Even though the history is grim, we felt it was important to visit Port Arthur on our one day in Hobart. Our guide, Malcolm, picked us up at the cruise ship and off we went for a scenic and informational day. We learned a lot.

Port Arthur is a very historical part of Australian history about the early prisoners and young boys who were sent to Australia from the streets of London for committing petty crimes. Tour included a boat tour and guides who walk about the area giving the history of the place. Great day!

Well we couldn't have asked for a better time w/ our driver being so friendly and pointing out special things along our way to Port Arthur. He made sure all understood the importance and history of his city of Hobart which made it even more enjoyable. I really felt that we were not treated as tourist, but friends who came for a visit.

We went on this trip during our cruise on Holland America. Although the trip started out a bit disorganized as there seemed to be a problem locating a driver, it turned out well. Our driver was kind and accommodating. He went out of his way to make everyone happy. We loved seeing Port Arthur and learning about it's history! As an added bonus, we saw a Tasmanian Devil on the way back to Hobart which was a highlight! Would definitely recommend this excursion instead of taking one organized by the cruiseline. A major positive is being able to do it with a small group!
