Wow, what a wealth of knowledge Peter is! Full of fascinating information and anecdotes about the history and development of Hobart, focussing on, but not limited to Salamanca, Battery Point and the docks area. His research is very thorough and detailed, including many photos which provide increased insight into the early days. I'm Tasmanian born and bred and visit Hobart, including the Salamanca area frequently and will now see this beautiful part of the world in different light, thanks to Peter.

I enjoyed this walk so much. I actually live in this area, but this walk opened my eyes to so many new things - historical buildings, convict history, how industry developed. Peter has this amazing knowledge that he loves to share. Highly recommended if you are visiting Hobart or, like me, having a staycation.

On this tour we not only learned a whole lot about the history of Hobart, but also we were given recommendations for the best eating and drinking places, no matter what your taste. We felt very enriched by the whole experience. Both me and my friend have been to Hobart before on separate occasions, but never even made it to the Salananca area. What a special place and what a special tour you get with Peter. A very knowledgeable and friendly guide!
