Fabulous day out, guides Jacob and Matt were amazing, so knowledgeable and fun and friendly they made the day.
We got to see so much on this packed day out, Port Arthur, Richmond, Tasman coast.
Fantastic value and really enjoyable day.

We were picked up from our hotel by the driver and guide, Rob, who was very personable and helpful all day. After collecting our fellow tourists, we headed off to Richmond to check out the historic bridge. On the way we dropped in at Dodges Ferry to see the view, then continued on to the Tasman Peninsula. We stopped at the Dog Line and at a viewpoint, before visiting Tasman Arch and Devils Kitchen. At Port Arthur we were given free rein, with tickets for the harbour cruise included. Luckily the weather held out for most of the day, with only occasional drizzle. Rob took us for an optional trip to Remarkable Cave, where the weather was less kind, but we enjoyed the visit nonetheless. All up, a very enjoyable drive with a good range of stops.

Very good experience for someone who hasn't been there before and including the couple of stop offs on the way to Port Arthur which give you a good feel for the history of that part of Tasmania. I would recommend this way of seeing Port Arthur for the first time.

Beautiful scenery on the trip down. As an older person I very much appreciated the 'people mover' buggies. All locations provided excellent guides and great insights to the period. The 30 minute harbour cruise was a great addition to the day.

Good tour with good history. We enjoyed the other places we visited along the way too. Had no idea before this that Tasmania had been part of the British penal system.
