    What an amazing experience. You get a taste of everything with just enough. The walks are gentle so anyone can do them. Lunch was great and very thoughtful. Our tour guide was the best! He was full of information and kept the group together and on schedule. He stopped to show us wildlife and genuinely loves Tasmania and the outdoors. Thanks John for an amazing day!

    John, our guide, picked us up on the time expected from our hotel. He gave a very informative tour not only about Cradle mountain but also the places we were passing through on the way. He told us what to expect upon arrival (i.e. the different weather etc). He tried to check up on everyone even though we were walking different paces. It was a truly enjoyable experience and I highly recommend this tour. Tip: Booked on a Sunday so we didn't have to transfer to shuttle buses.

    Our driver "John" was brilliant, very chatty and knowledgeable. Too cloudy to see the Mountain but the views were fantastic. A must do tour (Wouldn't want to go without "Viator") loved it.

    My Husband and I had an amazing day at cradle Mountain. It was so nice to have tour guide John take us through the history on the way to the mountain also too give us some background, thats psrt of the reason we picked a tour instead of driving ourselves. We also had beautiful sunny day!

    Excellent tour guide and spots to visit, but description on website is misleading
    Charmaine_C
    , May 2022
    I'd like to preface this by saying I had a wonderful time, and John our tour guide was excellent. However, the tour description is not very accurate. We stopped off at Sheffield, or the town of murals, to pick up our lunch (a simple roll). We had about 30-40 minutes to get breakfast and walk around. Then we went to the visitor centre at Cradle Mountain to look at souvenirs. After that, we visited Dove Lake (the trail itself it 2-3 hours and there was no time for that). We got our best views of Cradle MountIn from the lake, and the lake itself is beautiful. We also went to visit Waldheim and went on a short rainforest walk. On the way back, we visited Ashgrove cheeses. Pros: - tour guide was excellent. Knew a lot of history about the towns and the mountain and trails - brought us to several little stops that we would otherwise have never known to stop at (e.g. to see a waterfall) Cons: - time was limited at each of the places, so we could not leisurely walk around and felt rushed - lunch was a simple roll and teabags and instant coffee with other little snacks (but we ate at a little cabin near Waldheim) I would recommend you do this tour if: - not interested in doing a proper walk/hike - want someone to tell you all about the history and nature of cradle mountain - want to visit many spots you otherwise would not have thought to visit - don't expect a fancy lunch

    Tour involved more driving and only 2.5hours at Cradle Mountain. There was no time to do the Dove Lake Circuit due to time constraints. Could have been better organised.
