Port Arthur Plus

Great tour guide gave entertaining and interesting commentary on the journey. Frequent stops to take in points of interest en route. Port Arthur is a must see destination to appreciate the physical, organisational and human challenges of establishing Australia’s early European settlement.

An Excellent Day Out

Collected on time from our accomodation, and so began a full and fascinating day out. We saw points of interest we would otherwise have never known about and Mark (our driver and guide) was a wealth of fascinating background information and anecdotes. Not having to do our own driving allowed us to devote our attention to the scenery and history of this part of Tasmania, so was without doubt a real bonus. Our thanks to Mark and I would recommend this tour with no hesitation.

PORT ARTHUR MEGA TOUR

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.

Thank you to Mark who showed us some very special historic sites and made the whole experience personal and unforgettable. Mark also took us to the airport so that we did not miss our flight back to Brisbane. What a nice bloke!
