Beautiful Day on Bruny

Awesome experience seeing the sights and tasting the delights of beautiful Bruny. Lighthouse experience is amazing. Only downside was that we were last to be picked up so my partner and I had to sit separately for the entire day and couldn't share the scenery and experience while we were driving, which was a large part of the day.

Hi Kellie-Ann, Thank you for your great review. It's a shame some of the others were not able to swap seats? Thank you, Craig Parsey and Team Bruny Island Safaris

Very good. Weather sucked

The tour was great but the weather was at times squally. The morning tea was lovely and the oysters so fresh. The cheeses were delicious. They had GF crackers to go with the MT - no GF bread for us. The lunch was good and they were able to feed me ( I am gluten intolerant so need GF food) Did not see the white wallaby but you can’t make them appear on command. Did see normal wallabies and some beautiful red chested finches at the lighthouse. Great scenery.

Thank you Sabrine. Sorry we couldn't sort the weather out for you :) Unfortunately as far as I'm aware the Cheese Company bakery does not do GF but we will check for the future. Kind Regards Craig Parsey and Team Bruny Island Safaris

Wonderful day on Bruny Island

What a fantastic experience and good value for money. Picked up from our accommodation and given a full commentary on the bus by the lovely Gemma, we enjoyed a delicious morning tea of oysters, cheese and freshly baked bread then a choice of meals at the Bruny Hotel. Definitely try the seafood chowder! The trip to the lighthouse was amazing. We were unlucky not to see the white wallaby on the Island, but we thoroughly enjoyed our day.

Sensational Nigel the Tour Guide

Sensational Nigel the Tour Guide My favourite part related to the quality of the tour guide. I likened him a little to Mick Molloy. We had an old lady with us from Malaysia that could not speak any English and Nigel went out of his way to ensure that she enjoyed the experience. She did however understand the word 'chocolate' His knowledge of the history and his love for the wildlife certainly shone through. We loved the fresh food (oysters, cheese and bread) and the lunch at the hotel was sensational. All in all, it was a sensational experience that has given us a great reason to return. Besides the hotel is the only place you can get the 'apple and cherry' cider
