Thank you for your wonderful recommendation... Our guides are full of information about Bruny Island and Tasmania and always happy to share a few secrets with you. Locally employed island guides. Unlike other tours, we include lunch, morning tea, Cape Bruny Lighthouse Tour, Oysters from the farms, local island cheese, fudge, honey and all tastings throughout the day. No hidden costs :) Kind Regards Craig and Team Bruny Island Safaris
Thank you, Holly. Usually, the last two stops are for those that ask but also great tastings offered at the honey and fudge (Our very own exclusive tasting). We do like to support the local community and producers as much as possible. Spending a few dollars with them here and there goes a long way to improving the facilities for better enjoyment by all. We also help to market the island producers through all of our online media and print. We are very mindful not to make this a shopping experience and to offer you a well balanced full Bruny Island experience. Hence we pack lots into the day, including the Cape Bruny Lighthouse Tour (The only company offering this experience). Your pick up location dictates your day tour length. Usually, we leave Hobart by 7:20 am and back by 5:30 pm. If your pick up is out of Hobart your day could be a bit longer depending on if you are staying North or South of Hobart. But don't let that worry you when booking as we will get back to you with the best possible pick up point and you can relax on the day without the worry of driving.
