hobart history connecting it to the many historic buildings. A very accessible walk. The tour guide was prepared to run the tour for one person when 4 people pulled out due to the weather.
