    My wife and I participated in the Port Arthur Mega Tour yesterday. Our driver and guide Mark was delightful. He was full of personality and knowledge keeping everyone on the bus involved in conversations I. Relation to a wide range of topics. He could also sing the Japan National Anthem - Yes we had one young Japanese lady onboard. He pick each of us up from our hotels an return us back to them at the end of the day. He was truly inspiring. I would recommend this tour as your No.1 choice of tours in Tasmania.
